Having problems with your Flat Panel Televisions ?

Hello, I jave a phillips ambilight I brought from best buy three years ago that stopped working. The sound comes on but there is no picture. Should I toss it or is there a cheap solution to the problem. I heard a repair may cost up to $500. Kenya Baltimore, MD.



Answers :

From the short diagnostic/symptoms description, I would hazzard a guess that the power to the lighting systems section is the culprit. I base this just on your statement that there is a total absence of picture/light thus indicating either a total light failure at the exact same moment ( highly unlikely, except as result of a severe voltage spike or lightening strike ). More common in this situation is, power to the lighting system has failed. Diagnostics to gain the exact cause should not be that expensive. But with technicians, just like plumbers, choose someone you trust with a good reputation for diagnostics ( Not a limited parts changer ).

Sincerely,

Doc Michael

I have a Samsung HLP 4674w DLP. The picture started to lose color and look like a negative image. Then it would get scrambled and eventually go out. Powering on and off sometimes fixed it, but only temporarily. Sometimes it would also turn off and on by itself. I thought it may be the lamp so I replaced it, but it did not fix the problem. Next I thought it may be the color wheel so I replaced that, but the problem did not go away. Also when this happens the Power switch will not turn the TV off.

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.

I am having problems with my Phillips HTS3410d home theater system, for looking around the internet I am fairly positive the problem is with an electrolytic capacitor. But all the solutions say it is an easy quick fix and that you should be able to see the bad capacitor. if you could point me in the right direction as to where to look for the bad part.


Hi, the signs of a bad capacitor are usually signs of it being a bit swollen on the top end, it will be silver colored ( opposite of the two metal leads coming out) also sometimes it will have pushed a rubber seal down around the metal leads towards ... Flat Panel Televisions

I have an 11 year old Toshiba DVD player. The last 2 times I rented a disk I had problems. Everything seems to be fine through the previews. When the movie starts to play, the screen goes green. The audio is fine. The video is there, but everything is green. I try the DVD in another player and it worked fine. I tried it in my laptop and it worked fine. Has anyone had a sinillar problem as this? Is there a solution to this issue? Please let me know
