Continued question on Skewed picture and loss of control functions.
Would the loss of the controls also be a sympton of this issue? I just want to make sure that I do not have a power of other type of error / failure that may be in common with both symptoms; the skewed picture that is gone to b/w and the loss of the controls. It bothers me that even though I continue to have good sound that the controls will not allow the set to change channel or volume or to turn the set off.

Not all the time but yes I have seen it happen about 60% of the time with the DMD board going bad. But it is possible that the DMD board is not the only problem your TV is having. The digital board (another board in your tv) can cause both these problems at the same time too. It is something that needs to be troubleshooted. But this info will narrow it down for you.

My D5000 does not seem to respond to controls. Can I reset the camera?
In extremely rare instances, unusual characters may appear in the
monitor and the camera may stop functioning. In most cases, this
phenomenon is caused by a strong external static charge. Turn the camera
off, remove and reinsert the battery, taking care to avoid burns, and
turn the camera on again, or if you are using an AC adapter (available
separately), disconnect and reconnect the adapter and turn the camera on
If the problem persists, turn the camera off, open the memory card
slot cover, and using a paper clip, gently press the reset button by the
memory card slot. ( NOTE: This will also reset the camera clock. Also
note that disconnecting the power source or pressing the reset button
may result in loss of any data not recorded to the memory card at the
time the problem occurred. Data already recorded to the card will not be
affected. In the event of continued malfunction, contact your retailer
or Nikon-authorized service representative.

Background of issue- When 4345/M4345 boots up, amber light comes on under start button and the message "Initializing Scanner" is displayed. The unit will print but will not preform any scan functions.
Steps taken to try to resolve issue: 1. Updated firmware 2. Restored factory defaults 3. Took off cover in back of printer covering scanner controller board and reseated all cables 4. Took apart scan unit and cleaned (2)mirrors in scan head 5. Took off back cover of unit, reseated cables coming from scanner controller board 6. Ran Scanner Test, in menu (which everything functions properly)
Usually I would say scanner or controller board has failed but I had 3 M4345 come down with this issue in one week. The only resolve i've found for this issue is repetitively turning on and off the unit until it comes up without "scanner initializing" message. Once it comes up it functions 100% until the unit is turned off and issue will come back.
I'm at a loss here with so many units having same issue, open to any advice. I once took the formatter out of bad unit and put it in good one and it caused the issue in the good one but i'm double verifying this tonight. Thanks for any help.
I would like to post a Sony statement here, hopefully you can reply with a good word. Examples of Software Correctable Symptoms Always check the Sony Technical Support site for any known and listed issues that are software related. Most symptoms that are correctable by software updates involve communications issues with other devices or minor glitches in the operation of a specific function. Below is a list of some of the symptoms that may be corrected with a software update: • Fluctuations in picture brightness • Intermittent picture freezing or noise • Problems with certain inputs (especially HDMI) • Intermittent or distorted audio • Erratic remote control operation • Unit turns on and off by itself • Loss of color • Internet connectivity • Certain features not working correctly
in your tv there is a light engine ballast.that light engine ballast controls the colour /picture quality.that engine is got faulty and that needs replacement.if the picture with distorted also looks dim then there is a lamp that also needs replacement with lightengine ballast.but if the picture is distorted but bright then no lamp replacement only light engine ballast.
this is very costly issue to get replaced.near to $350 plus the service charge of the technician who replaces the component.
thank you for using fixya.
