Question about Loewe Articos 55 55" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

TV turns off after aboiut 2 hours of uninterrupted play

I think this could be a "fan issue" - but what do I know! The TV can be just fine and then suddenly (and after 2 - 3 hours of play) shuts off. I can then "re-set it" with the button on the side and it will come back on - but continues to shut off every 20 minutes or so. I bought a cheap fan and put it behind the TV and this seems to help - which makes me think it's overheating in some way. Suggestions?

    I have a similar issue. I have already replaced the bulb. I do notice that once it shuts down it does take a number of seconds longer beofre the picture returns.

    There are two fan areas in back that get dusty and cause the set to overheat.You can take off the covers and clean the filters, or carefully use your vacuum cleaner hose with the brush attachment to vacuum the dust out of the filters without taking the covers off to stop the over heating.

There is a software patch availabe to increase the thermal cut off temperature. Can only be programmed using the Loewe Cablemax kit. Another solution is that the fans at the back all blow into the tv, reverse one of these fans, this gives a flow through the cavity. Remember to remove the filter from the one you reverse.

U have a thermal/intermittent issue. Given the age of the set and fact that other areas are now going, I think the cost effective way is to replace the set.

My tv will play for 1 or 2 hours then the power turns off bye itself then after 20 or 30 minutes it can be turned back on what couses this?


Thermal issue for sure. I would try removing the rear cover and place a fan that blows on the boards to see if it keeps running. If it does then you can isolate the component that has a thermal issue with component kool. But try the fan trick first, then if you need assistance with using component cooler properly let me know and i will assist you on it.

Red light comes on but then the tv is playing but after about 3 hours it just goes out but I can still hear the sound then if I go back after about 4 to 5 hours if I turn it on it plays no problem. Now the lamp just went. I think before replacing the lamp maybe I should replace cooling fan also.

MY NAME IS PHILIP I HAVE SHARP 32'' TV THE GREEN LIGHT KEEP FLASHING NO AUDIO OR PICTURE


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. If the TV isn't turning itself on then the fault protection circuit has detected a fault and has turned down the TV. The blinking indicates a fault. You'll need to check various things to find an answer which part is bad. Please check these---

1. Check for signal cables at the back and also try unplugging the TV for 8-10 hours to reset it.

2. Swollen /bulged capacitors on the power supply board-- This happens due to overheating of capacitors.

3. If the capacitors are fine then you'll need to check for connectors on all the boards and also the fans if they are working fine.

4. Make sure the lamp connections are fine and ballast is not burnt.

Note-- Please make sure to turn off and unplug the TV for at least 1 hour (this will drain off current from all components especially capacitors) before you perform any repairs. Also note that the TV consists of very high voltages even when it is in OFF condition, so please be careful.

Try to reset the TV by unplugging it for 6-8 hours.

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks

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,

I replaced the power supply with one from an online salvage store and it worked fine for about two hours and then it shut off, turned it back on and then twenty minutes later off again...repeat... need an electronics person to trouble shoot and trace which resistors and or capacitors are overloading.

After watching HDTV the tv will not switch back on when left for a few hours.


i'm afraid i have no solution for you, but i thought it might help to know that i have the same problem, mine will sometimes take up to half an hour to turn on, while i have to sit and listen to the clicking sound, and watch the power led flash on and off! YOU ARE NOT ALONE!! sorry i couldn't help though.
