First off, just wanted to say thanks for the great post. I was recently offered a 57732 for free, but turned it down because of the halo problem. My girlfriend then decided to take in the TV and despite trying to dodge the responsibility, I'm stuck with fixing it. I'll be doing the cleaning this weekend and I'll be sure to take pictures of each step and then post them here when I'm done.
The TV she received is impossible to see looking at it from any direction other than head on. Is this due to the bulb dying? I had her order a replacement, as I figured the TV probably needs a new one at this point anyway. Are there any other restorative procedures I should be doing since I'm going to be sinking my entire Saturday into this anyway?
Thanks in advance!
