    Sorry for the late reply , It was the lcd screen at fault , I purchased an original one from ebay £22 and was an easy installation , Fixed , case closed

    i am currently experiencing the same problem. would the replacement of the lcd address the problem? is the ribbon independent from the lcd screen?

It's probably a faulty contact strip for the LCD display. There is a ribbon cable with VERY fine tracks on it that clamps into a connector on the main board. If this has shifted, you will get the problems you describe. It can be unclamped, but often breaks the lugs.
If you wish it to be repaired it is possible, but may be a 50-50 for a positive outcome.

If it is still under contract or warranty, then go through the providers, otherwise you haven't anything to loose by having a go.
Buy a decent set of jewlers screwdirivers, and prise up the edge of the clamp. It's like a hinge with catches at the end. Remove and replace the ribbon sheet(cable) and click back into place.

This may solve the problem, or cause more of a problem. as I said - 50 - 50% success rate.

The menu keeps flashing on and off. I have turn the tv off 4 or 5 times but it still keeps flashing the light on the bottom of tv goes blue then red really fast

How old is your TV? This normally indicates a power problem. It could be any of the following: power supply on the TV, faulty power strip, faulty wall outlet, faulty circuit board inside the TV, faulty power cord/plug, bad airflow/clogged vents restricting air movement into the TV (can cause intermittent power faults),bad sensor inside TV. This is not completely inclusive by any means. It does mean that you should have it looked at. Someone knowledgeable/skilled should be able to determine the cause fairly quickly using a multimeter.

The back light is the whole of the screen, the screen is illuminated by a CCFL lamp (fluro tube) on the bottom of the screen. A inverter supplies high voltage to this CCFL lamp.
If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LED flashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp. Please click on this link and follow my instructions to identify the fault and possible fix :-
