    I didn't know they made modern day electronic devices that were worth repairing.

    Well they would be worth it if you could consitantly find cheap parts for them, I mean the way that I do it is if I find something that is broken or a friend has something I will look and if its not the power supply, or if one of the boards (the one I know that is bad) isnt really cheap then I just toss whatever it is.

    But you luck out sometimes, like I got a 32" Samsung TV with a bad video controller board, that board was 30 bucks shipped, its a nice TV for 30 Bucks, if it was the video input board then it would have cost about $120, not so worth it.

    A friend got an older 40" Samsung from the dump, paid $4.83 for a few Caps and its fixed perfectly.

    Its all about how easy it is to fix haha, looking for amplifiers and things like that where you would find the parts in years past (or would have equivalents) doesnt work anymore due to companies use of proprietary parts.

    I go to the laundry room in the basement! I have a treasure chest there (well giant cardboard box) that is full of old/new boards with many good parts. My fiance does not like it but hey... she gets to keep the cats and I get to keep the treasure chest! I get these from places like clist, friends, family, ect..

    What do you mean by replacement parts??? If you are wanting to replace an entire board, yes that would be pretty expensive. Now if you are down to component level, prices are pretty cheap, except for some proprietary parts. Most of the expense comes from the labor. The smarts to know which little do dad needs replacing.
