A few weeks ago, a solid verticle green line appeared about 1\/8 from the left of the screen. I persevered with it for about a couple of weeks, and then, without warning, it disappeared. Then, as mysteriously as it disappeared,, it returned. Does anybody know of a similar issue? I contacted Epsom corporate [in the Philipines?!], and they directed me to the local 'authorized' service centre. It turns out that it is the only centre within a zillion kms.! He looked at\/through it for a day +, and he said thtat it has a problem with one of the circuit boards and would cost a prohibatively $$$$ to have it repaired. He said that Epsom will offer an exchange unit for ~40% off the MSRP, which translates to ~$1200 -1300 Cdn. plus shipping etc. Not such a good deal in my book!
