Having problems with your Flat Panel Televisions ?

I have a Vizio VF550M problem. I was watching a show and the picture faded to black. The audio was still playing but no picture. I turned the TV off and on again but I still have no picture. It used to flicker a couple of times but now it doesn't. I can see the backlight come on when I power it up. Any ideas what could be causing it? Thanks in advance

After turning off and ON the TV several times I get back normal pictures but the same phenomenon comes back in few minutes. I checked all 8 micro fuses I have

I'm running dual Samsung 305T monitors and one of them has been flickering from time to time. It just starts to flash and flicker. Now, it's all green and fuzzy. Still can see everything, but it's got a green hue and bad resolution. I swapped the cables on the two monitors, but the right side one is still green, so not a cable or connection issue. Thanks!

I have an Expressvu 4100. Within the last month my receiver is not picking up the signal of the remote unless the remote is directly in front of the receiver in front of the infrared reader. I have changed the batteries out twice, reset the receiver several times, unplugged the unit, waiting 5+ minutes and still no luck. As an added note, a couple of times within that same period, the remote did work as it should for an evening but it would not last for the following evening. Any suggestions?

??? My LG 50PN4500 TV has a strange one-time issue, I turned it on last night (was on standby) and a full screen "shadow" pattern of squares appeared? They were gray but I could see the colour programme still playing like normal behind them?

Anyone know what it was? I did change channels and run the DVD play
