    Curtis brand - RT 700 - 7" LCD TV

    My brother bought one for himself - one for me - for Christmas. He had his
    on the other night - and it got very hot. The case melted in back - before
    shutting off. Mine runs hot too. His was laying in his bed on a pillow as he
    laid there watching. It is a wonder it didn't catch fire.

    I'm not going to try to repair either, as they would still be under
    warranty. I DOUBT the store will take them back, so we'll write to the
    company for further remedy.

    This set sold at Best Buy for $149. They look nice and are cool - til they
    start screwing up. NOT WORTH IT.

    Just wanted to put you all on alert - if you've seen them and considered

    If someone makes a similar set - better in quality, I'd like to know

    Your suggestions?

    1. Were cooling vents blocked by chance?

    2. Yes, very lucky there wasn't a fire...

    3. Probalby crappy design...

    4. I don't think you'll get much satisfaction from 'Curtis', but good
    luck--and let us know what they say.

    I don't believe the vents were "blocked" completely - but then again, if you
    set it down flat on any surface, even on a shelf, the same thing would have
    happened. IF they knew it would get that hot, they should have made the base
    a bit higher and add some vents. Why would they make it to sit flat if that
    is going to happen? They shot themselves in the foot if that is the case. I
    don't think that set should have malfunctioned so quick regardless. I think
    you're probably right about the company. We shall see.
  4. Go to Best Buy and ask to speak to the manager (take the melted piece of
    garbage with you).
