If you look closely can you still see a faint picture ? Just wondering if the backlight has died, my mum had a tv from the warehouse and the backlight failed on it. they just replaced it with a new one as want worth fixing apparently
Try calling your local store, rather than the service line, we had an issue with a blu ray player that died after 6 weeks or so, and the store just said bring it in and they swapped it, no waiting for service line etc. Your mileage may vary, of course.
Will call them on Monday. They dont have anymore in store but maybe they still have some, they were selling them on their online specials not that long ago. Stink having to put it together again. Was hard work getting it out of the box.
