Powersupply issues are rare but are present from all TV makers. A google search result count is no justification to trace the reputation of the most reliable TV producing CE company IMO. Their TV failure rate are exceedingly low and their picture quality far exceeds anything on the market but Pioneer [which cost 3-4 times as much]!
If a Pioneer Elite can die 38 days after its purchase, any TV can. It happens, nothing is perfect. It only takes one component manufacturer to make a simply mistake and the final product will not work. Which reminds me, how is the black... I mean grey level on that Sharp
You should have contacted Panasonic and they would have hooked you up instead of getting a inferior product.
