Please check our article on repairing Hitachi ND60200-0050 / FPF35R-SDR54922 / JP5492 for additonal information and hints.
IMPORTANT NOTE 1: Presently Coppell TV Repair LLC does NOT have the ability to test this board in a live TV set. This means we are not going to be 100% certain the board works on neither on the way in nor on the way back.
However, based on a very solid experience with very simlar boards we believe we have a fairly good shot at restoring a burned board at 100%.
Still, until we are able to test the boards we recommend that you leave this service as a last resort.
IMPORTANT NOTE 2: This service comes at a fixed price and includes replacement of up to 3 ICs on the board, where we pretty much break even. If your board has more than 3 bad ICs consider buying a replacement.
IMPORTANT NOTE 3: We offer NO WARRANTY on any buffer board repairs, with our without abillity to test them! This is for the simple reason that the majority of ICs remaining on the board after service would still be old and worn out, thus being prone to failure at any given moment.
We'd work with customers to address issues of our own work (e.g. missing line / cold solder etc.), but for any buffer failures and smoking we just can not afford to give warranty.
On other repairs we do we can make, at customer's request, a video of the board working in a live set, but for blind repairs we can't even do that...so be advised and decide if you want to take the risk!
All packages we receive are placed in a FIFO processing queue.
It takes 2-5 business days for a package to make its way from the back to the front of the queue.
Once picked up for processing, we make money if we manage to fix the board(s) inside for between 30 and 60 minutes.
Of coruse that isn't always possible, not to mention sometimes there is more than one board in a package.
Add to it that we can't know how many packages we will receive at any given day, how many boards will each contain and how bad the damage on them could be.
Please do not call us a mere few days after you sent your package to inquiry about the status of your service...we just do not have the resources to be giving the same answer to everyone and it only slows us down!
Look at the tracking number, see when it was delivered, give it at leat 2-3 business days (preferably four) and if you have not heard anything from us then contact us saying the package was delivered on this and that date and we'll go look for it.
It's in everyone's interest that we work as fast as possible and interrupting technicians (who answer the phones) to make them go search for package in the queue only to tell you it's there doesn't help anyone.
Presently we do not charge in advance for repair services.
Instead, once the board(s) are received, tested, found to be defective, serviced and tested again to success we send a payment request to the customer.
If something along the process - such as unexpected difficulty or finding a board to be functional - arises we contact the customer via email and/or phone and disscuss options.
REQUIREMENTS FOR THE BOARD(S) SENT IN FOR SERVICE
The board(s) we receive must be physically intact and must have not been tampered with or serviced before.
The advertised flat rate for repair service is only valid when the above conditions are met.
Exceptions are possible and often applied for minor repair attempts, but we reserve the sole right to judge if and when we would consider a repair minor.
If we receive board(s) that fails the above conditions we will contact the sender and usually offer two options: 1) returning the board(s) for the sole cost of the return shipping; or 2) continuing the repair service at a higher cost in case of success.
It is also possible, depending on the condition of the board, to eliminate the second possibility and just flat our reject having to service the board.
Subject to situation and availability we may also recommend replacement of the board, again at the higher than advertised price for repair.
In all cases you will have the option to receive your own board(s) back for the sole cost of the return shipping.
