Picture comes on, then after awhile goes off

Picture comes on at first, This is a new set just got it yesterday. Everything seems to be working, but the picture will not stay on, does off and on. Tried using the vcr and the same thing happens. Help. I hate to have to ship this back. I not only have to pay for that but also a restocking fee. We did all the menu options the picture just will not stay on

Re: picture comes on, then after awhile goes off

It sounds like you have a problem internally. Call in for warranty service if you do not want to ship it back or call the company and tell them you have a problem, so there should be no return fee.

Tv come on but cant clear the picture from turning red and black how can I get a clear picture?

Without knowing anything about your Tv make or model this is hard; but there should be a reset button in your menues to restore all settings to factory default. Find and use that. However I am suspicious and think the set needs reapir.

I have a 32" RCA LCD tv , rlc3210 power input says

Is it hooked up with HDMI cable?

If so try unplugging the HDMI cable and re plugging the cable in, sometimes those cables work loose and if they are not tight, it will cause your screen to flicker. Happens to my TV once in awhile.

Our picture seems very dark, We got a new lamp installed about 8 months ago and have played with the colors etc but after awhile the picture just goes darker. any sugestions?

There should be a setting for the dynamic contrast ratio(or backlite setting on some tvs). Turning the dynamic contrast ratio off should make the screen brighter. This is usually called the DCR setting, turn it to off.

That definately sounds like a lamp going bad. I've seen a lot of these in our shop doing same thing and a new lamp fixes about everyone of them. I would definately start there. Just remember to fasten the lamp door back properly when you have finished changing the lamp. There is a safety switch that won't allow the set to come on if the door is not put back on properly. A lot of people forget to do this.

My Westinghouse 36 inch TV has picture and sound when I turn it on but when I change channels, the picture disappears and I have only sound. The picture comes back if you turn the TV off and back on but...

Hello, it sounds like your inverter board is goin out on the set, when you change channels if you notice on almost any TV the screen goes dark and the new channel appears, it sounds like you are not getting enough power out of the inverter board to power up the backlight enough to come on. This is why the sound remains because everything else works fine and the sound is connected to the main board.

Problems with sound that buzz/vibration sound My brand new Toshiba 40 LCD has similar occasional buzz/ vibration coming from inside TV

Same problem with my new Toshiba 55" LCD.
Also, after being on for awhile, the sound suddenly gets distorted in a fuzzy, echoie kind of way. Switching to a non-digital channel and switching back seems to make that correct itself. I may try a new HDMI cable to see if the problem goes away. Any other ideas?
