Summary: I purchased this new on at Target in Oct '11. I am out of town 4+ days a week, so I don't watch tv often. Last night, I had it on for about 20mins & I heard a "pop". The orange light for "sleep mode" went on for a sec & then nothing. Power in house was fine. Dvd player in same outlet still working.
