not sure if its going to have to be replaced but we will see. It started having a really crappy display. Very pixelated and almost like it was displaying a 1/3 the resolution it should have been. So I figured it was the Cable. Through in a DVD, sure enough it was there too. While messing with the settings on the TV the whole thing got a really red tone to it. Now anything that should be displayed as black is this ugly red. And all colors hav ea slight red tone to them. Philips says one of their repair shops will have to look at it, they gave me a number to a local one but its a fax number so I have to call back and get a good number for the place.
