My Philips 32PFL5604H TV has had a sound problem for a while. It originally occurred when I the TV was turned off for less than an hour then turned back on the sound would not work. If left for over an hour and then turned back on it would work fine. The problem seems to be happening more frequently now and rarely does the sound come back on. Can it be fixed or is it time for the bin.

I have a Vizio P50 HDTV20A, this TV is 2 years old this month. TV will not turn on in the morning after being off for hours. The green power light comes on and you can hear a sound like the TV is turning on but the screen in black, no picture, no sound. I ususally can get the TV to come back on after unplugging it 20 times but when it does turn on it makes a static sound, I see a quick flash of a grey screen and then the TV works. Any suggestions to what might be the problem?

Hi, I have a 42 inch NEC plasma tv I purchased about t years ago, about 6 months ago every now and then the sound would become slightly distorted like a swishing noise shortly after the tv was turned on. Now recently the sound does not come on at all when the tv is switched on. If the tv is left on the sound may come on eventually by itself after around 30mins till up to 3 hours after being turned on. And on occasion the sound will come on straight away when switched on.

My Hitachi Mod # 50FX19K, Ser # V6H000056 Man Aug 1996 has a power problem. About a month ago it started turning off for no apparent reason after I was watching for an hour or so.

Now it only stays on for about 30 seconds and I can't get it to restart. If I wait and hour or two it will come back on but only

I have a Samsung TV model LN40C530F and I have 2 problems with it. 1. Suddenly, the sound rises for a few minutes and it comes back at the initial level. It can happen several times during a program. 2 . Every time when I switch from HD channels into analogical channels, the picture moves to the right about 2 inches.
