Well I hate to be the bearer of bad news but it would seem that there are some electronic components that have to heat up befoe it starts up fine. I am not going to leave you there just like that. I will give you an explanation. The circuit boards that are being place in all these tvs go through a machine whien everthing is soldered into place. It just so happenns that the soldering is not always hot enough as the board goes through there and you have what are considered cold solder joints. That means that there is not a good enough electrical connection for there to be troublefree viewing. From your stand point you cannot do anything about this problem. But it is fixable. Gog bless and take care.

LCT TV picture blurry with black smudges until it warms up


No easy way short of monitoring with a scope and or voltmeter, based on age of set I would first "look" at all the filter caps in the main power supply--bad ones when they get hot can regain some function:

It turns on, runs for approx 20 mins then shuts off. when you turn it back on it shuts off in approx 12 min and so on and so on. is this a bad power supply?


possibly, it sounds like there is a capacitor in the power supply not holding charge anymore. Or it is loosing hold of the charge once it gets warm.

I have a Hitachi 50GX49B, when I turn it on red light on panel comes on, but no picture or sound. 4 weeks ago picture would come on, but would break up and dissappear until warmed up, this took about 2-3...


if you bang on the TV or try kicking the very center bottom of the tv and it works or flickers you got a loose solder connection somewhere on the board. I got the same problem. When it warms up the solder, around what ever pin it might be, makes better contact. I am looking into the problem and will post my finding when i figure it out.

I own a Philips plasma panel,model number 42PF9966/79


if you can do component testing and or if you want to spend about $20-$30 in components , you could replace all the electrolytic capacitors , voltage regulators/zener diode and check/replace bad resistors.
or yes , start the board replace process
