Question about Emerson EWL2005 20 in. LCD Television

20" digital flat stero tv moel CR202EM8

We purchased a trailer from Manteca trailer sales and the TV was a gift. They purchased it from the Walmart in Manteca, which is 2 plus hours away. We checked our local Walmart and it doesn't seem to have this model in stock. The problem with the TV is that the left side of the picture is purple and trying to adjust the color does not change the purple. What can you do for us?

    We have th same problem - the screen has a green cast to the upper left side. I noted that this could be caused by electronic devices near the TV; along with 90% of Americans, we have a DVD player and VCR near our TV. I unplugged them, no difference. I shut the TV off and turned it back on with these devices unplugged, no difference.

Another cause of the bad color could be caused by another electrical appliance to close to the TV. I have seen this condition caused by an alarm clock sitting on top of a TV.

It sounds magnetised. Is there a magnet near that side... like a speaker?

It probably needs degaussed. Many TV shops have a device that does this, at a cost to you. Also, the set degauses itself for about a second when it's first turned on after being off for a while. So it may go away by itself eventually.

Hope that helps...

How do I get channel with my Dynex televison?

Yes all over the air channels are now digital. Make sure that your TV is on the correct source. You can get a decent converter box at Walmart for around 20 to 50 dollars

Sound on my Samsung LN-T4066F flat screen tv just quit. What do I do?

options to consider: how old is your samsung,is it still in warranty and do you have the purchase reciept. If in warranty,that is your cheapest way out.
an aftermarket tv repairman will be at least 200.oo
ive see new 40 in apex reconditioned flat screen for 325.00
at walmart online,but not in the store where the price is higher. and with free ship to your local walmart and you can buy a extended 3 year warrantee which is not good if you loose the reciept.
do buy a plug into wall surge protector so that you dont blow out your new tv that you bought on a internet sale from walmart.

Sanyo DP42848 LCD TV purchased at Walmart, Mar 2008, cost app. $1000 now has dark shaded spots appearing on screen and getting worse. Research on internet shows this problem is prevelant with this model,...

This is common with new technologies when people are used to the old CRT tvs that lasted a lifetime. There has been talk of how manufactures are doing this purposely for repeat sales...but I have no proof of those statements from them. Your best bet is going with the BB and filing a claim, but those often get forgotten as well.

Best of luck in your battle!

2 year warranty

the Majority of problems on this and all other LCD TV's are capacitor problems the power pack needs smooth power to work correctly however the warranty should be valid and you need the proof that you bought it and you need to know who to contact about the 2 year warranty it may be Emerson you need to speak with not Walmart. I would contact them next(Emerson), or whom ever the third party repair service is that will cover the Warranty.
hope this helps
