Thanks for the reply.
Sounds like its gonna cost 1K to get it fixed, so he has had enough. As for size I agree but he says smaller will be better for them now.
Guess he wants to spend what it would cost to replace. Would he be happy with he st30 series considering it is the same panel as the gt30?
I told him thAt here are sweet deals right now. I think he is bummed he only got a little over 4 years on the Sony, but it wasn't the first issue.
Just looking for guidance. Thanks.
