Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

Our TV shuts off by itself usually during commercials. We have to unplug it, plug it back in and turn it on manually ~ till next commercial. Seems to happen more on the cable channels ~ the main networks seem to stay on. I've taken the back off to clean out any dust and it hasn't helped

Hello,

Since commercials are louder volume-wise (especially with cable more than satellite), my first guess would be that you have a faulty part around the audio amplifier of the TV, and it loads the power supply or creates a high/low that tells the TV micro to turn off. Knowing what brand the TV is helps, but in any case, it probably needs to be referred to a TV repair shop for tracking the part(s) down.

I hope this helps you...

Color on TV changes to black and white, then after awhile changes back


It is possible to be the box, and not your tv. A good way to test is to see if it does it when you are watching a dvd or another source. (game system, blue ray, ect) Hope this helps! Good luck!

Sound on my rca tv


I wonder if your problem with loud volume occurs primarily on commercial breaks, when you turn down
the sound and then, since the sound, for the program itself, is so low in volume, you have to turn it way
up again to enjoy the program?

If this is the case, and there are no other problems with the set, this may not be the set's problem, but the
fact that commercial material is broadcast at a higher volume than program material by some outlets, so
that while you are in the kitchen, during commercials, the sound of the commercial can still be heard.

The tv turns itself off constantly usually sfter 7PM and mostly when commercials come on, iturn it back on, then it goes off at the next commercial. sometimes stays on for hours without going off, then it...


your tv off own its own, because its regulation varies, the voltages changes at the output of your power supply, take your tv for repair immediately before it burns more components outside the supply. ask your technician to connect a avo meter at the output of a supply and observe for along time, he will notice a change. thanks

Commercial Skip Feature


When a commercial comes on, you press the "Commercial Skip" button on the remote. Then you see a 30-second countdown timer appear on the screen. If you think there will be more than 30-seconds of commercials, then press the button more (each time you press adds 30 seconds to the on-screen timer -- usually I press it 4 to 5 times). The timer stays counting down on the screen while you change channels during the commercials to see what else is on. When the timer counts down to 0, it is erased from the TV screen and the TV automatically changes you back to the channel it was on when you pressed the commercial skip button. I use this feature a lot! I wish all TV's had it built in. Some universal remotes have a similar (but more awkward feature) where the remote has the timer inside it, and it sends a signal back to the TV when the count is up, but I don't think this would work as well.

Commercial skip/blackouts


Sounds like you're blessed to have a tv like that! Seriously: Some sets have settings that will cut down the sound during a commercial. Haveyou looked at your owner's manual? This tv may have setting to cut out the picture also when commercials come on. From a technical view point generally commercials have stronger signals than regular programming. This may be overloading your set. If this is the case, then you need to have it checked by good technician. A poorly operating power supply (not regulating properly) could possibly cause a problem like this. Also automatic gain control circuits could be not working properly. Stargazer
