The tv arrived yesterday and it worked fine for an hour and a half till I decided to update the firmware. It downloaded the new firmware and after it finished downloading, the "download complete, installing firmware" message showed up. Then, suddenly my tv went dead (no picture, no sound, no background light, nothing).
I waited for about 15 mins with no luck. Then, I decided to turn off the TV disconnect it from power, connect it again, and turn it on. The red light in the bottom right corner comes on. When using the magic remote to turn the tv on, the red light flashes three times and then it goes off. However, no picture or sound is displayed on the screen (as if the tv is off). When I hit the power button again on the magic remote, the red light stays on (as if the tv is going to standby).
Unfortunately, the tv is covered by warranty only in the US. I am using the tv abroad now, so I'm out of luck.
Any suggestion on how to fix this ? I tried hard resetting the tv by pressing the on/off button for 30 seconds while the tv is disconnected from power but that didn't help.
