TV sales and repair

There are many factors to choosing a TV, such as picture quality and screen size and style. Keep in mind that a television repair expert can help you determine whether to fix or replace a broken set. In addition, make sure your TV, and its wires, are properly secured so there's little chance a child can tip the set over.

Time is ticking until the big game Sunday and you want a new TV!

But, where to start?

A television upgrade can be relatively affordable, costing hundreds of dollars, but you’ll score a real touchdown with a home theater system.

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.

Tv Sales reviews in Port Charlotte

I needed a new computer. I am the community liasison for my condo community. While searching
Port Charlotte Tv Sales Provider Name Locked
for a new computer, I was told by the associate that the new computers would not download nor run OpenOffice; a freeware word processing program which competes with Microsoft Office, stating that Microsoft had engineered windows 8 in order to keep that from happening. With this information in mind, I purchased Office for $140. Two days later I got the time to set up the computer. I loaded Office. Once the computer was up and running I thought back to the statement of the sales associate concerning OpenOffice and I wondered about the validity of the statement, especially since Microsoft went through a series of lawsuits some time ago concerning just this same type of behavior. I found OpenOffice, downloaded it and ran it.
Port Charlotte Tv Sales Provider Name Locked
and behold, it runs perfectly. There are no issues. This type of sales behavior with regard to a $140 program leads me to wonder what else the associate lied to me about in order to sell merchandise. I contacted the company and immediately got a reply stating that they would contact the store and I was to expect contact from the store within 2 business days. That was 4 business days ago and I have yet to hear a word from the store. I wrote the company again and have heard nothing from them this time. My purpose for submitting this review is not to get my money back, although that would be nice, it is instead to help other consumers from being duped by
Port Charlotte Tv Sales Provider Name Locked
. It is obvious to me that they could care less about the customer and are only interested in sales. This borders on false advertising in my opinion. I have contacted the Better Business Bureau and filed a formal complaint. They have notified me that they are contacting the company. I doubt that this will accomplish much as, once again, it appears that
Port Charlotte Tv Sales Provider Name Locked
doesn't care about the customer. They appear to only care about how much money they can take out of our pockets by any means. I am more than willing to provide the sales receipt and I am willing to demonstrate the operation of OpenOffice on my computer to any representative of Angie's List in order to prove the validity of my statement. In addition, the company already has my name, address, email address and phone number as I included that information with my letter of complaint.

Visited store in
Port Charlotte Tv Sales Provider Name Locked
Air, MD to look for a big screen television. The salesman,
Port Charlotte Tv Sales Provider Name Locked
, was courteous, helpful and knowledgeable and I decided to purchase a Samsung Smart television. Salesman stated that delivery time was between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. I explained that i just needed a phone call an hour in advance of delivery so that I could get home to receive the television and have the old one hauled away. My instructions were to call both the house and my workplace as I was not going to wait at home for 12 hours and miss a day of work.
Port Charlotte Tv Sales Provider Name Locked
said that he would note that and took both of my phone numbers. This point was made very clear by me and I heard no protest from the salesman.
The following Monday at 9:10 a.m., the delivery company called my house while I was at work, and stated that they were there, waited 15 minutes and left. I called the delivery company at 9:45 a.m. and explained that this delivery did not proceed in the manner that I had discussed with the salesman - and which he had agreed (i.e. they should have called my work number as well - 1 hour in advance of their arrival). The delivery company representative's reaction was one of ambivalence. I told the rep. that I was considering cancelling my order.
At 10:45,
Port Charlotte Tv Sales Provider Name Locked
from the delivery company called. She apologized for the mistake and asked if it would be okay if she scheduled me for Wednesday or Thursday of the same week - with the 1 hour in advance phone call. I agreed to give
Port Charlotte Tv Sales Provider Name Locked
another
Port Charlotte Tv Sales Provider Name Locked
based upon the words and commitment of
Port Charlotte Tv Sales Provider Name Locked
as she attempted to resolve my issue.
By Thursday, I had received no phone calls nor deliveries despite my conversation with
Port Charlotte Tv Sales Provider Name Locked
on Monday. On Thursday afternoon, I went to the store to speak to the manager about these events - and was told that there was no delivery order on record with shipping company (thanks,
Port Charlotte Tv Sales Provider Name Locked
!). So, the manager,
Port Charlotte Tv Sales Provider Name Locked
D., met with me, left to talk to the shipping company and returned about 15 minutes later. She asked me to give them one more
Port Charlotte Tv Sales Provider Name Locked
.
Port Charlotte Tv Sales Provider Name Locked
stated that the delivery company would call me that evening and give me a 2 hour window for delivery on Friday. I asked for money off of the price - after setting aside 3 days that week for this delivery to only be disappointed.
Port Charlotte Tv Sales Provider Name Locked
agreed to take off $50 and I agreed to give
Port Charlotte Tv Sales Provider Name Locked
one last
Port Charlotte Tv Sales Provider Name Locked
.
By Friday morning, there had been no phone call and I had had it with
Port Charlotte Tv Sales Provider Name Locked
. I called and asked to speak to the manager. Woman who answered took my name and attempted to locate
Port Charlotte Tv Sales Provider Name Locked
. She returned to the phone and curtly stated, "
Port Charlotte Tv Sales Provider Name Locked
is busy, you'll have to call back later." The
Port Charlotte Tv Sales Provider Name Locked
was rude and hostile towards me.
Port Charlotte Tv Sales Provider Name Locked
, however, did call me back within 5 minutes. We mutually agreed to cancel my order - and
Port Charlotte Tv Sales Provider Name Locked
told me that she would take care of that for me so that I would not have to return to the store. I was grateful for that one, small, positive gesture from this company. Of course, I am still waiting for the refund to post on my credit card yet, so I should withhold judgement on even that compliment.
So, in a nutshell, the
Port Charlotte Tv Sales Provider Name Locked
in
Port Charlotte Tv Sales Provider Name Locked
Air, Maryland does not have its act together. As an organization,
Port Charlotte Tv Sales Provider Name Locked
does not honor the commitments that it makes to the customer, seems completely powerless when it comes to working with their shipping company and ultimately cannot guarantee delivery of their products. Lastly, while I appreciated the manager's attempt to get the television to me, there was no other concrete effort at service recovery made. She was glad to be rid of me and cancel the order - when a good manager should have offered something tangible as a token or gesture of apology (gift card, for example). After all, I made myself available 4 days this week for a television delivery that never happened - due to this company's inability to follow an agreement made with me...and she personally asked for 1 more
Port Charlotte Tv Sales Provider Name Locked
and could not come through for me. I will never again shop at
Port Charlotte Tv Sales Provider Name Locked
and would urge others to consider alternative stores. They simply do not deserve your time nor your hard earned money.
In closing, I drove to a local Target on Friday (the day that I cancelled with
Port Charlotte Tv Sales Provider Name Locked
), found the same television, had them price match it, purchased, brought it home myself and installed it that evening. And at the end of the day, I was kicking myself for ever doing business with this big box store which is severely lacking in customer service (or caring for the customer, for that matter).

