Having problems with your Flat Panel Televisions ?

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.

The TV turns on and shows a picture that you can watch and within 10 minutes the TV loses its picture, however, the light is still green. If you turn the TV off you can get the picture to come back after you wait like 20 minutes or so but the TV will lose the picture again in 10 minutes or so. Any suggestions?

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.

I have a Sony Bravia KDL52W5100. When I turn on the tv sometimes everything is fine but other times there is no pic only rainbow stripes. I have to turn off and on the tv several times or unplug the tv to get a picture. I have tried rebooting the entire system it worked fine for couple of hours then the problem came back. Sometimes while I am watching a show the screen will gradually change into the rainbow stripe. Do I need to replace my screen and is it worth it?

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.
