My TV will just go off  - when you try to turn it back on, you get an EOI code.

    One of our client's has the same set with the same problem. We followed the previous poster's suggestions and checked the power supply board for bad solder connections. Our tech noticed several problem areas,but nothing really bad. He touched up anything that looked bad and we put in back in place. 
    I will post the results after a month or so of use. 
    Thanks for the tip! Hope it works

I found this possible solution in another forum - I really hope this will help you out twister50... As an electronics design engineer this sounds as if it could well be the cause of your problem... Good Luck!! - Rob UK

I had exactly the same problem with my 503HDE. Screen would randomly shutdown and display E01.

In my case I believe that the cable was not at fault. The power supply in the media box looks like the most likely culprit.

I dismantled the media box and removed the LARGE power supply board and checked for dry solder joints. Sure enough, where the heatsink was soldered onto the board the joints were in a bad way. I reckon this is a symptom of the fact that the media boxes for V3 Pio's get very hot - all that expanding and contracting is likely to create dry solder joints. Taking the box apart shouldn't be a problem for anyone with a reasonable level of IT type skills!

I resoldered the joints and (touch wood) I've not had a problem for over 2 months. Whilst I can't guarantee that this is the definitive fix for this problem it seems to have worked for me. I'd be interested to hear if anyone else finds this cures the E01 problem.

Not being a hardware engineer, my only doubt is why the heatsink is connected electrically to the circuit board. Would this be for earthing purposes or perhaps to do with temperature sensing? Not sure about that - screen completely off - rolleyes.gif

Hope this helps someone - six grand is a lot of dosh to write off!! __________________

Samsung DV3 tv only shows static. I'd unplugged it to put in another room. Now back in its original place with correct connections. How can I acquire code for rc unit?

Try searching online for the remote owner's manual using the remote's brand and model number. The owner's manual will have the codes you need to reset your remote. Check out Remote not working for more tips and solutions.

If that's not the cause of the static on your TV, your next step is to troubleshoot TV issues. Check to make sure your TV is set to the correct channel, generally channel 3 but in some areas channel 2 or 4. Also call your service provider to make sure it's not a service outage.

The problem could also be an issue such as disconnected or improperly re-connected cables, as well as problems with the capacitor or backlight. For more causes and solutions, check out this handy troubleshooting checklist in TV black screen or snowy screen. I hope this helps!

Hi gud noon.just want some advice i have a problem with our tv sanyo flat screen if we try to turn it on it only appears blue screen theres no picture....thats our problem... we try to call already the...

  1. Try changing the input on the TV to see if the Blue screen goes away. Can you access the TV menu on the screen? If so, try running a channel scan until it is complete. Then check if the blue screen is still there.
  2. Disconnect any RCA cables, or other input cables from the back and see if you still have a blue screen.
Here is the link to Sanyo's Support site:

Just purchased Xbox 360. Have everything hooked up to the TV as per instructions. Nothing comes up on the TV. Anyone know why to help me out? Thank You, Jerry

On most TV's nowadays you have to put the TV into Auxiliary or Aux mode. Most TV's with that Feature have a separate button on the TV itself, and/or on the remote control marked Aux, or Video, or Game or something to that effect. Usually you know its in that mode by a completely blue screen, or completely black screen.

Also, recheck your connections to make sure your Video and Audio inputs are matching the color coded input ports in the back/side of the TV. In a poorly lit room its very easy to fudge the connection color-codings. Also make sure the cable is firmly connected to the back of the X-Box and that the Selector switch is set to Standard Defition-TV if only 3 of your Composite cables are hooked up. Or if all of them are plugged in and you have an HDTV, that the selector switch is set to HDTV.

Rca 52 in rear projection... start up menu always on

The setup menu will repeat until it is completed and/or something is hooked up.

On my TV it kept reoccurring until I connected up the wire from the roof antenna, even though I had cable already installed.

Check your manual for setup instructions or if you do not have one, Google the make, model number and "owners manual" to see one online.

Hope this helps. :)
