Anyone have any idea what is going on here? TV does this about 75% of the time. Any input is appreciated.

The right side of the screen is a mess.

I would connect another TV, and make sure that the issue is not from the signal from whatever source. You can also try a different HDMI port.

If it is from the TV, you are correct that it does not pay to fix these HDTV's.

Thanks, digitaldoc. I've updated the post with the video embedded.

ETA: The 25% of the time it's NOT flickering, black, or a solid color on that strip of screen, it works fine. I'm basically trying to assess whether this is a relatively easy fix, or if it's time for a new television. I've always been told that televisions are rarely worth the money spent fixing them, so I'm wary about taking this into a shop just yet.

Indeed, it does this whether I'm using cable, watching a blu-ray, streaming, etc, so does this despite the source or connection. Thanks for chiming in -- looks like it's time to go shopping.
