I realize that crt's are cheap enough that people rarely repair them, but it is possible to repair many components that commonly fail. Since one might spend $1,000's of dollars on LCD or Plasma screens, it seems worth considering whether they are repairable (and whether one type is more repairable than the other). Is there any obvious difference from a repair standpoint? Seems that plasmas run much warmer (some might say they run hot) - maybe that will cause additional electronics wear & tear as the circuit boards heat/cool and expand/contract? Am I correct that the panels themselves (LCD or Plasma) are non-repairable and if that goes, the whole unit is basically worthless?
Any insight would be appreciated.
