Hi,

My 2 1/2 year old Samsung HCN4226W recently went on the blink (no picture, short bursts of picture/no-picture). The repair lady diagnosed a faulty motherboard, >$500 to repair. No extended warranty, of course...


We have too many other projects going on right now to replace it with what I'd like. Would I be ridiculous to repair it for that cost? Are there sources where I could buy a motherboard myself and replace it (I'm experienced at repairing computers & servers)? I'd greatly appreciate any advice or experience anyone might have.

-Bill

There's that exact model on ebay right now for $499.99
Its a local pick-up in houston, tx but the price should indicate if the $500 repair cost is worth it or not
