Question about Televison & Video
It always ran hot, way hotter than any other I've felt. Then one day, I was watching it, 5 months after buying it, and then the screen at first went blue for a few seconds, then black (as if it were off). The little blue "ON" light was still on but nothing. I shut it off immediately and looked at it and saw a little crack about 1/4 inch long on the tube behind the protective clear screen which spread like a spider's web, for lack of a better term, as it cooled down. What happened? Please, it took me a year and a half to save up for it, then this ****. Very disappointed to say the least.
Plug the TV to an open channel on your receiver via this output:
*Rear, 1 x Digital audio output (coaxial) ( TOSLINK )
This will look like a single RCA output plug.
Set that input channel on your receiver to some sort of virtual surround mode because it doesn't look like your HDTV has a decoder in it (meaning it will come out stereo and the receiver will have to fake it).
Turn the volume all the way down on the TV and use the receiver to control TV volume just as you do with DVDs.
*Substitute this with the digital audio output on your set top box if you are sending video only to the TV from the set top box (component, DVI or s-video connections). So video goes to the TV, audio to the receiver.

Most of the times this type of damage is due to panel overheating. This can occur due to many situations but most offten is due to internal mulfunction of some of the high power/voltage driving circuits. You can only hope that the dealer will replace the set under warranty. Do not settle with a repair.
