COMMENTS of EXPERTS

Sergey SERBINOVSKY, the director of a teleworkshop Balaton :

- the Surprising case! In colour TVs still with 70 - h years there were explosion-proof kinescopes. The maximum could burn down the condenser, but also that the usual clap would be distributed. The smoke, yes, would go, but more no consequences should be. The scanty chance of explosion could be, if the TV did not have a back cover, the dust has inside accumulated, water has accumulated and there were other similar infringements of service conditions and fire prevention rules.

Vitaly KNYAZEV, the chief of department of protection of the rights of consumers:

- Each technics has certain term of operation. If at this TV it yet has not expired, the man can bring an action against the manufacturer if that, of course, still exists.
