Having problems with your Flat Panel Televisions ?

I have a 42LG20-UM that is having some issues. On the right side onf the TV the color gets distorted and there are shodows of the images from the show we are watching at the time. Now over a period of time it eventually goes back to normal but as soon as it is shut off it starts over. It started out as only a slight part of the right side and has progressively moved across the TV from right to left.

I have had my Sanyo DP46848 for 3 years now. Shortly after moving about a year ago my TV began to mess up. When I first turn my TV on the left side of the TV is mostly black and the picture that you can see on the left side of the screen has very bad ghosting effects. 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

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

I have a WS-65611 that I have replaced the caps on the DM board. Before I did that, the power LED flashed non stop, Now it does the normal 70 seconds but when I attempt to turn it on, it shuts right back off. After attempting a power up I checked the error code I got a short protect error. I then removed the DM again and verified the caps were not shorted to the shield and checked the pico fuse and found everything to be good. Any ideas of where I should start looking??

I have a GE 31GT740 31" TV That turns itself off and then back on every few seconds. There is now a broken (dashed) white line that goes from the very top center of the screen to the right side. The TV will stay on until a comercial comes on and then begin shutting off and back on several times. On cable channels that have no comercials, it will stay on for an entire movie and then begin again when the comercials start. When playing a DVD it will cut on and off at the beginning, when previews, e

I am having the same problem with my 3 yr old 52 inch Bravia HD LCD TV. The right side of screen starts out darker than the left side and then in about 5 minutes it brightens on the right and has horizontal lines for another 10 minutes. Then suddenly the whole screen pops on and the picture is fine. Is this a simple fix or an expensive one? I'm very disappointed as we paid big $$ for this set from Circuit City. Sony should be backing up their product with this problem. I have posts all ove

Our Vizeo P42 purchased in July 2005 has had a red vertical bar on the left side for about two months. About a week ago it developed vertical lines across the left half of the screen with no picture behind them that we can see. The right side of the screen is normal and sound is normal. Is it worth taking in to be fixed? AL

Samsung SyncMaster 305T One-half of the screen (the right-hand side) gets dark. It turns black and I can barely read the text in a document. This problem is NOT consistant. In other words, some of the time the right-side lights-up and looks normal. I have read some of the other expert answers and it seems the flourescent back-light bulb is the problem. My questions: 1) Where can I find the part number for this bulb and who sells them? 2) Is there another part in the circuit that may be the

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

My FAVI L3226EA-WH won't start as it should. I have to press the button on the side of the TV 5-10 times before the start holds a picture. Is it possible the capacitors are leaky, unable to hold enough charge for proper start of the TV? The set runs perfectly all day and night once it is running. If I shut it down for a few minutes and it is still warm, it will often start on the first try. What part will solve this problem?
