Do to the extreme difficulty in finding parts for LCD tv's and monitors, I need the number and maker information on the front of the inverter. It is a inverter problem and I am currently working on a magnavox with no suppliers anywhere. Hear is what they look like.
http://www.pchub.com/uph/model/0--7839-1/QPWBGL945IDG-parts.html
The inverter board is Sampo QPWBGL945IDG LCD and if you click on the photo to enlarge you can see the Sampo number.
Being a 15" like I am working on a universal one may work for you.

First lets see if we can find your inverter. Please give me the info off the inverter and we can go from there. Be careful taking it apart, get organized and keep everyone away. Set your screws in different holders so you know where they went, take photos- this helps great when taking stuff apart if you cant remember where everything went. You will need to purchase some metal tape found in the auto dep. at walmart or Lowe's. When you take the screen apart you will see what I mean. You have to cut the tape , the inverter will be on the back under a metal shield which the inverter will have 3 plugs [ maybe more ] but I am thinking it has 2 tubes, one on the top and one on the bottom. Any way, look at this site and it will give you an Idea on how to get at the inverter.

Even though this is for lcd monitors the principal is the same so lets get it fixed - but I will need the number off the inverter, this should get you started to take it out, it is a good Idea to replace the cfl's also, they have about a 33,000 hour [ about 3 year ] life. That is a little more risky but we will get into that later. Please send me the info and we will help all we can on getting you up and running!
Take Care - The best of luck

When we turn our TV on we get sound, but our picture is distorted for about 15 min then it's clear. Any sug?


Your TV is about 5 years old.
If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life of your monitor or TV by several years.
Check the cables, connectors and connections.
Take it to a repair shop.

TV won't stay on


I would suspect either some capacitors failing in the power supply, a bad solder connection, or a component drawing too much current. Replacing the power supply may fix it.

New TV 9 mos old, Won't stay on after power up? Remote or manual turn on, set keeps turning off after 1-2 second green on and brief screen flash.


I would try leaving the TV unplugged for 30mins so the TV can reset itself.
If that doesn't work, your TV should still be under warranty. I know 95% of come with a 1 year warranty.
The most common problem with Sylvania TVs made by FUNAI, the Backlight Inverter board fails to early in life. ( That's the part that powers the screen)
The Tv can't power up the screen and it turns off automatically. Basically called "Protection Mode" so it protects the other parts inside the TV.

Black screen after 1-2 minutes.


Hi, I just fixed one I bought on eBay with the same problem. My problem was caused by the screen backlight inverter. Fortunately I had one from another TV I bought last year on eBay. The repair only took about 15 minutes. Your best bet is to contact Funai Corp. and really complain even if it is out of warranty. They make Emerson, Funai, Symphonic and Sylvania and all the parts inside are the same (from the same years). If that don't work look on eBay for one with a broken screen or some other damage, call your local dealer and see if they have the inverter from a broken TV or ask around. We have a freecycle group in Michigan that recycles things rather than throw them in landfills you may have one in your state too !
Good Luck,
