    I am having the very same problem. I watched earlier in the day just fine ame back about two hours later I powered it on got the memorex splash screen then just darkness. I left it unplugged overnight to try to reset it and that did not work either. It was nine days over the return date from target so they would not take it back so I called Memorex support. The answer I recieved was just I excpected, send it back to them at my expence and include money for them return it as well. This really stinks for a TV that is only three months old.

  • lperla Nov 04, 2008

    The TV has the sound but not the picture

  • madben Nov 07, 2008

    This just happened to my Memorex MLTD3222 also. I got it 9/10/08 it is now 11/07/08. Less than two months!?!!! Ridiculous. This must me a manufacturer defect if we are all having the same problem: Power on, memorex logo appears on screen for maybe 1 second, then sound comes on, but no picture. I am extremely irritated.

  • stlblondgal Nov 25, 2008

    I have the exact same problem with this model. I turn on the TV and the Memorex screen flashes for a split-second then nothing. No sound. No picture. Nothing. I purchased this TV from Target in May 2008. It should not cost me anything to have my TV repaired after only 6 months! This is absolutely ridiculous!

  • emustang04 Nov 27, 2008

    I have THE SAME PROBLEM!!!!, this is ****. I bought mine about a month ago. was watching it last night, turned it off, went to sleep, woke up, turned it on and got the memorex logo for a second and no picture but sound. Im gonna try to bring it back to target. Im gonna be really upset if they tell me I cant.. We shouldnt have to pay $500 for a months worth of tv

  • thomjw Dec 12, 2008

    Same problem here. Bought it at Target. No resolution yet -- Memorex "Warranty Support" department is total ****. Absolutely useless and they won't call or email back with the information on where to send it/what to do. We're going to try Target again.

  • jayday83 Dec 13, 2008

    I have the same problem and I've had mine for about 3 months. Luckily I bought the extended warranty from target, I hope they do something for me or I'll be really ******* off.

  • xbleednomore Dec 18, 2008

    I have this same problem i have had this tv for less than 3 months as well. Has anyone had it fixed or know what it is going to cost to get it fixed?

  • John Madden Jan 18, 2009

    Yes.I have this problem as well. I see the memorex name flash on
    andthen no picture. What are we supposed to do ? I have the TV for
    5months.

  • Anonymous Jan 31, 2009

    I have this same problem... Memorex logo flashes when TV is turned on, then the screen goes blank but the sound still works. I have had my set 7 months.

  • jruud Mar 17, 2009

    I had the same problem and I sent it back to Memorex. After being with out the set for 8 weeks they sent me another brand new tv back. It worked for exactly one day and then had the same problem sound no video. I called them again and said thanks for sending me another radio but I spent $500.00 on a TV not a radio. They sent me a pre-paid shipping label and after 5 weeks they are going to refund my money. To bad the MLTD3222 tv had a great picture when it worked. I will find another tv to buy but I will research the model better next time.

  • pednurserb Mar 17, 2009

    Same problem after having for only 1 month. Did the plug trick noted above and it worked. Memorex Customer Service were no help, so found this web site and started reading. Bad thing is I have no receipt for mine to return it since it was a house warming gift from a family member who lives in another state. I say DON'T purchase this TV Model.

  • Anonymous May 11, 2009

    I am so glad to see this site, I have been dealing with Memorex since 11/2008 after having spent money trying to have it repaired locally, I have shipped it back twice, they would do something and it would work one or two days and then the same thing, grat picture, then it would go off but the sound was still on, I sent the Tv back 3/30/2009 at their expense, I am told it has gone to a Dale Hopkins to issue me a refund, that was a month ago, I finally got a number for him at 954-660-7028,as the parts are covered for one year, has anyone reported this to the BBB or have you actually gotten a replacement TV or refund, If i ever get a refund what Tv has worked good for you guys??

We ended up complaining up the ladder to the corporate office and managed to get a new TV (same model) shipped to us for free. We were asked to ship the old TV back to Memorex, which was done on their dime as well.

Memorex knows this model TV has this exact problem. They told us that a particular part is bad and can only be replaced for a true fix.

The best advice is to just call the Memorex call center and complain. Don't accept "no" for an answer and do not give up. They will give you the number for a customer relations manager in the corporate office. Make sure you're nice to everyone -- you always catch more flies with sugar, after all -- but be firm about what you want.

