    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.

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.

Hourglass picture. Panasonic CT-35G30T The picture is hour glassing from the sides. Starts to flicker back to normal after 1 to 2 hours. Getting progressively worse. Takes longer time to reach normal...


This is caused by bad solder connections in what's called the pincushion correction circuit. Some of the transistors get quite hot, and over time the solder connections to the TV circuit board become intermittent. When you tap the set, it causes them to make contact again so the picture is normal, but then it goes funny again. Resoldering the connections would take care of this problem. I would suggest calling a professional in to make the repair, which would cost far less than a replacement TV.

Hope this has been helpful, and thanks for using Fixya!

Symptoms are not related,what you hear is the high voltage turning on and that is normal if it only does it for less than a second,the grainy picture might be intermitant,dont turn it off,when the picture is grainy tap the side of the set to see if it racts and if it does you know you have a loose conection.This could be outside because of a loose ground on tha cable or inside in the tuner.

Initially No Picture when Turned on but sound normal and 5 minutes later Picture is all RED and then Picture becomes NORMAL (all normal colors)


theres a high voltage block that all three of the anode leads attach to and sometimes a small crack happens across this block and will not let some or all of the crt's get the high voltage all at once untill it heats up a bit. now if this is not your problem i would make sure that all three crt sockets are attached to there tubes all the way as maybe justy maybe there loose and will only work after ther expand a bit. Now another problem that could cause this problem to occor origially would be that someone left off a crt ground strap and the crt arched and popped and caused the problem with the High voltage block. And no I cant see a tube being bad then comming on at first UNLESS when you say the red comes on is the picture all red with small retrace lines(small white lines)in the screen with no picture except for red???? No video only a red blank screen is what i mean. If thats what its doing then yes Ive seen heater to cathode shorts on a picture tube that would cause this problem but to be sure your really gonna need to have the set looked at.. Good Luck
