Having problems with your Flat Panel Televisions ?

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.

My RCA 52 inch rear projector had started turning itself off last. This happenend several times but we were able to turn it back on with no problem. Friday it was on for several hours and I turned it off. About two hours later, I tried to turn it on and it kept the green on switch for about 4 sec and turn off. Then it would turn green for the same length of time with a "SIZZLING BACON" sound. It would try to restart itself one more time after turning itself off. Is this tv FRIED?.

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?

Audio problem sometimes the sound goes out. if i start to put ear phones in the jack, sound comes back. first time it happened, a few weeks ago, sound came back and it was ok for a while. today, had to put the speaker partially in, gently wiggle, let it hang there, would work a few minutes, then i had to gently wiggle again. When the show i was watching was over, I turned it off.


What you likely have is the socket the jack goes into is damaged--it is supposed to cut the speakers off when the jack is inserted.The socket can be replaced: a small round nut secures it (around the entrance) and it only has 3 wires in most ... Polaroid Flat Panel Televisions

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. I could turn it back on with no problem. That time period kept getting shorter and sometimes it would take 2 or 3 tries to get it to come on. Once back on it would play until I turned it off. 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 Panasonic TH-42PZ85U plasma TV. I have had it for approx 5 years. Lately the left half of the screen will go completely white at random. It stays white for 10 to 30 min then goes back to normal. The right half and the sound work fine during this problem. It has been occurring more frequently the last few weeks. Maybe once every hour or two of viewing. Please let me know if you have any insight into this problem. Thanks!

My Samsung Plasma 42 in. TV turns itself off after a couple of minutes of being on and then makes a clicking sound like its trying to turn on again but it doesn't turn back on. It just makes this clicking sound. If I unplug it, sometimes it will function normally again and sometimes the same problem occurs. We thought it might be the power strip so we plugged it into a different outlet. At first, this seemed to work. Then, the cable box and the sound system started turning off spontaneously

You could still make out the programme images behind the cloudy screen but when we turned off and on the cloudyness happened quicker.

The picture will come on when you first turn it on but after 15 minutes or so it fades away. The sound still comes out but no picture. Sometimes it will come back on on its own after a while and then go out again. If you turn it back off for 15 minutes or so it usually comes back on. We already bought a new tv and that one works fine so its not the cable box but I would like to put the old tv in my room.
