When it rains.......

 Saturday, we rented some movies, popped some popcorn and set up to enjoy the evening. About halfway through the first movie, the screen on our tv went black! We could still hear it, but there was no picture! It's a 56 inch projection tv that we bought about 5 years ago. The repair man said that it would probably cost more to fix it than to buy a new one! Boo! We ended up having to go and get a new one! Damn it!

 Projection TV's have bulbs. I am sure the bulb just went and that is only a few hundred bucks I think.

 Ok. We have 2 projection TV's. You said you already got a new one? Keep the old one. My SO said it is one of 2 things and both are only a couple hundred bucks fix. Seriously. What did he say was wrong?

 Nothing yet. I called the shop and they want 200.00 just to come out and look at it! Then he said there was no guarantee they would be able to fix it. My dh already changed the lamp in it, but it did no good. If your SO has an idea on what else it could be, let me know! We still have it, my dh would like to get it fixed too..
