Even if Sony stops production of TV, they should provide support to customers who have bough their product... Who knows, they might sell their TV division to someone...

Although not a certainty, it is a very strong possibility. PC (VAIO) business already having gone, the TV and mobile businesses could be next. Specifically since they spun off their TV business last year. Makes it much easier to get rid of it.

To buy their products or not would be entirely your personal decision. I personally believe that even if they sell their business, they would be committed to supporting the products they have already sold or at least have the buyer take over.

When you consider the real cost it takes to manufacture the panels and the cost at which Sony prices them, its rather surprising that they dont find it profitable.

It will be around 10-20% of selling price. Rest they spend in Advertisement, research ,patents & warranty.
