Do you have a picture of the problem? Also, i would get ahold of Sony Customer care and explain the situation and see if they might throw you a bone and extend your warranty and pay for everything. If they won't do that ask if they would at least pay for the part. Good luck and let me know what they say. Just be nice and see how they respond. Squeeky wheel gets the oil. Smiles. Have a good weekend. Jay

I have a LG Plasma Flat screen TV. I purchased it


With seeing the picture it will be hard fro me to tell what..I am going to guess according to the information you've provided.
It could a buffer or a signal board(s). This TV is only 4 Months old I would call LG and file a warranty claim. LG (800) 243-0000

Best of luck

Just out of warranty Dell TV W3706MC,two years old


Sounds like a bad video board. No easy way to fix a bad video board. It needs to be replaced. That is why the repair shops will not fix it; they do not stock video boards for all models. And it is a pain to track one down all of a sudden. Once a warranty is up, you are running on bonus time. Electrical components have a definite lifespan. It is possible to recover some money by selling it "as-is" online somewhere. You could get 200-400 for it broken, pretty easy I suppose.

Black out screen


I had the same problem once with my RCA television. It only happened on certain channels and didn't happen during commercial breaks. If I adjusted the volume on the tv the box went away, but came back shortly after. The problem ended up being some malfunction in the closed captioning. I turned it all off and changed the CC settings and never had the problem again.
