Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

Sony KP61V75 Last night the screen just went dark. When trying to turn unit back on, a slight flicker shows on screen, power light flashes for a few seconds and then goes out. When looking inside, the projection tubes are lit but real faint. Any thoughts? Thank You.

How old is this set please?

    It is failing right on time!

    My experiance is to not put money into a TV that is over ten years
    old. TVs stress out their electronic components worse than almost
    any other electronic product. After 10 years, there are so many
    parts that are ready to fail that your are probably wasting your money
    trying to get any more life out of it.

    Another option is to wholesale replace the main board from an outfit like Module Exchange at 972-298-1212

    Be careful on buying a new one though. Often times, these new
    technology ones are much worse. Always Google the model number of
    the set you intend to buy and add the word 'repair' or 'complaint' to
    see if it is one of the many models that are customer service
    nightmares being produced by even the most reputable companies today.

    Hope ya fix it!

Screen went blank and orange light is on


fiona_sheeha, If ACER warranty service not an option, then unit will need local tech to troubleshoot unit's power supply/inverter circuit for possible COMMON and repairable printed circuit board fix. You must read more of my fixya profile and visit the web links you find there so you will know and understand what ALL your options are!!! Some units require less than $5 in parts to refurbish them to working status. Your "cold-cathode-fluorescent-lamp" backlit LCD monitor isn't any different than any other brand of monitor in it's basic operating principles!! I hope this helps. 12fixlouie

Samsung SyncMaster 920nw suddenly went black now squeaks/flickers


The 920nw did have a 3 year warranty on the unit but they will be out of warranty now. The flickering power light is an indication of a failure in the power supply board. When the board fails it can't start up correctly and the power shuts down over and over so you get the blinking light and no display. This is a very common failure point on all LCD monitors after a few years of use. There are parts called capacitors on the power supply board and they filter the output power. When they fail the power is not properly regulated and the power supply shuts down and tried to restart so you get the flashing. Here is a link to a repair guide that will show you how to dis-assemble the unit and then what to look for and replace to get it back up and running again.

The repair guide has pictures and videos to guide you through the repair.
I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

The x-sus or y-sus panel wil be the fault.Check the fuses on these panels ,if one of the fuses is open then that panel must be replaced.Not verry cheap to replace.

The yukon NVMT 4 was turned ON and then flashed. Cover was on. Now the ON lights, IR Light works but visor is all grey and appear small lighting on bottom corner.


The scope may flicker or flash when used in a bright environment. To fix this you should only use a NVMT in a dark. It will restore itself in a few minutes or hours, depending on how long it has been exposed to light.
It may also flicker for the first several seconds of use in dark, before the device corrects itself.
With a severe exposure to bright light for prolonged time the light enhancing unit may damage beyond repair.

Sony KP75HW40 unstable red. (not the usual problem)


I would suggest either the Focus block or the RED CRT drive board either one of those items could cause the symptom. A defective CRT could also, but a shorted CRT doesnt usually go back to being normal

Power light flashing/ no picture


I have the same problem. The only way to get the TV to come on is to unplug it, but once you get it back on it turns itself off again in a few minutes.
