Around this time, back in 2004, we noticed that our 29″ Sony Trinitron TV was having a hard time starting. We’d turn the power on, but the picture would be static, and then blurry until the set had warmed up for 15 to 30 minutes. The problem had actually been going on for a number of months, but it was getting worse.
We looked into getting the TV repaired, but found that we could purchase a comparable TV for about the same price as it would cost us to repair our 10 year old television set. So, we decided to take the plunge and treat ourselves to a HDTV ready television.
After spending a couple of weeks doing research on the various types of HDTV ready television sets we decided to get a Samsung. Well, we went through two RCA’s first, but that’s a whole other story!
The following story is one of the main reasons why I have decided that anyone purchasing a flat panel TV should have it professionally installed rather than using the services of companies like BestBuy or Circuit City or trying to do it on your own. Instead, I’d recommend that you get professional TV installation for commercial or residential locations from HDInstallers.com.
The television set and the home theater system that we’d ordered were delivered to our house about a week after we’d made our order at the store.
Unfortunately for us, the company that we purchased our new television set from didn’t offer an installation service. That’s probably a good thing though because I know a couple of people that have used the services of boxstores for their flat panel TV installation and they weren’t all that happy.
We ended up setting up the television and the home theater ourselves. It was very difficult. We have a vcr, a dvd player, a multi-CD player, and a DVD recorder that all had to be hooked up to the TV and the home theater system. It took us at least two weeks to get everything working properly.
If we had used a professional HD installer, the technician would have discovered several of the problems that plagued us right away. You see, we had a weak cable signal. A professional installer would have discovered that as he or she set up the television, home theater and all of our other electronic equipment and they would have either fixed the problem for us perhaps by installing a booster, or let us know that for a better picture we’d have to have the cable company come out for a service call to fix our weak signal.
Having our flat screen television professionally installed would have also allowed us to use our new television within hours of it’s arrival in our home. Instead, it took us weeks to set everything up ourselves.
We wasted time. We were frustrated. We weren’t happy with our TV because the picture wasn’t as good as we had expected thanks to the weak cable signal – and the last thing that you want when you’ve just spent a few thousand dollars on a new TV is to be unhappy with the picture! We also argued quite a bit as we tried to set up the television ourselves. It just wasn’t the new television experience that we’d been hoping to have.
