1. The AC wall outlet where my Panamax surge protector is plugged
2. The specific outlet on the Panamax where the C8000 is plugged
3. The HDMI Out cable from my Denon receiver (different cables show the blinking)
3a. I have also bypassed the Denon and gone straight from my TiVo Premiere to the C8000
4. Tried other devices such as my Samsung Blu-ray player and a Pioneer DVR-650H-K DVR burner
I will post a video shortly. A friend who used to have a home electronics repair shop thinks that I may have a popped capacitor or that it may be a power supply issue. The set powers up normally but the blinking begins within 5-10 minutes. It first began blinking about 2-3 weeks ago but was intermittent and did not last too long, the picture would be normal after only a few blinks. The firmware version is T-VALAUSC-1035.0 (not sure of build date).
I purchased it from Magnolia in Seattle (NOT the one in Best Buy) and unbelievably did not buy an extended warranty (!). This is my only TV and I am concerned that a service call will be $$$.
Edit: I am not streaming anything (don't use it). Also, the TV is on 10+ hours a day, 365.
Wasn't sure which sub-forum to use.
