    WLF...PC Richards blows.

    Watching the Yankee post-game show and lost the picture on my SOny Bravia...rebooted the cable box...now nothing... no picture or sound and the power light is on. The box is fine, I switched it out and it works on the other TV's.

    This is the sixth thing I bought from PC Richards in the last 4 years that has crapped out....( washer, dryer, Refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher).....and their customer service/repair companies blow...

    I'm still waiting for a part on a friggin washer machine 5 weeks after the thing broke for the third time (Whirlpool Cabrio).

    I highly recommend no one buy anything from them....and dont waste your time on their service contracts...mouthbreathing dolts.

    ANyone know anything about TV's?

    I went to Sears in GC last week and bought a GE that now sits next to the Cabrio.

    Sounds very similar to my experience, but its not me.

    Spent a ton of dough there, the repairmen have to come 2-3 times after a 3-4 week wait for parts...they are unfamiliar with the equipment...etc.

    Already made them replace the washing machine once under threat that I would drop it off on the sidewalk in front...and now its broken...again.

    Now the farging TV, which cost 4500 four years ago.

    seriously i had a similar problem recently. I unplugged the tv for a few minutes. when you plug it back in and turn the tv on with the remote control keep the power button pressed down...this reboots the tv somehow.

    Nah...actually this was all proceeded by a TV and cable box in another room rebooting on its own while my daughter was watching...could a power surge or something have fried my board?

    No good....though I can hear my neighbor screaming about something now...

    Thats implied in all my complaints.

    This whole thing has now taken a sinister turn;

    I just told my wife, away on business the bad news...she is now trying to parlay this into a project wherein I remove the TV and create a half wall between the den and the kitchen to "open it up".

    Its coming fast a furious...wtf.

    I've always found PC Richards to have very good customer service and excellent prices. Never had a problem with a single thing I bought from them. The one complaint I might have is that they push a bit hard on the extended warranty pitch, but that's a fair trade-off for their willingness to price match anything you may find at Sears or Worst-Buy.

    I dodged that with incessant complaining about the difficulty of obtaining a boat captains license.

    Its not like she was going to clean and winterize the farging thing.
