Question about ViewSonic N3251w 32 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

Screen Goes Black After About an Hour

I have had my tv for three years now and the tv works just fine up until an hour after use. The picture on the screen will go out, leaving absolutely no picture, however the power light will stay on and remains green. The sound will also go out and if I turn it on again, this problem occurs within minutes. However when I leave it off for a while, it works just fine when I turn it on again, but when an hour is up, I have the same problem again. Does anyone know what the problem might be and how I might be able to fix it?

    I have a bit of the same problem, except mine turns everything off. Not just the picture but the whole TV.

Check the power board inside the TV, possible bad capacitors. I just had them replaced on mine.

The controller board for the screen is going bad. check shopjimmy.com for replacement parts. It's not a difficult job to do. Once the back of the TV is removed, you'll see it near the center of the screen.

Our lcd phillips tv screen turns completely white after about an hour of use


The TV, most probably, the display circuit or the display itself has developed dry solder/components leaking and the TV needs attention by a qualified service technician.

JVC LT47 that picture goes black (sound fine) after being on for awhile. Can turn TV off, then back on & it's fine. But then happens again about ever hour or so.


Hello
Hello
It is due to some loose soldering points [dry soldering we say it technically], in the power supply section of the TV. Just check for it. Check the solderings of all components, that will heat up to an extent when the TV works on. Repeated heating and cooling may make solderings to the terminals of that components to get loose. Just resolder all the suspected solder terminals, by applying a little more solder, without making any solder bridge short in between adjecent solder terminals. This must solve the problem to your tV. OK.
