Hi Folks, Well its a week today since Panasonic picked up my faulty AE100, and they have now notiified me to confirm a convergence fault but could not confirm the led of death fault, as it ran fault free(Suprise suprise) for 8 hours on there bench. So i now have to get it refunded from my dealer, once they have been credited back with the money from Panasonic.GOD!! what a lot of agro. Now i am in a bit of a quandry. i have set up my front room for the pannny ie. (short throw projection), i have no panny, i have no money (till they put it back on my card) and I now have serious reservations as to whether i should go and buy another one......I mean I REALLY!!! love the picture on this machine, I just want it to function correctly, is that to much to ask. If i don't go for another Panny then what else will give me such a great picture for the money, and most importantly what else will have a short throw lens so as to fill up my screen over such a short throw. I cant move things around in the front room again, besides theres no other layout i can use. HELP!!! All the best.......Splice. PS. As much as I hate to say it, I guess you will have to take me off your list Tim, all be it for the time being.
