This is what's happening to my unit. Nothing I do fixes it, it just randomly cut off in the middle of the night a couple days ago. Please post a fix if you find something that works. Thanx!!

Have you gotten any response for fixing this issue? We had the same black screen image appearance and then it suddenly started going in and out automatically on brightness-- flashing in and out without any good view. Any thoughts?
