What's wrong with this picture?

There is no friggin' TV on that cupboard!!!

It started a few days ago, when a band appeared on the top of the screen.  It was about 1/3 of the screen and kind of ghosted the picture that was on the screen.

The band was in constant flickering movement which was annoying, though I'll watch pretty much anything, so we put up with it.  We sat there for a couple of days hoping it would go away, but these things never do!

Today, Walt finally bit the bullet and called Costco, where we bought it in 2010.  September of 2010, which meant that our 2-year warranty would not be up until next month.  Good timing!  Much better than going out next month, which is usually the way things work.

He was on the phone for about 20 minutes with a very nice man who had him do all sorts of things to see if they could fix the problem, but nothing did work, so he OK'd a trip to a repair shop -- in North Highlands, which is more than half an hour's drive from here. 

They are checking it out today and deciding if it can be fixed, and if it can't, they have to confer with Costco to see if they will replace it.  But in the meantime, there sits this hole in the family room. 

It's not like we have no television.  I have my little TV here in my office, and Walt has one upstairs in the bedroom, but neither are comfortable for relaxing and watching TV (to say nothing of putting me to sleep). 

I have a horrible feeling that since today is Thursday that it will be Monday before we know anything.  Fortunately we have a busy weekend.

And yes, I do realize that this sounds like an addict wondering when she's going to get her next fix.

Love this photo, which I retouched slightly using some of the techniques I learned in PhotoShop yesterday.
