so, i seem to have posted about this tv back in 2005, when I first got it.
4 years later, and i's finally dying. I -think- it's the analog side of things, but can't be sure, since I'm getting a decent signal from the old VGA cable.
Lamp life is at 6666h
component in's have started to 'flicker' and jitter, and lose sync once in a while, especially when the TV thinks it's not getting a full signal (such as during scene changes/fade-to-blacks coming from the HD-DVR cable box, or my Xbox360)
We've also heard what might've been the fan dying (grinding sound, reminiscent of a PC fan getting stuck)
colors are all there, so I think the colorwheel is still intact.
We got the 'all 3 words on' going yesterday. After a while, the tv decided it'd let us watch the redbox rental, and stayed on for another 6 hours.
AV1 (composite) is also fine, no jitters or anything. (well, other than the image looks horrible comparatively... composite and 480i looks quite depressing on this tv)
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
