Try this simple test i know its kinda weird, but it helps to know what seems to be the problem.tap your unit three times, while tapping look at the screen, see if it flicker or the screen has picture.then, check all connection, if its all ok. then, you'll need a tech to do a manual troubleshooting.

Just purchased a Sony Bravia 49XD8305. Great picture but the sound quality is awful. Speech is really hissy even through the sound system. Is there a setting that needs changed


Return it to the store for a replacement before your warranty expires. There isn't any setting that would correct that kind of noise problem.

No sound or picture but lights come on sony wega plasma


Typical failure for all plasma tv's is a blown Y-sustain board. Another high failure for all tv's is dried out bulging capacitors in any of the power boards. You likely have one of these problems.

Individual pixels are turning on ramdomly. No real picture. No sound. There was a snap when this happened


Sounds like something on one of the boards went. You heard a snap. May have been a capicitor that popped. If it is still under warranty, take it in and have it replaced. If not, depending upon your abilities you may want to take it to a tv repair place or fix it yourself.

My Sony KDE-37XS955 won't show a picture. The green "on" light flashes, then changes to a red flashing "standby" light. Any thoughts?


I would need more information ,count the exact number of flashes and any pause in between flashes this is a code for troubleshooting. The TV went into protection mode

LCD Philips 26pf8946 after about 45mins right hand 1/3rd picture not viewable


Hi Darnez,
It sound like to me that one of the boards that power the bad side of the screen is getting hot and quitting. The boards are not too expensive to replace but getting them is generally the big problem. ( At least for our company). The set would be worth tkaing to a local shop and have it looked at, but replacement costs are going down every day it seems.
Good Luck
I hope in some way this has helped
