Hi there, My Phillips is 2 1/2 yrs old. We suffer colour fade, initially noticable as blacks turning grey and flickering, followed by almost total colour loss at which point the TV either shuts off or the screen turns a "plum" colour. The TV then switches back on but with an extremly bright flashing light from top to bottom in centre of screen for 10-20 seconds, the picture is then fine for a while. Our local TV guy couldn't find the fault. It occurs with any signal (sky, terrestrial, DVD or PS2). Has anyone else encountered similar. The tech support at Phillips was no help.
