A scary thing happened this morning. First, I'll say that I love my new 60". It's as close to perfect as I can imagine. The only thing that bugs me is the off-angle wash-out, but I know that is the nature of the beast, and I was prepared for that. Well I turned it on this morning, and I had picture, but no sound. My volume indicater was displayed, so I turned it up and down, but still no sound. Muting was off. So, I hit the menu button to see if speakers were turned off in the menu. Nothing! In fact, I couldn't get any of the remote buttons to work. So, I turned off my DirecTV box, and when I turned it back on, there was no picture, only the volume indicator on the screen. Still, no remote functions. Next, I tried the button on the rear of the set. Nothing! I couln't even turn off the TV. So, I un-plugged it, waited a minute or so, and then plugged it back in, hit the "on" button on the remote, and everything returned back to normal. I have 90 days to return it to Costco, so I'll be watching carefully over the next few weeks. Didi I say I love this TV?
