I received my new PRO-70X5 in Jan2012. It has been working great, except the remote stopped connecting with the TV about 6 months ago. I had purchased a spare genuine Elite PRO-70X5 remote, which I fired up, and it connects with the TV fine. So it appears that the original remote went bad. I decided to order another spare genuine Elite PRO-70X5 remote.

Has anyone news about the new Sharp TV'S? CES 2015 Sharp said it was coming out with a 80in WCG FALD. What was interesting, list posted at that time of six grand, if it is like the pro, look out Samsung someone is about to run you over! Samsung's 9500 is almost the same price of LG'S OLED"S.ARE THEY NUT"S?

Have a 60" Elite. Original owner, bought from Chris at Cleveland Plasma back in Dec 2011. No problem with the IR. Did buy a spare board a year back as a "just-in-case". Love this frigging thing. Have 17,000 hours on it. Yeah...that's a real ####. Between in-laws and...working different hours than my wife this puppy gets a real work out. Just got it calibrated last summer by Greg L. at Lion Audio Video Consultants Inc. Am very pleased with this set.

I've had my Elite 70" since Nov 2011.
Never had one problem with remote or any thing else with the TV.
The TV continues to perform flawless.
I did not buy the extended warranty...never do.
Is there a TV out there for sale now that will surpass this Elite?
I have not been keeping up with TV's since I got the Elite.
Just wondering if anything 70"+ has it beat or equal in PQ.

Yup, LG 77" OLED, if you can afford it.

Infamous IR sensor failure strikes again

Darn! My PRO60X5FD IR sensor just went out, and it's also one month after the 1-year Sharp extended warranty. It So it took 3+ years to fail.

Anyone want to sell me their spare IR sensor board (part no. DUNTKF909FM01)? I did a search but they seem to be unavailable. PM me and I'll make it worth your while... :-)
