Hitachi LCD tv - Picture flickers & disappears , sound OK,

Have a hitachi LCD tv - Model 37LD8600. Turn it on, may get a stable picture (for a few secs) and sound. Usually picture flickers and then disappears, sound stays OK. Change channels and picture flickers and goes again. Leave it on for a while and it sometimes comes back for a few secs ... Any ideas ? Thanks , Worth repairing ??? ( could it be capacitor somewhere ? Power supply fault? LCD image unit faulty ? ) Ive no idea so some guidance would be appreciated. THANKS

SOURCE: Hitachi Rear Projection LCD TV Lamp

Projection TV makers charge an arm and a leg for their replacement lamps. They make it easy to do but as a result the custom lamp assy is expensive. The trick is to just buy the bulb for your model TV from any number of us aftermarket sources at a fraction of the lamp price and install it in the old lamp yourself. really easy. Some models are real bulb hogs though. Look them up on the net (include the word complaint or repair) before you buy, or you might be sorry. Many class action lawsuits out there - even against some of the name brand makers.

Blank screen beko lcd 26" lcd tv - sound ok (model no. L5A)

While you have sound, take a flashlight and shine it on the screen, look very close and see if you can see a dark video image.
Let me know what you see.
