I have had my 46 LCD panel for 19 months. Just out of warranty. The left side of the screen flickers until the TV is warmed up. Once it is warm, it is perfect. I have an extended warranty through warrantech, but I do not know what they are going to do about it yet. They dispatched the local technician and he diagnosed it over the phone as a bad panel. Has anyone else had a similar experience? What was the problem? How was it fixed? Thanks!
