The TV just broke and your warranty has expired. What do you do? Should you repair it or replace it? 

Consumer Reports says that flat screen TVs are incredibly reliable, which is great news. But what if your flat screen ends up breaking down outside of the warranty period? In most cases, it's best to purchase another one. With technology changing rapidly and the costs of repairing a flat screen TV likely costing you close to or more than the price of a new one, it's a no brainer. Even just replacing the power supply (one of the common issues) runs an average of $275 at a repair shop.

The exception to the replacement rule is if you have an expensive and enormous television. If you are happy with it and it's not terribly old, it could be worth getting an opinion at an appliance repair shop.

  • Not many places repair them.
  • Parts are hard to get.
  • Everything is on a circuit board.
  • The board you need has to come from the manufacturer and that can take so much time that most independent electronic repair facilities find it financially prohibitive to try and fix them.
  • Besides, they’re big and heavy and the owner has to unplug and haul them to a shop.
  • Shop owners don’t like having them sit around taking up space while they wait on the unlikely chance that parts will be found.
