32" lcd after a while picture goes to negative (inverted colour) somtimesd on power up also

I have a Techwood 32" lcd modl:LCD3211 I also think that it's a Wafdale re badged, as mentioned tv can be on OK for about 20mins and then goes to a rather unwatchable negitive effect (all blacks go blue, softer blue goes to vibrant white) did the usual "shock test" picture comes back somtimes for the rest of evening somtimes for about 20/45mins. there are times when set is turned on it gives the problem. Any one with ideas or help, I'm thinking it may be a dry joint but rather than go over the whole set with a iron, thought I'd ask first.

HI There, I have a TCL PDP42U3H, voltages on power board are within specs. Getting full picture but very dim with lots of background noise, colours seem to be like inverted like looking at a negative with...

I was a little confused as the model is a Plasma Screened set and you wrote LCD. Not to worry. In the old days, people were told that the display on plasma screens needed to be "re-gassed", this is nonsense. The gas goes no where and is inert anyway, made up of elements like neon, argon and a few other choice U/V emmiting products.
I would say you have a power supply problem in conjuntion with a video pedastal problem. The plasma screen has a half life of some 17000 hours, which is enough for ones eyes to turn square. Thereafter the same again until the picture dulls dow to a still acceptable level.
The supply voltage is not the critical one it is the bias voltage on the video processing that is all important. Do you remember the old colour TV's with pedastel problems and negative/inverted colours, (ITT CVC9 comes to mind instantly here).
If you have a service manual, check the waveforms around the video processor for inconsistencies, if you haven't it is a workshop repair anyway but without a manual you have no real way of knowing what you are looking for.
Hope that sheds some light on your problem.

Dynex 32" tv picture goes black

If there is still about ? 24. Volts coming from the Power Board when it goes dark, it will be the Inverter board that needs replacing. If not, it is the Power Board that needs replacing. The Voltages should be written next to the sockets & plugs on the Power Board.

No picture on 32" Polaroid

Your inverter boards need to be tested and serviced, these are circuits designed to control the light behind the LCD glass panel. It could also be the power supply not feeding 24volts too the inverter circuits. In that case the power board would need servicing.

Take it back if its under warranty if not get it serviced at your local repair center..
