    I have a 6 year old 65 inch Mitsubishi "old style" 1080 HDTV. It developed a blue line-like a wave thru it about 2 weeks ago and has not gone away-not gotten worse. I am wondering what has gone wrong-and how much it would likely cost for a repair. I am considering buying a new TV if the repair cost ends up being to great.
    Thanks for your help

    Would need to be seen to hazard a guess at whats causing the problem,but would think it may well cost quite a bit to repair,and as you have had 6 years from it, I would think a new one would be the best option as televisions have improved no end in the last 6 years ..you need a profesional opinion from an engineer really, to sway your decision......

    Actually I had a similar situation with a Zenith TV (about 5 yrs old). It turned out to be the color convergence modulator - and we had to have it replaced by a TV technician - cost us about $300.00.

    Thank you so much for your reply
    I suspect that if the price is only $300-I will get it fixed.
