Uh-oh, I'm getting nervous now!
On Black Friday '07, I, and two other friends on my recommendation (ugh..), purchased a Panny 42" px75u from P.C. Richards. Last week, one friend told me his tv just blacked out, and wouldn't come back on. He didn't mention anything about blinking led's, though. He said he called Panny and a rep was at his house fixing the set within a couple of days. He said the cs rep, and the tech sent to his house were not surprised at all about his problem, and seemed like it was something they were very familiar w/. The repair tech told him it had to do w/ a small currrent surge that could get past the surge protector and hit the tv, frying the main board, that sound right?
Now, he's all worried that this could happen again, but not be covered under warranty.
Then yesterday, my OTHER
friend called me all pissed off, 'cause his tv just shut off on him. I told him 'bout my other friend's experience, and he's trying to get his fixed now.
Now I'M getting nervous. I'm afraid to even go turn my set on!!
What assurances is Panny giving their customers? If a new part is placed into the tv, is that part now covered under a new warranty if it becomes defect again in the future??
We may have gotten these tv's for a steal ($721 out the door!!
) but that doesn't mean they're disposible!! Mine has a 5/07 birthdate, and theirs have an 11/07 birthdate. This SHOULD NOT be happening to brand new tv's!!
