Having problems with your Flat Panel Televisions ?

When I turned on TV after about 1 week of not using it, it took a long time to start up. Then, I noticed a flickering in the picture. I checked all the Picture settings and noticed that I must turn Backlight all the way off or on lowest setting 1 to stop the flickering. The higher the Backlight setting, the faster the flickering becomes. However, the picture is too dark on Backlight Off or 1 and increasing Brightness to 100 does not solve the problem.

I have an ELCHS321. My backlight started to flicker. The inverter board is JLS-05-32EI. I have the back open and noticed that the LED on the inverter board was blue and flickering as well. As the set warms up the LED turns white but still flickers. The LED goes solid white and the flickering stops. Is this caused by the inverter board or or the backlight. Is there anyway to load the inverter board output to isolate th problem.


I would suspect and check first the voltages going there to see if low when cold and come up and if they are moving up and down when it flickers----points to problem in power supply ... Element ELC-HS321 32 in. LCD TV

I have purchased an HX46800 after using an XBR40 full HD for 3 years. The picture on the new set doesn't seem as sharp as the older LCD set except when the source is 1080. It is very unforgiving for even 576 picture source and the picture becomes less than sharp, especailly on long shots - sometimes looking almost blurry. The older set seemed to accomodate most HD sources with a sharper picture. Is this common or do I have a dud? tks Mike Goss

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,

I have a Samsung LN40A550P3FXZA that is giving me problems. When I first started noticing problems I would turn the TV on and I would hear the power-up sound, the backlight would come on and then the red LED would flash a few times then the backlight would go off and it would repeat (power-up sound---backlight on---LED flash---backlight off). It would do this several times. Sometimes I would be able to get picture if I hit the source button on the side of the TV when the backlight first came

Our tv is about 3 years old. We are a Time Warner cable customer. About 2 months ago we started to notice that the picture took a ong time to appear after turning on the set. The sound played for about 5 minutes before a picture appeared. Now the sound and picture are both gone--not sure if tv,s are repaired or thrown away these days as everything is designed to require quick replacement.


I'm sure this is fairly easy to repair. It sounds likely to be a power supply problem, possibly due to bad capacitors. Your original symptoms of no picture were likely to be the backlight controller not having sufficient power to operate correctly. I ... LG 32LC7D Television

42pfl3704d/f7 The TV has a white line that goes vertically on the left side of the screen. The picture also flickers. It will flicker more if I shake the tv. When I am going through the menu the previous words will fade out. What I mean is if I switch from one menu to the next the word will take a few seconds to fade out so it looks like there is two sets of words overlapping each other.

I have an LCD Television set Model number LNS3238DX and the picture quality seems to be grainy and poor. When the menu button is pushed, that picture of the menu screen comes in just fine. I noticed that one of the capcitors was bubbled up, so I replaced all of the capacitors on the power supply, but it didn't solve the problem. So I am now wondering if the STP03 is defective and maybe I should change that out because everything in the power supply seems to be running just fine. Please let me kn
