    When I turn on the tv after about 20-30 minutes the tv flashes green. I noticed in the past that there was a hum coming from the tv. I have read that this is the color wheel, and also read that they are not making the color wheel anymore. I purchased the tv from Wal-Mart in '07. Hope you can point me in the right direction to get a replacement wheel.







    Thanks,

    DAN

    I replaced the bulb about 6 months ago and just now replaced the color wheel. I am still getting the green lines to come across the picture randomly and it is jumpy when I go to the menu screen. What next?

    I have the same problem with the picture going pure white and black for a few seconds and then going all black, only displaying sound, and then the TV changes channels by itself. If it were just the color wheel why would the TV change channels by itself?

Hi...the flickering and the green is the colorwheel going bad. Very common for this model and an easy fix too.

Is it hooked up with HDMI cable?

If so try unplugging the HDMI cable and re plugging the cable in, sometimes those cables work loose and if they are not tight, it will cause your screen to flicker. Happens to my TV once in awhile.

The flashing light opposed to a solid pwer indicator light usually means it needs to be serviced. I wouldn't reccomend home repairs, but repairs sometimes cost more than the product. You should compare prices and such before making your move.

Defective CCFL backlight may has the following symptom:
· Screen flashs on red/pink and off.
· Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal.
· Picture flickering with dim display.

All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp)

The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.
