Nearly all TVs, no matter how new or old, can usually be repaired – unless you got mad and threw it out a window. However, most standard problems, like fuzzy or distorted display, no power, power but the TV won’t turn on, and sound and digital issues can usually be fixed by a brave DIYer, or a skilled service tech. For simple fixes, depending on the cost of parts and the labor rates, you can reasonably expect to pay roughly $100-$250 at local or independent repair shops – more (probably a lot more) if you go to chain box stores. A rule of thumb when considering repair options: if the repair costs are 50 percent or more than the value of the TV, consider replacing the TV instead. Prices for quality TVs have dropped over the years.
