Before I go into detail about my PROBLEM, can I just say what an excellent forum this is! I have learned more from 2 days browsing this forum than I have from 6 months of asking questions of sales staff in retail outlets! Okay, this is my situation! I have just bought a Toshiba 40" widescreen rear projection TV, brand new, for just under £800! This sounds like an incredible bargain and hence my decision to purchase! However, the reason I was given a 40% discount was that the screen has an inch and a half long scratch towards the bottom right hand corner! At the time of purchase, the 'bargain' factor outweighed my usual penchant for being a bit of a perfectionist! However, as I await delivery next week, I am already engaged in psychological mind games about how distracting the scratch will be when viewing a movie! The only thing I can actually remember about the scratch is that from close up in the store, it seemed to take on a yellowish tint (with TV on). Is this possibly because of a tinted coating having been removed? I hope that when it does arrive next week, it will be hardly noticeable from a 12ft viewing distance. However, I would be very grateful for any suggestions about anything I could possibly do to minimise the distraction to viewing. Thanking you in advance.
