The content shown dont help either. Then try to get them

Forget that idea.........

All I can say is I got a 32" Sony about 6 yrs ago & it has been
flawless. It even can give a mild natural pix like a CRT set.
Not overstated, inaccurate colors & room lighting brightness........

Sounds like you're shopping at the wrong kind of store.

I have no idea what kind of TV I would buy now. I haven't bought a new one in 10 years. I got a Vizio 32" Plasma back in '08, used that until I got a 52" Mitsu DLP RPTV (lol lightbulbs) and have been using various DLP, CRT, and LCoS/D-ILA projectors, My latest being a JVC DLA-RS30U. I never did like LCD. Meh colors and backlight bleed. Hell Even my computer monitor is a CRT (LaCie 22" Diamondtron). Now if I could locate another one of those.......

Any comments or suggestions will be appreciated.

Don't think the plug/unplug routine would help, but I might give it a try. Regardless, shopping may be over. One of our sons closed one of his restaurants and has several 55 inchers that are now surplus. Don't know brands, but he said "$100 and one's yours." Likely the route we'll go.