I purchased a SAMSUNG SMART TV 60" IN 12/12. APPROX. 8/14, noticed dark spot in middle of TV at bottom - a semi-circle. First available opportunity, called Geek Squad as I had taken the best warranty coverage out
Port Charlotte Tv Sales Provider Name Locked
offered at that time. It was not cheap, by any means; however, I had a 2 year payment plan and this cost was included. As a matter of fact, my last payment will be 12/14 (1 month prior to end of agreement). I was not concerned because I knew the GEEK SQUAD had excellent techs and had experienced computer assistance in the past. I, as well, knew from friends that this type of issue could arise and thus make sure you take out the best warranty available. The cost would have been $12xx.00 approximately, as I believe I noted in paperwork; I paid nothing for this repair. The most important thing I want to stress is the PRIMARY Tech named Sanjay (
Port Charlotte Tv Sales Provider Name Locked
). I have his card but will keep it to first names. He was super. He understood IMMEDIATELY what had occurred; got on his computer/phone and set up the repair of this unit. The actual repair/replacement was done on 9/5/14. I would either have a new TV or a new screen replacement; it was indicated either one would be as good as the other, so to speak, using my words. The gentleman with
Port Charlotte Tv Sales Provider Name Locked
originally was super, too. The lady that was with him during the actual repair was super, great, personable and knowledgeable, as well.
Port Charlotte Tv Sales Provider Name Locked
is very, very professional; very calm, i.e. patient when I was going through my story. There was so much he did; checked; re-checked and answered a foolish question of mine as he was preparing to leave; helped me with the remote and never acted agitated. They were very considerate about my house, belongings, etc. Very respectful. I add, too, that he consistently called, verified times, verified when he was close and maintained contact at all times. It was really something I value, is "talked" about by other vendors but seldom done. He was beyond the call of duty. Really, he made me feel even better about my purchase decision, unit, etc. And, it was a pleasure to have something I did not understand at all so perfectly handled with ease. It was an extravagant purchase by me; one I hoped not to regret, and so far, excellent; don't regret this purchase.

This company is excellent! I have used them for several home technology projects, and they have delivered high quality products (and services) at great prices. They have been able to help me out with all of my technology needs including security cameras, outdoor television installation, universal remote programming, and miscellaneous audiovisual projects. I have used other A/V companies in the past, and this company exceeds them all. The owner (
Port Charlotte Tv Sales Provider Name Locked
) is very professional and punctual. Two of the most impressive customer service attributes are responsiveness and follow through. I have e-mailed
Port Charlotte Tv Sales Provider Name Locked
multiple questions about products, services, and solutions. Every time, he has responded with a detailed e-mail that answers my questions. I highly recommend
Port Charlotte Tv Sales Provider Name Locked
!

