    One more question, so the blue screen won't harm my tv in any way if it stays for hours?

    It won't cause a burn in but, it's not good for it. you might see the day that the blues start to fade and you would have to do a setup to get correct colors back. basically your just wearing out your blue circuits and phosphor dots quicker than the red and green.

SOURCE: philips 32pw9527/05 tv does not start

Generally these type of problem occurs due to atmosphere contains moisture content. Even if it happens in warm area i suspect fbt leakage. Since this is high voltage transformer it can be serviced by qualified technicians only. Red light flashes indicates the tv in protection mode to avoid severe damage due to some short circuit. I think it is helpful to you

SOURCE: JVC N Series TV "stuck' in sleep/timer mode, won't wake up

try pressing the timer button again and then if that does not work go into the menu and look for power saving options. shut off the timer by that way. make sure the tv is on the video setting and not av or dvd if it has those as you won't see the menu.

TV will not come on with remote or power button


The following instructions are for the Emerson EWC1303/1903 tv/vcr. That's the closest match I could find to the Spongebob Squarepants 13' TV
If it's actually in Sleep mode, do the following:

TO CANCEL THE SLEEP TIMER
Press the WAKE UP/SLEEP button on the remote
control until “SLEEP TIMER” appears.
To view the time left for sleep timer press the WAKE
UP/SLEEP button twice, then press the MENU button
on the remote control to exit the sleep timer setting


If unsuccessful, try unplugging the TV for 1/2 hour, then plug it in and try turning it back on either manually or with the remote. Either of these should solve your problem. Best of luck to you!

Now using an hdmi to dvi cable - screen size has reduced


Your digital box should have aspect settings as well. When watching HD TV and or movies there is a possibility to get the black bars on top and bottom. It all depends on the ratio it was filmed in.
