I've read lots of posts of TVs shutting themselves down and not restarting, so I was a bit alarmed when mine did the following.
An hour into viewing, the sound cut out, followed by the picture and the pilot light chevron briefly blinked out and came back on.
Then the set restarted itself normally with no more problems. Until the next day, when the exact same thing happened again!
I called Aquos Advantage and was treated with respect, but they have no record of this kind of problem ever happening before.
I was told that I should unplug the set for 5 minutes and replug it to allow the TV to reboot. I did that and haven't seen the
problem re-appear as yet. I was assured that it would be covered by warranty indefinitely because I had filed a report on the issue.
The set went through an update several weeks ago and has never had power removed meantime, so maybe it's as simple as
needing that hard re-boot. I'd rather not do a factory re-set, since I would lose the calibration settings that I worked on for so long.
Just wondering if anyone else has had a similar issue...thoughts...
