I feel your pain with this incident, I’ve been lucky with lightening only ever lost a modem in ten plus years of renting/owning houses here.
Surprised the ink was still visible or readable on your receipt jacko, always a bug bear of mine in Thailand. Always promise myself to take a photo of receipts after buying something new, but never get round to it.
Like the quote “the tv is not for you it a smart tv” 555.
Yes the printed receipts that come out of the tills here do fade off pretty quickly, it is a conspiracy!
Now I am looking for somewhere to take a few items to be fixed, electronics. I have one item at Numchai already, hopefully to be fixed free under the extended warranty I got there. As to others, well I read some negatives about both Numchai and Samsung service centre being rip-offs. The latter isn't a great place to park and carry a bloody great TV in either!
I was experimenting with my pad and using wireless connect to use my TV as a display (only supported on Win 8.1 and 10), but the time lag when using a wireless keyboard is annoying, and the pad's little processor is struggling with all the work. My Win 7 laptop, with the fried HDMI,, well I will try a VGA to HDMI convertor. I set that up for a friend once and it worked OK... just not sure it will work for UHDTV. Might be a new laptop yet!!!
So, I need a good repair place, easy to park and load and fair and reliable. So leave Tukcom, Samsung and Numchai out (or tell me I am wrong!). I have heard rumour of a paraplegic guy up Nerm Plab Wan who does mainly TVs. I got 1 TV, 1 Home theatre and a cheapo DVD player I would like to get fixed for not too much.
