I have a samsung LA32s71b tv that 3 months ago had to have the sound board chip replaced by tisco as it failed(only 7 months old).
since its been back my daughter and i notice that the picture goes from very bright to dull in a flicker and then back again.

also when i power the tv up it can take up to 5 minutes for the picture to become bright.the first minute it is very dark.
when watching the credits to a program its flickers almost strobe like.
im on telstra digital in wellington.
does this sound like i have major problems or is this what people mean in regards to blacks and dark colours not being very good on

year ago I bought a brand new Panasonic 32inch TV which had the internal power supply fuse blow 4 times ( got replaced by the tisco serviceman everytime ) when it did it for the fifth time , I got a mate to help me carry the freakin thing into the store where I bought it - and demanded my money back .
I told the manager I wasn't leaving til I got my money back . I got my money back pretty quickly after mentioning fair trading act and the rights of consumers etc...
even got to keep the original nice TV cabinet ( which cost a $1 when I purchased the TV ) Sealed
