Hey fellas... I'm hoping someone here can shed some light on this issue. Within the past two days (and might I add right around the 1 year warranty expiring) the set has just gotten really dark. It is effecting all inputs. If I crank up the contrast and brightness, the settings sometimes stick, and sometimes don't. However, I am scared to keep them set to those levels, as I don't want to burn in the set. Secondly, I'm hoping to get some insight on warranty service, assuming the problem can't be fixed by me. I bought the TV at Sears, so should I buy an additional warranty though them? Does Toshiba offer one? Any other thoughts would really be helpful, as well. I'm very frustrated that 1 year into owning this TV, it's on the fritz now. I'm out of work, so I can't really afford to have this problem right now. Thank you all for reading.
