#VIDEO TRANSCRIPT – TV REPAIR IN BANGKOK#
Welcome to the fifty-fifth video of Bangkok Unmasked! The YouTube channel that helps you get the most out of your visit to Bangkok city! If you have a broken TV I have great news for you. It can likely be fixed! And cheaply too. In this video, I’m going to discuss TV repair in Bangkok and Amorn Service Center. Note. Not only can Amorn Service Center do TV repair in Bangkok they can also do computer repair in Bangkok and electronics repair in Bangkok.
Let’s get started!
A cause for heartbreak…
A couple of weeks ago I was heartbroken. The reason? One of my favorite possessions, my 55-inch Samsung UHD TV, developed a seriously annoying fault. The TV was working, but this big white spot appeared slap-bang in the middle of the screen. It was the size of a 50 satang coin, about 18mm. Watching TV or playing PS4 games became quite impossible as all I could do was focus on the damn white spot!
My first port of call was the Samsung Service Center. While the call went comparatively well since the TV is out of warranty all they could offer was to replace the entire screen. The projected cost was THB 22,500. A silly price as I can buy a brand-new 55-inch Samsung UHD TV for around THB 35,000.
My wife’s solution; Amorn Service Center
I started looking into buying a new TV and checked out the prices of 65-inch UHD TVs. When I discussed the cost of a new TV with my wife she pulled faces and told me that we’d take the TV to Amorn Service Center instead. I was skeptical, but I’m glad that I did as I was told! We left the TV at Amorn Service Center and paid a THB 300 service fee. The rep told us to expect a call in 24 hours with a price quote if they could fix the TV. I asked him if my problem was common, and if he thought they could fix it. He told me with a big smile yes, and yes.
Literally a few hours later my wife got a call saying that they could fix the TV for THB 3,000. If we approved the payment we could pick up the TV the next day. Obviously, we said yes.
More than just TV repair
So, TV repair Bangkok, computer repair Bangkok and electronics repair Bangkok. Amorn Service Center can do it all. And their prices are cheap. Or at least they seem cheap to me. The service is also great. If you’ve got some broken electronics I’d see if they can fix the problem before you throw the item, or items, away.
It turns out that Amorn Service Center have fixed both a computer and a rice cooker for my wife in the past. I did wonder how the broken rice cooker started working again!
Note we went to the Amorn Service Center branch in Bang Phlat. It’s conveniently located inside of the Tesco Lotus, Charan Sanitwong. If you check out www.amorngroup.com/find-a-store you’ll almost certainly be able to find a store somewhere near you, as they have branches throughout Thailand. There are 23 stores in Bangkok and stores in most of the major Thai cities. According to the website they have 100+ retail locations. Interestingly, the Amorn Group has been in business since 1981, and they do a lot more than just electronics retail and repair. They also have a solar cell division, a communication devices division, a racing bicycles division, an electronic meter’s division, and a retail development group.
19 years in Thailand and I hadn’t heard of them. If I had, I clearly wasn’t paying attention…
Anyway, that’s it for this video. Expect a new video next week.
