My screen goes blank about 1 minute after I turn it on. I am using the S-Input but have tried different inputs with no success. No warranty and nobody around will service it anymore.

    I have a 46" Akai tv that is powering on but after about one minute it goes black. While on picture is jumpy and not in color. I have been trying to find out what is wrong with it, I have taken it to 2 different tv repair shops and that I need a new light engine. Could you please help me? I would appreciate your time.

    I turn on the TV, get a picture and sound for approx 1 min and then the picture disappears completely. Sound is still ok. Called a TV repairman and he told me on the phone that it sounds like the DLP mechanism which costs somewhere in the neighbourhood of $800-$900!!! TV is only 2 years old - Viore by Akai sold by Future Shop. Cr?p!

This sounds like a power supply problem in this DLP TV set. Best thing you can do is to call the manufacturer in the owners manual, or go back to where you purchaced the TV set and see where they send the Akia TV sets to be serviced. good Luck

I had shut my tv off and was working fine before I had done so: I whent to turn it back on a few hours ago and when I turn it back on it goes to a blank black screen.

Sounds like the input might be incorrect? I would turn it on and hit the input button, make sure it is set where you want (for example, hdmi 1).

My 55inch LG 3D smart tv is not working properly. When you turn the tv on the LG home screen comes on for a few seconds, and then the screen goes black. What is causing this

it's set to the wrong input device ? the one you currently have it pointed to has no input

also it's possible that cable plugged into current input channel has gone bad or become disconnected from it's source
Hdmi cables are unfortunately famous for this as they have no Lock device to keep them inserted into ports

most TV's nowdays shut off if not provided an input for a few minutes

Computer powers on but screen goes off unexplainably while power still on.

Laptop computers have power saver features that will blank the screen after a period of no input. Default on these can be as short as one minute. Users can change these settings to avoid screen blanking, especially when doing thins like watching movies or streaming video. The power saver feature may be different, and thus the screen shut off timer may be different when the unit is plugged in.

Emerson TV no picture, but still have sound

If this is an LCD TV, show a flash light (torch light) on the screen from a safe distance.
If you can see the picture, the backlight has gone off and might need
of a qualified service technician.

My samsung syncmaster 920nw picuture goes blank after a period of a couple of minutes. If I turn the power off and then back on the picture re-appears but goes off again. It is not he pc since it works...

If you get a flashing screen which show your screen for few minutes and then goes blank it may be an issue with the Monitor.

Try to restart the computer and go to BIOS setup screen. If you experience the same issue in BIOS then the monitor needs a repair or replacement for sure.

My kids PS3 comes on and then when you push play the light turns green and you hear it start up for a couple of seconds and then it goes off.

R - Restore: Restore default settings E - Environment: Change your environment, remove from media cabinet, try different media, try different equipment (TV, router, hotspot, etc.). P - Power Cycle: Power cycle by unplugging your networking equipment from wall for 2 minutes to reset. A - Access this Knowledge Center for useful articles to resolve issues. I - Install the latest System Software Update. R - Resolved: In most cases these steps can resolve your issue.
Adjust the video input on the TV to match the input connector that is being used to connect to the PS3™ system. Check that the cable is securely inserted. Try disconnecting the cable from the PS3™ system or TV and then reconnecting it. There may be a problem with the AV cable in use. Try using another cable that is compatible with the PS3™ system. If the video output settings on the system do not match those of the cable or TV in use, there may be no picture. If the screen goes blank, turn off the system. Then, with only the system and the TV connected, touch the system’s power button for more than 5 seconds to turn the system back on. The video output settings will automatically be reset to the standard resolution. If the resolution of the video content is not supported by the TV in use, when the video is played the screen may go blank. If this happens, go to the screen for selecting the resolution in the system’s video output settings, and then select all the resolutions that are supported by the TV.

Screen Goes Blank

Ive seen this on other monitors. Look for a 1 and 2. Some monitors do NOT auto detect a signal, and this one might not. Look for a way to set the monitor from Digital input to VGA input. Try that and see.

TV screen goes blank but power stays on

Sounds like the CRTs are going into protective blanking due to the vertical output ic needing to be resolderd. Try resoldering the vertical IC that may possibly fix the issue.
