I don’t think anyone does anymore
I remember going to those shops when i was young they all closed up though (except maybe for one on Coney Island)
Its sad but we are in a generation of replace everything if it breaks just not worth fixing stuff anymore

I think the problem is a lot of time it cost more to fix it then to buy another one. We live in a disposable world, though we are running out of things, well outside of garbage at the city dump.

Yeah well people get that mindset even though its not so true or its as simple as sending it in for warranty
A while back i was doing the ebay thing and i bought a lot of surface keyboards 5-10$ Each most of them were under warranty so i contacted Microsoft had them all replaced for free and resold them for $40 each, well its possible i got lucky but it showed me people didn’t even bother to see if there was a warranty they just sold them as broken

You should google maps search it maybe a repair shop is in your area

It's a 51" Panasonic Plasma TV.

I got some water on the back, just a little, but the picture went out. At this point I'm hoping it's going to dry and then start to work otherwise a board may need to be charged. There is no smoke or burning smell.

That couldve fried lore than the powet board, which at that point its cheaper to replace it. Between the power board and audio/video board it could easily go to aboit 800 and thats if they make the parta still cause pannosonic not making tv’s any more or plasmas

If it's $800 I wouldn't invest that much into the TV, I would just buy another one. The sound was working, so I'm not sure if it's that board or another one.
