for anyone who read my thread on possible screen burn on my sanyo plv-30, just to let you know that so far nobody has ever heard of this problem, i have spoke to sanyo and they were baffled by it. I showed it to my local dealer who was also perplexed, they surggested i send it away but it would cost around £100 just to look at it! anyway i din't want to take the risk of wasting £100 and then being told it would cost £300+ to fix so i got me a new sony VPL-HS50, it is amazing, best lcd pj i have ever seen for less than £2000 and probably better than some pj costing 3 or 4 times that! so its turned out alright in the end, only i think the wife's packing her bags has i type this...... thanks for the help. what would we do without the internet???????
