This is my first post of many
and I want to thank everyone for all the info input !
Here's my story ... Order the 537H from J&R on Friday, the 24th 7pm, as the website stated that item was " In Stock". I received an order confirmation email the same day.
Then Sunday Nov 26, 1:am, I received the "Back ordered" email / apology.
( I'm thinking, "Oh crap, Hope I get it before X-mas !)
Today, Wednesday 5pm, I receive a " Item Shipped " email .. "Whoa !! Ok !!"
I checked the tracking number at UPS and the Olevia was actually shipped 11pm, yesterday, Nov. 28th ... Soooo ! There might be a glimmer of hope for people who are "back ordered" OR ... I should be thanking someone who canceled their order so I could get MY TV earlier than later. YAY !
The 537H is scheduled to be delivered tomorrow and I want to open the box and check for any unapparent damage, before signing off with UPS.
So I'm wondering, If I open up the box , pull the TV out and plug in the power cord only, will I be able to see that the panel is ok without supplying a signal ?? Is there a colored background without a signal ? I 'm just concerned that there might be the "smashed windshield effect " damage that one poster suffered. :-( Has anyone else found damage out of the box ?
Thanks in Advance ! & Good Signal Strength To All !
