    I have a Panasonic 27" TV CT27G14A. Manufactured, purchased 1999 and
    never had a problem until my last move.

    TV now appears in black and white.

    I called some local shops trying to get a quote on how much repairing
    this would cost and got an assortment of quotes varying from $90 to
    $130 to start (for evaluation), parts additional.

    Anyone know what the problem might be and how much it might cost to
    repair?

    Any insight is appreciated, thankx in advance.

    Moving it around revealed (or caused) bad solder joint(s) in the color
    processing circuits.

    That set is known for dry joint on the crystal.

    Do you know how much this would be to repair? would this be just labor
    charges? or maybe a board has to be replaced? or is it not worth the
    effort?

    Thanks again for the input!

    Should be just a labor charge, I would guess under $100. Certainly not a
    board replacement, good techs rarely ever do that.
     
  6. Other than Zenith warranty stuff, the one memorable time I had to
    resort to that was with a supposedly under warranty Thomson TX that
    had been urinated in,,,ugh!
