Re: sound

Sounds like you have a bad ground or cracked board or even several cold solser connections on or around your microprocessor IC. Could even be a bunch of cold connection , some around the sound output ic But my feelings are they are all around the Micro. Your gonna need to be goo with a soldering iron and a plasit pick tool to find the area ao if you have no experience in electronic troubleshooting i would take the set into a pro. Good Luck

I can not get my rca remote to work on my Sanyo model DS20425

If you don't have the code, you could do a code search and when you hit the code search button on the remote, continually hit the power button until your tv turns off. Then save it, but it may take awhile. You may have to hit the power off a 100 times or more if you don't have the code.

There is a rectangle shaped box at the bottom of my screen. I thought it could be because I hit the pip button on the remote, but when I hit the pip button it only goes away for a second and then comes...

Make sure your closed-captioning is turned off. You probably have captions set for "text" mode now. It's easy to do this because on most remote controls there is a single button for caption settings, and you can hit the button without realizing it. Once you turn off the captions the box should be gone.

Looses video

There are so many thing that can cause this to happen. If you answer some questions we can narrow it down some. 1) when the picture goes black if you hit the menu button on the mitsubishi remote or on the front of the tv itself does the menu show up? 2) After it goes dark how do you get it back? do you turn it off and let it sit for awhile or can you turn it off and then right back on to get a picture? 3) what is the model number? this can be found on the back of the set. If you can answer these questions we can go forward.

It takes 5 to 7 minutes to turn on my Magnavox HD TV

IFyou feel confident and can locate switch mode power supply with back removed.
Try warming switchmode power supply before turning TV on.
If TV turns on normaly then there are some small capcitors that are a common cause of this fault.
Otherwise look for DRY or CRACKED solder jointson PCB
BUT DON'T do any of the above if your are not confident send it to a TV repaiman.

Green blinking power button

Sounds like an internal fuse or a power supply problem. It is worth it (I don't normally say this) to get this set fixed.

Sound goes off after 5 minutes

hi there, yes it can be fixed, hitting the unit means that you have a cold solder on the board. the sound is in the amplifier section, check some connection at the speakers and amplifier, a cleanning and a reheat of cold solder to the baord is required. ty

TV Turns off on its own

Just keep smack'in it around, it works for me. It is the 'protection overload circuit' taking over and shutting the TV set off. This is because it detected a short or near-short circuit somewhere. Most common is high voltage, deflection amplifiers and main power supply. It's pretty much a common fix for an experienced tv repairman. It might set me back in the ballpark of $200 - $300.
