ok its happened a couple of times now, and I was hoping someone here knows what the hell its all about...

Basiclly the tv is fine most of the time, but during normal watching, sometimes you get like a bright flash from the screen? I am in the other room and saw it the first time, and it was kind of like lightening going off? that kind of flash.....

Any Ideas?
Please let me know asap if it could be something dangerous

I had a similar issue, it turns out that the problem was a spider that had become burnt onto the main PCB. The spider must have crawled onto the PCB and shorted out one of the tracks, this caused a capacitor to charge and discharge continuously while the TV was on, though the flash would only occur after it had been in use for more than an hour.

I took it to a TV repair place (they still have those?!) and had it sorted in an hour, now I keep a dust sheet over it when not in use.

Subliminal messages aren't illegal on US television like they are in many other countries.

That's part of a special order that was supposed to end up here in my secret underground research lab, but got sent to Curry's instead.

The flashes are quantam energy bleeding into the visual light spectrum in normal space from the dimensional portal built into the TV.

On no account are you to enter the portal and have a series of improbable dimension hopping adventures that all seem to take just under an hour (with time for ad breaks and the moral message at the end) and happen at roughly weekly intervals.

edit:- Oh yeah, and stay the **** away from my light cycle as well. I've had it twocced twice this month by rioting chavs from London who nicked TVs from the same batch and the insurance company are getting arsey about my premiums.
