For about the first 20 minutes that the TV is on the picture goes in and out . It seems like it needs to warm up. Any ideas on the problem?

Re: picture goes in and out

I wonder does your screen flash on and off or does the picture just go away? If it flashes on and off it may be that the power supply has a component that has to heat up to work or a loose connection that finally makes contact. The same thing would happen if the picture just goes away except that a component somewhere in the video circuit could be loose or a capacitor has lost its value and regains it with temperature. There are a number of things that could cause this problem. This is only a few of them. Stargazer

When you turn the tv on it goes to the settings screen and you can't get a picture for about 20 minutes until it warms up

Fist is contact Philips to see if this (with the model number) is a known issue or if there is a software upgrade available for this set.

Static noise and blurry screen

You need to take your TV set to Service Center, because the inner parts, especially the flyback transformer, been damaged or worse, the connector broken, that's why you can hear the noise.

I pulled out the Lamp, cleared the dust inside with one of those air blowers and returned the Lamp. That seems to have fixed the picture problems I was having.

I sorry to say I think you have a component failing that is related to heat. 15 years is a long time and if the TV was used in hpot conditions over the years it may well be the proble, or it's just old.

Picture goes on and on constantly

I have the same problem. Picture cuts out completely then back on. When I first turn it on, it does this constantly for about 15-20 mins, then about once every 30 mins or so. The sound is fine, but the picture just flashes on and off.

The color is also starting to shift a lot and cannot be fixed by adjusting COLOR-BRIGHTNESS-PICTURE in the video control menu system. Nothing seems to correct this. I've even unplugged the TV over night to see if it needed some sort of reset. Model = KV-20FV12. Purchased in 2004

My connection is a direct cable connection - Comcast cable. Same problem persist while showing a DVD as well.

Delay to see the picture

Your power supply is going south, I have an old sony with the same problem. The voltage level drops and does not have enough 'kick' to start. It will work better when it is warm. The module will need to be replaced.

Picture cuts off and on

Sounds like you could have bad solder connections inside the tuner of that set.
