Question about Sony KV-32S65 32" TV

TV screen comes in and out when first turned on.

The screen is coming on and off more during viewing. I does this for at least the first 10 to 15 minutes when you first turn the set on. Thanks, Todd Morgan

    Hi, the video is going in and out sound is there. Is this something I may be able to fix? Is there some diagram I can get to show where the problem is? If so will it be fairly evident on how to make the fix? I really appreciate your time and input on this issue.

Is the video going in and out or is the whole set with the sound going off as well. If the sound stays its a cold solder connection on the vert output device or the B+ line feeding the ic or if the whole set is going on or off its a cold solder connection on the Horizontal driver transformer. Without more info its hard to tell.

    I wish there was a book or manual that would point ya to a fix!! That would be great. Even with 1000s of dollars in fancy test equipment your still gonna need to know how to read a schematic diagram and that my friend is a cuirut blueprint and where it all conncts. Even with a diagram its not going to point you in the right direction as you the tech have to do certain diagnostic steps to localize a fault and then finally to the defective part or parts.. Sorry i couldnt help ya more.

Go to your Menu options, and look around for a RESET option. You want to basically do a factory reset on your TV. (I'm assuming you turned off the setting, the system confirmed it, but it never turned off?)

One of the things an HDMI connection does is allow the TV and equipment to talk back and forth to each other. When you turn the TV off it ends this connection but when you turn it back on, it doesn't communicate correctly. The analog inputs don't do this that's why when you change inputs and go back to HDMI it works, because the TV reestablishes that connection. You didn't list the model of the TV but go to "" and click download. Enter the TV you have and click "GO". A list of downloads comes up and your TV may have a firmware update for it. There is instructions on how to do it. Even if this doesn't fix this problem, it is still good to do to avoid other problems. Another solution is to use component (Red/Blue/Green) cables. The highest resolution they support is 1080i, HDMI is 1080p. Depending on the model of your TV and what your watching though, you might not see a difference. TV2 will never have this problem because it is not connected through HDMI.

I just bought the HD50LPW42 from someone he said it needs a color wheel. When I turn the TV on the green light comes on but I don't get any picture. What is a color wheel and is it needed to just watch the...

Most DLP TVs have a color wheel. This allows the TV to be manufactured with a single chip to control the color for each spot on the screen and a white light source. As the wheel rotates, the desired color light gets transmitted to the screen. This happens so fast that most people do not see the screen refreshing each color.

Here is one source for a color wheel for your TV: . This is a part reclaimed from a TV that was damaged in shipping so it was only used during factory testing. The part number is RCA 212184.

Usually the symptom of a failing color wheel is the TV being very noisy on startup (a whining sound) followed by it shutting down. Although other problems can be involved - for example a power problem going into the assembly with the wheel (there is a motor that turns the wheel).

I hope this helps.

TV has gone into "protect mode" to do just that to protect against the damaging failure that has been detected, you will need a servicer to diagnose the failure. Good luck and Merry Christmas!

Phillps tv problem

42" Plasma Flat screen TV - recently problem started with a solid black background over top half of screen during viewing (comes & goes). A few days ago, when TV was turned on, green light came on then changed to flashing red light in 4 signal flashing pattern, but no audio or video. Phoned Philps Cust Serv and was told to download system upgrade on USB but it did not work. Philips referred us to Service Repairs who charged $85 for coming to home and without even opening the TV, said it will cost approx $1000 for "boards" plus his service, and he could not guarantee the TV would work.

Screen tuns black after 15 seconds and comes back after about 15 minuts

The solder joints on the vertical output IC have cracked. This is a very common problem on those sets.
