display was going black briefly flashing annoyingly over the past week or so . yes menu comes up no problem now and the tv seems to be functioning fine this evening with volume control and all other buttons working fine now? but things could change within hours .almost like its possessed .

You must perform the test DURING the fault phase so when its black press the menu button of the sets own remote control let me know if the menu comes up whilst its black, this will tell me a lot about what is happening with it and eliminate various things ,so there is no rush most prob with TV are intermittent ones so just come back here when ready
