It has worked great since we got it like 15 years ago! watching it last week and it just popped off and will not turn back on. I unpluged it and took off back panel. plugged it back in to see if any lights came on. 2 small green lights came on and 2 seconds later 1 more came on, but then ALL three popped off. Is this something I can fix?

After watching for about 10 to 20 minutes the tv does something weird like your'e pressing the input button. It keeps switching from tv to vidio or whatever else happens when you press the input button. When the screen keeps switching like that it just goes back and forth so your picture keeps coming on for a second and then back off. If you try to press the input button to fix it nothing happens. You just have to turn off your tv. It has its own dvd player on the bottom. I'm wondering if that

My screen is tinted red and the picture is very dim. The menu of colors says that it's balanced. I tried increasing and decreasing the color and brightness but it didn't change.

I have a SONIQ QSP500T Plasma TV. When I turn it on you hear it click off again even though the blue light says. When it does not click a second time it comes on with sound only. If I leave it like this for 10 minutes. I can turn it off and back on and get picture aswell. Would this be something that can be fixed by software?

I have a 4 year old WEGA Trinitron HD TV (model # KV- 30HS420) that over the last few months has been switching between full color and color missing green colorations. Most of the time now the full colour is missing. I have tried adjusting the video menu options like hue, color temp etc but it doesn't seem to be enough to bring back full color . Is there a fix for this or is the TV going?

I have a vizio vw37l hdtv20a. A few years ago shortly after getting it the TV made a sound almost like something popping, then just turned off. When i plug it in no lights come on or anything. It's been a few years, but I just decided to get it back out and try to fix it. Would this possibly just be a blown fuse? The TV was hooked up to my computer at the time also by the way.

It is a Panasonic PT 51G44A. It went out while I was watching tv. Tried to turn it back on, it made the sound like it was starting up then back to off. If I unplug it and plug it back in it does the same thing, start sound then off. Is this a problem I can fix myself or is it time to trash it.

The original remote control for Teletech TV is blocked. Grandma pressed something and suddenly the remote got stucked on a channel. She thought it is ok to turn off the TV, cause the remote was not answering to any commands. But after she turn the TV back on (pluged-in) the remote was useless. I bought a new remote, compatible with the original one, and the TV is working fine. I guess the remote is somehow blocked. Is there any combination of keys I can use to un-block it?

My Hitachi 43FDX20B's color goes in and out. If I bump the TV the color sometimes comes back on; sometimes it will come back on its own. Also of late there is a blue ghost image to the right, which appears to be a convergence problem. Is this something I can fix myself? How? Thank you

Screen I have a 2000 (year) 53" Hitachi Ultravision (53sbx01b) TV. Last week when I had new carpet installed they broke the screen. The TV still works, you can still see the video; however, you see the broke screen. Is this something that can be fixed? The screen does look as if it is removable. If it can be fixed, what is the cost? I'm trying to weigh the options and find out if it is just as cheap to buy a new TV.

I have a VP50HDTV20A, was watching tv this past Sunday and all of a sudden it shut off. Tried to manually turn it on and then noticed that the yellow/green light was off....acts like there isn't any power getting to it. Checked all outlets, they work with other electrical cords, un-plugged tv and plugged in again....nothing? I wonder if this is something that can be fixed or if anyone else has encountered this problem? I don't want to have a tech come to fix it and spend the money to do it i

I have a Samsung ln46c630 which was purchased in May 2010. For the last few weeks it has started to have a strobing effect. Switching the source sometimes fixes the problem. It will run fine for a while but the strobing returns. It is very obvious, like being in a disco. The strobing often starts when a commercial begins but then does not normally stop without the tv source being changed. Changing the source does not always fix the problem.

I have a RCA L26WD26D Flat Screen TV. When you turn it on it will say "please wait". This lasts for 30 seconds or so. Then that goes off and the screen turns black with some sections turning white. It will vary the back and white and will stay like this for maybe 20 minutes. Then it will start showing vertical colored lines. They will change also and eventually turn back to black and white. After leaving the TV on for about 5 or 6 hours, the picture finally shows up and looks fine. So now I'm af

I have a hitachi plazma TV, I asked about it last week. It went completely green with sound then completely black with no sound. I was told it is shot but if I took the back off and took the boards apart and put back it may work. My question is after doing that nothing happened but I noticed that movies in the DVD player work perfect and video games work fine. If they both still work could it be something simple to repair, or is the TV still shot?

I read somewhere that, to fix this, I would need to do something to the area that makes the connection between the projection and the actual input. I am horrible with
