Re: tv won't turn on

Unplugging overnight resets the TV.
convergence ic are the most likely gone bad
however it could also be
that you lost power regulation....or you have what seems to be excess Hi Voltage or arcing
Now the regulator could be at fault or your SENSE line could be falsely triggering due to a change in a resistor or zener diode or even a bad sense line from your splitter...
Convergence amp ic bad

Why does my Mitsubishi WD-65737 TV go black for 4 or 5 seconds then picture comes on again with the top left corner says "Cable Box".

Replace service cords, as they might be getting worn and loose. It does sound like that to me. Bad coaxial cables

The best and the only solution to fix this problem is to call a tech and get it serviced or if it is still under warranty just get it replaced.

Few troubleshooting steps you can try:

1)Do a hard reset by unpluging all the cords for 4hrs and then plug it back.
2)The whacking test is to just bang or smack the set with your hand on the back, side, top, etc., to see if there are loose connections or cold solder joints inside that are acting up. If so, the banging should knock them back to normal and the set should restore. You might have to use some creative banging and some have had to put a book or magazine under one corner to torque the chassis enough to get it to work reliably.

The tv sound works all the time when turned on but occasionally the video either does not come on or goes of while watching it.

It is usually a vertical deflection circuit problem. Here's the basic troubleshooting:

  1. Make sure that no front panel buttons are inadvertently stuck in an "engaged" position.
  2. Press MENU button. If a small horizontal line appears at the center of the screen, you have lost vertical sweep on your TV. The protection circuit shuts down the picture to protect the tubes from burning a line across them. The intermittent problem may indicate a loose solder. Try resoldering the vertical output IC. The IC along with the B+ feed resistor back in the sweep power supply is most probably bad or has a loose solder.
  3. Press the DEVICE and MENU buttons on the front panel simultaneously and hold it for 5 seconds to activate the Error Code Operational Check. The status LED indicator will then flash denoting a two digit code.
  4. Count the number of flashes then pauses for about a half second then flashes again. The first number of flashes indicates the first digit of the error code and the second number of flashes indicates the second digit of the code. For example, if the error code is "24", the LED will flash 2 times, pauses, then flashes 4 times. The error code is repeated a total of 5 times. Error 24 indicates a vertical deflection circuit failure.
Please let me know the code you'll and I'll tell you where the problem lies and how to fix it.

Sony WEGA has multicolered vertical lines

OK, much as I have reservations, let's try service mode. To enter service mode, you MUST have the original Sony remote. You need to press these buttons in order, with the TV off. You have about 2 or 3 seconds to complete the series of buttons. Press:
#5 (the 5 on the number keypad)
Vol + (volume up)
Then, after the screen is lit, press the "jump" carefully 3 times. If the word "penle appears in the upper left corner, the optical block is OK and it's probably a Q-box problem. It COULD also be the LVDS cable that sends the signal to the optical block. If you press anything else, IMMEDIATELY TURN THE TV OFF AND START AGAIN. The TV should reset to the original values.

Plasma tv screen goes black once you turn it on. Only sound

I have a panasonic TH-42PX60U plasma TV. When I watch TV programing I have no problems, or with the DVD input. But if I switch to another input, be it video game (PS2) or vcr the screen sometimes goes black and the red power lcd light next to the power switch flashes. Holding the power button in for a few seconds will shut down the tv. Then I can turn it back on and it may operate normally again for a undetermined period of time, before the screen goes black again. This never happened when new. The tv is about 1 year old. Any ideas on this problem? Thanks Ernie

5. Press and release the VOLUME DOWN & CHANNEL DOWN buttons simultaneously on the TV. (A blue service menu will appear on the screen).
6. Using the remote, press the DOWN SELECT button once. (The highlighted line should read INDUSTRY INT (+CAUSE) OFF

TV Picture Goes Black

I had the same exact problem.
I removed the bulb and cleaned it. There is a small screen at the top of the bulb and it was covered with dust. Once it was cleaned I replaced the bulb and it solved the problem.

Problems with green arching lines

yes there is a small black box with 6 controls on it, take off the bottom front of the tv, behind that you should find a black piece of plastic you can remove by taking out 2 more screws. the black box should be in the upper i don't remember if the top 3 are the screen controls or the focus controls. the rows should be labled, you are looking for the screen control row. the green control is the middle one. you can try turning down the control till you no longer see the green lines. try adjusting in a dark room, it will be easier to see the lines & when they are gone. if you problem is not solved by trying this, then i agree with your tech & the green tube is bad. good luck.
