SERVICE DESCRIPTION - PLEASE READ IN FULL!
Coppell TV Repair offers REPAIR SERVICE for power supply board DPS-283AP as shown on the picture and used in a number of 42'' LCD TVs.
REPAIR SERVICE means that you have to send us your malfunctioning board which we will attempt to repair, test and return back to you.
VIZIO part number for this board is 0500-0507-0330 and other numbers could have also been assigned for different TV models.
Typical failure indication is completely dead TV - no standby indication, no response to any button. Of course the same may happen due to other reasons, but this is certainly the most common one.
Failure to start up (even if front LED is present) is also a possibility.
Search our blog for instructions on how to test the board locally for proper output voltages.
Typical processing time for the repair is within two business days; if we have any probems that require more time (be it overload or technical problems) we will contact you with an update and request for more time.
We have a fairly high success ratio, but we still do not guarantee success; if we can't get the board to work, though, you will not need to pay.
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.
Minimal charge / diagnostic fee
If a board arrives and is determined to be functional we charge up to $25 for diagnostic fee.
For explanation of why do we do that please read this article.
We ask that the board arrives here in good physical condition and without traces of tampering. If someone (other than us, that is) has already attempted to service the board then please contact us with a description/pictures and do not directly place an order. We reserve the right to refuse service to boards that have signs of repair attempts.
If you have any questions do not hesitate to ask.
