POB 456 Mechanicville NY 12118
True in home service - your TV never leaves your home! Fast service, fair prices. Call Now for service.

I will be closed and not doing service work until the end of the first week in January 2017. I am taking a leave for some much needed rest and re-organization of my shop and storage areas, as well as some travel that I have always wanted to do. I would suggest that if you need in home TV Service that you call Marco's Electronics in Rotterdam, 518-356-4444.


Our basic in home TV repair estimate charge for coming to your home and diagnosing your TV repair problem is $90, with additional charges for outlying areas.

.  This includes a disassembly of your TV if necessary, a diagnosis of the problem and providing you with a price quotation to complete the repair. 

 If  you do not choose to accept the estimate the only payment due is the estimate charge plus applicable NY State Sales Tax.  There may be a slight additional fee for outlying areas including but not limited to Schoharie, Duanesburg, the Albany hill towns, Nassau, and areas North of Exit 15 on I87.

The cost of labor to fix your TV is based on the individual job.  Factors determining the labor price include brand, mechanical complexity of the job, required alignment (if any) after replacing the part, and the technicians feel for how smoothly the job will go based on his 44 years of experience.

Each job is quoted on an individual basis.  We do not have a fixed hourly labor charge.  This gives your technician the maximum flexibility to give you a fair honest price for your repair.

FAREWELL, LAKE ELECTRONICS. Lake Electronic Service in Albany NY closed its doors for good in March 2013. When I started in business in 1971, Lake had already been in business for decades. Lake was the pre-eminent TV and consumer electronics repair service in the Tri-Cities. They will be missed and I wish all their former employees well, and hope that the owners are enjoying some well deserved time off.
