Question about Sylvania LC320SS8 32 in. LCD Television

2 Answers

Invoice 55393 I was sent a potential solution to my problem but it was one that I had already tried and had stated this in my original posting. I have not heard anything more. Is a solution coming or am I up a creek without a paddle? Since I have not been provided a solution will I get by $9.99 back? Steve

    Ken,
    My son got a Jumbo Universal Remote Control for my in-laws for Christmas. They have a Sylvania 20" LCD TV (LC200SL8). The Jumbo remote will not do anything to/for the TV. I tried setting the remote up using the manufacturer's instructions with no luck. That is when I went searching on the internet and found FixYa. The potential solution that Johnychel had sent was one of the methods the manufacturer had included in their programming instructions. When method A, i.e. using the programmed codes for Sylvania televisions did not work, I tried method B. Method B is start at 0 and keep pressing the power button until something happens. I did that for 205 tries with no reaction from the TV. I would like to know if there are any other solutions out there that might work so that this remote will work for my in-laws.

    I have the Sylvania (actually Funai) LCD color TV model LC200SLB(or is it 8?). Our remote has started to fail (some buttons don't work anymore). Cannot find a universal code that works anywhere. Have tried hundreds.

    And....if you call the manufacturer's 800 number.....they don't give out the codes! What a crock! I even got a remote that will read another remote, but it just does what the broken remote does.

Received an email with an address for a website that has the manual. This was of NO help to me as I have the manual and have used the published codes for my TV. Thanks for trying but it did not help.

Can replacing the power supply board on a Philips LED TV (Model 39PFL2608) potentially fix a solarization problem? I've already replaced the main board and it's still solarized on all


Please contact the authorized service center for Philips. After replacement of the main board, a firmware update, is necessary. It is a skilled work. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

Tip

Before posting this type of sensitve and "hazardevous" tips performance must ADD...


Well, those of you who have no idea why a Screen Voltage (technically known as G2) adjustment may interest you, here is a photo of a bad adjustment (too high).

8914ffc.jpg

You may also experience smeared colors… this is caused by a low adjustment. To correct this, we need to get the back off of the TV. It would be a good time to unplug it if you have not already done so. Next we locate the FBT (Fly-Back Transformer).

be30da0.jpg

This is a 20” model and it has 2 knobs. Your FBT may vary, as some slim designs and some large tube models may have 3 knobs.

You will need to look closely at the knobs; they will be labeled “Focus” or “Screen”. On units with 3 knobs, there will be 2 focus knobs and 1 screen. For now, we will be working with at the Screen knob only.

0007e62.jpg
d784a76.jpg
With the adjustments identified, we are ready to plug the TV in (including your standard cable connection) and turn it on… BECARFUL!!! For the rest of this adjustment, we will be working inside of an electrically charged TV. We also need to normalize the picture, so go into your TV menu and adjust the Picture and Brightness settings to the middle or center.

If your TV normally displays a black screen when you do not have a signal connected, ex: Video input 1, then this will be the quickest and easiest setup for you to use. However, if you are not so lucky, you may need to bust through your DVD video collection and find a “between scenes” shot that you can pause on to give you as black of a picture as possible. Eliminate as much light in the room as you can (just remember, you still need to see what your doing)… we want a good view of the screen without the interference of ambient lighting.

Once you have your black screen all set, we are now ready to proceed to the adjustment. If you have lines on the screen, see (HIGH)… if you have color smear, see (LOW).

HIGH: If you have some lines in the picture with a washed out appearance, your Screen voltage is too high. You will need to turn the Screen knob on the FBT counter-clockwise. Do this slowly, until the lines are no longer visible. If you still have a small amount of illumination coming from the screen, back it down a touch further until this just disappears.

LOW: If you have smeared colors in the picture that seem to trail of the edges, your Screen voltage is too low. You will need to turn the Screen knob on the FBT clockwise. Do this slowly, until you just see some lines zigzagging top to bottom on the screen. Now, you will need to turn the Screen knob on the FBT counter-clockwise. Do this slowly, until the lines are no longer visible. If you still have a small amount of illumination coming from the screen, back it down a touch further until this just disappears.

The final set, switch the TV input over to your cable input and check out the picture. Take a good look at some bright scenes and dark scenes. Do they look ok? Adjust the Picture and Brightness in your menu… can you set the picture to your liking? If so, you are all set. If not, double check your work (remember to normalize the Picture and Brightness setting).

feab016.jpg

If you are unable to adjust the Screen voltage as described above, you may have a High Voltage problem with your TV. This will require a repair and is not covered by this tutorial.

If you are all set and the adjustment is good, we should have a quick look at the focus adjustment. Return the TV to your Black screen setup. Press the TV menu button to give you nice fixed display to focus. Adjust the focus knob(s) until you have the clearest picture. It’s important to balance the center of the picture with the corners of the picture. If the center is too sharp and the edges and corners are blurry, it is not a good adjustment. Do your best, you are the final judge of your work here.

35fa2ea.jpg

Once you have finished the adjustments and verified the picture with your cable picture, you are ready to close it up and return the TV to normal service. Unplug the TV, replace the back cover… enjoy!

I hope this was helpful. If you benefit from this tutorial, please leave some feedback.

I need a replacement screen for my LNT4665F. Where can I go


I have a replacement screen shipped directly from Samsung with original invoice. We ended up not using it. I am going to post on ebay shortly unless you would like to buy direct. The invoice says, "this part may be new or reconditioned" - so I am assuming it is reconditioned. The invoice amount is $546.00. I will sell it to you for $175 plus shipping.

HDTV does not work


I do a lot of warranty work for different brands; most companies have a 3 strikes and it gets replaced--same problem 3 times and they exchange the set; only people who get on the phone and go up the chain of command get what they want---if you take no from the first several people you talk to(their job is to not exchange sets) you will get nothing---if you persist and talk all the way up someone at some point is going to do something--exchange the set or make a permanent repair--at the least they should extend your warranty--if the repair is documented in a shop for 3 or more times for the exact same problem I would try for getting the set exchanged--do not take no for an answer---the person who annoys them and does not give up gets attention.

IF this was helpful I would appreciate a vote here--I do this for free.

Company not standing behind their warranty


Hi, I hate answering these type of questions because what you need is legal advice rather than any repair type of advice. If it was damaged in shipment and the receiving company did not report it the carrier doesn't want to assume responsibility. You really need some legal advice about any remedies that may be available to you. Sorry about your situation but this is the best advice I can give you! Good Luck!

They need to replace both sustain boards along with the power supply and the logic board. These are the common 4 for a LG/Zenith dead plasma that popped! Good luck.
