Question about Sony KDS-R50XBR1 50" HDTV

1 Answer

Video goes black for a few seconds

From time to time the video goes black for a few seconds then back on. The power light does NOT flash or even go off. When the video comes back on the information banners come on like it has turned back on. Sound does not go off also. I have had a Sears repair guy already replace the lamp and also the optical block.

    I have the same problem. It used to happen once in a while - now it happens several times a day. I have had the optic block replaced, and have replaced the fans. The digital tuner doesn't work anymore and one of the HDMI ports is bad. Sounds like a lemon to me!

    I have the same problem. The lamp and optical block (green blob problem) have both been replaced. It really sucks when playing video games!

    My Sony KDS-50A2 does the same thing. Randomly, it loses picture, Audio is OK, then, after 10 -20 seconds or so, it comes back on. green power light stays on like normal. The Projection Bulb appears to go dark during this problem and come back on about 3 seconds before the picture comes back?? I removed the bulb and it APPEARS to be OK?? Help!

    I have a same problem. I turn on the TV, everything is fine for about 5- 10 minutes, then the picture goes out. I still have sound just no picture. Then the picture will come back on for about 2-3 minutes, then out again. I called Sony and they told me to unplug the TV and replug it. Duh , already did that. The TV is 1 year 2 months old, just passed the warranty. Thanks Sony.

The monitor goes black while on


Open it up and look at the capacitors. The round "tin can" looking components. If the tops appear bulged, then replacing them may help. Check out the YouTube video... and web site...

-Orange light on Power-up button stays lit. -No Video, just black screen. using AGP Video card TNT 32mb / Model CT5823 I've replaced the battery, double checked the cables, Power supply is good. Gatew


This is typical of a failed power supply. Look on the back of the power supply, there may be a red switch for input voltage. Unplug the power cord, flip that switch a few times and then plug the cable in and try again. If nothing changes, see if there's a small black button on the back of the power supply. If there is, unplug the power cable and press the button and hold it for 10-15 seconds. If an LED flashes or turns on, then plug the cable back in and try again. If this all fails, replace the power supply.

Computer monitor flashes on then turns off


Try the monitor with another computer. If it works, the video circuitry (whether it is on-board or a separate adapter) in the Gateway is the problem and needs to be replaced. Otherwise, the problem is with the monitor itself. From your description it is probably the Gateway's video that is the problem since the power light on the monitor remains green indicating that it is seeng a signal, but not something it can properly interpret, i.e., one or more of the control signals are shot.

Plasma tv screen goes black once you turn it on. Only sound


I have a panasonic TH-42PX60U plasma TV. When I watch TV programing I have no problems, or with the DVD input. But if I switch to another input, be it video game (PS2) or vcr the screen sometimes goes black and the red power lcd light next to the power switch flashes. Holding the power button in for a few seconds will shut down the tv. Then I can turn it back on and it may operate normally again for a undetermined period of time, before the screen goes black again. This never happened when new. The tv is about 1 year old. Any ideas on this problem? Thanks Ernie

Mag innovision LT716s monitor


When I turn on my computer the monitor takes a long time to warm up and colors change and vertical lines flash across the screen from right to left before the screen becomes normal again. Now the power light even goes out upon turning on my computer and I have to unplug the video cord and plug it back in to start the screen back up which even takes longer.
