I've had to repair two plasmas and an LCD. Each time shitty capacitors were used by the factory so I bought really expensive ones for about 7 cents each.

I couldn't find any of the obvious signs on the board I replaced. Capacitors all looked fine (no bulging etc) and there was no scorching anywhere.

For me it was easy. The caps were popped and leaking like a virgin on Prom Night.

Lots of shit is like that.

What will really blow your mind is that China actually makes cool, high quality stuff now

Capacitors for me too. The T.V. had insurance for repairs and they were going to scrap it because it needed a 'new power supply'. I asked for it. I got a new T.V. and my old one back to fix :)

It's only easy because there isn't much that can really be repaired. It's really just swapping major components

Some stuff can be soldered but yeah, I probably should have went with cheaply instead of easy.
