Constant blinking usually infers there is trouble in the jungle ic chip. If that is so in your set the replacement of the jungle chip is quite expensive. More than $150. Probably not a wise investment for a 5 year old set.

The "call for service" is another sign the problem is more than minor.

So, without knowing more I think you are going to be better off by taking a trip to Walmart, Best Buy, Circuit City or Ultimate Electronics and start looking over the new stuff.

You know, I don't have any personal experience with Durabrand tvs, but I was in Walmart today and playing with the controls on one of their sets. After I got it optimized (in the store they always set them up with maximum color and brightness) it was the best looking picture in the store - even better than Sony. The one I was looking at was only a 20 inch for $89, but I was duly impressed with it. Walmart has a Durabrand 27 inch set for $168, which is a good price if the picture is as good as the 20 incher that I was playing with!! Just a thought.

Won't turn on, flashing red light


It seems you ballast is going out, i recommend you replaced, don't waste money buying lamps with this issue, get the ballast, they run around 60dll so it's a good deal, go to discountdashmerchantdotcom i've been getting parts from them and they offer great service, it's worth giving them a shot :)
