Grundig tv M72 - 100/8a

This tv has worked very well for five or six years and now has developed an intermittent problem.

When left on for some time (over an hour) it starts to flicker. This becomes more frequent until it is impossible to watch. The repairers at first thought it was a loose connection and did some soldering but it remains a problem and they have given up with it. They say it is not worth the man hours trying to locate what is probably just a loose connection.

The flickering is about 3 or 4 inches from the top of the screen and the tv actually turns itself off and then on again after a second or two.

Any advice would be helpful. Should I just get a new tv - shame because its a great picture.

SOURCE: Mitsubishi VS-5041 50 Inch Rear Prorjection TV No image but there is sound!

After 11 years???? OMG This set is a tired pup and should be put to reast. My experience with older sets and your complains are all capacitor problems and is only gonna get worse as the first time around repair will take several capacitors to repair. This set has no user serviceable parts inside so you should not attempt a repair suchj as this on your own.. This repair if you decide to go through the first time will be About 300 to 600 bucks the first time and cost will continue to raise till the sets put to sleep. Good luck

SOURCE: my tv screen goes green and then turns off by itself

I connected a digital set top box last night and it screwed up my RCA 31" tv. It now has a green screen and is permanently damaged. Pretty hard to belive but painfully true. Anyone else?

SOURCE: LG LST-5100P set top box. Several times a day have

cap-grant, my friend has the same problem with set top box. When I phone maker I was told it is due to poor and weak signal. You must have 80% signal strength to maintain good picture. When signal strength dropped picture would freeze and had to be turned off at the power point to restart as nothing would work. So I guess what my experience says is you may need better aerial to boost signal and prevent dropout Leonard210

The TV tries to start up but just can't. It has been an intermittent problem happening about 4 times in the past 2 years. Don't know why it then starts working again. Help please.

This is its power supply regulator problem itself. If any resistor [used in the start section circuit] has developed high value, or has a loose solder terminal, this could happen. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here.Pull up older posts.

I have a toshiba flat screen TV about 2 years old. The annoying problem is that in the middle of NCIS the characters are talking but I can't read lips. Missing the audio happens five or six time

I have noticed a similar problem and after reading a circular that arrived through the post, I am beginning to suspect it is being caused by the new 4G mobile phone networks.

The circular offered a free filter to prevent such interference.

Left tv unplugged for a few months no tv won't turn on

The first thing to do is try to turn on the set with the remote and then when it doesn't respond go to the set and hold down the MENU and INPUT buttons at the same time until the power LED starts blinking a two sequence code. Like 2 - 4 or 1 - 2. The code will keep blinking for five or six times and stop. The blinking is the microprocessor telling you why the set is not working. We techs call that a self diagnostic function. Which this set has. Just repost your findings.
