Chassis # is: BZ000525370693 (serial #?)
This is a 26 inch hd lcd tv, 4 months old with the following problem that is intermittent 6-7 times. When I turn the set on I get audio but no video as if the backlight isn't turning on, but.... turning it off then on again sets things far!
Anyone have the same/similar problem?
Things like this usually get worse....

Well..... it just now blew up, off to the repair shop!
The set let loose with 2 seconds of bllaaatt then nothing but a smell of ozone hanging in the air & a black screen.
I may post a repair cost if I decide to go that route, but one thing for sure I'll never buy from this manufacturer again...

It was the power supply $376.00 out the door.
Hoped that the intermittent problem with the backlight would go away, but no will go for weeks before acting up.
