Plasma t.v. may not have a lot changes in the short term. Since most of the techs are working for large companies,I see an opportunity for guys to get more information.The last two weeks is the first time I have been able to spend some time around a t.v. shop that works on plasma t.v.'s. When you remove the back every thing is in view.Plenty of working space,two or three boards depending on how large the screen is. All the brands look similar,I did not see any diagrams laying near sets being worked on. This means that the information is picked up at siminars,finding a location has been difficult.I am going to try to find out more information about this subject. You have to sign up for an adult education class.Sometimes company rep's get paid to conduct these classes for a per student fee.You may think this just another bad post, if you could get a few $200.00 plus parts fee's you would take another look. So far on this forum I don't recall any serious techs talking a bout there t.v. business.
