I purchased a Panasonic 50" Plasma TV on 2/4/09, had it installed by the GS and everything seemed fine. TV was great until on 3/2/09 something happened and a board blew inside the TV leaving me without a picture this is when the nightmare started. The GS tech came out two days later to check the set and told me a part was needed, he would be back in 2 to 3 days to perform the repair. He returned 8 days later to finish BUT had the wrong part, that was 3/10/09. He said it would another 2 to 3 days and we NEVER heard back. The TV set was taken off the wall and left in the middle of my living room waiting... Finally my called on 3/19/09 to find out the status. She was told that we were scheduled for a 3/30 repair and that the parts had just been ordered. WHY the delay. We were able to get the date improved to 3/24/09 but no better. If we hadn't called we would still be in the dark. While the supervisor Martha (id 407442) was helpful she was not able to explain why such a delay in ordering the part, why it was not shipped over night, nor able to offer any type of loaner or anything. This is all very upsetting, I pay my cable TV bill and do not have use of the TV for a month?? This rest squarely on GS and Best Buy.
I am very unhappy with the service that has been offered. Depending on how this repair goes I think I'd just prefer to have my money back and go elsewhere.
I expect to hear from Best Buy management as this has just been a terrible experience.

Good afternoon jeffrube -
A new plasma television should be a fun and exciting experience, but it does sound like your experience has been fraught with complications! I can only imagine your disappointment at having a failure during your first month! To top it all off, not getting return telephone calls from the service technicians and the waiting - I can completely understand your frustration.
I would like the opportunity to try to make this right for you, so I am sending you a private message. You can check your private messages by first ensuring you are logged into the forums, then clicking the envelope in the upper right hand corner.
I look forward to hearing from you.
