Cool! Once rescued a Sharp TV that was "locked up". Reflashed the firmware and it was good as new (unfortunately, "new" was synonomous with "buggy piece of shit!")

I got a DSO (TDS754D) cuz the metrology lab failed to properly seat the "connector PCB" (think of it as a passive backplane). Open cover, reseat board, close cover -- done!
