I decided to give Panasonic Concierge a call, they said they could have someone out by Tuesday morning, much quicker than I expected.
I Just realized I should probably figure out how that is going to effect my 90 day return policy at Costco. I would just return it if its size wasn't so much of a pain in the butt as far as returning it goes. Especially if all the other TV's my Costco are just going to have the same issue. It sounded like from some posts on the forum that the service is fairly easy so I figured what the hell. The manufacture date on the unit is Jan 2008 btw.
The TV is actually for my bedroom so the 42" might actually be too big. But I'm not about to pay the same price for something smaller like a 37" LCD. It does look nice though. :P
