Hello All
My plasma tv has died again. It went last year and the bill was about £350 to get it fixed. The guy said it needed a new panel. This time without even looking at it I've been told it will be the same again as this is what always goes with a Plasma. Is this the case? And if so is their anywhere I can get this done cheaper?

If not can anyone recommend a half decent 42-50 inch Plasma for around £800?

Thanks

Paul

Wont the replacement panel you had last year be covered by a 12month warranty ?

Anyway, I recommend the panasonic PX70 or PZ70. Lots of info and opinions on both these in this forum.

I think the panel went just over a year ago so it will not be covered. I have a Hyundai not sure the make its about 4 years old. Just a bit mad the new panels only lasted a short time.

No, you don't get another 12 months warranty everytime it's repaired or repklaced, only from the initial purchase date. Otherwise if it breaks every 11 months you'll have a lifetime warranty.

Doesn't the replacement part have its own warranty, so that if that same part fails it is covered by its own warranty ?

The PX70 has some really good reviews. Does anyone know if this TV is shiny black? Silly question I know but my wife wont let me buy another TV unless its black and shiny. Also is it 1080p?

The PX is black, it's shiny - but does have a silver plastic bit at the bottom. Use google images search to see pics. It's HD Ready and can accept an 1080p input - but it downscales it to display.

The alternative is the PZ70, which is all black, all shiny and 1080p

Lots of info in the appropriate PX/PZ threads in this very forum.


The other alternative is the samsung 42 - I forget the exact model, but its often discussed. Thats black and shiny too.
