Summary: Great picture for 2 years, but then the right half of screen went dark. shortly after then the other half of screen went white with noise or static lines. Was told by Sanyo that it was the board and would cost upwards of $600.00 to replace. Since it was out of warranty they would do nothing to help me. This is a very common fault. Search it out. STAY AWAY..
Summary: Bought a Sanyo 47 inch LCD TV from Walmart less than 1 year ago & it kept turning off randomly for no reason. We just dealt with it for awhile, but tonight my husband & I read TONS of reviews about other Sanyo TV's doing the same thing, & worse - turning off & staying off & not working at all! I saw this & read it to my husband who said, "At least we don't have that problem." Minutes later, we did. Our TV just turned off & won't go on anymore.
Summary: I purchased this model television in July 2009. Beginning in June 2011, lines appear across the screen and sometimes half the screen goes black. I was told it needs a new LCD panel, which Sanyo will not cover. The new LCD panel costs $1000.00. Search the internet...this is a common problem with Sanyo televisions.
