    Unfortunatelty this did not work, the tv works fine for about 2 hrs and than again the screen goes all pixlated and hazy than if i keep it off for a couple of hrs and switch on again it becomes fine for some time.

    Called a couple of tv mechanics but they are too costly.

This is most likely due to 2 problems -Temperature or a bust capacitor,

1. There is a simple trick...just warm the back of the TV with a hair dryer for 5-7 mins after you have unplugged the TV. Look for the little areas of holes in the back panel of TV. Use these as your guide at where to use hairdryer., but don't hold the dryer too close(say 5-6inches away). (Make sure the dryer is on High heat). If the TV doesn't turn on after you have heated it up (like it tries to come on but then turns off) you need to unplug the TV again, this resets it. And repeat those steps till it works. Reseting the TV after it fails to turn on is the key. Also, just leave the TV on. Don't turn in off. Since it is LCD, it doesn't take much power...only a few bucks extra a month for your utility bill.

2. You can also try this..if you unplug the TV, and hold in the power button while plugging it back in, this will reset the TV, and sometimes it comes on.

3. If you want to go in for a long term solution, you can easily replace the whole power board (should be about $20 or so), or just change the faulty capacitors. You can make out which are faulty, because their caps will be swollen on top. Here's a pic

Check the specifications of the faulty capacitors, and get the replacements from your local electronics shop. If you are comfortable with this, you can use a pair of needle nose pliers to G-E-N-T-L-Y pull out the defunct capacitors. Once that is done, solder in the new capacitors carefully. If are unsure how to do this, try to get a friend who knows how to do this kinda stuff do it for you.

PS. The capacitors are usually 680 - 1000 micro farad and 35V. however, if you dont find 35V, you could use a 50V as well. They will be slightly larger, but you should be able to get them to fit in.

You can buy the capacitors online from HERE or HERE if you wish..They cost $0.068 - $0.85 each depending on the model.

Hope that helps...Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.

When the picture is dark, show a torch light on the screen from a safe distance. If you can see the picture, the backlight is the problem. Anyhow, it is better to show it to a qualified service technician.

Tip

Diagnosing a LCD blank screen problem.


Recently a 3 year old VIzio TV I bought started having problems. The set would turn on normally for a few seconds then the picture would go dark with everything else operating normally including sound. Remembering a similar laptop computer problem I diagnosed previously, I immediately suspected a defective TV screen backlight. To verify this in your own TV, get a very bright flashlight and with the TV operating in the failed blank screen mode, shine the flash light into the blank screen from various angles and distance (including touching the screen). If the LCD is still operating, you'll see a dim motion in the flashlight's reflection, thus proving it is indeed a failed backlight.

Black spots blocking picture on plasma TV


Main board is likely the issue or worst case is a defective main screen called a display panel. Voltage checks will not usually help with this type of problem since it will likely have to be traced with a scope.

3-5 years is average life on this type of set and Philips is known for parts at that age becoming unavailable............

HI I have 60" Sharp


Im sorry to imform you but there probably isn't a solution for this. you see with an lcd if one of the pixals goes out more of them start to go out. I know someone who bought an lcd monitor for there pc and when they took it home one pixal was out for the pressure it was under when they shipped it. she turned the monitor off and later back on and there was a line on here screen. then she turned it off and back on and it was a bit larger till she had a line all the way down the screen. she was able to take it back to the store for a new monitor but the next one did the same thing. it wasnt till her 3rd or 4th one that she finally had a good working one. anyway theres no way to get those pixals back if that is what it is.

im sorry about your television.

i hope this has helped if you need anymore help just reply.

So it's no longer under warranty.... right? The problem you describe is control by a 'digital' driver IC (integrated circuit chip) which has apparently developed temperature problems.

Blurred picture, after some warm-up it back to clear picture


If the problem doesn't return after the picture becomes normal, then it could just be due to the electron gun taking longer to fire up. I don't know how old your TV is, but TVs older than ten years typically take longer to warm up than more modern sets.
