Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

For the past hour I have been trying to get an answer to a problem that I have paid for by credit card . No answer has been forthcoming except password and nickname requsests which I have provided. An answer of get premium assistance is not acceptable for a 9.99 charge. Once again I have a 26" Mintek LCD TV s( DTV-260) and a black square of about 60% comes up on the screen at different time and stays. There is no answer to this problem in the Manual.

|I am on your problem on the other thread.

The square black shape can be caused by closed caption turned on.

Did you try disconnecting the power cord? That should reset the closed caption setting.

If you still get the problem, it is a video circuit fault, and the main board inside must be tested.

If it is a regular square shape I would exclude damage to LCD display panel or connector cables problems.

Let me know what you think, and let me know if you did the unplug, I will see if I find the user manual.

Power light comes on then goes right off in 2sec

Sounds like a failed power supply / power board inside the TV. Unfortunately this is a very difficult repair, and unless you are an electrician I would not recommend attempting it. You will need to contact a local TV repair person in your area. If you think it may still be under warranty please contact the manufacturer to file an RMA. If you happened to purchase the TV with a major credit card (not a debit card) there is a good chance it may still be under the free extended warranty most credit cards place on electronics. Please contact your credit card company to inquire if they do this, and they will be able to file the claim and get you a refund for the TV.

So sorry that I don't have better news but it is definitely a power issue internally.

Tv not comming on red light blink 3 times stop then blink a gain 3 times

I do not agree with previous expert solution because it is not power supply/ power board failure in tv.
I think lamp was taken out from tv or may be it was replaced.
Check lamp cover in your Sony tv that is not fixed properly on its position. Make sure lamp cover is fixed securely.

Your problem is simple! The government has recently (in about the past month) required all tv stations to broadcast in digital. You can get 2 $20 credits to get a converter for your arial. You can just throw it out and get a new one, which will recieve in digital. Or you can buy a converter for your TV, using those credits. I'm not sure how how to get the credits.

That is an unfortunate situtation you are in, but you need to understand Westinghouse does not make or manufacture the TV or is components in your TV. They are merely doing what is common in the industry which is rebanding.

$1100 is a lot of money for a 32" LCD so I do not blame you for being upset about the problem you are getting and the service you are experiencing. But the fact of the matter is, there are 32" LCDs on the market today that are starting at $499.99. You can always purchase a more expensive name brand also, but in the end you should consider a replacement warranty or if you put it on a Credit Card, verify whether your Credit Card does automatic warranty extensions....
