I am very disappointed with this tv from sanyo. It started out great, and we were very happy to have finally made the splurge and bought a bit flat screen. The biggest we had prior to this is a 45 inch. So we got the tv home and installed it with an approved flat screen tv wall mount. The tv was easy to install with the mount, and the hook up was a breeze. We did not damage the tv at all, and carried it the way the box called for and there was no visible damage to the box it came in. We actually were given a tv from the storage, and not one that was sitting on a shelf where customers could touch it. We did nothing to the tv at all so we were very surprised when it started flickering on and off for no reason. We checked the cord and there is no damage to that and the plug in is fine as well and plugging other appliances into the same socket was also fine. We have no idea how this happened and why it's doing this. Sometimes we will turn it on and it will continue to flash on and off like we are hitting the power button repeatedly. Sometimes the sound will continue uninterupped while it's doing this. Once in a while it will start doing that when the tv is already on. When it starts this we turn it off for a while and then it seems to stop and not happen again for a while. We did not buy the extra warranty so we are stuck with this tv which is obviously not working correctly. We don't use it very much and just got it. It did this for the first time shortly after we got it. I know we did not cause any damage to the tv at all, and from what I can see if the box it has no tears of or dents or anything else in the cardboard box. I'm confused and disappointed in the brand because we spent a lot of money on this tv and I'm sure it's not going to last long in its condition. We may bring it to a man who fixes tvs loacally but I'm hesitant to spend any more money with this tv. I spend enough on it and the wall mount. I will never buy another product from this brand.
