Philips 42PFL5522D/05 RED SNOW

Hi there. I recently purchased the Philips 42PFL5522D/05. After about an hour of turning on noticably beginning showing red snow instead of blacks. I have had this tv less than a week so I am rather annoyed. I know there have been a few other red snow threads but most concentrate on plasma screens and not lcds. I have followed the guidelines, Its positioned in an area where it is well ventilated, not direct sunlight etc, its not too warm or cold. I have restored the factory settings, tried adjusting the picture, moving other electronic equipment, disconnecting the aerial and so on. The red snow occurs on every input anyway so i doubt it is that.

I just thought I would see if anyone had any suggestions before ringing philips and complaining loudly.

Cheers for any help

To be honest, I'd exchange it for a new one or a different brand. From my experience, Philips tends to see more problems than some other brands.

Ditto that!
