Picture Fades Away

Over the last several weeks, our Big Screen TV's picture slowly fades out. The volume is still there and we can still hear the programming. At first, it was once in a while, but now it is constant and coming in spurts about every couple of minutes. We turn the TV off and when we turn it back on, the picture is there and then it starts again.

We bought the TV about 14 years ago from Montgomery Wards who is no longer in business. It is a Bell Howell 52" Big Screen.

The color on my Advent TV fades in and out of the picture, and goes to black and white Why


The problem is in the picture tube board circuit. Sometimes the CRT socket doesnt connect well to the CRT pins. Or maybe there have bad solders from RGB transistors. check those transistors, Also the bad thermistor discolored the entire tv screen.

Our wharfedale lcd tv ( model no. Lcd3210hdaf ) ( serial no. 5958796 600196 ) picture fades out after about 5 minutes as if someone has got the control and press minus on contrast or fade but it does it...


Loss of backlight on an LCD television will give you this type of symptom. Since the picture fades slowly, there's a good chance you may have a cold solder connection in the power supply going to the inverter PCB. Cost of the repair from a service center should be from $120-200

My Vizio LCD TV screen fades to dark. Sound stays on.


I w having this same issue when watching a Blu-Ray disc. I found it to be dependent upon what picture mode the TV was set to. By this I mean certain picture modes would cause the TV to dim during dark scenes of a movie. Changing the picture mode helped a lot.

Picture slowly fades,then comes back and repeats


Stacy,

Sounds to me like there is bad solder somewhere on the filament supply circuit. Do you know what a cold solder joint looks like? It is a solder joint that is not making a good mechanical or electrical connection. When you lose that connection the filament inside the tube slowly stops heating the electron guns and the picture will fade away. When the connection comes back the video will come back.

Might be worth it to take the back off and check out the little board that is connected to the end of the tube. The problem is either there or on the power supply.

Shouldn't be a problem for a repair tech. I would not spend very much money though.

Picture comes on then fades to blue


Check the info from this website to see if you are able to fix your TV. You should turn the blue screen control down slightly counterclockwise. If that did not work, then more likely you have a video amplifier IC defective or a blue CRT.

Picture fades to black then reappears and repeats fades to black .


Is the sound ok. Yust the Picture. If both dissapear replace power supply board. That is the main big board with the most heatsinks on it. Main power gos from a switch board to main power supply.
