I need to know what the model number is it will be printed on back of TV.Also have you removed back to Look for Vented or puffed up on top capacitors 1000uf 10v /16v, 470uf 25v ,2200uf 16v ? If you see any that are vented they are bad, another thing is that you may just have poor solder connections and the boards need to be resolder.

When turning on tv. screen will display Bravia image & then go blank. red light flashes SIX times

Power off the television. Wait a few minutes, then power it back on. If this does not correct the issue leave the power on, point your remote control towards the Sony television and hold the down arrow button. While holding the down arrow button press the "Power" button. Release the down arrow button and the Sony TVicon1.png will reset itself to factory settings. Once the television performs a scan on itself your problem should be gone.

Samsung LN-S4051D slow to turn on.

You are likely to have a module bad....part number BN94-00864A and if you take it out (unpluggs) you should inspect it for capacitors that may be domed or pooched up at the top. If so they should be replaced first before getting the module as the capacitors are about $1.00 each. Do a search for Samsung parts online if you need the module and call them toll free

TV does not show picture when turned on. Some times it does not come on. when it does it goes to a split Bright green screen, After that it will go to a lot of different screens with lines, full screens of...

It is possible that TV processor could have some garbage it do to a small voltage surge, and if you leave your set, unplug from the wall for 40 min,. that will reset it back to normal. If thgat don'rt work then remove the back and check for a couple of bulged electrolytic caps on the power supply nthat need change, or change out the power supply.

TV Turns Off Automatically While Watching

Stop trying to turn on the set. You are causing more damage. The hissing sound you are hearing is either a High Voltage Transformer on the SMPS (Switched Mode Power Supply) indicating a short somewhere in the set or some capicitors that have shorted out. Also there can be a CRT that is leaking cooling fluid onto the Main bd or the Power/Deflection bd or both bds. Have a trained Samsung tech troubleshoot the set.

Conair steam cleaner sc20 - plugged in, pushed button, no steam

If you need instructions go to There are videos for GS4 and GS10 under Appliances category. It says that steam is produced in about 5-6 minutes after you turn power on. Also there is a low water indicator light on GS10 that kills power to teh unit if the water level is low. Maybe that's the problem... Not sure if sc20 is similar

Sony FWD50PX2/S 50 in. Plasma Television power problem

It does sound like a power supply problem but that can be misleading because a problem somewhere else in the TV can be "holding down" the power supply. This can usually be determined by using some isolation techniques.
