Question about BenQ DV3080 30 in. LCD Television
I have had this unit (which I paid $2200) for 2 years now. I thought the unit was great and always enjoyed watching movies and HD programs without complaint. Until now. The screen is still beautiful... but always black. I turn on the set and after approx. 1 second the screen goes black with only audio to enjoy. I called BenQ support to no avail other than your warranty is up and you'll have to ship it back for $40, with a $60 estimate charged and an approx. repair charge of $200-$300. Needless to say I was appalled by the response I received and have noticed the same complaints throughout the internet. Unfortunately I have been unable to determine (YET) the cause of the problem. If a TV less than $100 has a 5 yr warranty wouldn't it only make sense that one at $2200 would also be taken a little more seriously on the service-end of things. I guess not... another TV sold for BenQ and nothing but regret and disappointment left for me. Well hey, you can't see that on TV... not on mine anyway!
I have this tv (benq dv3080) and after 4 years it happened to me too. for those who still have it if i fix it i will post it here.
