Tonight while watching Netflix I my Samsung LCD TV started acting funny. Picture got a yellow tint and then kept blinking out like it was losing signal and coming back fuzzy. Video:

I tried a factory reset, different cables, different sources, different inputs: nothing helped.

My receiver (Onkyo 607) lost it's front display last week, I did some research and decided it had what appears to be a pretty common issue with heat. (I moved recently and I guess it's new home wasn't as ventilated as I thought.) I don't know if it's possible leaving it connected fried something on my TV but it is odd timing.

Anyone have any ideas on what's happening and/or how much it would cost to fix?


*edit*
I remembered my Wii uses component tonight and tested that. Appears to work fine after watching Netflix for about a half hour. So maybe it's just an HDMI thing?

I am thinking main board issues just because when the colors came back it also displayed your input info.
