SOURCE: Tv cuts off and green light flashes

If your set was manufactured around July 2005, you may need a firmware upgrade to solve this issue. On the Sony website you can enter your model # and serial # to see if you TV is affected. If so, it is easy to have done and may be free from Sony. It sounds like the issue they described in the writeup on the required formware update. I had mine done within few months of when i bought it (purchased in Dec 2005) and it has been working flawlessly since.

Good luck!

SOURCE: Turns itself off

Sharp LC-13AV4U - turn it on and in ten seconds it turns off.
Happens every time.
Any Ideas?
-----------------------------------------------
DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK!
This is NOT a fix, this is a permanent band-aid.
All you need is a phillips head and tiny diagonal cutters....
Heck, even a nail clipper would do it.
Just disable that faulty protection shut-down circuit!
Remove all the screws from the back cover
and look at the main board with the
unplugged! power cord towards you.
In the upper right corner of the board, you will find
a tiny red-striped zener diode, labeled as D409.
It is to the right of an electrolytic capacitor marked C403.
Snip this diode, at either end, or snip both ends and discard it.
Re-assemble the TV.....and you just got your tv back!.
I only run mine when I am sitting in front of it,
I never leave it running unattended....just in case!
Don't blame me it yours burns up....but mine is just fine.

SOURCE: Sharp aquos lcd screen goes blank

i was having these same problems with the screen going black, and i found that when i hit the back of my tv it would work sometimes. so, i improvised on some of the advice on this page and so far no problems. here is what i did (its very easy):

1. lay the tv on the floor and take off the back panel. (i think 12 screws)

2. on the right side of the tv (as you are looking at the back) you will notice a large metal covering that is held in place by 6 screws. unscrew these and remove the metal cover.

3. you will notice that the three screw holes on the left side of the board have some sort of metal or solder around them, in sort of a star pattern. when i looked closely i noticed that most of the metal (solder) was tarnished, or kind of blackened. (this must mean that the ground screws werent getting a good connection and this would explain why it would work sometimes when i hit it because it would vibrate the screws enough to get a good connection! )

so, take a pencil eraser and erase all the black or tarnish off the metal surrounding the screw holes. thats it! (to be safe i took some sandpaper and cleaned up the screw holes on the back of the metal covering, but i dont know if that was necessary)

at this point i followed another gentleman's advice to do a hard reset. this involved unplugging the 8 connections although i dont know if this was really necessary because i believe my problem was a ground issue. i did it just to be safe. his advice is on this site if you want to do this step.

4. i put everything back together and it worked! i performed a soft reset at this point which puts your tv back to factory settings. just go to menu>setup>reset>return to factory settings? yes
this will turn your tv off and back on. that's it. so far so good for me.

SOURCE: Hi. My Philips flat TV will not show any picture

I had the Same issue. on a 50PF9431D/37 set. Many Plasma Set's use a LJ44-00118A PS-505-PH Power supply from Samsung. Known to have this common problem. If you can, or have a friend that can Solder components?. Unplug your set remove the back panel & locate your power supply. It will be the PCB in the center of the set just above the Video/Audio connections. http://www.shopjimmy.com/power-supply-unit-lj44-00118a-from-philips-50mf231d-40.htm. Is a Link to a photo of the PCB. Make a note of the locations of all cable connections then unplug them all. Un-install PCB, Check all Fuse first. I believe their is 5 or 6 of them on the PCB. Then replace the two 3300uf 10v 105C Radial capacitors at C8060 & C8059. Look to see if the Caps are deformed and or split at the top. The location of the caps are in the Lower bottom edge of the PCB. A local shop may Carrie them if not, digi-key has them.

I bought sj-5501 Sharp fridge . Yesterday I have no lighting on the front panel display of the refrigerator The refrigerator works right What could be the reason ? Thanks,


You can try one of these;

1. Hold down "Energy Saving" and "Lighting" buttons simultaneously for 10 seconds (or top left & right buttons). Display panel returns immediately

2. press the Freezer and Ref buttons at the same time for 8 secs and Bam!!!! Bac 2 normal!

3. pressed the power freeze and vacation buttons for about 3 secs and it worked

4. I held the top left and top right soft touch buttons on the screen itself (which I think is the power save and the lighting buttons) and held for about 8 - 10 secs and it reset

Hope it helps. Its in the combination of two buttons pressed simultaneously. Try your luck.

Sharp Aquos 32 LCD freezes on air channel


I had the same problem, same channel, same day. It must be a problem with signal strength. With the TV on, I unplugged the coax cable that leads to my antenna (I am not on cable). As soon as I disconnected the antenna, I could change the channel off of 11.1. I plugged the antenna back in and all other channels work. Hope this helps.

When i turn on my tv, the channel often freezes for about 30 secs. This also happens on occasion when i have been watching one channel for a while & then change channels. Sometimes the screen freezes...


Possible as you have suspected the firmware can be corrupt or have errors. Since you have not mentioned the make/model the details we are not able to comment.

Picture freezes on Sony Bravia 46 in


this can be a weak signal check the connections on cables. also in hot weather you can get a build up of static electricity and it will need to be discharged, turn off tv at mains and cross the connector and the cables if you have a buster or other box connected to them turn off and do the same to them. use something metal but make sure there is no power to them.

Lines across screen when using View On Demand channels


Could be a couple of things causing this.

1) Obvious, but I assume that you subscribe to these services, because otherwise it could be the encryption.

2) Make sure that you have the set-top box connected directly to the TV, and not through an external recorder (VCR, DVD etc)
This would be a problem if the services were copy protected in the same way DVDs are.


You could also check the settings on the set-topbox. Make sure the video output is set to RGB.
