Having problems with your Flat Panel Televisions ?

Picture problems Upon startup, the right 1/3rd of the screen has a trailing rainbow effect. This sometimes clears up quickly but sometimes takes hours. When it does clear up the picture is perfect. Then if I shut it off the whole process starts again. sometimes when the rainbow effect subsides the right side of the screen gets very dark almost black and the picture cannot be seen on that part of the screen. Is this a simple component that can be replaced of is it something more? I love the pict



Answers :

A general answer is:

Most sets like this one use two boards to drive the screen--in this one there is one for left half and another for right side.

Different brands use different names like inverter, etc but it seems issue is on right side?

Unlikely but possible is also a issue in the power supply but usually if there both sides or whole screen is affected..

The fact it clears up after some time means it is a thermal or temperature problem---it could even be a solder connection.

The problem would have to be isolated to one board (not always easy) and the board replaced to see if it cures the issue or not.

Also consider spending the time with Toshiba customer service to see if their data base (they log all reports of problems) has some information that might help you.

I have had my Sanyo DP46848 for 3 years now. Shortly after moving about a year ago my TV began to mess up.

The blackness seems to be in 3 horizontal bars covering the whole height of my TV. The right 1/3 of the TV looks normal and the right side has never looked wrong. The black bars will disappear starting at the top bar and final

I can tap on the side of the set and it works for about an hour, then it comes right back. Also, I have tried to get a service manual for this tv and cannot find one, any suggestions on how to fix this problem would be greatly appreciated.

The right side of our screen keeps going dark, almost black. Once I tapped the side of the tv and it popped back to normal. Sometimes it goes back to normal by itself. It is black most of the time though. Is this fixable?


Yes usually fixable unless its the panel goning bad. What if you squeze the panel where the black bar is does that effect it. If so the cabinet is probably bowed. Hope this helps. ... Sanyo Standard (CRT) Televisions

If we fiddle with the aerial cable, the picture jumps back. This happens sometimes after 30 mins of perfect picture, and sometimes after 3 hours.. sometimes not at all!Have replaced cable, no joy - same problem - and to be fair

This happens intermittently; when I unplug the power source for a small amount of time it sometimes fixes the problem and the screen comes on, however it often takes several tries. Periodically it just comes on right away. Also the remote frequently s
