Bush LCD40883F1080P not turning on - repair

Posted by Peter Hancock on Thursday, March 19, 2015, In : Repair 
These 40" LCD tvs tend to get issues after 3 years due to some sub-stand components. However, they give a very good HD picture pound for pound and have plenty of connection ports.

If your Bush LCD40883F1080P is not turning on, with the white standby light briefly flashing off and then back on, then it may have the same issue to what we have seen come into the repair shop.

If you want to bring it in for repair then we will upgrade the components and potentially save you £100 or more on a new tv...

Sony RDR-HX890 stuck on Guide Plus after update

Posted by Peter Hancock on Tuesday, November 26, 2013, In : Repair 
There has been an issue with the Sony RDR-HX890 HDD/DVD Freeview recorders since Sony did a recent firmware update. It can affect the machine by forcing it to use Guide Plus for recording - unfortunately this feature is no longer supported and the Digital Guide needs to be unlocked.

This is something we can fix, and once done, you will be able to record tv again!

Cracked Laptop/Notebook/Netbook Screen Replacements

Posted by Peter Hancock on Monday, March 11, 2013, In : Repair 
We can now source and replace most laptop, notebook and netbook screens. Due to the number of different types of screen we can only offer a rough repair price quote upfront. Once we have stripped down the laptop and spoken to our suppliers we can then give you the actual repair cost.

Because of this, we are waivering our usual upfront Inspection charge.

Labour charge is fixed and total repair cost soley depends on the size and type of screen. Price of screens tend to fluctuate so I can only sug...

Toshiba Freeview Issues - No Picture or Sound

Posted by Peter Hancock on Friday, May 11, 2012, In : Repair 
There is a known fault with the Toshiba 32C3030D / 32C3030DB series where the Inbuilt Freeview can suddenly stop working. It will lose both sound and picture and if you press menu then the menu screen only briefly appears. You may find that external sources (e.g. DVD player) will work perfectly fine.

We now have a permanent fix for this and can have it repaired on the day it is brought into the shop. The charge of the repair should be under £50, and in my view, a worth-while fix as the Toshib...
