I received a 40" Toshiba HDTV for Christmas from my kids and yesterday I was adjusting some of the settings while watching tv and the whole screen faded to black. I wasn't changing any darkness settings at the time and certainly not anything drastic enough to go black. What do you think this could be and is it a warning of future problems. I thinkl about it everytime I watch it now, Nervous couch potato!

unplug the set and let it sit for 30 minutes. If this doesnt fix the problem, most likely a backlight failure. Good luck!
