The tech showed up today and said that it needs a new panel. He said that it was "out of stock" when he called to check on it. I should hear from Geek Squad soon on what they want to do. Afterwards I did some calling and Pioneer told me that they actually have panels available for the 5020fd! The cost is $2500. I called an authorized Pioneer Service Center and the gentleman said it would be about $300 for the labor and I would have to pay for the freight of the panel, which would be around $400, plus tax on the services. In the end we're probably looking at $3300 all in to fix the tv. That said, I'm assuming they will try and replace my tv with a new one. Given the cost to repair it and its picture quality the 60 ZT is $3500 msrp at best buy, so at their cost they could give me the picture equivalent cheaper than trying to fix it. That is my first choice, but would probably take a VT60 if I had to. Do you think my asking price is fair given the circumstances?
