- Real Name
So I recently picked up one of these amazing units for free from a man on Craig's List who was looking for more space in his new Townhouse. He said that there is a minor repair in need... The Problem: When I turn it on, the screen is green with bright green Horizontal lines that are a little wavy and unstable. The set remains on for around 30 seconds and shuts itsself down. Does anybody know what the problem is? The guy who gave it to me said that this has happend before and it only costed about $150 to fix and took the repairer about ten minutes... Something about a V-chip or some chip that doesn't allow you to watch illegal copies of DVD's (I didn't even know that technology existed... lol) Anyway, If it is in fact something simple, I'm sure I can fix it rather than hire someone else to do it. Also, the green lines make me concerned that I may have knocked something out of whack during hour and a half drive home with it...
