If the set is an LCD, yes, it is "Digital" but that only refers to the display. To receive digital off-the-air broadcasts, the set must have a digital or ATSC tuner, otherwise the set has a standard tuner that will no longer work. If the set is "digital ready" a digital satellite/cable/off-the-air converter box must be used, and fed to the set's video input(s).
Did you get fooled? Hard one to answer. It more than likely was the result of the sales person's lack of technical knowledge. "Digital" and "Digital Ready" designations have confused just about everyone since "digital" was first introduced to television.
Hope this clarifies some of the mystery, rhais.

It's the #1 plaguing issue with flat panel TV in all brands. So, don't believe that ILO is the only brand with the problem. 90% of all TVs only have a 1 year warranty. It's always best to get the extended warranty if possible on flat panel TVs now.
Most likely the TV has a power supply related problem. It's possible that it maybe a bad capacitor or transformer on the power supply board. Or, it maybe something simple like a blown fuse inside the TV. The most common thing to go out on flat panel TVs is the circuit board that supply power to the screen. Commonly called a Backlight Inverter Board. But, I can't say it's 100% the problem because I can't actually look at the tv over the internet. I can only make guesses with the symptom.
You have a few choices:
1. You can try leaving the TV unplugged for 30 minutes so the TV can reset itself.
2. If you have some electronic experience, if you can find and purchase a Service Manual over the internet; It will help you diagnose the source of the problem and fix it by soldering in the new part. The Service Manual will give you circuit diagrams, test points, and part# lists.Usually, cost under $20. And most cases the new part cost less than $15.
3. Pay a TV shop to do the repairs. It maybe costly, but get an estimate of how much they will charge. That way you can decide if it worth repairing or replacing the whole TV.
I hope I shed some light on the subject for you.
