That should have told anyone they would be trouble .

Didn't wow me at all most names like Westinghouse, RCA, GE, etc are sold to the highest bidder and are rebranded Chinese crap in the hopes of rusing consumers that they are of similar quality associated with the name printed on them.

Dead driver transistors again? FET shorts overloads inverter supply blows fuse. It's funny how similar the failures are to the Benq builds.

Are they using the same crappy design or something?
At least the same crappy caps ....
