Question about Sony WEGA KDE-61XBR950 61 in. Plasma HDTV

3 Answers

Screen on and off

Hello, the TV turns on fine (picture, sound ok) but after a few minutes the screen goes dark and the sound is gone. In another few minutes both the picture and sound are back. This occurs over and over. Any ideas? Your input would be really appreciated!

HI,

I don't think you did any damage. It is probably not hooked up properly.

Go back and check all connections and cables.
You may have caused an internal open connection or cold solder joint to quit. Do a little banging on the set with your hand or fist to vibrate it enough to scare a poor connection back to work!
HERE ARE FEW MORE TROUBLESHOOTING STEPS YOU CAN TRY:

ONE: Check the line cord. Wiggle both ends near the molded part.
TWO:Do a hard reset by unpluging all the cords for 4hrs and then plug it back.

THREE:The whacking test is to just bang or smack the set with your hand on the back, side, top, etc., to see if there are loose connections or cold solder joints inside that are acting up. If so, the banging should knock them back to normal and the set should restore. You might have to use some creative banging and some have had to put a book or magazine under one corner to torque the chassis enough to get it to work reliably.

If the problem still persists then like i said before,you will have to get it repaired by a technician.

Goodluck,

18 month old LG 43" LED TV. Screen goes dark, but can be seen if you hold a flashlight up to screen. Sound is fine.


The inverter supplies the voltage to activate the screen. There are usually 2 boards, a slave and a main board. Sounds like one of them is leaking voltage and causing the screen to go dark after the initial start up. Make sure you didn't joggle something loose while you were replacing the power board check all connections. GL

I have a Vizio VF550XVT1A. First problem was a flickering screen that ended with the TV turning off. I replaced both invertor boards and the TV seemed to work fine for a few weeks. Now the TV works fine...


Good day sir Alfred!!!!

If your screen turns to back after a minutes but the sounds is normal..That problem is very common to all flat panel specially to LCD TV..

OK,I need to know first if your TV having a back-light when the picture went out after a minutes.If that so the possible problem is T-CON board (this board is the responsible to produce a video on all LCD TV)..

If you don't have back-light the problem is inverter board again..But before you order or install new inverter board try to find why the inverter board gone only on few weeks after you install it..the possible problem why the inverter board faulty for the short period of time is higher/lower input voltages (24vdc) comes from power supply..try to check it using volt meter or multimeter tester..it should be read 24vdc on meter..let me know if the voltage drop or higher to 24..

If the 24vdc is fine the only problem is the condition of inverter board maybe its used or partially faulty when you buy it..

if you have more queries and clarification regarding my solution please feel free to reply on this tread...

Hope it helps..

Thanks for using fixya..

It was working fine then no picture dark sceen sound work fine


More information is required. Your backlight is lit (screen not dark) but I need to know what you have connected to the TV (your sources) and how they are connected. Does the menu/OSD (on screen display) work?
