I have a Hitachi 24" widescreen that has been switching itsef off for some time as well as the scart connections being very flimsy,resulting in having to tweak them to at least get a picture from my DVD of VCR. Now it seems to have died as the power standby light doesnt even come on at all.I also detected a slight burning smell comming from the back of the set. I am no rocket scientist but I would expect it to have lasted more than 3 years 9 months.I will NEVER buy Hitachi again,a total waste of money.It will cost me a fortune to get it fixed so I will have to bin it and get another more reliable one which is where you people could help. As a plasma screen is way out of my price range,I would just like some advice where I can get a better quality (picture and build) widescreen for a very good price.It is very annoying to have to fork out again after such a short time. Thanks.
