Thanks for all the replies! Ill try the menu 123 tonight when I get home. Is that the same as hitting the reset on the actual TV itself? (Which i tried).
Good point on unplugging the unit. Though it shouldn't make a difference, Ill unplug it from the wall tonight and take a look.
Also, just to make it clear, the picture is full. Its not missing on the sides. I can see through the reflection with the wavy lines, but its slightly darker. The other thing is that its real sensitive to getting really dark on the sides. I know many projections are like this. For example, if I move about 3 ft off to the side of the set and sit about 7 foot away, its almost completely dark. Unwatchable. Not sure if this is normal or not. The best I can get is if Im directly in front of it at about 12 feet or so but then the wavy lines are on both sides.
I thought about it over and over and just cant come up with a scenario where the seller himself would put an incorrect sticker on the TV. If it came correct from the manufacturer, then why change it?
It appears to be a professional label, perfectly affixed. You would never think something is wrong. Its labeled this model # on two different spots on the rear of the set. If I recall, one is a larger label with more info and then, again, if I remember correctly, there is another label towards the bottom which is white and has the same model # with the serial #.
Unless there are counterfeit TVs? That would be a first for me.
Haven t heard from the seller today. Will give it some more time.
