I bought this model from empiredirect.co.uk just before Christmas (excellent delivery service to Northern Ireland!) and after a few days of use a problem has surfaced. I haven't seen this mentioned anywhere in this forum but I hope you can help me. At irregular intervals the TV flicks off then on. It's as if the power has momentarily been disrupted. The picture returns and everthing is fine. This could happen three times in 10 minutes, or once a day. It's very infuriating. Any ideas? I'll be contacting empiredirect.co.uk next week when the Christmas/New Year shenanigans are behind us. Hopefully they won't be deluges with a mass of returns!!
