Base on our more than 30 years experience: a lot of different symptoms come from the same part or different parts can show the same symptom! (Please take a look at photos below). (Even worse, the same model number, difference parts inside! TVs now made in China, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Korea, Mexico ... etc... Each manufacture using their own parts.)
We are TV doctors. Obviously and logically, the "doctors" must check, test, diagnose… directly on the “patients” before telling what wrong with them. And of course, you need solid, reliable diagnosis to make a serious decision (NOT a guess, maybe this, may be that or "sorry, it was a wrong guess, wrong estimate"...).
All information below just gives you some idea what and where the problem might be…… Please use them at your risk.
Average, 70% of the cases, repair cost should be from $80 up to $300 (except TV' screen, cost around 60% to 120% of your TV price) . It varies and depends on the brand name, size, model number, what's parts, stock availability, the difficulty and labour to do it.
There are millions of TVs and electronics devices on the market. They are totally different from model to model, different in features, functions, design, price, problems, parts … etc. There is no average parts cost, example: power supply board: some cost just $40-$50, some around $100-$300 or even more! So, it is impossible to tell exactly what’s wrong and how much without a diagnosis on it! That is the reason why we need to see your TVs and do an estimate first.
C-No power at all: It could be switching power supply board, power distributor, power controller, starter, main com board, power cord, protection boards, fuses, connectors ...etc
D- TV can not start, clicking continuously: power supply, starter, driver, computer board, capacitors, connectors, keyboard ...
E- Black, no picture, no sound, but has LED pilot light, hear clicks: It could be switching power supply board, power distributor, power controller, starter, sensor, scanner, buffers, computer board, display panel, lamp, lamp driver, back-light, connectors, wiring …etc…
F-No picture but sound OK: video power supply, video processor, scanner, back-light board, back-light power, back-light controller, backlight panel, inverter, buffers, computer board, display panel…etc…
G- Sound distorted: audio amp, speakers, computer board …etc…
H- Intermittent problem: It could be connectors, wiring, internal over heat, over current, over voltage, protection sensors or firmware…etc… in one of the boards inside of your TV.
I- How to make sure if the problem is your TV, not cable signal provider? Before call us, you should connect directly (without going through amplifier, receiver) any DVD player, game console ... to your TV and playing some movie, game... to double check if the problem is still there.
