I'm one of the "lucky" individuals who has had the Samsung blink issue for over 6 months now. It started well before firmware 1032, and was unrelated to netflix. It happens usually when I am watching cable TV, which would suggest the cable box is to blame, but it has also happened a couple times with my Wii. In the coruse of troubleshooting the problem, I had a Pioneer AVR fixed (they couldn't find a problem with it), and then replaced with a Yamaha AVR. The blink was still there, so I contacted Samsung for repair. They came and switched out the X and Y boards. The blink was still there. I just had them back out today and he replaced the main board and the power supply. He said the only thing left to replace would be a few ribbons or the display itself. I asked Samsung what my options were, and they said they always try three repairs before considering anything else. If the problem is still there, I hope I can do an exchange and pick up a 2011 model. Maybe the new models are free from buzzing (mine buzzes) and don't blink, either. I will keep everyone posted so if you are planning to have a repair tech come out, you can let him/her know that someone else with this issue had all the boards replaced and it didn't do any good. By the way, for those with the non-Netflix blink, what set top box/DVR are you using? Mine is the Motorola DCX3400. I still wonder if it's to blame, but the blink shouldn't have occurred with my Wii, then...I'm stumped.
