My TV is toast. Not the crappy little TV in the bedroom or in my office. Not even the tiny little TV/VCR combo in the fort. The big TV in the living room. I haven't been able to turn it on for over a day now. A search of Sony's support website and online forums and the only suggestion was to unplug it for a while and try again. Nothing. Because of the blinking light, I read that it is something major, power supply or something like that. I guess it's past it's expected life span anyhow.
Hubby and I almost bought a new flatscreen TV last year. Now I wish we would have.
It's not really the buying and installing a new one that worries me, it's getting rid of the old one. Hubby is the only one I know strong enough to remove that stinkin TV from the cabinet. He's not a big guy, average height, but has superhuman strength and amazing coordination. When we moved from our apartment to this house, he carried the refrigerator, a full-size refrigerator, down the stairs and into the truck by himself. This TV fits so snugly in the cabinet that it's almost impossible to get a grip on it. I'l need to ask a few of my friend's husbands to come over to help. Maybe if I provide food and beer?
Hubby's due for R&R in 6 months, so I thought maybe I'll wait. No, I don't want to waste precious R&R time messing with a TV.
So tomorrow I go shopping, for a new TV and a credenza on which to place it.
