Summary: The TV itself is fine, however, Sanyo's customer service is quite possibly the worst I have ever encountered. I lost a piece to the base and needed to order a new one. Sounded simple. I called Sanyo, made my request.
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.
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...
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.
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.
