better off sending the unit to the manufacturer instead. Nowadays these kinda repairs is not feasible for repairman to do already as they will need to source for the IR unit and cost will be high, not to mention he have to know every brands and models.
agree but its definately cheaper than manufacturer.
i know, i may be paying more if it ended up with manufacturer. its a gamble. just share an example. i bought a spare keys for my car from the agent. was quoted $25 just to cut the keys. outside, i did it @ $3. if somehow, the keys doesn't fit, i can still afford to purchase another uncut key @ $12 + another trial (for $3) and i can still save $10. however, it minus my time taken to buy another keys and try another mister mint to cut the key.
in this case, the manufacturer already quoted me $150 for home visit exclude parts. ended up, i may as well purchase another new tv or just treat the tv does not have remote control.
