It has always been plugged into surge protectors and I have tried a new one, same problem. Also plugged a different TV into the same plug and no problems. I have had this TV for about 3 years now and this just started happening. Thanks for your help i



Answers :

Try plugging vaccum or what ever you are using into a different plug that is not on the same circuit and see if it still does it. I had a heater and microwave plug into same circuit and it would blow the circuit. I had to find another circuit. Remember your TV take a lot of power to run so if you have multiple things plugged in the same circuit and I am guessing the breakers are only 15 amp one of them has to give. Your tv might have a built in surge protector and that is what is happening.
Your TV should not be sharing a circuit with any of the devices you mention. The problem is not surges, it's current drain. Apparently your TV is sensitive to voltage drops

I just purchased a Vizio e420vl. When i first plugged it into my surge protector, it worked fine, for about 20 minutes. Then it lost power completely. I went and bought a new surge protector, one made for home theater set-ups, and the same thing happened. When plugged straight into the wall outlet, it works fine. How can i resolve this and still have surge protection?

No picture I replaced the lamp and it worked for 3 months then I lost picture. Pulled it out and saw nothing wrong with it but when I put an ohm meter to the bulb it was an open circuit. I ordered a new one and it lasted 2 hours with the element exploding. Is there something wrong with the TV or are the bulbs junk? They are not from Mitsubishi and the bulbs are not Osram. I have had the TV since 2006 with no other problems. The TV is protected with a Monster surge protector. Any help would be gr

When power supply to TV exceeds 224V the TV switch off. It then tries to switch "on" again and will do so until the power supply to TV is lower than 224V. I ran a AC DC regulater to keep power output to TV as close to 220V. Then TV plays perfect. Aventually I unplug TV and go to bed. I have tried UPS's as well. Same problem. I think power supply unit in TV is damaged due to power surges. I replaced this 2 year old TV with a new one. Costly excercise. I still belive this TV can be fixed.

My TV has hundreds of little white speckles showing up on the screen, kind of like white noise. They aren't staying in one place just flashing all over the screen. A green bar flashes as well every so often. I took the problem to a local TV specialist retailer and they said that it could be a power surge, and that I might need to purchase a Surge protector that filters out the problem. Any idea on what this could be?

We have a RCA TV, it's pretty old, made in 1994.. it will not come on, we tried unplugging and plugging back, but nothing.. when you plug it in you hear a arcing sound from the cord.. do you think it can be fixed, or is it time for a new one??


The arcing sound usually does not come from the cord. If the LED is not coming on I would suspect the main 6A fuse on the power supply board that is located right next to the point where the cord plugs in. ... RCA Flat Panel Televisions

I plugged this TV into a new cable box (digital signal, not HD), and the picture now does not fill the screen. Previously, I had another TV (different brand, same tyoe and age) plugged into the same cable box, and never had a problem. Is there a way a) to adjust the picture to fill the screen without using the zoom feature, or b) if not, is there a way to make the zoom feature permanent so I don't have to activate it every time I turn on the TV?
