Hi, I own the same TV and had the same problem. It's the #1 plaguing issue with flat panel TVs made by Funai corp. Emerson is made by them. Normally, when this happens, the TV goes into " Protection Mode " because of a failing circuit board.

The most common thing to go out on flat panel TV is the circuit board that supply power to the screen. Commonly called a Backlight Inverter Board. But, I can't say it's 100% the problem because I can't actually look at the tv over the internet. I can only make guesses with the symptom. I'm willing to bet you have the same problem like mine. One of six Inverter Transformers when bad on my Power/Backlight Inverter Supply Board. I replaced it and it works fine again.

You have a few choices:

1. You can try leaving the TV unplugged for 30 minutes so the TV can reset itself.


2. If by chance the TV is still under warranty, go that route.


3. If you have some electronic experience, if you can find and purchase a Service Manual at Tvtechcenter.com; It will help you diagnose the source of the problem and fix it by soldering in the new part. The Service Manual will give you circuit diagrams, test points, and part# lists.Usually, cost under $6. And most cases the new part cost less than $15. The service manual at the site is under LC320EM82S.


4. Pay a TV shop to do the repairs. It maybe costly, but get an estimate of how much they will charge. That way you can decide if it worth repairing or replacing the whole TV.


I hope I shed some light on the subject for you.

Sound but no picture


Start by eliminating the variables. Connect a source that you know is working (e.g. a VCR or DVR that is working on another TV) to your TV. If you get the same result, connect it to a different input and, if possible, different input type. If you still get the same result, your TV is bad. Most standard TVs are not worth fixing since it costs almost as much to fix them as to purchase a new one.

If changing the input fixes the problem, the TV has a bad input and you can just switch to a new input.

If changing the source fixes the problem, your source is bad and needs to be repaired or replaced.

Be sure to use cables that you know to be good by testing them on another source/TV system.

If changing the cables fixes the problem, then replace the cables.

Tv comes on for a few minutes then goes off


If you take off the front bottom panel of the tv wich is easy. Then you will see 6 tuning knobs at the bottom middle of the tv .the top 6 control contrast for the lights dont mess with those. the bottom 3 are the power to each light.red is bottom left if your screen went blue it makes sense that the red is starting to go but if you turn down the power to it left 1/8 turn it should fix it for awhile .Its easy.

TV goes black, won't power off


If the power indicator remains on (or LED remains green) when the unit goes dead, you will need to replace the main board to resolve.
