SOUNDS LIKE YOU HAVE A BAD LCD PANEL. THE LAMP DETECTION CIRCUIT IS SEEING A BAD LAMP OR DRIVE TRANSFORMER AND IS SENDING A SIGNAL TO SHUT THE PANEL OFF. NOT WORTH MESSING WITH PANEL WOULD HAVE TO BE REPLACED

I am afraid it sounds as though either your backlight or power inverter has gone faulty, may be worth contacting alba to see if they will honour the warrenty (unlikely but worth a go) otherwise maybe try your home insurance to see if its covered, failing either of these options, if you feel confident doing so, disassemble the tv and look for any signs of visible damage (capacitors leaking or any components looking burned or scorche, and replace. Try looking for any panel markings which will allow you to search for a price to replace the whole unit.
Unfortunately I cant give you and hard and fast cure, and it is very difficult to tell whether it is the inverter or the backlight has gone (having said that, if you are getting picture at the very beginning, it may suggest that the inverter is getting the power to the backlight ok, which may suggest its the backlight at fault.)
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: i turn my alba lcd32880hdf

This is a common fault as the set on ageing deteriorates in the connections. There is a high possibility that the components over a period of heating and cooling, tend to bring on a problem of dry soldering. So my advice is to check the set for some loose joints that have played on to give you these erratic shut downs or poor performance.

The best way to check for loose connections is to tap lightly when the set is powered on , If there is change while tapping then it seems that there are DRY solder joints. Remove main plug, the covers - with caution of high voltage, check for dry joints, use a good soldering iron to solder all suspected points.

Sometimes the fault occurs when the set warms up, if so you can simulate the heat using a hair dryer on the suspected areas, try with the power supply, distribution, Processor controller, driver controllers on the A/V related sections. Also the use a FREEZE-IT spray can simulate the components to cool and show up the fault.

Based on the above method you must be able to locate the area of fault and solder the sections. Sometimes large IC's- ones with more pins- tend to have drying in some pins and so cause faults related to the IC's protocol. Have a rough idea of looking into the areas to reduce the time of probing.

Check for tips to look into the SMPS unit:

sound like there is a over heat / or failure of some circuits

32 inch are quite cheap now, so it maybe something you should re-place,

Alba lcd32880hdf has lost colour when watching Tv but works when using games console


It is almost for sure a bad connection at you wires. To show in black and white means your red and green are reversed or bad. I am guessing you have this hooked up with component.

I NEED THE CODE FOR ALBA TV MODEL NO. ALCD15TV8M


There are two code types for sky remotes, Brand Codes & Direct Codes.

The codes for Alba are:

Brand - 0043

Direct - 037, 065, 246, 399, 263, 064, 446

There is a small difference in the way they are set.

To program using the 3 digit code - Direct Code
1) Switch on the TV set
2) Press the TV button on the Sky Remote
3) Hold down the select and red buttons for 2-3 seconds until the LED blinks twice
4) Enter the 3 digit code
5) Press the select button to store
Press TV and any number to test, If this does not operate the TV set try below.

To program using the 4 digit code - Brand Code
1) Switch on the TV set
2) Press the TV button on the Sky Remote
3) Hold down the select and red buttons for 2-3 seconds until the LED blinks twice
4) Press the TV button on the Sky Remote again
5) Enter the 4 digit code for your make of TV
6) The LED should blink twice, if not recheck the 4 digit code used and go back to 1
7) Press the standby button on the Sky Remote (The TV should go to standby)
8) Press select to store this setting
If the TV does not go into standby press the TV button then the standby button, then TV then standby, keep repeating this until successful. This will scan the codes used for a particular make of TV.
