Sylvania 6637lct- takes a while for picture to warm up

I have a sylvania 6637lct LCD tv.
About 3 weeks ago, when I turned the tv on in the morning, the screen was a fuzzy blue color, and when the TV tunes in, everything comes in pinkish and blue in color. after 15-20 minutes or so of the tv being on, eventually the regular color will be restored, and the tv will work properly.
at 1st it didnt do it all the time, now it does it everytime I turn on the TV.
can someone please explain why this is happening and what I need to do/replace to get my TV back in normal working order

It appears like you are reporting 2 distinct problems here. Let me address them separately:

1) The set has wrong colors when turned on, soon to be resolved just by time. This can be poor connetions either at the cables and connectors or at specific parts within the set. Since the set recovers, it suggests that heat will "fix" it. This would lean me toward a poor solder connection inside. If the sound also recovers after warmup, I would be looking for bad connections on the power supply board.

2) No sound. It is unlikely that the speakers are the problem. If you trace the sires that go to the speakers back to the board, you should see a 5-9pin part that may be attached to a heatsink. Once again, check the connections on the pins for this part to be sure that they are in good condition.

If you can solder, you can attempt this repair by resoldering the connections in the areas described above.

Let us know your results

Hi Bryan,
If your tv is only 3 weeks old you should check on the return policy of the store you bought it from, if your lucky you will be able to exchange it, if not you may have to ship to manufacturer.
Do not disassemble the tv! it will void the warranty.
With the range of problems you are having the tv needs to be serviced under warranty. Let me know if this helps and please rate this solution. Lone99star

Check if the power is on.
• Check the outlet connection.
• Check the antenna or cable connection to the main unit.
• When the outside antenna is used, check the wire condition and
connection.
• View other TV channels. The problem might be limited to the
broadcasting station.
• Turn off the power and wait for about 1 minute, then turn it on
again

Hi,
Problem seems in main board. As you said TV has no sound and there is a cycle of problems until TV gives correct picture.

Above symptom shows problem in digital video processor (main board) and can be fixed by board replacement.

Shop Jimmy is good source of LCD TV boards. Please ask them about required board.
Thanks.

Most common reason for picture problems of this kind, with blurred picture, and wrong colors on an LCD TV or Monitor is a bad LCD ribbon cable or connector.

The TV must be tested with a replacement LCD cable, or the cable tested for continuity using a multimeter.

On few models LCD controller is directly connected to display, in that case, check LCD controller connection to display panel.

If the cable is fine, then the problem is a bad video chipset on LCD controller board.
The controller board is not serviceable, and when this happens the board must be replaced.

If instead colors are not fuzzy , and you get dim picture, sometimes on a blue color tone, that is a bad inverter, but stating on your description, I do not think this is the case.

Here the replacement parts:Sylvania TV Parts

Call the seller if the replacement part is not listed.

Also get in touch with Sylvania customer support and ask part price, or availibility of extended warranty.

If you have no sound and no video the most likely you have fried your motherboard. If you have done that it's only a 19 inch TV honey. You'll be better off replacing the whole TV.

What channel does this TV need to be set on for a vcr/dvd player


If the vcr/dvd player is plugged in to your TV using composite or component cables (Google images them for a view) then you would select an "INPUT" not a channel. Old TV-VCR tv hookups required a channel select of usually channel 3 or 4 but newer equipment uses an INPUT selection usually found on the remote. Look at the back of the tv where you plugged in the dvd and it should be labeled what input it will be.
