I had this a couple of years ago. I assumed that it was the color wheel going out. I am handy with these things so I removed the color wheel and cleaned it very carefully.(it is glass) and then gave one tiny drop of oil in the bearings. Seemed to work for me. Not a job for someone not comfortable with electronics. There are replacement wheels on the internet and are not that hard to replace. Remove the rear lower cover and unscrew 2 screws and 1 connector.  Hope this helps

LG 47LB5900 TV picture blinks on and off. sound ok, does it on all menus, not just content.

T con board is responsible for the final image that appears on set. If there are anomalies or issues with it they can be traced to that board.

The tv has a black screen with the green light flashing like mad, will not turn on?

Evening there
Check the scart plugs and cables. There might be inputs for sound and brightness. Look at the back of the TV to check for input and output.
good luck

My Coby LEDTV 1926 blinks red, green, blue, white, and black. Is there anyway to fix this?

Sorry I can't help, but mine does the same thing sometimes. It'll work fine for awhile, then no picture, but goes crazy and flashes one color at a time across the whole display, very brightly. I have it connected to RCA inputs, so I don't know if it would happen using the antenna input, but based on your experience, I suspect it would. I never got around to calling tech support, and my return period ends in two days, so it's going back to the store tomorrow.

Ln55c650 keeps flashing bright to dim very fast after about 30 minutes of being on if i shut it off for a few minutes it goes away til about 30 minutes the picture never goes away just gets bright and dim...

I had the same issue occur on my ln55c650 (screen flickering, not the actual image but the front lights flashed which was too distracting) and they had to replace the power supply pc-board. Seems some issue with power module in the TV rather than the side panels. Luckily for me, TV was still in warranty.

Insignia NS-LCD26-09 TV Screen Bright

I am wondering if this happens with every source input. Please compare the Video, YUV, and Ant inputs. This will tell you if the issue is related to a specific curcuit.

Acer LCD Monitor AL2671W - screen too bright!

I had the same problem with my TV when I purchased it used. Select the input you are having troubles with and enter "Service Mode" by pressing and holding the "VOL - " button and "CHAN + " buttons on the TV, simultaneously until the screen flashes red one time.

At this point you will be in service mode. Pressing the "MENU" button will open a service menu, which is different from the typical user menu. From the service menu you can further adjust your image settings until you have a decent picture.

Initially my VGA input looked terribly bright and washed out. Now it looks incredible!
