so what would one do if they have a pro-111fd and their aww1353 card has died and all these people who could use an aww-1352 have bought up all of the '53's and now 111fd users can't even get their tv's to turn on because they can't get this card?
- sorry just a little pissed that this card is unavailable, anywhere - this on-top of the fact that some loser at Pioneer thought it a great idea to kill their best product line and scuttle the tech all over the place and pass it off to panasonc and sharp, and scatter the engineers - it's like he had a vendetta - and didn't want anyone to ever rebuild the division. The next CEO should have his head, rebuild the pdp division and get back to it, but i digress...
isn't pioneer required by the state of California to continue to produce vital parts for at least seven years after the date of discontinuation?
this isn't just a trim piece, it is VITAL to the function of the tv.
has anyone tried putting the bountiful aww1352's into a pro-111fd?
i can get boxes of these cards for between 15 and 50 dollars - perhaps i should buy them all up, so people who need to repair their units cannot do so.
again, sorry, i just need to vent.
i worked hard to get this tv and i am very sad that while i have the ability to repair this tv, i cannot simply because the part seems to be unavailable.
i'm poor, i can't even go out and buy a tv at a pawn shop - if anyone has a new aww1353 they can direct me to at a reasonable price, please let me know.
on another note, has anyone ever seen an aww1355? if so, how is it different than the aww1353? What was it used in?
