Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

Turns off every so often

My TV will work for hours some days, others not. It will go off and when you try to turn it back on, the green light comes on, but goes right back off, like it has to cool down, reset or something before it can be turned back on. At first it just went off, but now there are red and green lines that appear as it is going off and it is happening more frequently than it used to. Is it time for a new TV or can this one be fixed? Hi Guys Our TV is about 1 year old and at times it just shuts off. When this happens it comes up with a message "TV will shut down in a few seconds. Please check airflow". Our TV is however on a stand and was installed like this by Best Buy, with nothing preventing airflow. Your input would be highly appreciated. Andre Prinsloo Brooks, GA, 30205

Well guys I found that if one just reads the manual you may find the solution...Mine seemed pretty simple - the room temperature was too warm! I adjusted the heat in the house, the yellow Status light went off works again!

TV turns on then off no picture

this is very common. it is the power supply going bad. it should run at 130 volts dc. but it is now running much lower that this. just enought for the tv to come on. but not enough to power all the circuits right.

Green power light comes on, the turns right back off. No picture. Please help

I'm not sure what TV model you have. But, thing I can tell you is the most common problem.
Most of the time with flat panel TVs, the power supply for the screen fails. And the TV normally turns itself off to protect other parts in the TV from being damaged. Basically " Protection Mode".

You can try leaving the TV unplugged for 30 minutes so the TV can reset itself; then try again turning it on. If it doesn't work after that, it's time for the TV repair shop.

Sound but no picture - won't stay on

you may check your lamp first. other than that i would say a faulty mains board.

Mitsubishi WD-62827---PICTURE TURNS GREEN

I had the same problem. I deducted that if my TV worked fine for an hour or so and then the colors became bad (green, people's faces purple...), it must be a overheating problem. Simple logic, right? So, I picked up a few tools and a small vaccum and went to work.
I went first for the main source of heat: The lamp. Just a few screws, and I removed it. The lamp cage has a fine screen to prevent the dust to cover the lamp. Mine was covered with dust! And the fan behind the lamp was also covered with dust! Bingo!!! That's my problem! I cleaned everything and vaccumed all the air vents on the the back of the TV. I put the lamp back and checked that the fan was working. The TV works like new since!
Before you are out of a TV for days and spend an arm and a leg for a "Technician" to fix it (replacing expensive parts that didn't need to be replaced in the first place), try what I described above first. It's very simple and it takes only 15 minutes.
Since my TV is 2 1/2 years old, I purchased a replacement lamp. I know that one of these days it will burn out. I'll be ready and my TV will be working again in 15 minutes!
Since my problem was solved, I didn't go to the next step. There must be one or two other cooling fans inside the TV, but they must be working...
Good luck,

If this is a sony or mits it may be the subject of a thermal cutoff service bulletin. (I don't recall which)They have extended the factory warranty on these to cover this problem.
