Vizio entered the American TV market as a complete upstart in 2002, with 3 employees and a $600,000 operating budget—total. By 2007 company revenue exceeded $2 billion—an amazing feat. Known for their highly aggressive pricing vs their top competitors, Vizio hit the American market hard, quickly laying waste to far-better-known manufacturers. In their wake come other ultra-low-cost Chinese televisions, further challenging the position of the legacy Japanese manufacturers—and the repair market generally.

Questions have arisen on the feasibility of Vizio tv repair: is it feasible to perform flat screen tv repair of these low-priced TV’s, usually assembled with cheap labor in China? As we have stated in our free White Paper, “Is It Worth Fixing?,” the answer is: it’s a definite maybe. Almost always, each repair prospect must be individually assessed by a senior tech, then researched and sourced, then quoted to the customer. Not all televisions are suited for repairs—we only fix 90% or so!

Here, proof positive of the primary principle: when in doubt—Call the Professionals! Call Bammel TV!
