LG 42 plasma quick blank flash

I have noticed on my 3 month olf LG 42" plasma that it flashes for a split second to a black or blank screen. It happens if I am on either sat receivers, so I am sure it is the tv.

Any ideas

I have a Plasma TV with black screen and 6 red light flashes.

These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.
Blinking codes details to many popular brand TVs are given. Surf the site with patience.

Samsung 42' plasma tv,screen keep flashing, blurry,no pics

I'm not really sure what causes this but I might be able to help.
I have an LG 42 plasma which had the same problem. In my case I removed the video and the tuner board (they both were mounted on the same frame which was screwed on the tv chassis) and installed them in a "wooden box" so that there would be no electrical contact with the rest of the chassis except from the cables connected to them. It now works fine.
