Should I repair my LCD TV?

Episode 1046 (2:23:57)

Steve from Hermosa Beach, CA

Steve has a 47" Vizio that he's had for a few years. But after an hour, the color begins to die out until he turns it off for awhile. Should he get it fixed or just buy a new one? Leo says that it sounds like a poor solder connection, but at $400 for a repair, it probably isn't worth it since a new TV would cost $600.

All HDTVs have interpolation to handle with motion, but Steve doesn't like it because it looks plasticy. Leo recommends turning that off.

Leo says that LED is the way to go. Also, Steve should get the backlit LED models, not the edge lit.
