Having problems with your Flat Panel Televisions ?

Lost picture Lately,after about an hr1/2 the picture suddenly disappears. I still have sound but the screen goes black.. no warning, just picture gone. new batteries in the remote. I shut the system down (set top box&tv) then turn it back on and so far the picture's been coming back. I've had the set since '05.I'd appreciate your input. Thanks.



Answers :

Try unplugging everything and then plugging it back in. When my xbox had the "ring of fire" my brother asked me to fix it and I just unplugged and re plugged it worked and came back to life. (be careful that you either have the instuction menu for setup of you can remember where all the plugs go, otherwise you'll have to right down what goes where or else you may get confused and never be able to fix your poor television)

My Sony KDL-40XBR7 has developed two problems. 1) Sometimes when changing channels the screen turns green. I can solve this by turning off the set then back on, but what's causing the problem? 2) In the past few days whenever I turn the TV on there are horizontal bands from top to bottom. They are faint and the picture can still be seen. Additionally the picture is ghosted; a second ghost image appears larger and below the original. This lasts for a few minutes then goes away. Of course, the TV

The picture flashed green to black several times and the image went askew. Then everything went black and stayed that way. Sound remained on. After a few minutes, I tried to turn the unit back on and it did the white up and down lights ending with the two top lights on (now red). I have changed bulbs twice before when this happened and that fixed it. This time it didn't. One new thing that happens now (I know this is weird) is that when I turn it on the set chirps in the vicinity of the bu

When I turn on the set, the right half of the screen is distorted. It flickers, different colors move from center to far right of screen, double images that appear as negitives and sometimes that half of the screen is very dark. Sometimes it will clear up for a second or two then go back to the problem. When the problem first started, it only lasted for approx 10-15 minutes then the picture was great. Now it takes 1-2 hours for it to clear up. Once it clears, I get a great picture. The lef

I have a 37 inch lcd hd tv made by Curtis model 3717A. I bought the set about 18 months ago. When I attempt to turn the set on either manually or by remote, the on/off light begins flashing but there is no picture. After leaving the set unplugged for several hours I was able to turn the set back on. Since that time I stopped using the tv's on/off, instead just using the cable box. My cat stepped on the power strip yeserday and now the tv will not power back up. Help.

I have a vizio vp50 hdtv20a. A while back we turned it on no picture and it started to smoke. After reading a little about it I decided to take off back panel and see if I could locate burnt part. Could not locate burnt part so repair man came and we plugged in set with back off and turned set on. Resisters on y main board started to get red and start to smoke. So we figured it was a bad y main board. Repair man said he would order part and get back with us in couple days. Three weeks later

I have Toshiba 57H94. For quite awhile, when you first turn it on, usually it only shows about 2/3 picture with a green or washed out color & then only shows the very top left corner of the normal picture, only magnified to take up that 2/3rds of the screen. You can fix it by turning on & off the TV 2 to 5 times. Once the picture takes up the full screen, the picture is great and then you can turn it on and off with no problem till you leave it set and totally cool off. When you're turning i

I have a 22 inch AOC Envision LCD TV. When I first turn it on, only the top half of the screen displays picture while the bottom half is a gray/black color. If I wait about ten minutes or if I tap on the back of the TV, the picture is completely restored and I can watch everything just fine. However, it is pretty annoying to wait for the picture to come back. Since the picture does come back after a while and looks fine, I don't think I have a broken backlight or anything like that.

Hi Guys, I have a JVC 32T55EKS TV & the picture is overly dark. When the picture goes through the set-top box the picture gets even darker. The brightness is turned up fully & I have accessed the service menu by pressing "i" & "mute" together & turned the brightness up to 18 (max), but the picture is still on the dark side.

Hello, so, this is the situation: I have lost my TV manual and I want to set the TV picture format to 16:9 for permanent, or even better, set it to "automatic". I have the Sony RM-833 remote control for the Sony KV-X2101D Trinitron television. So far, I have managed to change the picture format to 16:9, but it changes back to "Normal" (4:3 format I suppose) every time I switch channel. So, how can I memorize this16:9 format as permanent? Or even make the picture format change automaticall

I have a JVC HD-ILA HD-61Z575. The color engine was replaced under warranty a few years ago. Recently, I started noticing some color artifacts in the picture... basically in a dark picture, you can notice red, green, or yellow stars randomly on the screen. If I turn the TV off and back on, they usually go away and don't come back until the set has been off for a while. I tried cleaning out the bulb area and that didn't affect the issue. I've also yet to have to replace the bulb in the tv,

Hi. Lately my tv is turning on but once the video signal is recognized, the screen goes green with vertical lines. Then the set turns off, turns back on, and then I may see a picture but the colors and images are all distorted. After about 5 min of off and on, it would finally correct itself. It does this with any input such as my xbox and dtv. Now it is at the point where it keeps trying to turn itself on and off to seemingly correct the input signal.
