SOURCE: Losing signal intermittently every 1-5 minutes

This problem is probably due to weak signal strength from the cable to the television. Buy a signal amplifier for you cable line in and use another cable out of the amplifier output to your Television input signal source, This should bring up the signal strength for you.You could also have your cable company check the input signal strength to you house or apartment and see if the cable itself needs repairing or replacing.If this does not help with your problem , then you need to have your television tuners signal input circuit tested it may have weakened from age. This may be adjustable in the tuner box, but this is something for a service technician to determine. customer service number for Insignia is 1-877467-4289. Hope this helps you with your problem

Hi there, they problem is not in the input to the tv (dvd/cable etc) your powerboard/videoboard is overheating! Right away place a fan as close to the back of the tv as possible, this will help cool the circuits down and might considerably prolong the usefullness of the tv..The next step in it breaking down is total powerloss, or a blinking powerlight, eitherway this is your solution;The caps (capacitors) in the powerboard are going out. This is a very common problem in all class and price ranges of modern lcd and plasma tv's/ monitor's. I don't know if this problem has been like this for awhile or it just started, but either way, if the tv takes an abnormal amount of time to "warm" up then it most likely will go out all the way sometime in the (near) future. If you have a tiny bit of will and knowledge ypou can open the unit and get to the print board. Examine this for "popped" capacitors, they will have a buldging top instead of a flat one. Im gonna try to include a pic of them here, if i can get it this time, I've tried bfore lol. But you can google image a "popped" or "bad" capacitor and you would be able, with ease, to diagnose if you have any of these. Usually only one or two. Radioshack sells capacitors (couple anyway) for $1.59 each. MAKE SURE the replacement is of the SAME voltage or HIGHER, or you will be right back replacing those 2. Every capacitor has a negative pole marked with an (-) on the side of the capacitor(by one of the "legs", always puit the negative (-) "leg" of the new capacitor in the same hole in the printboard as where the previous negative (-) "leg" of the capacitor was ( a capacitor with the negative and positive "legs" put in backwards will result in the new piece "popping" as sson as you turn it on!!) make sure the "uf" rating (for example the most common popped capacitor is the 1000 uf) is the same as the one you are replacing. I needed 1000 uf, 105 c and 26v (volt) ratings for the 1 capacitor I needed to replace to fix my LG 19" lcd panel monitor I found by the trash that the light came on off, but it didn't come on. I replaced that capacitor with ; 1000uf, 85 c and 36 v (volts0...It works fine eventhough the volts and the temperature rating (36v and 85c) was not the same as the (26v(volt) and 105c ) capacitor I removed !! Further, I've replaced capacitors that had the celcius rating of 105 with the only ones Radioshack had, namely 85 c(celsius) they have been working great, but I'm not sure about any effect, nor have I heard or read (yet?) about that making an urgent difference. Many threads that I've read people have done the same, so we should be ok (my stuff has been running good for a while longer then most brand new ones!.............(all these ratings ; 'uf ' and 'c' etc are on the side of the capacitor you are replacing and on the side of the ones you are replacing them with)...For all this all you need is the cheapest solder gun u can find (I bought one for $7.99 at Radioshack), a camera (to take pictures as you go to remember how to reassemble the unit) and, once you have your materials, 20 minutes to replace 2 or 3 capacitors and you are good to go...Most monitors and tvs (lcd/plasma) I've seen you have to lay flat on the ground/bed/blanket etc, to work on (screen side down). Usually there are 2 or 3 screws (or a few more) to remove, then you will have to carefully (its comes off easily most times)insert a flat screwdriver inbetween the casing and gently pry it up as you go around the whole frame. Sometimes you have to remove the little washer arouind the cable input orso, just be gentle and you cant go wrong. Once insidet here will be a box with wires running to the sides etc...unplug, gently, these wires and open the box. Inside you will find 2 or 3 circuitboards, check them all for "popped" capacitors, replace, reassemble and plug it in....Have fun becoming an overnight tv mechanic lol! If this helped (or not )please rate, thank you!d4195d7.jpg

SOURCE: I have an Olevia 237-t12 hdtv, I will lose the

I had the same problem with the exact same TV. I took it to a local TV shop. My problem was fixed by replacing the T-Con controller board. The cost of the part was about $85 and labor $125. There are no "new" parts out there for Olevias because the company is out of business but I did find a part pulled from a "damaged in transit" TV. It's a personal decision (assuming the parts can be found) as to if its cost effective to repair the TV.

Tv loses picture and sound intermittently for about a second


check that your aerial is in good condition and is properly installed, if you do not have a signal amplifier try fiting one, it may make a difference.
It may be that you are experiencing RF interference from a radio source, something transmitting on the frequency that your signals come in at.
I have the same problem with buses communication with thier controllers at stations, keeps cutting out my signal....A good aerial solved it

How do I repair our Samsung LCD Television? I would really appreciate an answer ASAP. Where will my answer appear for my review.


Don't know what service provider you have, free to air, satellite, cable or what? Try feeding the TV another signal and see what it does. Play recorder movie from DVD, or if you have a VCR around even try that. If it plays the DVD etc, with no issues, then TV is not the problem, most likely the cable box, satellite box etc, could be as simple as a bad cable connection at the house, a splitter or street box. Eliminate all the simple things first, then look at the TV.

Sony KDF-E60a20 loses signal


I had the same problem. The TV would work for about 2 minutes, then lose audio and video for about 45 seconds, then come back on. This was a constant loop. The power LED would stay lit constant though. I considered changing the lamp as other blogs suggested. Then I thought the problem may be simpler. I removed the lamp, and to my surprise, the lamp screen was full of dust. $5 bottle of canned air, cleaned all the dust from the inside of the TV (including the lamp screen), and low and behold the TV worked great. The lamp did have a burned smell to it, but it still worked great. I would suggest trying this first. Save yourself alot of money:)
