Would you repair a plasma TV at home? I wouldn’t DIY, but some people would!
When a piece of merchandise I want sells for over $100, I *really* have to think hard about buying it. In our family, we’ve got this rule that if an item hits a particular price point (in this case, a $100 minimum price tag), its purchase will require a family discussion and a joint decision to buy (or not). That is, any purchase decision has to be made jointly at this price point. And Plasma TV’s fall in that category: these big ticket items range in price from $600 to $2,500, among retailers I’ve checked. So you’d think that most people would care enough about their possessions to be careful with them.
If my Plasma TV acted up, I’d have it evaluated to see if it was worth repairing and salvaging. If so, then I’d sic the repair guy on it. But that’s not what some people have in mind. Just check out how this one guy decided to repair his nice flat screen TV.

Frustration can sure get the best of us sometimes, though I wonder if my frustration could ever be worth at least $600.
