OK, I feel your pain and frustration as well. Things should just work better than they do sometimes. I recently had a similar issue with a dishwasher after only 5 years - the first one lasted 35 years - what gives.

Anyway, this is a relationship play. I've been in this business for years so here's the best shot and what I would do.

#1 - Write a polite letter expressing your frustration to Jim Sinegal - CEO of Costco. He is a very exemplary man with much interests to his company and customers. He will respond, I guarantee it. Include in this letter how you chose Costco for quality products and this premature failure was outside of your bounds for reasonableness. Ask him, don't tell him, if there is anything Costco can do to help you get this repaired, include the basic value you are looking for or other remedies that may work for you. Also ask Jim to help you make contact with the manufacturers representative for the brand of TV that you purchased. With a referral from someone like Jim, you'll get some attention.

#2 - Write a similar polite letter to the CEO of the manufacturer of the TV you purchased. Explain how this experience has changed your attitudes towards his company to the negative and that some relief in this matter would repair this perception.

In this day of double digit declining sales, retailers and/or manufacturers can't afford to not take notice of reasonable requests for product quality.

This has worked for me in the past, let me know if it works for you.

Hello Mr. John
I don't know to whom you did the payment and went in vein.

I've the original service book to your TV; [Mitsubishi WD52527 HDTV]. But I can't send it to you by this window as it does not allow me to upload any PDF files by it, and the document is in PDF format, have two files, with a total capacity of 7.9MB.

Projection tv doesnt come on

You left so little information my friend, it will be impossible to help you. I did however find Magnavox home page where you can request service on your TV set. You will need to go to the link I leave you and on the right side of the page, click on request service. Then a customer service person should be able to assist you. All I can find from the info you left is that your zip is 28601. The Magnavox site should be able to help you. Good Luck, and I hope you get your set repaired. The link is

Bowed picture on Philips 55pp9352 after replacing IC's

You must have mishandled the ICs they are static sensitive, and unless you used Sanyo ICs then you will have problems. The convergence is obviously not working so the TV will need the digital convergence board repaired or replaced, also the PIP board is suspect I have seen plenty of these tvs and believe me I earned the $ 350 we charged. These sets are very difficult to work on even for a trained tech. the best thing to do is to have a repair shop do it and you will have the assurance that its done correctly, and the work is guaranteed, That makes sense. ( I will not be able to respond to any further inquires)

Green light blinking, tv won't turn on

Had a certified Mitsubishi repairman out on Wednesday. It was indeed the four $1.69 capacitors that needed replacing. The bill was $376.95 which included the service call to my home.

The repairman told me that prior to January '08, this was a $700 fix. Somehow I still wasn't all that excited.

If this problem is this common, the repair should be handled completly by Mitsubishi. I'm still not convinced that just replacing the defective parts assures me of a long-term fix.

I believe I've purchased my LAST Mitsubishi product of any kind. Yes, I'm bitter.
