I had the yellow light blinking 3 times on my Regza. I held the power and the menu buttons down at the same time and the yellow light stopped blinking and the tv works now. I was just about to buy a new tv too.…I guess we'll see if it lasts. I want a new tv, but I don't want to spend the money if I don't have to. Also, I had kind of a faint reddish splotch on the right side of the screen before, and I'm pretty sure it is gone now. I don't know how, but it is.
