Answers :

It could be that there isn't enough airflow, and you've overheated your TV and broken it. By letting it run, you may be reheating the circuits and letting the solder flow, temporarily fixing your problem

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. You need to turn the TV back off & then restart it to get both picture and sound. Sometimes you need to do this several times before the TV turns on, you hear a click, and then you get picture & sound. It seems like it is waiting for something to warm up? The problem is not the bulb (fairly new) or with the electrical outl

Hi just wondering if you can suggest a repair for my LG42PC1DV-AA. We have had the TV for 4 1/2 years. Last week when my daughter was watching it there was a loud crack and the screen went blank. After I let the TV cool down I turned it back on and the sound is good but the picture takes a few minutes to come onto the screen. It has a lot of Black lines I guess they are pixles that slowly dissapear and reveal a somewhat grainy and washed out picture. Is it worth getting looked at? Thanks Pete


The loud crack sound you heard may be due to a capacitor exploding, look for phisical damage and replace the component with and equal or better component of the same value,,,good luck ... LG 42PC1DV 42 in. EDTV-Ready Plasma Television

No sound at all on Mitsubishi LT-52151. Fixed before by unplugging, waiting 30 seconds, plugging back in.

Nothing getting the sound back this time.

After about 30 minutes of turning on my LG TV 32 there is a loud whip cracking like sound. The tv screen then normally turns pink but sometimes gets the picture back and the whip cracking sound keeps happening. It seems to me that there may be an overheating problem as it is okay when I leave it turned off for about an hour but it keeps on happening again. PLEASE HELP ME.

I have a ten year old 37" Sony XBR TV that works fine until you turn it off and then go to turn it back on. The picture does not come back, but sound does.

TV turns itself off after about 5 minutes (green light remains on). I can turn off the TV and turn it back on immediately, however, the TV turns itself back off after a few minutes. It started turning off itself off after displaying harizontal shock waves like lines on the screen that got progressively worst. Now there is no line, just powers off. Once turn back on shows great for about 5 minutes then clicks off (no picture or sound) with green light still on.

The picture will come on when you first turn it on but after 15 minutes or so it fades away. The sound still comes out but no picture. Sometimes it will come back on on its own after a while and then go out again. If you turn it back off for 15 minutes or so it usually comes back on. We already bought a new tv and that one works fine so its not the cable box but I would like to put the old tv in my room.