I don't have a permanent fix, but I do have a work around:

The problem appears to be some sort of "loose connection" associated with either the power plug or how the back of the TV is mounted to the front. Try the power plug first: we unplugged/plugged the plug from the back of the TV (i.e. not the wall) multiple times, jiggling it around a bit each time we plugged it in, and did so until we didn't hear the "pop/click" (i.e. the sound we've come to associate with the problem)... Voila! It started working again.

If that doesn't work, try removing all the screws from the entire back panel, moving the back panel up/off a bit (but completely removing, and being careful not to disturb any of the connections to the DVD player, etc.), and then do the unplug/plug thing. We're guessing that moving the back panel around is essentially facilitating the unplug/plug thing.

Our repairman discovered this when he tried to fix it the first time. He removed the back panel but then the TV immediately started working, so he couldn't determine what the actual problem was. He gave it back to us, and it worked for a few months and then the problem came back. We did the panel/unplug/plug thing and it started working again.

Hope this helps!!

  • thomjw Jan 25, 2009

    By the way, I meant to say "NOT completely removing" . We didn't have to take the panel entirely off.

Yeah same problem, they said they don't fix their own tv's. It spent 3 weeks in our local repair shop and finally he told me that I bought a pieace of junk. He said memorex doesn't even make their own tv's. Probaly why they don't fix their own tv's. The local repair shop couldn't find the parts anywhere and said the tv is out of date. Then he said next time buy a real tv from a real company. Guess I'm screwed!!!!!

How to reset the lamp timer for Panasonic DLP TVs.


When you replace the lamp on a Panasonic DLP or LCD TV you will need to reset the lamp timer to zero for the TV to reset the lamp timer and extinguish the change lamp indicator.

There are two methods used depending on which model TV you have. The older units use the first method and newer units use the second method. You can tell which method you need to use by whether you have a PIP and/or SPLIT button on your remote. If you have them use the first method, if you don't use the second method.

Method number 1 (for older units):

Follow the procedure below. You use either PIP or SPLIT button depending on whether your remote has SPLIT or not. Some do not.

Perform lamp timer reset only when the lamp has been replaced. The idea is to know when to replace the lamp before the end of it's life when it could explode or short out causing a hazadous condition. If you reset the lamp circuit at any other time the replace lamp warning will not come on at the recommended interval.

Be sure the power cord is plugged into a properly grounded wall outlet.
Then, press the POWER button on the projection display or the remote control to turn the unit on.

While pressing the VOL- button on the projection display, hold down the
PIP or SPLIT button on the remote control at same time for more than 5 seconds.

If your remote does not have a split button you use PIP, if it has a split button, you would use SPLIT.

When reset procedure is complete, the screen on the TV will indicate that the lamp has been reset. When lamp time reset is finished, the LAMP indicator goes out.

Method number 2 (for newer units):

Press volume down on the TV and the zero button on the remote at the same time for longer than 5 seconds and it will reset the lamp to zero.

These procedures should reset your lamp timer and you will be good until the current lamp fails or the change lamp indicator illuminates again signalling that it is time to replace the lamp. Three to six years on average depending on how much you run the unit per day. Do not ignore the indicator. Change the lamp immediately to avoid further damage and expense or worse.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating.

I cant get it to work on full screen


I am having this same problem as this one above (62HM95). The issue I'm having is that it will also not work full screen. I selected the 'Split' option on the remote and the picture on the left is fine... absolutely clean and perfect, with audio. The picture on the right is completely distorted in very strange colors (mostly constant variations of purple), with audio as well. You should note, that the same video information was feed into different imputes to select for the split. In other words, I feed the cable stream into the TV using the component video (Y B R) as well as the coaxial cable and selected both options for the purposes of displaying the same information side-by-side. On screen I selected video option four (4 for color stream HD) and option (0 for cable/antenna). If I highlight either side and select one of them (4 or 0) the screen goes full screen and I see nothing but one solid color of purple. I've researched the purple and they call it 'Electric Purple'. That is all I see... just the solid purple, with the audio. What I have also noticed is that, If toggle between imputes while in the full screen option and come back to either option (4 or 0) the image plays/appears OK for about 2 seconds then goes back to solid purple. I just can't understand why this is happening especially when the on-screen menu displays perfectly fine. I cannot enjoy this TV by only watching half of it in split mode. Besides the multiple replacement bulbs I've had to buy I've completely had it with this TV
