Question about Sansui COM3101 13" TV/VCR

1 Answer

Screen turns black except for one inch around the outer edge

It happens after the tv had been on for 15 min. You can push almost any button and it goes away for about 5 sec. The orginal picture can still be seen around the edge during the black out. Can you help.
Thanks

What is the reason for my E701i-A3 failure? All boards were replaced, worked for a minute, and then had the same "fade to black" failure as the first time.


Your back light controller board or the ballasts for them may be bad if they weren't incorporated into the power supply board.

Won't completely shut off


Do you have a separate Cable Box? It sounds like you are shutting off the signal to the TV and may have to push a 'TV' button the remote then the 'off' button to actually shut down the TV.

Blue screen on my haier 37 inch tv


my tv just went to a blue screen one day. I can turn it on and then it will just remain on the blue screen. Any button (except the volume) I push on the remote comes up on the screen "no signal". What would you suggest? I have been reading about replacing a fuse or board? Most of those are on the 42 inch version---I have teh 37 inch version.

A black box appears on the screen


Hi,
Just happened to see your black box problem associated with your T.V.; Thought I would pass along an idea for you to check into, and let me know if it helped...Check into whether or not it has a onscreen text block mode, if it gets into this mode by accidentally pressing the wrong buttons on the remote and or TV, it could and I have seen, at least with zeniths, a big black box which will cover the whole screen except for a 2 to 4 inch border around the box and outer edge of the screen...if this is the case, find someone familiar with the correct setting for the set associated with this problem, and get it back into the right mode....Hope this helps..T.

Black out screen


I had the same problem once with my RCA television. It only happened on certain channels and didn't happen during commercial breaks. If I adjusted the volume on the tv the box went away, but came back shortly after. The problem ended up being some malfunction in the closed captioning. I turned it all off and changed the CC settings and never had the problem again.

Black square covering up most of the screen


Try goeing into your Menu and see if you have the closed Caption on that will produce a black box on the screen if you have the owners manual look in there,if you don't have it you can go on line and download it from the manufactures website under Downloads Good luck Walter Grzybowski
