My power went out last night for 3 hours. When the power came back on the tv didn't automatically start. I had to turn the tv on.

After about a minute, a screen appeared that said "Entering Diagnostic Mode".

It stayed like that for about 30 seconds, then another screen appeared with alot of numbers and stuff that i didn't understand. There were 3 menu choices on the left. I scrolled down to the one that said "Exit".

I don't remember what the other 2 said.

Anyway, after a few seconds the tv started in normal picture mode.

The tv still looks great, no obvious problems. Nothing seems to have changed.

BTW, I do have the tv plugged into a surge protector.

Is this a normal routine after a lengthy power failure?

If it's working fine, don't worry about it. For the future, in case of power outage it's always a good idea to unplug expensive electronics in case there's a surge that your surge protector or backup supply is unable to cope with or prolongued power "hazing".
