Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. From what you have described it seems that the inverter board is fine so it is either the T-con board in the unit has gone bad and/or it is not getting the required 12vdc from the power supply unit. If you have knowledge of internal circuitry of the unit then you can open the back of the unit and check the T-con board which is the last board before the LCD panel. Usually it is available with the LCD Panel. All this is only recommended if you have electrical expertise & know how to solder/re-solder components as these units contain high voltages even when in off position. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

    Hi Rylee,

    Thanks for your quick response.

    There is a new symptom...the TV remote works only intermittently now...There is no response to volume or channel input (the on/off and volume controls do work with the cable universal remote). I replaced the remotes batteries and still nothing on power/volume, however, it will swich between hdmi and av input settings.

    Coincidental or a related issue?

    Thanks again for your help.

    I dont think its related issue rather it seems to be a different one related to your remote.

New Philips Televion dim and flickers


You should return the player because if it is dim and flickering than there is a miss connection in the play. It could also be that your tv is not compatable with that player.

Flickering screen


You may have a faulty inverter or defective CCFL lamp. A faulty CCFL lamp may have the following symptom: Screen flashes on and off or displays reddish pink hue. Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. Picture flickering and/or with dim display or appear black. Picture flickers on and off. All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replace the CCFL lamp.
To determine if the video card or the LCD is faulty, connect an external monitor to your laptop and power the monitor up first then the laptop, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight. Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight or a faulty inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp. Usually the CCFL lamp fails before the inverter.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

Picture on monitor is distorted


I went to the panel buttons, and then punched the reset for each of the icons on the menu. That restored the display picture to its factory settings. The degaussing did not help the picture, and any stray magnetism is generally automatically degaussed when the computer starts up. As to the flickering of the picture, that is because of the refresh rate. I am using a relatively updated operating system, and the refresh rate has changed somewhat. I also believe the temperature of the computer affects the flickering. I hope this comment helps someone who has a similar problem.

Mitsubishi VS-45607 Picture flickers and dims


It could be a bad solder connection that opens up as the set warms up. It could also be caused by a couple of bad capacitors, C2p05 (100uf/16v) Located By Ic2p01 and check C2c52 (10uf/50v) Located near Q2c51. A technican will be able to fix it for about what you paid for it I suppose.
