That sounds like the TV itself. Chances are good the price for repair may not be worth it compared to a new TV. I guess the best course would be getting an estimate and going from there.

Now that your TV is dead though, this lockout will surely end any moment now. We salute your bold sacrifices.

Yeah, that's what I figured. The TV is old and is a Westinghouse, so I have been expecting it to crap out eventually. Wal-Mart has a 32" Vizio LED (the same size as my broken one) for $248 right now, so I may go buy it later today. Not going to find an LED (or LCD, for that matter) cheaper than that.

Luckily it is the bedroom TV so I am still able to watch TV. Otherwise, I would be much more devastated.

Last I heard TV repair runs in the 200 dollar range. Might as well get a new one.

I got a Vizio 32" LCD for $320 2 years ago, and a week later price dropped to $299 at Walmart. My luck.

Anyway you're right that you won't find anything much cheaper. Vizio makes a solid TV and is underrated, I think. Not as good as some others, but solid. Their TVs are usually a few pounds heavier but if you're only moving it once then that's not a big deal, especially with a 32" TV.

If the current track of Hurricane Sandy continues, the northeast wall(strongest part of the storm) will pretty much cover Philadelphia. This storm has the potential to be a serious threat to the region. Going to be a fun couple of days seeing what track Sandy decides to take.

Pretty neat picture of the two systems that are going to collide potentially bring us a historical storm.

Just a thought - I got a 48" open box LED for $400 with 18 months no interest financing from Best Buy about a year ago.

Any of you guys know what the laws regarding a wooden fence in a back yard in Philadelphia is? Our one neighbor who doesn't like us has called animal control and CLIP on us at least 5 times in the past month and the animal control and CLIP people recommended putting up a fence that they won't be able to see over so they can't call for ******** reasons. They even said that they've closed the case since other than the one time there wasn't anything wrong with the yard or the animals

Yeah I'm not looking for a TV that big though. That's a good deal, no doubt, but this is a bedroom TV where space is limited. We have a wall mount that only goes up to like 36" I think so we have a limited size range to choose from.

Lucas killed it with the prequels. The good news is that Disney cannot possibly screw up the new movies worse than Lucas did Episodes 1-3, unless they set out to do so on purpose.

exactly, when you are watching episode 1 and saw Jar-Jar Binks what did you think? I thought it had Disney written all over it.

Disney isn't all kids movies, either:

Crimson Tide, The Scarlet Letter, Judge Dredd (original), The Rock, Con Air, G.I. Jane, Enemy of the State, The 13th Warrior, National Treasure, The Prestige, and Apocalypto are all Disney Group movies.

They've got a pretty diverse portfolio. Hopefully they don't target Star Wars to 5 year olds; they have no excuse if they do. "But we're Disney" ceases to be an excuse when you've got Apocalypto under your belt.

Sounds to me like you're fine apart from a jackass neighbor. I don't know the laws regarding wooden fences in the city apart from them just needing to be built to code. You can have them in the city, even though the vast majority I see are of the chain link variety.

That's what worries me. I'll admittedly have trouble adjusting to new actors filling the 3 main roles, but if the stories are good and it's written and acted well (which the prequels weren't) I think I can get over it enough to separate these films mentally from the original 3 to enjoy them on their own. I'm sure some fanboy could tell me what would possibly happen in these movies and what characters we'd see. I'm guessing possibly Admiral Thrawn and/or Mara Jade and something to do with taking back Coruscant.

Princess Leia gets brainwashed by the emperor and betrays Luke and there are... TWO chewbaccas.

Mass. Lobsterman Finds Halloween Surprise in Trap

Flyers lobster found in Mass.





Quote:
While Halloween will be a bit delayed, understated or both for humans on the East Coast this year, no one told the region's sea life that the holiday won't go on after superstorm Sandy.

Take the Massachusetts fisherman who found a Halloween treat in his lobster trap that proved to be no trick.

The treat was a lobster caught last week by Dana Duhaime that was not the usual color of lobster-red but orange and black, with the two colors perfectly split down the lobster's back.
