What's up with my wiring?

I hope this is not a sign of serious problems! Just noticed that if I unplug, or plug in my television, it makes all of the lamps pluged into other outlets around the room flash. I don't do any electical work myself and am just wondering what this means. Thanks for any help!

It sounds like the wires are loose on the receptacle. turn off the power and check to see if theyare loose. If they are just backstabbed into the receptacle remove the wires and use the screw terminals. Pay attention to which wiregoes where to avoid creating another problem.
