I spoke with Toshiba today, and they are going to pick up the set and send me a refund check, to arrive in 5-6 weeks. I must say, Toshiba customer service was very helpful and responsive regarding the problems with my TV.
BTW, I briefly looked at plasmas today, including Panasonic, LG, HP, Samsung, and Toshiba. I have to say, I saw various drawbacks to all of them. Some exhibit too much clay face. Some seem too gritty. The Panny was pixelating just like my Toshiba, giving me pause about getting a Panny. Ideally, I'd like to get into a 50" plasma. This TV will go on the wall in the bedroom.
The new 46" Sony LCD looks pretty darn good. Any suggestions for a replacement? I need to be able to get it for around $2700 or less.
