Ok to give a full picture of what has happened i have to start back 3 1/2 years ago, i bought a 36" HD Toshiba tv (36HFX71 if memory serves) i had the tv less than a month when i turned it on one day and everythign was blue. I turned the tv off then on again and it was fine (all inputs had been blue) so i went and bought the extended warranty for the tv (the store allowed this up to 90 days after purchase) January 2005 came around and the problem occurred again, so i sent the tv in to be looked at and iw as told that the green picture tube was shot. Toshiba no longer made those tubes, so my extended warranty kicked in and they gave me a brand new 44NHM84 44 inch widescreen DLP, i shelled out 300 for another extended warranty on this unit (the first had paid off so i figured it cant hurt right) October/November 2005 i had been having intermittent problems turning the tv on. I would hit the power buttona nd the tv would begin to power on (usually takes 5-10 seconds ive never timed it so im not sure) and halfway through the power on phase it would buzz and power down. typically these incidents would be isolated but one day it took me an hour to power the tv on. So i send the tv in for repairs, almost a month later i get my tv back. the power on problem is still intermittent. End of December 2005 I notice that there is a bar on the right hand side of the screen where the picture is much dimmer, progressively this gets worse and worse as the bar expands across my screen. I send my tv in for rapiars again January 26th 2005, im told by the repair shop (authorized toshiba service depot) that they ahve seent he problem before and its easy to fix just takes a bit of time as the tv ahs to be taken apart. about a week and a half later im told that no they ahd to order a new light engine which would not ship till march 15th. at this point i contacted toshiba canada and told them of the issues ive had, essentially they told me they would look into it and that it would not actually take till March 15th to get the part. I still ahvent been able to get any information on when i will have my tv back, ive missed the superbowl and most of the olympics, and im pretty upset at this point. If anyone has any advice on what avenues i can persue it would be greatly appreciated, its killing me not having a tv right now, im assuming ive just gotten unlucky in having 2 bad tv's but the customer service so far ahsent been very good and my patience is running out and id like some other solution than jsut ssitting on my hands looking at the spot where my tv used to be.
