My 51S500 turned off and on again by itself while watching some football the other day.
Marc Alexander told me to set the video 2 input remote control to off and I did that, but it still turned on and off by itself in the span of say 1.5 seconds. Second time this has happened in the two months I've owned the TV.
Marc or anyone else, have any clue what's going on?
Must be a virus (I read it on the Internet, it must be true!!!). Ex-wife's perspectives aside -and seriously though:
I read your post when I got back from the George Carlin show here an hour ago, and, lo and behold, at 10:40est, while watching CSI on CBS-Detroit-HD, my 57S500 took a catnap for about a second, then came back to life. There was an audible click both on departure and return when she (it?) shut off and came back on again.
First time this has happened in the 5+ weeks I've had the set!
I doubt it's George or the x's doing, so I have a tech coming in (from a different local Hitachi approved service co.), to address some other issues - will put the q. to him and post whatever I find out.
