When I woke up and turned the TV on today, all the pixels were random colors. I could not see the screen. I could press the power button on my remote, and the power light on the TV would go out, without the TV turning off. Even the power button on top of the tv would not usually work. I did manage to get it to turn off and on a few times, but the buttons would not usually work. Finally, I yanked the power cord from the back of the tv and plugged it back in, and everything was fine.

If this thing doesn’t last 35,000 hours like my CRT, I’m going to have to stand behind all my original statements about HDTVs vs CRTs, and the inferiority of HDTVs. If only it didn’t look so damn good.
