    LCD Flat Panel Displays
    I have a second hand Toshiba 50L7300A which, when plugged in, turns on and displays the Red Toshiba logo, but then displays a bright blue screen. I understand this may be a problem with the main board (32L4300 rev 1.02a) but I'm not sure, and they're very difficult to find now anyway. I tried...

    Display Calibration
    I picked on up off the street and it's perfect except for it being stretched horizontally on the sides. I know this is because it's not compensating for being a flat-screen (it's compensating vertically, though). I know I have to open it up to fix it, but what should I do inside?

    LCD Flat Panel Displays
    Has anyone seen this set or read any reviews? It's apparently a Best Buy exclusive. At $549, I'm tempted, but with a 60 Hz refresh rate and no reviews anywhere, I'm quite hesitant... Also considering the Vizio E55-C1/C2, which is available for about the same price and has a 120 Hz refresh (or...

    LCD Flat Panel Displays
    I have been a Toshiba fan for some time. Even though I did have problems with the Regza LCD sets from 2006 (bad panels which affected several manufactures). But I have always felt that Toshiba offered very good products and in the most competitive price points. And very good technology. I still...
