    Hello everyone

    I have the opportunity to purchase a 50" NEC plasma (model 50VP1, came out about 3-4 years ago) for really short money. However, there is a catch - the TV seems to have a bad power supply/board (shuts off after 15-30 minutes, then after it cools down starts again). The current owner got a quote for $1000 to replace the power board and the diagnostic was a bad 70 volt line (anyone know what this means and if it can be fixed without replacing the entire board). While that seems a little high, I am wondering if there is a different route I can take - purchase the part myself (maybe from an NEC authorized dealer) and have a repair shop just put it in, maybe have the existing power supply fixed etc. Any suggestions, feedback on that?

    Also, can I use another TVs power board if all the specs are the same (I doubt I can find a 50VP1 that is broken but with a good board, but there are others on eBay).

    Any info would be appreciated. You can email me at sergiuv@hotmail.com
    as well. I am located in the US by the way.
