You may have a short in the main power board that is causing you to lose sound and video when it gets a certain temperature. This is usually a safety feature which is put in the tv to stop the risk of fire when a short happens or when the temperature rises to a certain point. You will need to get that checked by a professional to see if they can find what is causing the short to happen and for them to fix it.

That is either a faulty power supply board or a defective LCD control board, you can buy replacements online.

    It seems that the back light is malfunctioning or needs to be replaced
    the fact that it turns off after a few hours indicates that is
    getting over heated.

Plasma tv randomly goes black


By the highly technical manner in which you set forth the problem, I can see you are far more electronically savy than am I, BUT just a thought: Is there there any sort of timer setting in the TV menu which may be cutting it on and/or off, and which you have somehow failed to notice? Good luck. . .

My 55ld520 screen goes black, turn off for short time comes back on but then goes black again.


Start simple by using different cables, whether they be HDMI, VGA or standard COAX cables. They could be losing the connection. Also, it's possible the power supply is wearing out and it gets too hot. You might want to simply try some spray air duster type thing to clear out any dust that can make it hot.

Television comes on with picture and sound but" picture" goes black after about three minutes, the sound stays on. If you turn it off for about 20 minutes and turn on again the picture will again go...


Look for cold solder joint in the power supply module, the easiest thing to do is to resolder all the connections on the power supply board. Also chek the DC outputs of the power supply.

Dynex 32" tv picture goes black


If there is still about ? 24. Volts coming from the Power Board when it goes dark, it will be the Inverter board that needs replacing. If not, it is the Power Board that needs replacing. The Voltages should be written next to the sockets & plugs on the Power Board.

My zenith plasma tv popped real loudlike a car backfiring and then the tv picture went black. power on green light wil turn on but it automatically cuts itself back off to the red light


There's an over current fault in the power supply or the Y-sustain convergence board. The loud pop was either a capacitor or pico-fuse breaking from excessive current overload. Sounds like 2 or 3 mosfets have shorted at the gate ends. Plasma TV's always have this problem because they generate too much heat and the components cant take the load conditions. Make your next TV an LCD...

To fix this problem have your local repair shop do it for you.....

any questions please ask.....
