Lcd tv turns off after a few minutes

I'm using a Regal 32" lcd tv as a second monitor for my Toshiba satellite L30 laptop, connected by vga cable. Everything worked great for about 6 weeks. Today, the tv simply turned itself off. I reconnected everyting and it was working again, but the tv shut off after a few minutes. I've gone through this process a few times and am exasperated. Please help!

SOURCE: LC32OEM9 says Not Supported Format on HDMI Input.

I'm thinking the Comcast DVR box maybe putting out weird HDMI signals and the TV can't translate it. I would call the Comcast people on this one.
In the meantime, I would try finding another source the uses a HDMI cable to rule out the TV as the problem. Basically, testing the TV to see if the problem still happens when you use something else than the Comcast box. Try a Blueray player, Playstation 3, or Xbox. Just something that uses a HDMI cable.

SOURCE: Tv shuts off after 6-8 seconds

capacitors in the power supply, they all should be replaced, before it takes out the rest of the ps. there are companies that rebuild them if your tech is not up on repairing them.

SOURCE: My 32 inch emerson powers up and cuts off after a few seconds.

Hi, I own the same TV and had the same problem. It's the #1 plaguing issue with flat panel TVs made by Funai corp. Emerson is made by them. Normally, when this happens, the TV goes into " Protection Mode " because of a failing circuit board.

The most common thing to go out on flat panel TV is the circuit board that supply power to the screen. Commonly called a Backlight Inverter Board. But, I can't say it's 100% the problem because I can't actually look at the tv over the internet. I can only make guesses with the symptom. I'm willing to bet you have the same problem like mine. One of six Inverter Transformers when bad on my Power/Backlight Inverter Supply Board. I replaced it and it works fine again. d66cb18.jpg

You have a few choices:

1. You can try leaving the TV unplugged for 30 minutes so the TV can reset itself.


2. If you have some electronic experience, if you can find and purchase a Service Manual at Tvtechcenter.com:
http://www.tvtechcenter.com/xcart/search.php?mode=search&page=1 It will help you diagnose the source of the problem and fix it by soldering in the new part. The Service Manual will give you circuit diagrams, test points, and part# lists.Usually, cost under $6. And most cases the new part cost less than $15.

3. Pay a TV shop to do the repairs. It maybe costly, but get an estimate of how much they will charge. That way you can decide if it worth repairing or replacing the whole TV.

SOURCE: Tv turns off a second after I turn it on

Just repaired this actual model.
remove the back of the tv. Loof at the circuit board on the left as you face the back of the tv. In the middle there is a diode that burns out. Remove all ov the screws holding this circuit board to the tv. Carefully unplug all of the connections and flip the board over. See that the number on the back side of the board by the burnt diode is d1940. Have the diode replaced by a competent repairman and oberve polarity. put everthing back as you found it and try the tv. You may want to have a fire extiguisher nearby.

Hi ma3580,
If you can take a it a part, check the connection of the controller board through your main board and the power supply board. Pull-out all connectors then re-inset, this is to confirmed that there is no bad connection issue from this board. If the symptom still persist this is a time to replaced the controller board.

If you can't do the job yourself, I would advice you to look for a qualified technician to isolate the problem.
Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

We have a panasonic 32"inch lcd tv.we want to


hdmi Ports Qty 3 port(s) PC Interface VGA (HD-15) HDCP Compatible Yes

I read your tv has 3 hdmi ports and a PC input.

if your pc has hdmi out - the you use a hdmi cable from the pc to the tv on one of the hdmi inputs.

if your pc has a 15pin vga cable you can unplug from your PC monitor (or go buy a VGA cable if you want to keep one on the tv and one on your pc monitor - or if you are using a laptop).

when you unplug the computer from the monitor .. check the pins - should look to be about 15 pins in the connector. it that will plug into the tv- then you are using a vga cable. if it will not plug into the tv pc input .. don't force it. It could be a dvi connector . .take the cable off the PC and to radio shack and they can fix you up (you need a dvi to vga cable - not likely, but possible)

I always turn off a pc before disconnecting monitors - and plug into the other display before turning the pc back on.

Good luck.
Bill.

When you are using a laptop you have to press and hold down the function key and hold down the dual monitor key (either F5 of F8) for about 15 full seconds. The screen of your laptop should darken and the image should come up on the tv screen.

How to use as monitor for laptop


i assume the TV has a VGA port (blue 15-pin) and that you're using a VGA cable.

the TV will usually have another A/V or input specifically for the VGA which can be called anything from "PC" to "other" make sure you've got that input selected

once you've got all that tell your PC to connect (button looks like a box with a line on each side) by pressing "fn" + "f4" if you have an HP...i think dell uses "fn" + "f8" i think Asus uses "fn" + "f5". (**usually if you press it once it will turn off your comp screen and transmit to tv, if you press a second time it will go back and if you press a third time it will tranmit to both at the same time)
if this is the first time you've connected your laptop to something it usually brings up a screen to configure some options like do you want to mirror the screen or use the tv as an extension of the screen.

hope this helps
