Bit of a different one here. Used this TV as my main set for over 3 years, when one day out of the blue it developed a thick line of what I would assume to be dead pixels that ran vertically all the way from the top to the bottom of the panel, on the right hand side. This of course happened literally a month after my extended warranty ran out. I understand this is a common problem with this particular model. Since I wanted a bigger TV anyway and didn't want to go through the hassle / cost of finding out if this was repairable, I purchased a 55" on special and this one has been sitting in its original packaging ever since.
Besides the line of pixels it worked flawlessly when it was boxed up. I'm advertising it in the hopes someone with a little more knowledge in the field might want to pick it up either to have it repaired and get a bargain 51" Plasma or use it for parts, and so I can get rid of the giant box sitting in my dining room and perhaps make a small amount back.
I'm flexible on the price within reason. Have included a pic of the box serial # - no pics of the actual unit as it is heavy AF and some back-related weight lifting injuries from my earlier days preclude me from lifting anything heavy. You are welcome to come view / buy it however, but please bring some help if needed.
