"The screen on our Samsung flatscreen "slipped" down about 2 inches. We called
and they took the
into their shop to be repaired." Apparently they sub-contract out work to other repair shops because the
was returned by S&S
from Lancaster, TX. The delivery employee did not want to carry the
back to the
room so we had to help carry it. He then asked to borrow our tools to put it back to together. And after he reassembled the
from the stand he had "extra parts." At that point we told him to leave. The problem recurred 2 days later. Our check was cashed almost immediately. We recommend avoiding

"My 11 year old 52"
would turn itself off 5 minuets after it was turned off. This
is in the living room and is the main
" for the family. Life was not good. I called this
service and gave him the problem and the model #. After reviewing his information he said he couldn't identify the problem over the phone, so would come to the house for a $69.00 service call. I called the service at approximately 3:00 pm and he arrived at my home at 5:30 pm that same day. Amazing! I was very concerned that the diagnoses would not be good due to the age (11 years) of the
, however, I was willing to pay the service charge just to make sure before paying $1000 plus for a new
.
thoroughly inspected the
and found the problem, plus found the cable connecting the
was faulty. His estimate for repair was $275.00 and I was delighted. He didn't have the parts on his truck, but returned the next morning at 9:00 am with the new parts. The
is very large and is built in to a cabinet which is on wheels. Not only did he repair the
but removed all of the housing and vacuumed, brushed and cleaned a huge amount of dust and cat hair that had accumulated over the years. He showed me how to periodically vacuum the grid in back to help keep out the dust in the future. The picture was even better after the cleaning. I was very pleased with his work. Not only was he a great repair man, but was a very nice and pleasant person.

"The owner of the company,
, returned my call within minutes. He asked for the TV make and Serial # and I explained the problem; he felt it might be repairable." Due to the age of the TV,
needed to check his parts inventory and was back in touch within the afternoon. He didn't have the part in stock, but was willing to order it without any obligation on my part! He explained that if the TV couldn't be repaired, I'd be responsible for a flat $65 service call; if the TV could be repaired, the $65 fee would be rolled into the repair cost.
called 2 days later and said the part had arrived, and the following day the repair technician came out. Unfortunately, the problem was one that couldn't be repaired as the needed part is no longer made. The technician,
, was very clean and efficient about diagnosing and then explaining the issue clearly. $65 very well spent - and kudos for excellent service all-round!

My experience if it is less than a 48" screen the screen replacement cost exceeds the cost of buying a new one.  Flat screens are mucho prone to damage from impact, I found out the same lession. Good Luck

Wow - I am jealous - a 40 foot LCD TV - that is what you call an mancave or NBA Arena (No Boys Allowed).

Seriously, the main board for a 40" Polaroid runs about $25-75 depending on model - bear in mind these are not typically slip-in socket boards - you are likely to have to disconnect and reconnect a number of wire connectors, and may have to do some soldering of connections. Google this search term - there are a number of companies selling them on the web - you will have to expand the search phrase with your exact model number to narrow the search - 40" Polaroid LCD TV main board

One thing to do first is call Polaroid - there are a number of comments on the web about a pending class action suit about Polaroid LCD TV main boards catching fire, and several commenters say that Polaroid sent a repairman to their home and replaced the main board for free when it failed, so you might try that first.

Our ViewSonic Model # VS10848-1W, 33"(?) would NOT turn on easily. We'd have to keep the button pressed down 3 to 8 minutes, while the indicator light flickered over & over. After months of this, we couldn't stand it any more. Apparently it's a common problem since I could read online about the parts failing. Otherwise, once on, the TV worked fine.

replied promptly to my message, offering to do the repair right away. I missed the message yesterday, found it this morning and called. Pleasantly surprised to learn he could still make the repair today and was here within a couple hours. He has a traveling brace that unfolds and he could set our large, thin screen tv on it - much like a canvas on an easel.
I really appreciate that he could come to our house. It spared me wrangling the lg TV up & down 17 steps / into & out of the car / and traveling to a shop. Instead, he was here promptly. Very pleasant, amiable fellow. Not too chatty, not too quiet. Just right. I kept busy nearby and enjoyed the bit of conversation but mostly let his concentrate on his work.
He did show me the electronic panels with several parts having bulgy-not-flat-tops, indicative of failure. Well...the TV is 9 or 10 years old. Anyhow, I wasn't inclined to just go shop for a replacement tv. I figure this company just gave us years more of TV life from our Viewsonic.
I'd call them again.

Our house was hit by lightning and we had quite a few appliances that
were damaged, including our main tv. Out of all of the service providers
that we had to deal with (electrician, furnace people, insurance, cable
guy) by far the best experience we had was with
Palo Alto Television Repair Shops Provider Name Locked
at Precision. He
was the only person who made us feel like he had our best interests in
mind and not just trying to upsell us on other services. He was always
quick to respond to questions. When the part that we ordered for our tv
took longer than anticipated to arrive he brought us a replacement tv to
use until ours was repaired. He made a special trip out to the house
just to do that, we wasn't otherwise scheduled to come out. This is what all service providers should be like.

Was not able to repair it on the spot. Was told need certain parts that had to be order. Would take about two weeks.Three weeks
Four week went by , No call to inform me why it was taking so long. Poor communication.
