Question about Sylvania 6626LCT 26 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

Distorted Picture Our 26inch Sylvania LCD has developed a very distorted picture. Almost animated in nature. The colors are against a white background and very bright pinks, whites, yellows, greens & blues. Manually adjusting the color does not help. Sometimes it will clear up after 10 minutes or so. We have also changed the cable to it and that appears to help some. The first cable had a very thin center wire. Should we be using a specific type of cable? We have only had it 1 year and 10 months.

I don't think that the cable is your problem. Set may have a defective tuner or small signal board. (Tuner is soldered onto the small signal board).

Most likely fix is to find and replace the small signal board with tuner. Should be able to find one for less than $200.

Another thing to try is your video inputs. Use external devices such as a DVD play hooked you using proper video lines and check you inputs. Are they doing the same thing as your cable? If not, then it maybe just a tuner. Some makes and models won't allow you to solder in a new tuner without a full board replacement, but this however may allow you to hookup a VCR with a tuner built in and from VCR to your TV using video input jacks and then programming the VCR tuner to all your cable channels may get your set watchable again without having to tare it apart and replacing a board. However if your input jacks are distorting like the cable channels are, then a small signal board replacement is a must for your set.

Good luck!

I replaced both backlight boards but still having problem with LCD TV...it is too dark and color distortion.


Fault to its main board. Short circuited component/s at it. Contact any service technician; or the authorized service center. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ . In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.

Tv picture distorted


Depending on how long it has been used. Many a times the problem is caused with DJs or simply dry joints what I normally do is open the panel in a clean environment then switch it on make sure the picture is on then with the back of a screw driver tap gently on the ddc card if you see pictures coming back to normal and off again you have your culprit go ahead and solder carefully the dry joints on the ddc card ddc stands for data display channel

Sounds like you need to try reseating the lvds cables on the t-con board.This board is located at the top of the set in the center.You will have to remove the metal shield covering the board.Then you will see to flat cables connected to the board,one for each side of the screen.carefully unlock the connectors and remove and replace the cables.If this does not work you will need a new t-con board.I'm not sure about this particular model but sometimes the t-con board is only available as part of the lcd panel assembly.Good luck!

No picture only sound


Your inverter board or DC input are flawed and need repair or replacement. Let me know if you need a source to get the board serviced or board replaced.
