    you think more than a $100?

    not overly attached to the TV, just hate to basically throw 700 bucks away that I spent only 2 years ago

    I doubt it's an expensive fix. Not worth throwing a whole set away over, me thinks. But, I'm no expert with these new fangled contraptions.

    Seriously, get one of the Panasonic plasmas before they're all gone. They're the best and, for some reason, they're going to stop making them. Ask DbD.

    Yeah, yer fucked. The burn always shows on white.

    Go with a SHARP, usually one of the best pictures out there.

    Save this TV for video games or what ever the hell you burned it doing. Don't pause stuff and go take a shit. If you do, leave the cable box on and turn off your TV.

    it is all in the middle in one spot, only place burn in occurs... you could really see the burnin last night when I watched the great gatsby during a really vivid scene, sad because it really was a beautiful tv
