That is odd.

What I'd do is open up the TV and try moving the LDVS cable (the one with many many wires on the main board - no other has as many as it does) to see if that's going to affect the image.

Chances are it would - connectors wear out, get rusty etc. and this is a relatively common issue.

It may also be a bad connection on the other side of the T-CON board (which is where that cable leads to), but that is less likely.

It may also be a bad T-CON board itself.

Alas, no silver bullet for that issue.

I have a Sanyo TV model HT30744. The problem is that there is sound but no picture when the TV is turned on. After about 10-15 minutes a picture will appear. Distorted at first, the picture gradually...

Yes, its still reasonable to have it fix , because the tv will be working fine after they replace probably the tube.

Hope that helps.........
