Having problems with your Flat Panel Televisions ?

My LG 32LC7D TV takes 20 - 30 minutes for the picture and sound to appear. I have done all the basics to investigate to no avail. I do know that if I turn it off and then straight back on after this 20 - 30 minute waiting period it does turn on immediately. I suspect it needs to warm up somehow and I am thinking it won't be cheap to fix. Any help is appreciated.



Answers :

I would start with the power supply, check the condition of the capacitors. Look for any with bulged tops.

I have a Samsung DLP TV (model HLT5076S). When you turn it on there is no picture for several minutes (5-10 minutes) and then there is no sound once the picture comes on. You need to turn the TV back off & then restart it to get both picture and sound. Sometimes you need to do this several times before the TV turns on, you hear a click, and then you get picture & sound. It seems like it is waiting for something to warm up? The problem is not the bulb (fairly new) or with the electrical outl

The TV seems to take ages to turn on, the red on/off light flashes and then goes off completely and the screen stays blank. It then switches on again and after a few seconds/minutes will switch back off. Eventually it seems to warm up and stay on. On occasion it will take up to 10 minutes for the TV to warm up and switch on. Once on there is no problems. I have not tried fixing this as I feel it may well be a job for a qualified technician. Please advise if the TV is safe to use, and what's need

I have a Polaroid FLM 3772 that when it is turned on has a whinning/humming noise and after 5+ minutes it almost completely goes away. As if it quits once the TV is warmed up and just recently the screen will turn greenish with vertical lines sometimes. The line problem will go away if I unplug and replug in the Green video cable. Can anyone tell me what this is and is it something that can be repaired and if so what part(s) are needed and where can I get them. Thanks Bobby

My Pace TDC770d is turning on, then off over and over again, roughly 8 times per minute. When it's on, it shows a blue screen and says "loading.... bla bla bla..." then turns off immediately. I've tried unplugging the power to the box for 30 seconds at a time with no luck. This happens a lot. I think it's possessed. I need a priest or something.

About 8 months ago, every time I turned on the TV (SK-26H590D), only vertical lines would appears... almost like watercolor: green, orange, etc. However, you could hear the channels and change them as well... but still no picture at first.

Hello everyone, I am having an interesting issue with my 60vs810 recently and was wondering if some of you guys can help. After the TV has been turned off for a while (about 4 hours or longer), when i turn it on, the screen is fuzzy for about 10 minutes until it is warmed up and then the picture stabilizes. It's hard to explain but it looks like the horizontal hold is shaking really bad. It does it on all of my inputs also. After about 10 minutes, the TV seems to be warmed up and it works
