Having problems with your Flat Panel Televisions ?

Vizio VT470M no picture, no sound, no backlight. Power supply board looks good all voltages appear correct (24V, 5V, and 3.7V) and no "bulged" capacitors . When I unplug unit for two hours, the screen comes on normally backlight comes back up and picture is normal, but changing the channel causes it to go dead again. Bringing up menu with remote is really sluggish and when attempting factory reset, it goes black. Vizio light on the front of the TV comes on and off when pressing power button,



Answers :

Im having similar problem and with my limited knowledge of lcd tvs and the voltages ALL being good except the pwr on or sw on voltage from the main board to the power supply which tells it to switch everything on Im guessing that something is going wrong on the main board. In the condition where it freezes it (the power on V) which switches everything on i get varied voltages such as 2.5 or 3 or (the normal 5v) and then when nothing powers up (blank screen) i read 0v on pwr on voltage but all my other voltages are corect (24v to inverter, 12 v to main board, 5v, etc.) Im guessing from researching this is that there is in improper voltage somewhere in the main board circuit. I have been unable to find it so i may order another board and post back.
The main board is the usual suspect with that model and symptom. Replacing the main board should solve the issue. You should be able to get one from www.tvcircuitboards.com just hit the contact us button from the website if you dont see it listed as they only list the more popular boards but they have alot that arent listed.

Recently acquired a Fisher PC203 television. Connected to cable and chose CATV. Great picture but cannot get tv past channel 40. Do not see a menu button to add or delete channels. Did not come with remote. What am I missing?


If I remember correctly, this is an older model set (late 1980, early 1990 I think). Many cable systems of that era didn't offer the large number of channels they do now, and the cable tuning of many sets was very limited. Most cable companies requir ... Fisher Standard (CRT) Televisions

I have an LG 42PG60UD. I am unable to access the menu on this set which I have had since new. If you press the menu button on the remote or the bottom of the set, the menu bar comes up on the screen.

Hello, so, this is the situation: I have lost my TV manual and I want to set the TV picture format to 16:9 for permanent, or even better, set it to "automatic". I have the Sony RM-833 remote control for the Sony KV-X2101D Trinitron television. So far, I have managed to change the picture format to 16:9, but it changes back to "Normal" (4:3 format I suppose) every time I switch channel. So, how can I memorize this16:9 format as permanent? Or even make the picture format change automaticall
