Hello.. Since the problem ocurred after a lightning storm then there is a good chance that your dvd player experienced a power surge from the power line and may be seriously damaged. Try unplugging the unit fromn the wall plug and let it staythat way for 10-20 minutes then plug it in again.. if it continues to malfunction then it is probably junk.. The power down/power up reset sometimes clears malfunctions like this but not always... and especially not if a component inside it is damaged.. Good Luck..

Screen went black. Shut t.v. off and tried to turn it back on. Power comes on, front light is green, and in about 3 seconds the t.v. shuts off, green light goes off. Was playing dvd at the time. Shut off...


MOST OF THESE SETS HAVE A SELF DIAGNOSTIC:

UNPLUG TV AND THEN PLUG BACK IN---TURN ON---GREEN POWER LIGHT COMES ONFOR A MOMENT AND GOES OFF.

PRESS AND HOLD "device" and "menu"buttons on front of tv for at least 5 seconds and then release both together.


Watch for power light to blink in a sequence:

1 blink-then 2 blinks-------no error

2 blink-then 1 blink-------X-ray protection

2 blink-then 2 blink-------SHORT PROTECTION*******

2 blink-then 3 blink---------deflection circuit problem

2 blink-then 4 blink---------vertical circuit problem


******2, then 2 is most common---usually means one of the fuses that protectthe Convergence IC or IC's is blown---set will detect no voltage to convergenceIC and shut down.


SET WILL REPEAT BLINK ERROR CODE UP TO 5 TIMES ANDTHEN TO GET IT TO REPEAT MORE YOUHAVE TO UNPLUG SET AND TRY TO TURN ON AGAIN.


IF IT IS 2 AND THEN 2---USUALLY
CONVERGENCE CIRCUIT PROBLEM

let me know what you find--hope that you find 2 blinks, a pause and twoblinks--this is the most common and easiest to fix. SD TECH

Unplug the power cord, but leave it unplugged for 4 hours. This is called a hard reset.

If the hard reset does not alleviate the problem then the protection circuit has been activated. This is caused when one of the many sections of the tv develops a short circuit and is detected by the protection circuit which in turn shuts the set off to avoid further damage to the set which in your case is from the Dvd connection.

You will need to call in a service tech or test the various sections and find the actual shorted circuit.

The cause can be any of many possibilities. But it is almost always over $200 to get it repaired.

Since it is a nice set, you should definitely invest in fixing it whether you do it yourself or not depends on your expertise with tvs. If you still have the extended warranty it should be covered free of charge.

Let me know if you have further questions and I would be glad to help you.

Thank you for using Fixya and Good Luck on fixing this.

I recently purchased a KDL-40W5100 LCD Digital Color TV. I gives a great picture, but when I turn on my Panasonic DVD connected to it I get a blue snowy picture (it worked fine on the old TV)Can you help?


Hi,
This may be due to a setting on the dvd player itself. What kind of tv did you have previously? Also what kind of connection are you using to hook up the dvd player to the tv? Lastly, if you have the model number for the dvd player it will help if/when you need further assistance.
Thank you,
Lee

ok lets try this hit the power button on the DVD player some go into stand by mode and when power is interrupted you have to push the button manually also reset the surge protector next get a lamp that you know works and unplug the tv and plug the lamp into the socket where the TV was plugged into turn on the lamp, does it turn on? yes then something wrong with TV again may have been in stand by mode plug back in and try pushing the power switch on make sure the TV if it has a remote is on the right im put to get a picture say like a satellite or cable or DVD player. hope this helps.

Usb port


The USB port is for updates, I am not sure how to update the television? However it is my understanding that it doesn't read MP3 or other media players, However there are several DVD players that read media devices.

I am French and live in US I bought here a TV SAMSUNG Series 6 - 650- I also bought a DVD player able to read any DVD but for DVD zone 2, it's in black and white What may I have to do on TV to read DVD...


Hi,

Offhand in all probability and since the Samsung was bought in the US, it uses the NTSC color system. Even if the player is capable of multi regions including PAL/SECAM (Europe/region 2), the TV is not capable of displaying the other color system. Sorry, a multi system TV is also required.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

I don't think your problem had anything to do with the storm!!
I had problem with my Mitsubishi ws-55809 I was getting bowing color bands. It was an intermittent problem. I pulled out the video board out of the set. Not to bad of job just make notes on connections. I soldered the video driver. It was big and had many connections. Most where loose. My set has worked for about 5 months without any problems.
