well, maybe i just don t know where to look, or maybe i am 
slow, but we service most factory warranty sets.
and i seldom get a tip, even from the factory tech that helps 
me fix one easy.
maybe i just am having a bad 6 months, but 90% of my repairs 
have been dogs, no easy, seen before problems.
i hope i get through this learning phase on these new hdtv's
lol
