15PF9936/12 Flat TV

I get a picture for a few minutes then the picture disappears and I am left with only the sound. Then after another few minutes the sound goes also and all I am left with is a blank screen.

    In my case I get sound but no pictures. Philips tech support was useless.

    I tried unplugging the power adaptor leave it off for 20 secs (resetting). Sometimes that works, other time it does not.

I had this problem on my 42" Philips. Just got it yesterday and worked fine on the tv stand. As soon as I mounted the TV to the wall via wall mount system, I had the exact same issue you did. Figured it out today.

The wall mount was putting pressure against the center of the back of the tv (tv set had a slightly rounded back plate, and the mount was a flat plate). As soon as I put spacers (part of the wall mount hardware set) between the wall mount braket and the tv so there was no contact except at the mounting holes, the tv worked fine.

My theory is the pressure pushed the tv back plate against some board components which caused them to overheat (no air flow); or put pressure on internal connectors. I dont know.

Hope this helps, may not apply to your situation.

Check the small fuse on the underside of the board that is the high voltage drive for the CCFLs

TV works fine for a while, then the picture disappears.

I would just replace the TV, the parts are not going to be made to repair this. The set is just to old.

Picture loss!

It sounds like cold solder joints on the vertical IC chip. Not a major deal. The entire board should be looked over for other joints becoming cold.

Very faint picture but sound is fine on my 50" Zenith plasma

Sounds like the Z-sustain board went bad. You will need the board replaced so make sure you find an LG authorized servicer.
