Having problems with your Flat Panel Televisions ?

As I am watching TV, after an hour or so, I start getting horizontal static running across the screen....within minutes if gets worse, i turn off the tv, wait awhile and turn it back on and it's ok......sometime it will be ok for several hours, other times much less



Answers :

It seems that it may be over heating. If you are knowledgeable about these things you can take it apart and dust out the insides. That may help. Otherwise one of the system boards are failing. Then you would need to take it to a TV tech to have it tested to figure out exactly which board is failing and have it replaced.

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.

Our Toshiba 42HL196 TV refuses to turn on. The red LED light at the bottom flashes three times repeatedly. In the operating guide it says this means the TV is rebooting, and to wait a few seconds for it to come up. It's been like this for several hours. We've tried unplugging the TV, waiting a while, and plugging it back in, but the LED just goes back to blinking. Is there anything else to try?

50hm66 There is a new bulb in the TV, and it is working. However, it takes several tries to light the lamp before it will start up. If, after I turn the unit off, and come back to it in a couple hours, it will not start at all, and I just keep getting the yellow blinking light over and over, as it tries to start up.

I am presently working on a Samsung HLN437W. The unit will turn on and all controls on the set or remote work, after a short while all the controls freeze up and do not work.

My Philips 32PFL5604H TV has had a sound problem for a while. It originally occurred when I the TV was turned off for less than an hour then turned back on the sound would not work. If left for over an hour and then turned back on it would work fine. The problem seems to be happening more frequently now and rarely does the sound come back on. Can it be fixed or is it time for the bin.
