Samsung 19' tv Question

andrelaplume2January 28, 2008

I'd hate to loose this sucker because it just fits on the built-in shelf in my wife's salon. There is a similar sized 19" set at WalMart but I never heard of 'Durabrand' before.

The Samsung is 10 years old. Sometimes it turns on and sometimes not. I thought it was the outlet but no. As crazy it sounds I think it may have to do with the cold. She runs the business Wed-Sat. It gets cold in there in between. This is usually when it fails to run. I did a test and brought the sucker home to my garage. It would not turn on at night. The next day, when the temp was noticably higher it turned on. Is this a known fixable thing? I have access to a person who could make a repair...if he knew what to repair. Local shops suggest I just buy the Durabrand for $119.

Thoughts?

Well in most cases to repair a TV nowadays is more expensive than just buying one. As far as the power issue.. hot and cold shouldn't matter as far as it just turning on. However, there could be a short in the power supply or the wire and of course when its cold the metal or sander contracts and when it's warm it expands. Personally... I own a 19" durabrand and it's ok I guess. The volume doesn't sound that great and it goes from 0 which is not sound to 1 which is too much if your trying to be quiet. I would try a Sanyo. Should be about the same price but better look and probably more dependable. But all up to you of course hehe

Well I got the Durabrand for $120 today. I am very skeptical. I got it because it fit the space. I could not find anything else that would, I would have taken a Sanyo. The picture and sound are fine for where it is used. The remote works from a greater distance than the old one. It supposedly will work in 2009 (new type tuner etc)....assuming the tv is still working then.
