Sony 3D display problems
I got one of the Sony 24" 3D displays to hook up to my PS3. Had it about 3 months or so. It's worked fine until today. Now when I try and turn it on, the blue light at the bottom turns on, then switches to a small green light, then a small red light flashes (never a good sign!) and then nothing. Checked on the Sony message-boards and it appears tons of people are having this problem. I don't have the receipt needed for a replacement as it was a gift from my brother who has long since lost it. He paid $149 for it, but the paid repair option is $169... more than a brand new one! That's crazy! Other than that, Sony was no help. Without the receipt, there is no repair which is crazy. Do they think it's a counterfeit or something??
My only chance is Best Buy (where my brother purchased it) has a record of the serial number when it was purchased (he paid cash so no credit card help). If so, I can get it reprinted.
Shame on Sony for sending out units where virtually every one has this same issue! Of course I guess the red ring of death was Microsoft's entrance in this club as well. Does anybody make quality stuff anymore?
