Remember the "good old days" when Circuit
City would battle it out with LA Tronics, and Best Buy, and Good Guys, and department stores had big electronics sections?
And then there was "Crazy Gideon's" in Hollywood and downtown with "insane prices" and TV commercials,
too. Well, those days are over. But you can still get some deals and best buys on new and used TVs and electronics
and we'll show you some of those deals here. Shop around, and check our various pages such as "Computers" and our various "discounters" to find their deals. Also, here we will show you places to
have your electronics repaired and serviced.
ARC TV IN BURBANK FOR SERVICE AND REPAIRS OF YOUR TVS AND ELECTRONICS
Update May 15, 2013 ARC TV in Burbank is the kind of place you really need. They
offer quick service and low prices to repair TVs, stereos, CD players and they can even repair and service microwaves, computers,
lamps and small appliances. This is the kind of place where you bring a favorite appliance or TV to be repaired so that
it will last longer and ARC TV will help to keep your older appliances and TVs out of landfills and ARC TV will help to keep
you from having to buy something new when you could really use that money for something else.
There are several important reasons to repair rather than buy new and replace. At ARC TV they believe that
the new electronics may have lower prices but they are not built to last as long as in previous model years. Many TVs
made today, they say, may last only one to three years before they need to be serviced or even replaced.
If your relatively new or even new TV needs to be serviced it just might need some small part and then
your TV could give you many years of service. Often when TVs are brought to ARC TV the replacement parts are better
than the original parts that were used. ARC TV has found that 60% of items such as DVD players, CD players, VCRs and
printers just need to be cleaned and lubricated. Another 25% only need to have some belts changed to get them working
Smaller items such as toasters and toaster ovens can also be repaired and
might only need to have switches cleaned. Curling irons and hair dryers can be repaired -- perhaps only a new cord needs
to be installed. Lamp not working? Bring in lamps for a new cord, switch or socket.
ARC TV also installs roof top antennas.
ARC TV also has sales of
new TVs and by ordering them -- instead of warehousing them -- they can actually save shoppers some money. Looking for
a gently used TV because that will fill your needs? ARC TV has them. Our Best Buys TV Show report is below.
ARC TV can also transfer videos and film to DVD and audio to CD to preserve your memories, and they can make copies for friends
SPECIAL OFFER Mention you saw this report and you will get $7.00 off any service they offer
that is over $38.50 and $10.00 off on any new or rebuilt TV, stereo, DVD, CD or phonograph.

BEWARE: A TRICK IN THE TV BUSINESS
Update August 4, 2011 If you go shopping for a new TV beware this trick that many stores
use: they put lower quality, lower priced TVs right next to the higher priced TVs with better-- but more expensive-- pictures.
As you look at the various pictures a salesman is likely to point out the differences between the picture of the budget model
TV and the higher priced model right next to it. But remember this: when you get home, your TV will not be side-by-side
with a higher priced model. So concentrate on the model you want to buy and ask yourself "is this picture good
for me?" Don't make the mistake of asking yourself "do I want to pay more for that better picture?"
When you look at a higher priced TV with a better picture you might be falling into the retailer's "comparison trap"
that's designed to make you spend more.
