Should I fix my TV or buy anew one?

Before you buy a new TV go through all the TV menu options to see if it has automatic dimming depending on the amount of light in the room. If it does it may be malfunctioning and turning that feature off may fix the problem.

Sylvania LD320SSI when turned on goes through a series of different colors and will not stop.

The way it can be brought back to normal is by pressing the "Standby" button on the tv and wait 5 seconds. Then press it again and as the TV was turning on, press the "Menu" and "Source" buttons on the tv simultaneously and when the tv was on it was on the menu. Turn the tv off with the remote turn it back on again with the remote. Should be back to normal. Hope it helps someone, it worked for a friend who had the same problem.

My 37 inch Sylvania TV model LC37SS9 M turned off by itself and to turn back on. I was watching dish network at the time

If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life of your monitor or TV by several years.
Check the cables, connectors and connections.
Take it to a repair shop.

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

I turn on tv shuts off after 30-45min. red lite goes dim

It's likely that the TV will require service since your troubleshooting steps didn't resolve the problem. If your TV is smaller than 30", you may carry it in to the retailer of purchase for repairs. Otherwise, service for your TV can be obtained by calling 1-888-237-8289 in the U.S. or 1-866-237-8289 in Canada.
