14 month old Prima 36 inch lcd tv takes 2+ hours before on.
I bought a Prima 37t26 LCD tv about 14 months ago, (with a 12 month warranty through Sears).
Go figure, two months after the warranty expires, I have trouble.
When I power on the tv it takes upwards of two hours to get any response, (except for the ''Prima'' symbol changing from red to blue). Once it does finish powering on the tv works fine, but the time involved is getting longer.
Sears has flat-out turned down any requests for help, and Pirma's support web site just doesn't work.
Any suggestions as to a course of action? I am willing to attempt repairs, (I live in a very small town without any sort of appliance repair depot), as long as it has a reasonable level of difficulty.

If you purchased the warrenty extra above the cost of the tv Sears will allow you to purchase another extended warrenty. Contact them and let them know your extended warrenty ran out and you would like to buy another. I would leave out the part about the tv being broken.

Hello The power supply regulator board to your set has the fault. If you try to open the set, or try to repair it by yourself, the warranty will void. The set must have warranty as it is new. Why do you spend for it? Just contact the nearest authorised service center for Sceptre. the components in this set will be very hard to get from open electronic spare part market, and will costly too.
It is a common Fault on some lcd tvs you will need a replacement switch mechanism fitted don't know the correct name for it but it can be fixed .I had exactly the same problem with my BUSH 26 inch LCD tv took it to a local independent tv shop and the owner repaired it for me it cost around £67 if my memory is correct this fault started on my TV 14 month after i bought it - 2 month out of warranty. hope this response helps
Check the power source?Try unplug,replug tv an hour later.Let the tv resetting itself back to factory setting.The tv should work now.No,LCD tv have common problems power supply board died alot.This tv is new,call Sharp for warrenty repair.
Similar problem with an eleven and a half month old LT-40148. Approx. 1 inch vertical banding line on left side of screen on all inputs. After about two weeks, same problem on the right side of the screen.
Fortunately this occurred two weeks prior to the one year warranty expiring.
Called Mits customer service and they referred me to an authorized service center who I happened to have dealt with before.
They picked up the set. The front panel (LCD screen ) had to be replaced. Set was gone for two weeks as parts were not in stock. There was no charge. I hope this screen last more than a year.
Find out if Australia uses a different standard of HD programming than Guernsey or not since it's not picking up any channels at all with an attenna. Does the skybox use only scart connections and that's how your small lcd is connected to it?
I also have the same problem I phoned Samsung today to explain the tv was only 14 months old, they didn't wanna no because it was out of warrenty by 2 months. I am getting a black solid line down the left hand side of the screen. I ended up phoning Dixons were we bought it from, they have told me to get an independent engineers report done & send the report to them within 14 days. Dixon told me it was a known problem with Samsungs. They said they will fix it free of charge if they can if not they will send vouchers to the same value of the television. So beware stay clear of Samsungs.
