Looking to purchase used VT60 - what to check for?

I know to check for pink on a white background and dead pixels. The VT60 I'm looking at currently is listed as having 1 non-functional HDMI port. What else should I look for?

You are gambling on that particular VT60. The A main board is rare for this model and expensive. Is it a 65? If you can get it really cheap might be worth the gamble. Check the hrs. Help-status-version. If says 9999 then you will have to enter the SM.

I'm also looking for a used VT60. A seller has 3 55" VT60 with less than 100 hrs of used. So the sets haven't been broken in yet and they are now about 4 years old. Should this be a concern?
