Question about Element Televison & Video

1 Answer

The TV comes on great picture and sound. After 7 to 10 minutes the TV shuts off. Most times it will come back on in 1 to 2 mins but only stays on a minute or two before it shuts off again.Model # ELDF

Taken the back off and looked on the power supply board for obvious blown caps etc. I do ok with electrical repairs but electronics I dont know near as much about. I've looked on ebay and found many of the power supply boards priced between 29.00 and 60.00. But I dont even know if this is the problem. Dont want to spend money on something I dont need. Seems as if there are a lot of this brand with the same problem. I emailed Element and described the problem. Im sure they are quite aware. I just asked for a solution so I could watch my TV. Never go a response from them. Any suggestions or ideas? Sincerely, Joe keywizard1@yahoo.com

Power supplies are number one for going bad on TVs. I think it is worth replacing the part. Sounds like it is over heating and coming back on line when it cools.

SOURCE: power light comes on - but NO IMAGE.. Power supply / inverter???

At first my tv would work for about 8 hours, then the backlight and audio would die. The light stays green like it is on. now it will work for an hour before it does it. I'm guessing it is the related to this problem. On the viewsonic store they have the PSU board, However it is out of stock. If you can get them to send you the part It is an extremely easy fix. As soon as I find a power supply I'm going to see if works.

Unfortunately, that board is the inverter board. And for this model the inverter board is only supplied with the the PDP panel. The panel is quite expensive, here's a link if needed:

If the power supply outputs are good! Then I would say the back light inverter is bad! If the screen stays black and does not come on.

My sony big screne started shutting itself off and wouldnt come back on for several hours. Then it would power up and standby flash 7 times and after a few mins the picture would be gone but the sound...


On your tv you have cooling fans on the back side you will need to check to make sure that they are running. Lay your tv on the bed take off back cover (it's not hard) and used some air-in-the- can to remove dust from the back! If you need a fan go to Partstore.com (1-866-925-PART

Tv turns on w/pic then pic dissapears light blinks 4 times


I have the same issue, we've had to change our bulb three times in less than two years. now we have 61" expensive paper weight. Our current bulb is less than 6 months old. The TV is only 2 years old and like i said this is our third bulb.

the blue light blinks 4 times. you get sound. then a few minutes the the picture returns... then it goes out, and the cycle goes on.

A solution to this would be greatly appreciated.

Tv is on, after a few minutes it goes black and there is no sound. The indicator lamp is still green and stays solid the entire time. Without turning the TV off, in about a minute, you hear a small buzzing...


Someone else gave me the tip as I had the EXACT problem, but no buzzing. Unscrew the panel on the front bottom of the tv. Once that is off, there is another screw that opens a little panel. Unscrew the single screw with an allen wrench and pop out the bulb and casing. Mine was full of dust etc. Used an LCD cloth, but compressed air would do the same thing, put it back together and it works great!
