Are you sure you have it hooked up to the tv properly? Maybe you accidently put a yellow in a white spot and a white in a yellow spot.

I have a 42" Sampo-PME42S6 plasma TV. Its been running perfect until yesterday when it started to show lines and picture degradation after approx 3 to 5 mins of running. I thought it was the cable box...

You can try a hard reset: Unplug TV from AC mains and remove all cables from TV. Wait about 30 minutes and replug to AC power and redo the cabling. Switch on the TV and see if it works.. this not work check the cable try yo use another pair of cables ,even this did solve your problem then you need contact the company if under warranty ,if its out of warranty then you need get service from local TV repair center....

Good luck..

Laptop screen has gone blank

I assume that your laptop's display has been damaged. Are you sure that other things are working normally? If other components are working, then problem will be with the display unit. Try to repair or replace with new one.

We purchased our DVD player about 3 mths ago and everything was fine, then about a week ago after the kids were watching TV and went to record a show the DVD turned itself off. Now when we turn on our DVD...

If you only purchased it 3 months ago it should still be under warranty.

Just bring it back to your place of purchase for a refund or exchange.

I purchased an rca rlc1906 19" tv 2 months ago, worked fine when i turned it off last night, when i got home from work tonight i tried turning it on. but all i had was good volume but had no picture,...

Same RCA RLC1906 LCD T.V.
"Same problem"; working normal shutoff, and never came on again; just white screen.Took off back cover to inspect "CAPS"... all looks good.
To this point only thing that seems odd is resistance varies 50ohms between diods D5, D6, D7 on main power supply. On another note
our tv was supposedly a refurb yet considering that fact; I closely inspected all three circuit boards, and none show any signs of repair, meaning everything appears new, original. If the capacitors are blown it should be pretty obvious by swelling or leakage. I don't see any of those obvious signs of heat damage. Diode's don't appear shorted when reversing polarity but D6 specifcally tests just over 600 ohms, all others test just over 550 ohms though I believe they are all suppose to be identical value. Perhaps that helps but I am going to try replacing diodes first and retry as it does seems power supply is also connected to video input/output which I would think is inverter board!

We just purcased Toshiba 26AV502U, now the screen is blank

Heard back from Toshiba. They said to unplug the TV, wait at least 3 minutes, and then plug it back in. This should allow it to reset itself. Sounded too simple, but after doing just that the tv has worked fine for the last three days! Toshiba noted that if this didn't resolve the problem we should contact them to have a Toshiba Authorized service person come check out the tv. It worked for us, hopefully it'll work for you too. Good Luck

Screen goes completely out.

when it blanks out, tuen the lights out in the room, and shine a flash light at the screen, see if you can see the picture, if you can, it is the inverter moard blamking out, thats the board that lights the back lights, if you cant, hit the input button on the remote, if the TV comes back with a picture, it is a problem with the main board, in paticular the componant input on the main board

How to hook my sony VAIO to TV via HDMI

Hi there Dream,

There is a toggle function for switching the display. It cycles from normal to external to both.

You are looking for one of the F-Keys (Normally F5) should have a little rectangle between two vertical lines. It's supposed to be a monitor.

To cycle the display, press the Fn key (near the space bar), then the F-key. Your standard display should go blank. To get it back, do the same thing.

If your TV still displays nothing, Check which input its using.

This should get you going.
