I was wondering since the TV had power on it when it was whacked if any of the boards could have been damaged (as I am getting the 7 blinks), or is that just an indication that one of the boards is complaining about the cracked screen.
I am quite good with electronics and stuff like this, getting the bits out is no issue. God it pains me though.
I picked it up a little over a year ago for 1350 and now my replacements are looking like a 60ST50 at 1800 or a 60GT50 at 1850.
Still hurts twofold - one, having to buy again and two, the new unit being about 500 more than the original.
As for the uncoordinated bovine, that is a sore spot and I'd prefer to leave that for another day.
