Cheap Plasmas just that CHEAP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Please don't buy a cheap plasma. They are just that CHEAP. I can't even tell you how many times I have had to go out and just tell someone they need a new screen. The parts are about $1000.00 so the money you save now will be spent later. There are alot of companies that are decent that have good prices. Check out LG or let me know if you need help. email@example.com
Who makes the display?
Thanks for the reply. Who makes the display for the Viore monitor? I looked at one and the 1024 x 1024 was really good. What display's are giving problems and I will find out who makes the display screen before I buy any Monitor.
Most of the displays for ALL plasma sets are made by Samsung or LG.
Akai makes them
I called a service number Viore sent me to and they answered "Akai Service" If you go to TigerDirect web site they sell an Akai PDP4206EM plasma TV that looks a lot like my Viore PDP 4210EA 42" plasma. I still have not be able to get service. Regular TV and the DVD part will not play, the DTV part works great. Hope they can fix the rest, I love the TV. I thought I wanted at least a 50" plasma, but the 42" fits great for my living room and puts my old 32" to shame. I also paid the $997 at WalMart at the after Turkey Day sale.
Why would anyone buy something they've never heard of.......
Stay with brands you know. Viore; just looking for
trouble. Cheap is cheap!
42" Viore plasma tv
Where could I buy the remote control and the stands for the Viore plasma tv 42"?
Have you found a replacement control?
i have th stand
i have the stand and don't use them if you want to pay shipping ill send them to you
I need a stand as well. Bought mine on e-bay. No stand.
I just bought it on ebay for $450 and when it gets here there is no stand! I reviewed the add and sure emough a stand is not listed as included. If anynoe out there is not using theirs I would sure appriciate it.
At one point in time, nobody heard of Sony, Samsung, Panasonic, etc. either. So, just because YOU'VE never heard of a company, doesn't necessarily mean it's junk.
I bought an Emerson TV made by Akai - didn't know that at the time. 9 months later it quit. No sound or picture. Called about the warranty, they said to take it to the shop 35 miles away. A week later I went to pick it up; $175 labor not covered by warranty. 3 months later, SAME THING. I went online, googled the model number and found a bunch of the same problems, and a fix!! Ordered two of the screen transformers for $12, soldered one in place of the smoked one and mounted a computer cooling fan. It is a CHEAP TV, cheap components, cheap design. Can't make a silk purse out of it.
Must have just taken the Akai name.
Back in the 1970's, Akai made awesome products, just like Crosly and Teac once did. Akai tape decks were second-to-none. I have an old Vietnam-era Akai 202-DS 4-channel reel-to-reel deck (bought at the PX, actually) that still works. But Crosly and Teac are now true garbage, so the Akai name must have been "bought" also. Those Crosly "turntables" you see in department stores will ruin your album in a single play. I'm saddened to hear that Akai is now trash too.
Are you sure it's not a Viera (Panasonic)?
RE: Any one heard of a Viore Plasma Monitor ? SamsClub
Just bought one....
Wal-Mart where I live just marked these down to $998.00 for a 42". Still in the box. Start checking around because I really dig it. I was informed that the display model was on for over 4 months......without...ever....being....turned....off. Still looked fricken nice. I believe it because I have been in there for months oogling the thing.
Get out there and start looking (not on Wal-Mart.com though).
Where in the world do you live & are there any more at your Walmart. Mine doesn't have any in Salisbury, MD!
viore 43 plasma
viore 42" Plasma on SALE BLACK FRIDAY at Walmart For
Viore broke - any advice?
We bought a Viore plasma 42" at Sam's Club about 2 months ago. Today, there's no picture. The sound works, but not the picture.
Try switching of at the main power switch
Try switching of at the main power switch for a few minutes to reset. If that does not work, reset to factory defaults thru OSM. If that does not work, call Viore customer support.
Viore problem unknown, but fixed
After the picture in our TV wouldn't work, the repairman came and it worked fine. No clue as to the problem. It's worked fine ever since, though.
MY VIORE BROKE TOO!
Same problem sound but no picture, apparently its the video board--I got mine the day after thanksgiving for 997 at walmart. Several of these TVS are having the same problem and the parts are supposedly on backorder however no one at VIORE seems to know when they'll be in. When I called the tech laughed and said ha ha there's no warranty then he said just joking but there's nothing i can do. He told me to call back in 3 weeks. I'm so furious. If you have the same problem please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I would like to send a letter on our behalf -- they are selling defective TV's and not sticking by the warranty. IF YOU ARE THINKING ABOUT A PLASMA TV DON'T PURCHASE A VIORE!
I have scheduled a service...
I continued to call the service techs until they got sick of hearing from me I guess. I have been put on list, so that when the part arrives (sometime around the 27th of January, 2006)they will call to setup my service call. I have continued to call back every four days or, just so they don't forget me. I suggest that everyone having a problem do the same. It finally worked for me. Good Luck!!!

viore plasma tv
We bought this TV on Black Friday at WalMart.
It went out and has no sound no picture within a year.
We have tried to have it repaired and they wanted another $300.00 for parts and service fee.
STAY AWAY from!
so far so good
I just purchase my Viore 42? from WM for $998 the day after thanksgiving as well. I have mounted it on the wall and it was on for about 6.5 hours once I found the right connections. I have a VCR, DVD all running through the amp. I finally connected the cable from my VCR to the ant 1on the plasma and tune TV to AV to get a picture. The DVD connected to the amp and from there a cable out from monitor to video in of the plasma. I have Direct TV but do not have the HD box (due to be installed in two weeks). The picture looks great so far on regular viewing. The DVD looks even better and VHS is VHS. I will give it 2 months after I get the HD box installed to see I got a great deal.