We were referred to

Port Charlotte Tv Sales Provider Name Locked
& Vision by
Port Charlotte Tv Sales Provider Name Locked
from Thunderbird Custom Designs, when our new media wall was being built. We are very "low tech" and have had issues understanding the finer points of the new electronics on the
Port Charlotte Tv Sales Provider Name Locked

Port Charlotte Tv Sales Provider Name Locked
to help us figure it all out.
Port Charlotte Tv Sales Provider Name Locked
is unbelievably patient and knowledgeable about his business. He literally spent hours with us, explaining what was available - from audio components to smart remote controls, and we had tons of questions. He made suggestions and advised us on what would work best to accomplish our goals. Our schedule didn't permit us to meet with
Port Charlotte Tv Sales Provider Name Locked
during the day, so he made himself available after 5 pm on at least 2 occasions. We never felt rushed, or stupid. He made sure we understood him and consulted us each step of the way.
Port Charlotte Tv Sales Provider Name Locked
even helped us with two other TV's not associated with the main job he was doing for us. He programmed each of them and made sure they were connected properly. We truly appreciated that as well. I would highly recommend
Port Charlotte Tv Sales Provider Name Locked
and
Port Charlotte Tv Sales Provider Name Locked
& Vision to anyone who needs help installing audio/video components. We are keeping his card in a very safe place, as I'm sure we'll be calling him again for future projects. Call

I order a new tv. They delivered a broken tv. I returened the tv and gave me half the money back. Without telling me there is restocking fees. I followed the policy. Worst customer service. The tv. was broken. I called the manufacture and they would not fix it. Told me to return it . I return it the next day I received the t.v.

Gentleman, I am sending this email to both of you to: 1> I apologize for coming on so strong with my requests and my demands regarding my install. 2> Inform you of ongoing problems and a potential problem next week. It may be chump change for you as a company, but $3,000 dollars is a lot of money for me to invest in this system (beyond the $2,000 for the cabinet). I believed that I would get a completely operational system without having to do running around having a Blu-
Port Charlotte Tv Sales Provider Name Locked
tested. When I called you all back after having the unit tested completely operational at Best Buy, your comments were “Sometimes the unit need to be re-booted”. I think this was either bad diagnostics on your part or the lack of concern since I did not purchase the unit from you. A
Port Charlotte Tv Sales Provider Name Locked
“try this” would have saved me 2 plus hours of running and calling. Your lack of concern to get this system set up as promised certainly is not on your company’s agenda. The Blu-
Port Charlotte Tv Sales Provider Name Locked
player comes on when the Verizon selection is made, it should not come on until the Blu-
Port Charlotte Tv Sales Provider Name Locked
selection is made. It did not come on previously, just after the trip to Best Buy and being plugged back in. The Samsung Smart View software (installed on my computer) does not see the TV since the Smart Hub was created on the Blu-
Port Charlotte Tv Sales Provider Name Locked
player. I did not know what to tell
Port Charlotte Tv Sales Provider Name Locked
when he asked which device I wanted to be the Smart Hub, and told him to use his best judgment.
Port Charlotte Tv Sales Provider Name Locked
did know that I was going to attach a Music Server to the system at the time of install / programming. We did discuss this at length, and he told me to research the solution on the web. My research determined that the Samsung Smart View was the way to go (including my 2 hour conversation with Samsung Tech Support). Now this will not work with the Smart Hub on the Blu-
Port Charlotte Tv Sales Provider Name Locked
player. Where do we go from here? Dump it in my lap? Change the internet connection to the TV? Re-program the Smart Hub? What will this cost me and when can it be done? Verizon will be in about the 10th of September to change the DVR unit and the other control boxes for their system. Will this force another programming session, or are their new boxes compatible with the present presets on the remote? Do I have to research this as well, or do you have any knowledge of this? What will that cost me to get an adjustment after the boxes are replaced? How long will I have to wait to get the program adjusted? This has not been a smooth install since the day the equipment was delivered and I was asked to pay $50.00 plus tax for delivery. Neither my wife nor I was expecting this charge, but paid it to the men who delivered the equipment. Then we were asked to pay another $200.00 for installation, another charge I believed that I pre-paid months before. Your company is the ONLY Company in my 68 years of existence that demanded payment in full PRIOR to delivery and installation. I never heard of any other company requiring this payment method. My roof contractor requested $5.00 down and rest when I was satisfied with the complete job. Just the difference between a outstanding Dalex Construction and
Port Charlotte Tv Sales Provider Name Locked
. Now that you have all your money, I seem to be getting a “your problem” attitude. I am simply requesting that you make the system perform as promised and not to get nickleled and dimed to fix the problems, none actually caused by me. Thank You,
