Question about Sylvania 6620LDG 20 in. EDTV-Ready LCD TV/DVD Combo

1 Answer

Black screen after 1-2 minutes.

I have a Sylvania SSL2006 LCD tv and after about 1-2 minutes the screen starts fading and then turns off. The tv is only a couple of month old and we hardly watch tv that much on it. Does anybody have a clue what could be wrong with this fairly new tv. Thanks.

    i have a sylvania model ssl2006 less than a year old with the same problem. TV will turn on for less than one minute, then shuts off, can be turned back on immediately, but will not stay on. HELP?

    SSL-2006..ditto on this problem, and the set was barely out of warranty, so no help from the Sylvania. The repair will cost over $150 at a local shop. Not sure this set is worth that investment.

    We have been having the same problem with this tv. It is about a year and a half old and isn't used that much. The TV turns off after only about 10-15 seconds. Have not called anyone yet, just trying to see if there is a solution that isn't too expensive.

Hi, I just fixed one I bought on eBay with the same problem. My problem was caused by the screen backlight inverter. Fortunately I had one from another TV I bought last year on eBay. The repair only took about 15 minutes. Your best bet is to contact Funai Corp. and really complain even if it is out of warranty. They make Emerson, Funai, Symphonic and Sylvania and all the parts inside are the same (from the same years). If that don't work look on eBay for one with a broken screen or some other damage, call your local dealer and see if they have the inverter from a broken TV or ask around. We have a freecycle group in Michigan that recycles things rather than throw them in landfills you may have one in your state too !
Good Luck,

Ssl2006 sylvania tv shuts off after a few minutes. Can restart but goes off again. This TV is only used occasionally to watch TV in guest room.


If you always leave it plugged into the wall, it was running 24/7 even if you never turn it on!
It may have power supply problem (bad caps, cold solder joints, etc.) and that will be the first palce to look.
Please read my guide so you will undet stand how TV works.

Sylvania SSL2006 dead, won't turn on. fuse is ok,


Hi larry
Since you know electronics that will make the explanation simpler;
On your tv model there is a very common problem that you may want to look at;
There is a small board on the right hand side(backlight inverter board),
Look for a shorted D309 , it is a 9.1volts 1watt zener diode.
As i said it is a common problem for your model.
But there is also the power supply;
All lcd tv`s nowadays it seems end up with bad capacitors in the power supply,
You can recognize them by their rounded tops and you`ll find them at the output of the power supply along the 5/12 and 24volts line.
But especially on the 5 volts line.
If your not sure which ones then replace them all (there might be 6 or 7 of them) it won`t hurt and eventually they will go anyway.
Hope this help good luck

Vizio lcd sreen fading out.


Well time will tell if this is a true solution but I experienced the same issue. Originally I was able to get the TV to work by turning it off and back on.

After some research I notice the the Vizio FAQ mentions a similar issue for which the solution is to unplug the unit for 3min.

After calling Vizio, they suggested that under the menu option Setup, Picture, Advanced Video Features, I should try turning off Advanced Adaptive Luma and Backlight Control.

Dead t v


Good Luck! My SSL2006 tv would cuts off when turned on. Under warranty, the local auth. repair shop tried unsuccessfully to replace parts to fix it. In addition, the repair shop told me it was difficult getting thru to parts support. Either the wrong parts were sent, the right part didn?t work, or additional authorization was required to repair TV. On many occasions I made calls to Sylvania, on the repair shops urging, to find out the status on its repair parts to help get the right parts sent. The set was in an auth repair shop from Feb.-Aug. The shop couldn't fix it. It was sent to Sylvania's repair center in CA, August 18th. WHEN WILL I GET MY TV BACK? I want a new TV!! I have been without this TV for over 6 mos.! I'm very upset with customer service and its repair centers and will never buy nor will I recommend purchasing a Sylvania product.
