I know that MJ for the 55" VT30 indicates the fix is in place but not sure for the 65". Are you sure this display has the problem?

Robert

MJ does not mean the fix is in place. It is a factory ID. There are April MJs, November MJs and every month inbetween.

So then maybe it doesn't have a problem until he checks the service menu.

The person would have to check the SM to verify the LSI version on display's assembled before August. I thought BB had their entire stock flashed with the update????

Ack! My VT30 just scared the crap out of me. Checked the hours as normal, then it wouldn't power up. 14 flashes, a chart online shows that as the A-board. I unplugged everything and let it sit for a few and it turned on normally. November build.

Yikes!

Doesn't sound good. I would watch out for that panel as it may fail.

More bragging???!!!! Really? That's the point you're going for now, really? If that's what makes you feel better to bring the point on a Kuro that isn't made any longer to money you paid for them than very funny indeed.

he stated MJ1213... which means prefix, the 1213 indicates that, however it prolly already has the fix,as it is from BB.

Kuros are still being sold and used panels have more value and selling for more than your 55VT30. There are even a few NIB Kuros... although they are being sold for absolutely ridiculous prices.


Yeah the Kuro was such the ultimate display that they had to stop making them...they realized the general public wasn't worthy or their black levels.

I made the decision to cancel based off of what I read at this link: http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showp...postcount=3775.

I am patient. I can wait few weeks and order again. One of two things will happen, the price will get cheaper, or Panasonic will make such a huge announcement at CES that I will wait for the new model.

Your display will no longer be in production in a matter of days. Welcome to the "no longer in production" club. LMFAO.

Ahhh, backup has arrived.

I suggest you review Pioneer's financial history before you make such claims. They had zero problem selling the Kuros and actually profited from their sales.

Another D-nice fan boy, what a surprise.

I'm not the one trying to brag about the money spent. Good grief, give me a break.

Speaking of backup...Is your son Mark around or did you have to send him to bed early for wetting on your Kuro?

Ordering later doesn't guarantee a later build date. The patch is easy to get, so no need to cancel orders over it. In fact, there have been some members who reported their sets with 1213 serial numbers were already patched.

I bragged about money spent? How about I posted how I, and others, paid less for Kuros. You are the one who consistantly claims the Kuros were expensive. When someone puts you in your place, all of a sudden they are bragging??? Come on. I expect a better argument out of you.

If you do decide to go with powerbridge, they used to give AVS Forum members a discount back in the day.

pretty nifty. ordered from Amazon, cheaper than any other store. Thanks MVP.
