Re: television problem

The shadow mask inside the Glass Tube probably bent. Not reversable if this is the case with your set. Regards JUS004

We have a Samsung DLP about 5 years old. We noticed that the fan or some sort of hummning sound was coming from the back louder than normal while TV is on. Then suddenly the picture would start to freeze...

This tv have a colors wheel,hear loud motor noises,humming noises,squiling or grinding noises,have pictures black and white.All these causes are by the colors wheel is worn out, warp rubbing against it motor or fiber plastic glass briddle about to brake aparts.Don't turn this tv on anymore until,u change the colors wheel or u will damage the projection engine.The colors wheel are hard to change for amatur and hobiest.Because involved taking out many machanical parts,before even can come to the colors wheel to take out and change it.The best course to to hire a Tv do this job.The price colors wheel part and labors.Awhile back was about $500-550,now??

Water spilled inside 25'' Sanyo will not turn on

The water has already done its damage. Try leaving the set unplugged and drying out for a few days then try it again otherwise you will most likely spend more to repair than to replace.

Dropped tv 5 inch on its face while moving. Tv

It is highly probable that the main board is cracked due to the drop. An experienced TV repair person can run jumper wires across the cracked board. You can verify this by opening the back of the tv up and pulling out the main board and search for cracks on the bottom of the board.

My tv fell and I think the sensor is ruined. The remote now won't work. The plastic isn't broke, but I think sensor is broke as the tv fell on it's face.

most of the time, the circuit board cracks around the remote sensor, when there is a fall like this. the TV will have to be taken apart to check this. Do you have that capability?

"snow" screen, full volume, remotes don"t work

good day
due to the long time the buttons were not used, they tend to get stuck and this causes channels eighter to stay in one station or continou scanning. it could be resolved by spraying WD40 on the buttons and press it many times then dry it before operating the unit.

Nothing but snow

Your explanation about a different TV receiver working OK on the same aerial connections leads me to believe you have lost the tuning in the faulty receiver...
Just "snow" with no sound is a classic response for lost tuning....
It shouldnt have lost the tuning as there is a small battery(capacitor) that holds the previous receiver channel settings when you turn the TV off. But as you have had the Receiver in the back of a truck and disconnected from the power supply for some time then this is probably the culprit....
This battery (Capacitor) may be getting old and has lost its capability of sending a minute amount of current to the tuner IC (Chip) hold your previous channel settings...So if you can retune the receiver to the output from the Dish Network Receiver you should be fine again, but if the battery is shot you need a new one....or just leave the Receiver in the standby mode for a couple of days to re-charge the battery (capacitor) up.
You will need a service technician to replace this small battery (capacitor) its a special type made just for your receiver....
Hope this helps

Yes, it is worth repairing. Replacing the F connector is a very simple thing, and as long as nothing was forced into the hole left by the missing F connector, the repair should run about $40.

Son dropped TV

Chances are is that the actual screen inside is broke, so that the laser cannot display the correct colors in the right spots. First talk to a TV repair guy, but he will probably just say to buy a new tv.
