My 6 year old Vizio LCD 47" TV went out earlier this week. I've already replaced it with a new one, but would like to know if anyone has any recommendations for a good tv repair shop. If it is something that can be easily repaired I'd love to move it to the kids playroom and have it as a dedicated screen for the xbox, wii u and a DVD player. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

hmm

i dont know if they even repair televisions anymore

i did get get warranty repair like 7 yrs ago from sony; but that was for an lcd projection not a flat panel

---

perhaps it's a fuse that caused your tv to "go out" ...if the lcd panel is gone you may have to just junk it

I have had my 6 year-old Samsung LCD TV repaired twice, but both times it was free because it was to fix a manufacturing defect. Something in the circuit board went out; it was a known issue with my model of television. A Samsung tech came out and fixed it; it literally took 10 minutes. A few months later, same problem. I called, they said they'd have to charge for the repair...but I persuaded them not to.

Preston Video fixes televisions; they've been around forever. We had TVs and VCRs fixed there a couple of times when I was a kid, back when it was worth paying to have them repaired. I don't have any experience with any other repair shops.

Last time I checked on having a flat screen tv repaired, it was $700 and I could buy a brand new tv for the same price. I really liked my tv, but that was ridiculous.

Berry's TV - 817-478-6783. Call him and he might (after hearing the problem) be able to tell you over the phone if it's worth repairing or not. He is the most honest and reasonable priced TV and computer repair person I have ever run across.

I've been in his shop and actually heard him tell people how to fix a problem themselves when they were willing to bring it in and pay him to do it. So I'd give him a call, won't cost you anything to do that and it might be something simple to fix. If he can determine the problem on the phone by talking with you, and depending on the problem, he might very well be able to, he'll tell you if it's something that's worth fixing or if you would be better off junking it.

Thanks everyone. The picture looked great right up until it stopped working. The tv immediately cuts off when I power on so I thought it might be related to wiring. I'll check with the shops you've recommended.
