    Screen is blue on all components and no Menu options show up. I just had it taken to the repair shop..he thinks it's probably a panel that needs replacing. Could be $300 to $500 repair. Should have gotten the extended warranty. These TV's are not made to last!!!! The TV was $3,000...OUCH!!

    I don't know how to email you :( Couldn't see an address.

    Thanks so much for the's already in the shop and we are just hoping for the best...hope we aren't throwing more money away!!! I'm waiting for the estimate, and maybe we should just buy a cheap TV instead of getting this one fixed, since they don't last very long!! Let me know if you know of a cheap TV brand that will still give a decent picture. I'm just sorry we got rid of our CRT Pioneer Elite...should have just gotten it fixed.

    Thanks for your help!!

    Yup.... these new sets are throw aways, they intented to fill our land fills. Extented warranty is the way to go. I have determined that plasma is the way to go because the display is less prone to failure. LCD panels are prone to scratches, heat, cold, excessive pressure and back light failures. Although plasma are made of glass and can crack I feel they are more durable.

    About your set. if you are a tech try this.... use caution.

    Unplug set.

    Remove back.

    With set on stand and circuit board exposed.

    Get a can of can air, turn it upside down this will spray a liquid instead of air.

    Spray a circuit board until it's very cold.

    Plug the set to a outlet and turn it on and see if there is picture change.

    Do this to other boards, REMEMBER to UNPLUG set from outlet before spraying boards.

    DO NOT allow spray to touch skin the spray gets down to -100 degrees and will cause frost bite.

    You can also try the above using a hair dryer to get the boards to about 110 to 120 degrees.

    This may isolate the problem to a board or to a component.

    Remember use ths at your own risk.

My RCA 46 LCD has no picture or sound but the blue lights on?

If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life of your monitor or TV by several years.
Check the cables, connectors and connections.
Take it to a repair shop.

My Phillips SLC4 flat screen TV has suddenly

The problem has cleared itself a day later after being switched on/off a few times.I suspect the 'computer part' of the TV (channel processor, instruction decoder etc) received maybe a power glitch or an illegal infrared instruction (2 remotes used at once for example) and 'locked up' leaving just the analogue side operating.
I was going to continue happily using it with just the analogue side slaved to my Hd recorder for digital signals but it seems to have got over whatever it was that upset it.

Blue picture

It is your "vergin media box" outputting a blue screen!
When this TV has no input it displays a msg box "No Input Signal" or "Signal out of Range" (PC video resolution is not correct.)
