Picture problem the picture clarity is fine but after the set is turned on for a short time(30 sec)the sides of the picture will collapse in towards the center of the screen for a second then return to normal.It repeats this every few seconds.The top and bottom of the screen remain normal when this happens.Could this be a horazontal hold problem that can be fixed with an adjustment or is the problem more serious?

Lcd tv light flashing but no picture or sound

If you removed power by turning off power itself to the set instead of turning it off by turning the set itself off---that is not a good thing to do.

When power is restored a surge can and likely hit the power supply in your set---time for a tech or shop to open it---I suspect they will find the standby or main power supply is damaged or now bad.

Model KV35540 Series #9017817 goes to standby after 30 sec

OLD set, most likely the picture tube has aged and only hope would be if the master screen inside the set is turned up just a little it may function again. If doing that (taking back off) be careful and also look in neck of the picture tube to see if the 3 filaments are faintly lit.

Only chances are no filaments or screen set too low from old age.

When I turn the set on green leds appear for about 30 sec then it swicthes to red stanby and flashes 5 times intermitently


May I know what is the exact model number of your TV, it is located at the rear cover, manual, and on the receipt. It will help diagnose accurately where the fault came from and confirm the blinking error code.

Picture goes to a single horizontal line.

Your problem is due to failure of the vertical scanning circuits in your TV. This is quite common and is caused by aging components. Generally drying out capacitors
You got to be careful not to leave it on too long when the picture collapses, it will burn a permanent line across the screen.
If you are an electronics expert you can fix it if you get a schematic. If not please don't attempt to reapir it yourself since there is high voltage in side the TV.
The problem may get worse with time.

Turn power on, approx. 30 sec later it the power

It varies as to what is actually making the TV shut down. Shorting the connectors on the A.C. plug have nothing to do with it turning back on. Its just the fact you are unpugging it for a few moments.

One of the power supply areas are most likely going intermittent. This can be from cold solder connections on the circuit boards, or from some components failing due to age.

An experienced tech should be able to service your set, but it will be expensive for the time involved. Sometimes these types of faults can be very time consuming to resolve.

No picture

Self test: Turn on and Press the input and menu buttons on front panel together and hold for 5 sec. after 5 sec the power LED will blink a 2 digit seq. This will let you know what error code. Count the first blinks then a short pause then the second blinks. Example 2-3, 3-4, 4-1. Let us know what it is.
