FLASHING RED LIGHT
Constant blinking usually infers there is trouble in the jungle ic
chip. If that is so in your set the replacement of the jungle chip is
quite expensive. More than $150. Probably not a wise investment for a
5 year old set.
The "call for service" is another sign the problem is more than minor.
So, without knowing more I think you are going to be better off by
taking a trip to Walmart, Best Buy, Circuit City or Ultimate
Electronics and start looking over the new stuff.
You know, I don't have any personal experience with Durabrand tvs, but
I was in Walmart today and playing with the controls on one of their
sets. After I got it optimized (in the store they always set them up
with maximum color and brightness) it was the best looking picture in
the store - even better than Sony. The one I was looking at was only a
20 inch for $89, but I was duly impressed with it. Walmart has a
Durabrand 27 inch set for $168, which is a good price if the picture is
as good as the 20 incher that I was playing with!! Just a thought.
