Having problems with your Flat Panel Televisions ?

We have a samsung television that is few years old. All of a sudden we had thick green and purple vertical stripes over the picture and sound was fine. However, playing the xbox or watching a dvd, it looks perfect. I found that when we unplugged the power cord, it would be fine for a while. But now that isn't even helping. Today it seems that the sound went as well! Time for a new one-or simple fix?

We found a vizio LCD tv outside so we brought it in in the hopes that we found a good tv for free. We didn't find a power cord but the one from our computer fits it. And the light on the front comes up orange. We don't get any sound or picture. Do we need to buy a real power cord for it? Or could it be something else inside the tv?

I have a Gateway p46m103 flat screen television that will only turn on after plugging and unplugging the power cord many times. It would eventually turn on each time I tried this. Now, however, the green power light comes on, and I can hear it is on, but the screen is all black. I even tried pressing the Input button on the front of the television, to see if I had accidentally changed it, and even the icon on the screen will not show, to see if I am seeing the cable box, or the dvd player, etc.

We bought a new LG 32LD460 tv this morning. It switched on fine and we had it running with good picture and all. Then we left it for a while and came back to try and set up the xbox.
