Ghosting on the screen

I used to have a Replay TV box and there was no screen saver mode built into the software. The problem is that I fell asleep a few times with the box on and now there is a relay screen burnt into the screen, What do I have to do or replace to get rid of this message?

Re: ghosting on the screen

I'm sorry but the TV is damaged permanently. The only way to restore the screen is to replace the CRT tubes. Depending on the colours that burned the image, there's a rare chance it might not be all three of the tubes.
If you can put up with the burnt image it will fade with time but will never disappear completely.

Sony 46" lcd turns off by itself and will not power up again.

Sony TVs come with a one year warranty on parts and labor. Call Sony at 1-800-222-SONY They will find a local company to service this product.

These TVs have a self-diagnostic screen that a tech can access to help solve the problem. Your problem could be any number of things including the fan(s) stopping, the ballast board failing, Q-box issue or none of the above.

Samsung flat screen tv 1 y.o. getting no picture just grey....t.v. says no input device "air 34" I have comcast cable. The other two tv's are getting perfect reception. I fell asleep with the tv on "sleep"...

Try to set up channel SEARCH again, this lets some tv`s find the cable channels and lock them in to the available one, also make sure the reception mode is on cable, "air 34" could be an antenna connection mode.

Ghosts on my tv

if you can, try hooking up the tv to a different cable line in the house or bring a different tv into the room where the bad picture is [ you may have a bad connection or wire ] if this doesn't help, try rabbit ear antennas just to get a picture. if you still have ghosts on your tv, the problem is with your tv.if the picture is fine, there maybe a problem with your cable service.
hope this helps
