    Hello Friends at Home Theater Forum!

    I am new to the board, and after catching the surround bug, I have joined you all in easing the difficult transition from two channel, EQ-endowed stereo to multichannel...

    Something happened to my system the other night which completely affected my Sony 27" Trinitron; I was leaning behind my wall unit to make some adjustments to my surround receiver's speakers, talking on my cordless phone, when suddenly there was like a surge and my call went dead, became static, and when I turned the TV back on, the picture on the screen was very weird---like the edges of the image were "cut off" and "jagged" somehow; I thought it may have been a Cable TV problem, but it happens when I turn my DVD player on, too---so its some kind of damage to the picture tube...has anyone ever heard of this? Now, on top of having unconnected wires in the back of my surround receiver, I have no TV set---well, the picture is screwed up anyway. What began as a simple project to reverse some left and right channel connections in my receiver has become a nightmare---should I let a Sony dealer look at the TV, or should I buy a new one?

    If I look into getting a new set, what do you guys recommend in the 27" range? I wanted to definitely consider Sony again; but I would consider Panasonic, Toshiba and Mitsubishi, as well. Any thoughts on my problem, and suggestions for a new set, would be greatly appreciated.
