Both my folks' TV and mine died with the same symptoms during the manufacturer's warranty. Both TVs were the same make and model (Samsung LN-T4665F), but mine failed after six weeks of ownership; theirs died a little over a year into it.
Still fighting with them... They paid nearly $1000 for a five-year warranty on just the TV, according to the shitbags at Circuit City. There's no way that covers only the set.
