Question about Sanyo DP42848 LCD TV

2 Answers

This may sound very strange, but in the middle of the night, my 42" Sanyo Full HD lcd TV turns itself on! The screen is dimmed and the red light is on (not the normal blue light when it is actively switched on), but the sound is on. I have ensured that update is switched off and that there is no timer switched on. Is this something that requires repair under warranty?

Yes.

Please replace the Main board. It handles all the signal processing, and can cause automatic shutdowns and turn-ons.

LG LCD 42" sound but no picture


From this web site it says:

Powering Off
  • Many LG LCD television owners report having a problem with their televisions where the screen powers on, but then lasts only a few seconds or a few minutes before powering itself off again. The problem usually occurs with brand new televisions, and in this case is inside the television itself. If your television is powering off unexpectedly, contact LG so it can be serviced.

My 42" hd Sanyo flat


chances are your backlight inverter circuit has failed, repaired one a few months back with the same problem. To verify this, take the tv in a dark room. plug it in and take a bright\ flash light and shine it on the screen. turn the set on, you should see either the screen saver or video from your source. If this is the case, your inverter is at fault. Depending on your model, your backlight inverter is built onto your power supply board so you will have to replace the power supply/inverter board. Not hard to do, you can do it yourself with care.

I have a red glow in the middle of the screen and the color is dim. It has been gradually getting worse as the year has gone on. Is this a bulb issue or a convergence issue?


Hi,
This is light engine issue, light engine produce image and project it front screen of TV.
I'm afraid light engine replacement would cost you much, $1000 plus, check with local tech for estimate.
Thanks.

It is a failure in the light engine itself. You will need to have it replaced. Here is a link to that rather costly part. http://www.partstore.com/Part/Hitachi+Ltd/Hitachi/50V500/Hitachi+Ltd/Hitachi/UX22201D/New.aspx
