Answers :

It may have bad 24vdc power supply, T-CON board, backlights inverter board.
\012Look for bad caps with domed tops, see example of failed 2 years old SAMSUNG due to bad caps; http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/Samsung%20LN32A330/

\012Try this first:
\012First, look at the screen in darkened room to see if you can see any slight glow from the screen, if it does, then the problem can be the T-CON (not getting the 12vdc) or the main logic board not feeding the signals to the T-CON board.
\012if not, next place to check will be the power supply module, make sure it has 24vdc which is required by the backlight inverter to work, the reason for not having 24vdc can be from bad DC filter caps (leaking/bulging top, high ESR) or short circuits in the inverter board which will cause the 24vdc supply to go into shutdown mode, so you may have to disconnect the power cable that feed the inverter board to see if the 24vdc will work without the inverter board hookup, you will need to apply about 3~4 amp of load to the 24vdc to make sure it can handle that. There are fuses on the backlight inverter boards also. So there is some troubleshooting you will have to do to find out the causes of the problem you are having.

We bought a new LG 32LD460 tv this morning. It switched on fine and we had it running with good picture and all. Then we left it for a while and came back to try and set up the xbox. It switched on with the xbox with the standard av cables but we realised we had an hdmi cable for the xbox. So we unplugged the others and then plugged the hdmi cable into the tv. Lo and behold the tv would not switch back on. We then unplugged the xbox and just kept the power cable of the tv plugged into the tv and

We have a Samsung LE32A457 T.V which is currently 2 years old. Whilst watching the t.v tonight all of a sudden a line across the centre of the screen appeared and from that line upwards the picture went faulty and it was unwatchable. We switched the t.v off and a white line appeared across the centre, we disconnected the scart lines from the back of the t.v and just left the ariel connection, this made no difference, any help or advice would be grateful.

I have a Sony Bravia kdl 32w5500 and it periodically switches itself off whilst watching programmes on one particular channel (WIN TV AUSTRALIA).

Philips 37PFL5603D/10 tv, connected to Humax HDR-Fox T2 recorder. We do not have the HD signal yet, but due in June this year.

After watching for about 10 to 20 minutes the tv does something weird like your'e pressing the input button. It keeps switching from tv to vidio or whatever else happens when you press the input button. When the screen keeps switching like that it just goes back and forth so your picture keeps coming on for a second and then back off. If you try to press the input button to fix it nothing happens. You just have to turn off your tv. It has its own dvd player on the bottom. I'm wondering if that

When switched back on the picture is there and all functions are okay but the screen is covered with a profusion of thin vertical and horizontal lines which obscure the picture. after waiting overnight the problem has not corrected itself.


What has happened is the LCD screen has broken. These do not take much pressure to break. This will never clear up on its own, the only solution is to replace the LCD or replace the set. Unfortunatly having the lcd replaced is almost as expensive as ... Dynex Flat Panel Televisions
