I was wondering if anyone has had a similar experience to me? I bought a large TV, Sony 36FS70, in May 2000 for £2.5K and purchased an extended warranty via the supplier. I must say that it was the best TV I've ever owned, however.. the company backing the warranty folded, the TV kept going however til Oct 2003, then it displayed error codes. The TV company I called in took it away and thought they'd found the fault however it wasn't to be. Now 5 months later even Sony don't look as though they can solve the problem. My point is, are large 36 inch CRTs just too complicated these days, people worry about the lifespan of Plamas etc but I wasn't expecting this hassle of a conventional CRT. I was expecting to have my TV for many years and not find myself potentially £2.5K out of pocket.
