    I just purchased this tv and have the following problems (I'm also
    thinking about taking this scumbag on-line retailer to court for
    selling me this defected product):

    1. When the tv is first turned on, no picture or sound for 3-5 minutes
    2. Then, sound comes on and picture starts to flash (on and off) on the
    screen
    3. Picture finally stable a little after another 3 minutes but still
    goes black randomly for a very brief moment

    What could be the problem? I'd appreciate it if anyone here could help.
    Thanks.

    If this is a new set, you should have a warranty. If not, it would have to
    be properly serviced. The fault can be in the power supply, because of the
    fact that both the picture and sound are effected. Also, if the display is
    flickering, the backplane lamp, and or the power supply for the lamp may
    also be defective.

    These units are serviced at the modular level by the manufacture. If you can
    determine the exact modules to replace, you may get it running if no factory
    level adjustments are needed. It is best to have the proper facilities to
    service these sets, so that there is no guess work, and it can be properly
    adjusted if necessary.

    I always advise my friends to not buy any of these sets used. From my
    experience and from what I have seen, most of this level of electronic
    equipment is sold as used, because someone had a problem with it, or for
    some reason they were not happy with it. These sets are very expensive to
    service. They are also not as reliable as the older CRT type sets, therefore
    a service contract is a wise decision.

    The above is my personal view, from my own experience from working in the
    service business.

    Jerry,

    Thanks for your accessment. One thing I didn't really make it
    clear was that when the picture flickers (goes completely black)
    randomly, the power seems to be OK (the green light at the bottom is
    always on). Could it be possible that the AVC unit is at fault but not
    the tv?

    Anyways, to whoever is reading this post and thinking about buying
    an LCD tv online, remember, DO NOT buy from DigitalGear!
