    FCC: Over 99% of indecency complaints are from ONE group

    I find most of the shows on tv not worth watching in the first place so I can't be offended it's on something I want to see. Most groups like that will go out of their way to find something indecent (like if the Cleavers were in the same bed heaven forbid back in the 50's)if it wasn't for tv...

    if you shut the set off and turn it back on and it's still there let it sit off for a few hours then turn it back on do that a few times and it should clear up, to have a tech do it (you don't want to buy a degauser) will be more than you want to spend (figure a service call to the house starts...

    Anyone know anything about microwave ovens? Mine died.

    if the fuse blew you'd have no lights, the problem is more than likely the magnetron how old is it and what brand (ge warranties their regular line ones for 10 years parts)

    brands is a personal thing, go to specialty stores (not cc or best buy) given your budget just do speakers (a good hu can eat more than half your budget so can a good set of speakers)

    bad solder joints are increasing in every brand of tv (you want to see bad look at the repair history for zenith/lg)it's because they are doing so much by machine trying to get them out faster and cheaper than yesterday somethings gotta give, and "we" (consumers) won't pay more on average
