Great TV - Very Susceptible to Power Surges

Anne, Amazon
28 July 2014
  • Summary: I got this 42" TV off of someone for $20 because it wouldn't turn on at all. They said they had a power outage, and then the TV no longer worked, so obviously a power surge got it. Wasn't hooked up to a surge protector. A new power board brought it back to life. The problem with the old board - one of the 8-pin IC chips had gotten fried. The surge also damaged the HDMI chip, so none of the HDMI inputs worked. A new main board fixed that issue right up.

Great TV

Maximum Rico, Amazon

  • Summary: Didn't buy this from Amazon, but we've had this TV since the fall of 2010 or 2009 and it still is great. They may never get a refurb back in stock but if they do I'd get it in a heartbeat. I know that once ours dies it will be a sad day in the home (and wallet) unless it's just a control board or PSU.

Good price deceives the consumer!

Doretta L Boazzo, Amazon

  • Summary: I also purchased a 42 in. Sanyo LCD flat screen at Walmart in 2011. Now here in 2014, the sound has gone out for no apparent reason. It worked one day and not the next. Trouble shooting with the cable company and then the Sanyo technical service reveals it is a Sanyo issue-of course the warranty is over now!....repair cost is half of the purchase price. No thanks! I'd expect a TV to last longer than 2 1/2 years! Stay away from this product!

Great TV

  • Summary: I bought this TV 4 years ago and it has been a great TV. The picture quality was great 4 years ago, nothing compared to today's TVs but this was a great purchase. I purchased it from Walmart for a fair price and its still going strong, no problems at all.

Sanyo DP42849 TV

beckiraye, Amazon
9 July 2012
  • Summary: This tv seemed nice for a while. It lasted 1 and 1/2 years. It just went out one day. The green light comes on and that is it. The tv repairman said it will cost me $100 just to look at it. And if it is the power supply that is another $100. But it could be other things. After reading many reviews on this tv it seems to be a piece of crap. Thanks Sanyo. Never will I buy anything with your name on it.

Sanyo is SCAMMING Customers BIG TIME!

Surfer Girl 27, Amazon
30 January 2012
  • Summary: Bought a Sanyo 47 inch LCD TV from Walmart less than 1 year ago & it kept turning off randomly for no reason. We just dealt with it for awhile, but tonight my husband & I read TONS of reviews about other Sanyo TV's doing the same thing, & worse - turning off & staying off & not working at all! I saw this & read it to my husband who said, "At least we don't have that problem." Minutes later, we did. Our TV just turned off & won't go on anymore.
