SOURCE: sylvania 42" flat screen won't turn on

First you should check the fuse and the wiring in your tv by removing the back cover. Make sure no wires are bare or touching. If there are any, wrap them with electrical tape.
If you cannot see anything wrong by looking, then it is probably the set has a bad transformer (high voltage)

SOURCE: samsung 42' plasma tv,screen keep flashing, blurry,no pics

I'm not really sure what causes this but I might be able to help.
I have an LG 42 plasma which had the same problem. In my case I removed the video and the tuner board (they both were mounted on the same frame which was screwed on the tv chassis) and installed them in a "wooden box" so that there would be no electrical contact with the rest of the chassis except from the cables connected to them. It now works fine.

SOURCE: Menu Screen Keeps Coming up on the screen

The most commom causes are One. There ia a stuck button on the tv itself. The Menu button. The membrane switch or the TACT switch is bad and needs to be replaced. The Main bd can also be bad.

My 42 inch sylvania hdtv screen is broken and not showing a picture


If the display panel (PLASMA DISPLAY PANEL--PDP) is damaged or broken etc it is fatal as the cost of the part alone will exceed the cost of a new set.

The setup menu keeps flashing on the screen and I cant' get it to stop also the remote control is not working


Reset your TV. Unplug it from AC mains, and pulg it back after 5 minutes of so. This must make it a hard reset. If this do not help you, contact the service center.

I have a toshiba flat screen 42 inch. i went to change the channel and now all i have is a white screen and no sound


Hello
The tuner card in your TV is not working I thinks. Anyway set the TV to its factory defaults. It will make all the setting to factory levels. If this also didn't helep you, repace the tuner card.
To restore the TV to its factory setting:
[1] Press Menu and open the SETUP menu.
[2] Highlight INSTALLATION and press ENTER. A new set of installation menu will appear.
[3] Open the SYSTEM STATUS menu. Hilight the SYSTEM INFORMATION, and press ENTER.
[4] Press [ => / [5] Enter your PIN code (or 0000 if no PIN code has been set).
OK

THE MENU KEEPS POPPING UP ON THE SCREEN CONTINOUSLY ON MY 42 INCH


I had an LG 37" LCD that did this to me. Turned out to be bad solder joints on the side button board. Just reflowed and it starting working fine.

But now that I think about, I had another set do the same thing, only it wasn't the button board. I had to upgrade the TV's firmware via the USB service port. Just needed a USB flash drive and downloaded the firmware from the mfg's website. There were easy to follow instructions there too!

New TV 9 mos old, Won't stay on after power up? Remote or manual turn on, set keeps turning off after 1-2 second green on and brief screen flash.


I would try leaving the TV unplugged for 30mins so the TV can reset itself.
If that doesn't work, your TV should still be under warranty. I know 95% of come with a 1 year warranty.
The most common problem with Sylvania TVs made by FUNAI, the Backlight Inverter board fails to early in life. ( That's the part that powers the screen)
The Tv can't power up the screen and it turns off automatically. Basically called "Protection Mode" so it protects the other parts inside the TV.

Sylvania SRPD442 no picture


Your problem is probably in the power supply as theres a voltage called the sustain voltage that is always keeping the screen charged so the address lines will activate the screen and make it light up Via the Microprocessor and the video processor. This is not a repair for a handy person as this set, you can cause more problems Please seek out a trained tech for this set. Good luck
