My love affair with our thirteen month old Sharp Aquos LC-32D40U fizzled out over a period of months. Blackouts began shortly after we purchased the television and became more and more frequent. We could get sound but the screen would remain black. We could get our picture back by unplugging everything and then plugging it all back in again or by letting the set "rest".
Yesterday morning, the love affair ended abruptly when the television remained black despite our efforts at CPR. We could hear our favorite programs but could not see them.
