Make sure you have the TV connected correctly. If you have a cable box or satellite receiver and are connecting using an RF connection to the TV's antenna jack, you need to be on the right channel (usually 3, maybe 4 depending on the box setting). If you are connecting using A/V cables be sure you don't have a bad cable and that you're connecting to the proper jacks. If you are trying to pick up digital broadcasts off-the-air, you might need to adjust your antenna or put up an outdoor one. Signal strength is very important to digital reception.

If none of this solves your problem you may just have a defective TV. If it is really so new it will be covered by the manufacturer's warranty, and may still be in the store's return period. Call for service or exchange it.

It started out with alot of different colored squiggly lines it would clear up after about ten minutes but it just shut off yesterday the red button on the front still flashes though


Especially Projection TVs will shut down to protect the projection tubes because loss of proper scan can burn an image into the phosphors in the tube itself. The squiggly lines most likely are a symptom of a failure in the Horizontal output section (the part that scans the picture from left to right), there is also a possibility of the Vertical output section (the part that scans the picture from top to bottom causing the problem. This will require replacing a circuit board or repairing the one in the set at a component level. This is best left to a qualified Technician to do the work.

NO PICTURE BLACK SCREEN AND A BLUE LINE ACROSS SCREEN.


The vertical circuit has failed. This can be as simple as poor connections on the pins of the vertical IC or a defective IC. If you can solder, you can fix this yourself. Let me know if you wish to attempt the repair and I'll provide details and instructions.

Squiggly Lines at Power On


Generally speaking, this type of symptom is caused by AC hum leaking throught the power supply. This can be due to a bad filter cap. Since this clears up after a while, I'd start by looking for poor solder connections in the power supply area. If you can, check the caps in that area as well. I'll research this a bit and try to get you more details.

You have poor solder joints, (called ring cracks), somewhere on the foil side of the board... The slap and tickle method you use brings them back together temporarily then heat expands them and they separate again... Nedd to pull the board, find them, and solder them up..

Diagonal lines and ghost images


You may have a bad flyback transformer (high voltage trans former). The lines you're seeing are retrace lines caused by the picture tube screen set too high. This is often caused by the screen control opening up. This control is part of the flyback.
