Vivitek Corp. Complaint - Repair - 42' dlp tv

Review by sonny one on 2007-01-08
TARZANA, CALIFORNIA -- I purchased a tv through Shop NBC in February of 2006. When the tv went bad and I tried to return it Shop NBC told me they have a strict 30 return policy. This was approximatly 6 months after the purchase.
I followed their istructions on how to get repaiars through the maker. After about 7 weeks of phone tag with them the problem was diagnosed. I was given a number and told to call it once the parts they were sending arrived. I received the parts on December 7,2006 I made my first call on December 8,2006. Since then I have made numerous calls to the number provided by Vivitek and never received a return call. The service company goes by the initials IAI (Integrated automated something). During the last week of December '06 and first week of January '07 I called Vivetek again to see if there was something they could do to help me get the reapirs they have authorised. I have not received a call back from them either.
Next month I will have had this tv for 1 year and i've only been able to watch it for 6 months.
It appears my only course of action is to have it repaired out of pocket and take them to court to recover repair costs.

I have the same problem with my Vivitech TV. The bulb is very expensive and it keeps blowing out.
