Bell PVR had no power. AGC have add on Kijiji and list their services. Ad states they repair PVR's and list first problem as "no power" and repair while you wait. Make drive to Whitby because this sounds exactly like the service that I need - they're familiar with "no power" as the ad states and they will fix it while I wait.
I get there and tell the guy my problem. He states drop it off, pay $40 for estimate and he will call me back with an estimate. $40 will be deducted from any repairs - pretty standard.
I ask him what the problem may be and an approximate cost. Tells me he has no idea as he has never seen one with no power - it's the first problem on his list of services. Then tells me it it's the board, they cost $175.
At this point I would rather pay $400 and get a new one. Also think this companies advertising should reflect the services they can perform - if you have no idea the cost to repair a PVR with no power as you've never fixed one before - then don't advertise it. Just didn't appear to be very honest and forthcoming.
