    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.

    The TV has the sound but not the picture

    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.

    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??

  • diegohosmo May 13, 2009

    I got the same problem with my TV, the scren goes dark after turn on and speakers still working. I am gonna try with professional assitance because memorex didn`t answer nothing.

  • alleypops May 18, 2009

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!!

    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 do an update on memorex lcd mlt 3222

If you mean a firmware update to the MLTD3222, there is no way for a user to update this TV with built-in DVD player. The manufacturer doesn't provide updates and has no way to access them from a DVD, USB flash drive or SD card. (The manual for the related MLTD2622 is available from Memorex support: . )

I wish that I had better news for you.

I turned on my tv and the memorex logo comes on the screen then it goes dark then the pictere comes in for 2 seconds then the screen goes black again. I have sound but no picture. I can't even bring up the...

LCD sets (other than those very new) use fluorescent back lighting to produce the picture. Those lights require high voltage to ionize them so the problem could be either the tubes themselves or the inverter that produces the high voltage is failing. Anyone with some degree of manual finesse and possessed of logic can cure this problem but it may be difficult to identify the failed part accurately meaning that if you 'shotgun' the problem, you would need to replace both the tube(s) and the inverter board. The latter is in most sets as a separate assembly which derives its operating voltage from the main power supply and will be obviously attached to the fluorescent tube(s).
The board will have to found from the manufacturer or a company that disassembles scrapped sets.
Check with the site below for availability:
Jimmy's Parts
Search on your set's model number and the term 'inverter.'
The tube(s) can be bought from several US suppliers.

Can not access menu or input functions

Hi rduncan27,
I will be happy to help. 88% of LCD tv problems are with the backlight, the symptoms you described indicate a probable inverter malfunction. Lets do a simple test to check the functionality.
  1. Get the tv to a point that it is producing sound.
  2. Take a flashlight and shine it on the screen.
  3. Look very closely for a dark video image.
Let me know your findings and we can proceed from there.

MLTD3222 has sound but no picture

I have one of these in my shop with same problem. Unit has sound but no backlights due to the powersupply/inverter board ( top board in metal box. The lights come on for a second and go out. Problem was originally intermittent. You can order this board from Fox Intl Part but will take a minimum of 12 weeks. Look at the lower right corner of this board and locate the dip switch of 4 positions. the bottom one is labeled " normal & burn " Try moving it to "burn" My set is in the burn position and has been running for 2 days now OK
