    this is just lovely.

    my toshiba 16 x9 set just started flaking out on me.

    first it just turned green, solid green.

    reset it, and then there were all sorts of weird wavy lines in r, g, and b.

    turned it off for a while. came on super super bright and darn near white. reset it.

    worked normal for a few minutes, and then started getting red. then dark red, and then darker and darker until it was black.

    i can turn it off and let it rest, and it will be ok for a few minutes, until it starts to to do the red, darker, black thing again.


    Are there any service people in Chicago that will come and do an estimate on site, or do i need to find a truck and helpers and lug this set into a shop?

    has anyone had any sort of similar issues with a rear projection Toshiba set?

    is this going to be expensive to fix? I really hope not. It's been perfect for 2 years, this just started out of the blue today.

    i found a place (A&A Electronics in Chicago) that will come to my house and give me an estimate onsite for $59, and if I like the estimate the $59 will go towards the costs of repair.

    does that sound fair? i really dont feel like lugging this thing around.
