Purchased a TV in late June of 2008 for close to 800 dollars. In July of 2009 (actually it was probably June) a line appeared across the screen. I thought it was a connection issue or something and I was busy with an ill family member and I was way too busy and consumed to deal with a TV matter. Finally call Sharp and send pictures. The problem is not fixable. They want me to buy a new TV for 290 dollars. TVs are so marked down at this time. I do not consider this a fair compensation.
I wrote a letter to Sharp and faxed it. I received a phone call from the marketing department the next day. They were very pleasant and offered to compensate me for my troubles - they would send me a new drum and 3 new toner cartridges. I am pleased that they responded so quickly.
