TV flickers intermitantly

Hey, i bought a tv a few months ago, its a flat screen plasma HD tv.

after a few days of use it started to flicker intermitantly and after a long argue with the people at the shop they said they would send it back to the manufacturor.

severl weeks later it has come back ( after they replaced two components inside it ) and worked fine for a few days however the exact same problem has come back except for the fact i can some times fix it with a sharp smack on the back...

does any 1 have any ideas whats causing this?

Our plasma tv has a horizontal white line that keep flickering on and off. The tv is only 4 months old, should we contact the store we purchased it from?


Most stores will only give you 30 days to return something. You obviosly have either a bad plasma panel or a scan board. Either way you should have a manufacturers warranty. Contact the store for that info.

No picture, sound works. Screen flickering


It sounds like the video output isn't
working its most likely a component
failure 1 thing you could try is connecting
a rca cables from video/audio out on the set to
another set vid/audio inputs to see if it the video gets
through.This is a problem that requires technical
knowledge and test equipment to trace the video

Lg plasma


there are 2 types of flicker, one is the lamps that drive the display and the second is the sync signal of the video.
I assume the video sync is the flicker you see,
I would try connecting a different way to make sure it is not the tv,
connect using the aux /rca connectors to cable box.
and or connect using the cable direct bypassing the cable box.
I have seen several complaints about the hdmi cable signal being incorrect in some way,
this is the same issue that the svideo connector had in its early adoption signal was too hot or too low.
another thing to watch out for is the low light sensor on the front of tv if it gets an incorrect reading it can flicker the back light though it should be slow in doing so.
some times the flicker you see is not flicker but ac running through the sides of the picture from an ungrounded cable source.
how does it perform if you play a dvd player , with and without the cable box connected.

No screen display - VIzio 50" Flat screen TV


If you purchased the TV 6 months ago, still under manufacturers warranty. They normally give customers 1 year warranty coverage.
It looks like the main board will have to be replace on this TV or fix to the component level.

Flicker-Blinking on picture


Too late now but I hope you had it serviced while it was still on parts warranty. With a couple of exceptions, service on those is by major pcb replacement.
