I'm late to the party, but that test with that flashlight ia what i would have recommended because it's the best for determining if the backlight is out!

I do believe your right, thanks Doc.

Yeah Mark when I did that little test it was like I'll be darn.

Sorry to hear about the TV troubles Rick. I guess if you haven't been able to find a solution at least you have the extended warranty to fall back on thanks to the spouse. Now you might need to get her a diamond for X-mas. ;\)

Rick, try unplugging it from the outlet and wait 5 minutes. My old Sony CRT did this sometimes. I'd hear the "bong" as the degausser would fire up, but the picture would remain nonexistant.

Unplugging it reset the circuit board, or something-or-other in there, and it came back to life like a champ after a brief wait.

I've done that more than a few times Sean, it didn't work.

Oh.

Did you try the old stand by, and whack the TV with the palm of your hand?

No but I thought about shooting the son of a ***** . Then I thought that might void the warranty.
