I too purchased an Apex television two years ago this month at Khol's on Black Friday. Three weeks ago the screen went completely black, though the sound was still there. I unplugged it to reset it and it worked fine. But shortly thereafter, the same problem happened and this time unplugging it didn't work. I now have a constant black screen with sound. Yay for me!!! I thought I was getting a great deal, but this has been a total waste of money. From this point on I will be sure to read reviews before making a purchase such as this one. I must add that the TV was placed in one spot two years ago, never moved or dropped.
