TV Repair


Take it to a repair shop or might be cheaper to buy a new one.

It's best to replace it with a new flat panel. Most TV repairs cost just about what you can get a new one for. You don't say how big it is, but you can get 50" plasmas now for $500, less if you look. Repairing that TV will likely be at least half that.

I don't recommend trying to crack it open and repair it yourself. There are components in TV's (capacitors) that can store high voltage even after the TV has been unplugged.
