Well, so far this isn't going all that well!
Called Mitsi yesterday, but it was too late for them to find a servicer. So called them today and talked to 2 different reps. The second one found a servicer that would do the work, but only in shop IF I would haul it to them. The trunk of my Buick isn't that darned big!
I told them that was unsatisfactory, so they are still looking for someone to do the work. I tried to get them to give the job the the local TV repairman that has done warranty service work for mitsi in the past, but he isn't an authorized servicer so they nixed that.
But in the back of my mind, I think what will end up happening is that they will give him the work either directly or by using some national svc organization that will sub it to him. Unfortunately this all just drags it out longer than I care to.
Looks like I'll be watching on much smaller screens for a bit longer...
