Buy a first class airline ticket to get it there? $1100.00 shipping?? Are you in the United States? $1100 + repairs?? Put it on e-bay for parts.
My Sony PFM50C1 plasma display has a 1-inch wide vertical black line that runs from the top of the screen to the middle, about 8-inches from the right edge of the display. The authorized Sony technician who came to look at it referred me to the manufacturer's repair
facility in San Diego. Since the warranty has expired, it will cost me $1100 for round trip shipping to the Sony facility plus whatever the repair costs might be. Do I have any good options besides junking the unit?
