Toshiba 42LX177

Toshiba replaced my old set with the lx177 about two months ago due to banding issues on my old set. Today the picture on the new set started flashing. I turned it off and turned it back on and it was still there. I turned it off one more time and waited and when I turned it back on, it went away. Any people had this problem with their lcd tv? This is the second time that this has happened on my set.

I have had the 52LX177 since early October and love it. I don't see the artifacts and banding you report.

I didn't have banding on this set. It was on my last set, the lx196. I only got the flashing on this set though, twice now. It's like someone turning your tv on and off continuously. Just wondering if anyone else has seen this. I called Toshiba and they have heard about this. They told me to camcorder it the next time it happens for the tech to see. I tried to record it on my dvr, didn't work.

Keep track if it keeps going get it replaced. I get a hum with mine I was told its normal by a tech. Never had flashes I really do think they pawn off refurbs after a while. Toshibas a garbage company as far as I am concerned like you, I had banding with my 196 that was replaced with a humming 177. And I tried to purchase 2 of their HD DVD players and both crash and got error messages upon playing back movies. I went back to the 360 add on which is more reliable.

Was this banding or "a horizontal bar scrolling down through the screen"

I ask because the 46" was recalled
