I had the 36XS955 for 7 years now. For the pass week, the TV starting giving blinks instead of power on, I have to use "plug and unplug" to have it power up.
Now the TV is "ON", but I am afraid to turn it off, that it may not power on again. I am not handy enough to fix it as other saying here about the IC. And most other saying problems with blinking (not power on), but few mentioned CRT tube failure.
1. So is it a good idea to leave it on ? (when I am done with watching TV, I change the TV to other INPUT number, set display to "PRO" and all settings to lowest values)
2. what will be my electric cost ?
