Can my tv be fixed?

I have a LG 48 inch tv which is suppose to be good but when i first turn it on, it will start flickering on and off for a few seconds but eventually it will come on and stay on. Any suggestions as to what it might be and is it costly to fix?

    A TV repair shop should be able to cure it.

    Like any electrical device, televisions need their power circuits cycled -- or cleared -- from time to time. Static electricity or electrical loops cause strange behavior in electronics, but cycling power almost always helps or, at the very least, is an important troubleshooting step. Unplug the TV from any power supplies and then press and hold the power button for a few seconds. Let the TV sit for a minute or two, then plug it back in.
