SOURCE: I have a 32" HD AKAI TV that keeps turning itself off

If the service shops didn't charge people $200 to fix this I would not post.. But since they do - here's the $8 fix.

If you are electronically inclined, replace the three 1000uf 16v electrolytic capacitors in the power supply board located above the power switch. They are likely bulging out at the top and failed. They are the three in a row at the top - center of the board, located between the two black heat sinks. Make sure you get caps rated for 105c degrees! I recommend replacing them with 1000uf 25v caps. 35v caps will work but might be a tight fit as they are larger diameter.

Should cost you about $8 for the parts shipped. You can get them from partsexpress or digikey or any good local electronics store. Your local radio shack may have them but they won'y be 105c and thus may not last long.

Not handy, ask around, there is usually some electronic tweaker guy around that will install them for a few bucks.

This has solved the turns on / then off problem every time in the 3 I've done.

SOURCE: TV keeps shutting off automatically

Since your plasma is less then a year old, I would suggest to contact the manufacturers to get it fix under warranty. If the plasma keeps shutting off by itself, that is not normal and should be repair.

SOURCE: 42" Samsung plasma keeps turning off

I have over 10 years experience in electronic tech support.

I know this isn't what you want to hear, but the problem you've described can't be fixed with troubleshooting. Your TV will have to be repaired. There is a part that has developed a defect and needs to be replaced. If you're still in warranty, the TV will be repaired at no charge to you. The warranty would likely be at least one year from the date of purchase from the manufacturer. If you purchased an extended service plan they will repair the TV at no charge as well.

If the TV is no longer in warranty, it will likely cost a minimum of $150 parts and labor. This is assuming that you only need a power supply module. If the problem is more than one of the circuit boards, the price of repair could go much higher.

I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here. Please be sure to vote on my response. I hope I've earned a good rating from you today.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

SOURCE: lg lcd tv keeps changing chanels

Come on, lets try to solve this. Take the batteries out of the remote so it can't interfere and try changing the channels and volume with the buttons on the tv. If this works then someone has spillled something onto the remote and gummed it all out. You simply need to take the remote apart and clean it out. If the buttons on the tv do th same as the remote did then yes, take it back.

How do i FIX THE COLOR PROBLEMS I HAVE WHILE WATCHING DIRECT TV? Dynex DX-L42-10A 42 in. LCD TV


My guess is that your DirecTV box is outputting in a format your television does not recognize. Some models of the DirecTV box have a button on the front of the box for formats (480,720,1080) and you may be able to press that button until the picture comes in clear.

If there is no button:

1: Try an alternative connection tyoe to the TV from the box (if available, like RCA or coax), then switch the TV to that new input. If you get a clear picture with that connection, then in the settings menu for the receiver there should be format settings where you can select which formats to output. one of the selected formats chosen would be causing the problem. Change or remove one of the formats. (. I.e. if 720 is selected, deselect it.) After that switch back to the original connection and input to test.

or 2: The DirecTV box could be connected to a different TV and in the settings menu for the receiver there should be format settings where you can select which formats to output.

Another unlikely possibility is that the HDMI cable or slot on the TV itself is bad. Try switching the cable or try a different slot in the TV if available.

Losing sound momentarily


Are you using an HDMI cable and a digital box from your cable/sat company?

HDMI supports 2 different audio formats and when using a box from your provider sometimes the tv thinks the other format is available and switches to if for a few seconds.
Try using a HD component cable, they have Green, Blue, and Red video with Red and White audio, if the issue is your TV switching between formats this should fix it.

LG TV KEEPS TURNING OFF


Kindly do not keep attempting to turn it on, as you are likely to spoil some other boards/parts/components of the TV. Look for any loose contacts in power out let, RC jack, cable and socket. In order to ensure, it is not caused by the input device, connect a DVD player
and see. Switch off TV, switch off power, remove plug and wait for 48 hours and retry.
If problem persists, I suggest it is better to refer it to a qualified service technician, since the back cover has to be opened for investigation/rectification.

My PS3 will not play sound on my Sony Bravia HDX275 surround sound system. I have the HDMI cable plugged from the PS3 to the TV. I have another HDMI cable from the receiver to the TV as well as a opitcal...


Hello,

Adjust the system's audio output settings. These settings are mainly used when the system is connected to audio devices that support digital audio output, such as AV amplifiers (receivers) for home entertainment systems.
1.
Confirm the formats supported by your audio device.
Settings vary depending on supported formats. For details, refer to the instructions supplied with the audio device.
2.
Select in_soundset.gif (Sound Settings) under in_setting.gif (Settings) in the home menu.
3.
Select [Audio Output Settings].
4.
Select the input connector on the audio device. Channel numbers and audio formats that are supported vary depending on the connector in use.
soundoutput001.jpg Input connectors on the TV or AV amplifier (receiver) PS3™ system output connectors Channels that can be used for output 2 Ch. 5.1 Ch. 7.1 Ch. HDMI HDMI OUT connector in_maru.gif in_maru.gif in_maru.gif Digital Out (Optical) Digital Out (Optical) connector in_maru.gif in_maru.gif - Audio Input Connector / SCART / AV MULTI AV MULTI OUT connector in_maru.gif - - 5.
Select audio output formats.
Select all output formats that are supported by the audio device in use. If [Audio Input Connector / SCART / AV MULTI] is selected in step 4, the screen for selecting audio output formats will not be displayed. If [HDMI] is selected, you can also select to automatically set the audio output format. (In this case, the HDMI device must be turned on.)
soundoutput003.jpg 6.
Check your settings.
You can go back to the previous screen and revise the settings by pressing the in_left_key.gif button.
soundoutput002.jpg 7.
Save your settings.
The audio output settings are saved on the system.
Hints
  • [Linear PCM 2 Ch.] audio is set to be output from all output connectors by default. If you change the audio output settings, audio will be output only from the connectors that were set.
  • If you change the audio output settings, the system will no longer be able to output audio from multiple output connectors at the same time. For example, if your system is connected to a TV via an HDMI cable and to an audio device via a digital optical cable and you switch to [Digital Out (Optical)] under [Audio Output Settings], audio will no longer be output from the TV. To output audio from the TV, switch the setting to [HDMI], or select in_setting.gif (Settings) > in_soundset.gif (Sound Settings) > [Audio Multi-Output] and set the option to [On].
  • If you select [Linear PCM 2 Ch. 88.2 kHz] or [Linear PCM 2 Ch. 176.4 kHz] in step 5, sound may be intermittent or may not be emitted from some audio devices.
  • When using an HDMI cable, only [Linear PCM 2 Ch.] audio will be output from PlayStation®2 and PlayStation® format software. To output Dolby Digital or DTS audio, you must connect the PS3™ system and the audio device using a digital optical cable and switch to [Digital Out (Optical)] under [Audio Output Settings].
  • If a device that is not compatible with the HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection) standard is connected to the system using an HDMI cable, video and/or audio cannot be output from the system.
