I actually found one of these at a local Sears outlet last year. It was an open item and came with a 3 year replacement/repair warranty for $660. I missed out on the deal, but I kick myself everyday for passing on that one.
I own 42LE8500 and I'm wondering if it can output AC3 (Dolby Digital) out of digital audio out while playing media files off USB. I'm thinking of sending the digital out of the TV into AV receiver and to the speaker system.
About two weeks ago I noticed one of the zones on the right side roughly mid height of my 55LE8500 was dim. I still get the picture behind it, however every other zone is brighter than this one zone, and it looks like it cant turn the brightness on. Anyone have a recommendation on how to fix this, is there a way to reset the zone within the menu of the tv?
