* Essex Radio and Television Service knows that the price of new electronics has fallen over the years, and that parts can sometimes be difficult or impossible to find. In those cases, it might be better to replace an item than to repair it.
Our rule of thumb is that if a repair may approach half of the cost to replace, we will recommend that you replace the item.
Also, depending upon the item and its problem, we may charge a nominal checkout fee to cover the time to diagnose the problem. This fee will apply towards the repair if that becomes the chosen path.
