I just bought this TV and I get that horrible red tint in areas that are supposed to be black. When the whole screen is black, I get those inch wide red tint vertical lines all over the screen. The whole picture is reddish in general. Another thing is I cant get it to display widescreen movies properly. Both DVD and TV are set to 16:9 and I still get the bars on top and bottom. Sometimes I think I see a thin black line across the screen but I'm not sure. I see it mainly when the sreen is white for a moment. I've messed witht the settings for hours and I can make it watchable but its still crappy. I have Magnavox MRD500VR DVD/VCR Home Theater System wich I got for Christmas and kept, because I dont care that my 3 years old is slowly destroing it. I also bought Component Cable from Radio Shack for $30 and used it to connect the DVD to the TV. I'm a newb and I really need some help as I have 30 days to return the TV. Please give some advise on how to fix this. Thanks in advance!
