Yes and this is the info that I found when mine did this. I disabled the HDMI controls as well ,on the TV and my AVR. I have not had the problem again.
3. TV turned itself off and the light on the front panel started to flash.
• Momentary power fluctuation can cause the TV to turn off
to prevent damage. Wait for the green light to stop flashing
and turn the TV on again.
• If the TV does not stay on, press the POWER button on the
control panel for ten seconds to perform System Reset. If
this happens frequently, obtain an AC line power conditioner/
• An unusual digital signal may have been received, triggering a
protection circuit. Wait for the light to stop flashing and turn TV
