PME-42S6WT-scrambled picture I have had this PME-42S6WT working just fine for over 4years and all of a sudden the picture went scrabbled, like the verticle and horizontal hold are out of wack. Sound remains, nothing but a scrambled picture.

I think this TV had a quality issue. I had the same problem [sounds the same anyway]. It was an assembly issue. the circuit boardPME-42S6WT-scrambled picture - 2_bing.gif in the middle twards the bottom was wedged in but not flat. the bend eventually caused the same type symptons. I removed the board, applied presure over a couple days, heated the board with hair dryer2_bing.gif and finally got the board to flatten somewhat. Also had to file one edge of the board to get it to set flat in its slot. Has worked since [over 3 years]. I do not recommend doing this unless you are prepared to throw it out, since this is very unorthodxed.
