Question about Philips 60PP9202 60" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

2 Answers

Repair or replace

My husband's 60" tv purchased in 2005 was damaged by water when basement flooded. Should we try to repair or replace it. Average cost from last repairman was $1700 to repair, more than what I paid for the tv initially.

    thanks for your advice. It appears that we will replace the set as it is cost prohibited to repair. I appreciate all the good advice.

It depends, if the set was plugged in at the time of the flood and or if there was any electrical power going to the set at the time. If the set was unplugged and was not plugged in afterwards then if you can open the back of the set and sit it out in the hot sun exposing the board and cover the glass so it does not melt, there is a possiblity that when completely dried up it may work. Try with caution thou.

If the water in the basement came up high enough to cover the main boards in the projection TV, then I would not even attempt to repair it - the cost of replacing the boards, if available, and the realignment would be as much or more than a new set.

My husband saids run the dehumifier on low setting to take out dampness in the basement? I said no, run the dehumifier on higher setting like 50 or 60 to take more water out of he basement? What should...

Actually, your husband is correct. The settings reflect the amount of humidity you want to remain in the house. I really don't think you want to leave 50 to 60% humidity in the house.

35% removes the greatest amount of humidity.

Hope this helped answer your question and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Basement flooded, combustion air flap employed.any way to repair?

So you had water enter the burner combustion chamber through the access panel. That can be cleaned out, but was the gas control valve just above it on the water heater submerged under water as well? If so, do not use it or try to repair it. It is unsafe to use and the control must be replaced. Now whether or not it's worth while to replace just the gas control, depends on the age and condition of the water heater itself. Also, is this covered under your home owner's insurance policy? Damage from flooding is usually not covered in a standard policy,unless you had it added specifically. But it is covered if you had a water line break which resulted in the water damage. You should find out before you proceed with changing the control. We had the latter occur and our insurance co (State Farm) covered everything from clean-up to replacement). Hope that helps. Douglas

You're not done yet. The washer pump probably is leaking. Lots of basements being pumped out in this area as a result of the snow.

My basement flooded and now my gas water heater

Was the gas valve under water? If so it must be replaced. If not, and you're sure you are holding in the button for at least 30 seconds after the pilot is lit, the pilot will need to be removed disassembled and cleaned. Also, the thermocouple may or may not be bad, replace it anyway (for the cost @ Lowes etc just not worth it).

You have more than one board that got water on it. Most likely a lost cause. Check with home owners insurance for repair or replacment value.
