Need to Vent!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So for my birthday my Dad gives me his 60" LCD cause his wife says its too big and she wanted a 46" instead.... WOO HOO!!!! I'm all excited right? Well I get it to my house and mount it and the damn thing is pure SEX!!! Well yesturday I turn it on after a long day at work so I can catch up on some of my shows on DVR......... It no comming on....... hmmmmm I think to my self.....

I call my dad and I'm like WTF MAN???? He said it was acting up and thats the rel reason he pawned it off on me......... Well I call the local TV repair shop and give them the model# and they are like....... Oh we have this issue with this TV all the time and its only $300.00 to fix it.... HELL YEA!! Thats not to bad. But still pissed that my dad would pawn off somethin broken to me. Espessially as aBday present. So I call him up and let him know that is is only $300.00 to fix it and I need his truck so I can take it to the shop and now hes all pissed cause he just went out and spent an arm and a leg on a new Tv when all he had to do was put $300.00 into this one hahaha!!! EPIC FAIL DAD, EPIC FAIL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The funniest part abou tit , hes had it for a little over a year,like maybe 14 months I think, but never did the warranty paperwork so its voided!!!!!!!!!

Heres a pic of it I found at best buy

why do you need to vent? Sounds like dad owes you 300 bucks too lol................ Dude seriousky...... LISTEN TO ME............. Lay in bed one night and think this shit through.... Your Parents/father went through great lengths to trick you and lie to you.... And now he wants to indian give his tv back, don't trust your parents EVER again man. Tell them you love them a nd visit and stuff, but don't ever lend a hand with money or financial stuff. Your parents sound like low trailer trash gutter scum. You wanna help them move a couch that's fine, just promise you won't help pay any bills or shit like that.

that sucks, would piss me off too. We got a 60" LCD in the living room, finally a tv big enough for that room lol. But my dad chose a Scenic or so weird named tv. They only bought it cause I came home one night with a 46" samsung for my room. Its like a competition with them and stuff. I get something nice, they try to one up it haha.

Its a power supply issue from what the repairman said. The Tv turns on but its not providing enough power to turn on the screen. I get the power light and sound though.

They are far from trailer thrash too though hahaha. They make good $$$$$ but he is a little crooked when it comes to his kids hahaha. I got a 42" in my room now though hahahaha.
