    Yes, the same thing here. The TV worked for about 30 minutes, we sent $25.00, and the TV to Alco Electronics (guess their name is Venture now) got the TV back and it worked for about another 30minutes. The picture is like thermal imaging and you can't make out what's going on in the program. I've put in another call (they are on holiday today 5/19) and don't know what to expect. I sure wish that Target would honor exchanging this TV but since we only use it at camp sites with full hook ups we weren't aware that it didn't work until after their exchange period had passed. I wouldn't suggest buying electronics from Target. Just beware.

Open the back of the TV,and look at the can shaped items on the board that the power cord is hooked to.If any of them have the tops,or bottoms bulged out,they need to be replaced.This should get it working again.So far I have fixed four of the same make,and model TV as this,and they all had either one,or two bad capacitors.I hope this helps.If you have any other questions,please let me know.Thank You very much!

Could be a bad connection that disconnects when heat in the system causes it to expand. Take to a pro or call manufacturer, they might have a recall or free repair available.

Westinghouse SK26H240S - Sound works but no picture?


There are two places to look for the problems, the backlight inverter board and the power supply. Look at the power supply first since it is easier to get to, look for burnt parts, bad capacitors, etc.

This is a pitcure tube problem, either you buy another picture tube and change it on your TV or if this is under warranty better to send it back to the manufacturer and have this one repair.

SV470XVT Vizio picture freezes


Hello, This seems more like an interface problem then a board issue. Which interface are you using Component Video, HDMI or , RF(F Connector)? If you are using the RF (F Connector) there might be a problem in the tuner including the RF and IF sections on the circuit board. If you are using HDMI there might be a problem in the HDMI Integrated Circuit If you are using componente video the there might be a problem in the video circuits connected to the RCA jacks of the Component video input. If I were you I would have the take the TV back to the shop and have these items checked out, because board swapping is not the proper thing to do. I hope this helps, Thank you, Shuttle83 http://www.electron-age-technologies-llc.com

All you can do at home is leaving the TV unplugged for one or two hours and see if this solve the problem.

If the unit has just been repaired, and it is faulty again, contact the service back and have the problem fixed.

Common faults on plasma TV can concert the PSU power supply board, the sustain boards, and other boards, wiring and connectors.
The testing and repair job must eb done by a technician.

LG 37 inch Flat Panel Loses picture


Take a camcorder and capture it, that should be enough proof that it's failing often enough to be repair right. When the picture goes out, can you see it dimly if you take a flash light to the screen? It might be a bad inverter.
