Pop and flash meaning that the picture turns on and off? Many people's tv eventually just turns off all together. Furthermore, if you notice a crackling sound, it isn't just the sound of the tv turning off, it is the sound of sparks and flames emitting from the back of the television. Take notice of this as it is a fire hazzard. If you do notice this, please report the problem to the consumer product safety commision. I beleieve this common problem with large sparks and flames warrants a recall.

When starting computer screen immediately starts flashing colors. Nothing else. Then stops. And glitches randomly.

Turn off your pc and connect another monitor. If the external monitor works fine then the screen cable is damaged or your laptop's LCD needs replacement.

I have a 1999 Oldsmobile allero and I am having trouble with the theft lock, randomly my car will not start and then my security light will start flashing and I have to wait for about 15 min for the light...

You are experiencing GM passlock security system. Yours is starting to fail. When the system gets old it fails to communicate with all the parts of the system that need it. When the communication is broken, the car goes into anti theft mode and and turns off the starter and/or the injectors. After ten minutes it trys to connect the communication again, this is why it will work after a while. Go to this link, it has a ton of info and some ways to bypass this system so it will never happen again.

Flashing black and white vertical lines

Vertical lines in the display indicate a failing screen. New screens are expensive and not worth the labor and parts charges to repair it. It's new monitor time.

Flashing red center light

With most flat panel TVs, the TV turn itself OFF when it has a fail electronic part and the red light starts flashing. They call this "Protection Mode". The flashing red light should be a error trouble code.
But, it's weird that everything is working and the red light is flashing. Since you just recently bought the TV, I would get it check out while it's still under warranty. Better safe, than sorry.

I have a 6 year old Samsung PCJ522R 52" TV.

It sounds like at least one of 3 "IHVT",s popped. in short, a "IHVT" is a high voltage transformer. It will have to be replaced along with any other parts that were damaged in the process.
They do produce a strong odor when they pop!!

It is repairable but at a price. there is a good chance that parts will have to be ordered.

you might consider buying a new LCD HDTV instead of fixing this one.
