Question about Sanyo DS35510 35" TV

1 Answer

Tv too dark to see

The tv was working fine and it just went dark, I can barely see a picture. It wasn't hit with lightning or power outages. All the colors appear to be working but the screen is very dark. I first unplugged it from the surge protector an plugged into the wall, I tried to change the settings with the on screen menu, I tried the reset button on the remote to restore the factory settings, then I cleaned all the dust off the circuit board and made sure all the wires were connected securely. None of this worked so thinking it was a hopeless cause I did something stupid I tried to adjust the little knobs in the back. Yeah, I know that I'm an idiot. So now I have white lines and all the on screen letters and numbers aren't readable. I've had the tv for six years and it worked great. It is a Sanyo DS35510 35" tv. So I guess what I need to know is it a lost cause? Will it cost more to fix than it is worth? Thank you in advance.

Re: Tv too dark to see

To get rid of the white lines look at the place where you turned the control. It should be called the screen control, turn down the screen control counterclockwise till the white lines just go away. If the picture is still dark, you will need to have this set serviced as there is a problem in the crt driver board, or the power supply board. good Luck

Model 27AF45 Toshiba TV shuts down as soon as it turns on with remote or with the manual on button. was working fine, and one day it just shut off. no lightning or power outage...just died one day.

There is power supply fault inside the TV. it could be any fault up to the E H T circuit. That is the reason the S M P S is shutting down the moment the TV is switched ON.

Do not attempt to repeat. Rectify the fault.

I had a power outage!

Hi there!

Power outages and lightning are the main causes of Electronic failure. It has obviously affected your TV and will need to be seen to by a repair technician if you are not skilled to do so. Regards and good luck, JUS004

Dark colors Picture going out

It is hooked up to Direct TV. When I change the channel on the TV to another input it looks fine but without a picture. as you do not see tint in another channel means your color section is ok it is due to video or luminance section.

Won't turn off...constant hissing...blank sreen

Sounds like a power surge likely followed the outage- or maybe you were actually hit by lightning- and since this set did not have a built-in kill-switch (circuit breaker) it could have very well caused some significant damage. Check the internal fuses, if they are blown, chances are, so is the rest of the set. For the cost of repairing something as over-reaching as this, I'd be looking for something new (And be sure to buy a quality surge protector, so this does not occur again!)

Hope this helps in some small way!

Lightning hit last night tv won't work cable company says it's in the television

Sorry to here about your problem! This is the time of year I used to get tons and tons of sets, stereos ,games, and vcrs in for repair. On your panasonic it seems that maybe the surge took out the tuner portion or the power supply. It sould cost aprox. 200 bucks or so for a new tuner. Im sure your aware that homeowners will cover almost all repair after the deductable. Good Luck
