I am waiting on appointment for mine to be looked at under warranty.
Im kinda pissed about the whole scenario.
If they repair it, it means i paid $220 for a warranty, that ended up being a repair cost.
Then im stuck with a "Repaired" Tv most likely with no real warranty, maybe something on the repair I guess.
What im kinda hoping is maybe they will replace the tv, which means id get my full price back in credit towards one which would give me a larger newer tv than what i got 3 years ago. At least im getting real value for my warranty.
I just had a scenario where i had a couch replaced under warranty, they replaced my couch with the same exact couch, but let me keep my old one, the old one still was fine to use, and we had no real use for it anywhere else, so just kept the old one, sold the new one lol
If they replace my tv and let me keep the old broken one I will probably look into repairing it myself with a Mainboard replacement, that would be awesome.
So if you go ahead with a mainboard on yours and it works, id be interested in finding out how straight forward it was, and what kinda cost in time and part it was in the end.
