    When you try to power on unit it goes back to standby mode. After about 10 minutes and 100+ tries it comes on. Once unit is hot it can be powered on/off without issue. I have sent unit to two separate repair centers. The first one said that the unit is not repairable, however Circuit City service said that the power supply assembly board is bad. It would cost in excess of $500.00 to repair. I have tried locating the power supply assembly board so that I can replace it myself (I have technical experience). My model # 6842PEA Sylvania 6842PE TV is manufactured by Funai. This set is only 1 1/2 years old. Out of warranty and Sylvania customer service seems not to care. I wonder if anyone knows if there is any recalls?? Any suggestions? It seems that this is a common problem with this set.

I have a vizio e320va that when turned on the backlight flickers repeatedly with picture in and out then starts blinking with vertical lines then the screen goes black and the power stays on, This is all...

The tv is having a problems with the board called T-Con board it is dying and the problems.That why the tv is not sustancening the tv pictures for those coded pictures pixels by the T-Con board to stay on to the tv LCD screen panel.This tv problems only causes by the tv T-Con board it is dying only if the tv problems came on to the tv by itself only.If these problems causes by u or an object by outer forces by hitting to the tv LCD screen panel itself.Now the tv LCD screen panel itself it is dying and the causes.Than the tv it is not repairable,tv now only can it to do a replacement of the tv whole LCD screen panel itself only.Not practical because the tv LCD screen panel are 90% important to the tv and the cost of the tv.If u replacing the tv LCD screen panel itself will cost the same as a new tv.The tv is under a year old,why don't u just call Vizio corp. and take ur tv warrenty repair.

My Samsung DLP hln567w tv has NO picture on all

If the Lamp ignites and stays lit, but screen is completely black, not even the on screen display, then it is likely a bad DMD board.

If the lamp ignites and then turns off after a couple seconds then it is likely the color wheel is seized.

If the lamp never fires, but the TV clicks a bunch of times, then it could be a bad Ballast or the Lamp itself.

Tv turns on and off by itself

Picture tubes rarely go bad. You have a bad connection or something on the circuit board that is breaking down due to the temperature change . Probably an easy fix. Not something an unqualified person can do though. Your local shop should fix this for about $60-100.

Samsung tv turning off by itself

I had a similar problem where my 61" Samsung DLP was turning itself off very frequently I had resolved to try replacing the bulb. I called a local TV repair place to see if they had my buld in stock. The guy I spoke to actually told me how to fix my problem! There is a little blue switch behind the bulb access door. The inside of the door has a little piece that presses the switch down. The switch is supposed to work correctly weather the switch is in the up or down position but samsung forgot to take expansion from heat into account. If the switch is held in the upper position by the door and the plastic expands to a certain point, it triggers the set to shut off. This does not occur of the switch is held in the lower position. What you need to do is take the access door off and put it back on by sliding it into position from above. That will hold the switch in the down position, eliminating the problem. My set has not **** itself off ever since.

Samsung TV stopped displaying picture

No picture but sound can mainly be of two problems, most of the times it is caused by a faulty vertical deflection ic, you can diagnose this by slightly increasing the screen voltage by turning the screen control on the LOT, a horizontal line will appear if the vertical ic is shot, and the other problem is the CRT base, but this is less common for shot base won't go off at once, it will show picture faded in the beginning. Now another problem could be the horizontal output transistor, if the tv has a high power sound output, the sound power supply will come from smps itself instead of from LOT, check that too, to confirm this, check if the CRT filament is glowing. Good luck.
