Screen blinks, stops like a DVD on pause only we aren't watching a dvd. There is also a click sound when this happens and it also affects the audio. Screen does not go black or blank. Motor boating, discharges and starts again. This set is not two years old yet. Very annoying to watch.
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.

Fault to the main power supply regulator section. Either it will be a separate board, or the part of main board. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts.
I was wondering if you ever located the problem in this tv? I have the exact same syptoms right down to the overheated section of the board with R417 and Q402. D309 checks good in mine and the power supply caps are not bulging or leaking at all. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
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
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 !
