Re: bright flashes on tv

I had this a couple of years ago. I assumed that it was the color wheel going out. I am handy with these things so I removed the color wheel and cleaned it very carefully.(it is glass) and then gave one tiny drop of oil in the bearings. Seemed to work for me. Not a job for someone not comfortable with electronics. There are replacement wheels on the internet and are not that hard to replace. Remove the rear lower cover and unscrew 2 screws and 1 connector.  Hope this helps

Samsung DLP TV shows green color where color should be black

This could be your video board going bad where your input cables are connected --OR-- the color wheel going bad. Hard to tell without a photo or reference though. Try swapping the cables first... and listen for any winding or whirring sounds.

Power on tv and I get black screen with sound.

You have lost the input will have to go to Setup/Net Command and set your input to the one with signal (either a TV input or a Component input). If it is reset...the input likely switched to a non-usable input

Tv gets bright and then get dim and dose this the entire time tv is on

If you watch a DVD, does the picture also flash? If not, it might be just the TV signal. Are you using a cable/satellite receiver? If so, check it's connections. If anything viewed on the TV, using different inputs and a different cable/wire, is flashing, it is a problem with the light engine or color wheel, if the TV is DLP.

Hi im michael i have a old sony projection screen 10 years old or more. i believe its a trinitron.the picture comes on for awhile then goes out and comes back on just a minute later

Hi Michael,

If you were to watch a DVD using a different input than the cable/satellite input, does the image also fade in and out? When the image disappears, are you able to view the TV's onscreen menu or does it disappear too? When the image comes back, does it look fine and is the brightness the same?

ACER LCD Monitor display is too bright!

I have my husband's hp monitor and thought I was going to go blind. I turned down the brightness to 0 and it still didn't help that much. I decided to turn down the contrast and it worked. Hope this helps.

First thing to try is to press the reset button on the front of the TV. This forces a system reset.
