Question about Sanyo HT32744 32" TV

1 Answer

I JUST BOUGHT this TV from my mother two weeks ago.

It’s a brand new TV that she took out of the box less than two months ago. She sold it to me because she needed to buy a smaller TV that could fit her entertainment center. I get it home and it works fine for the first two weeks. Then I start to see a green color wandering around the screen. It seemed to of have lost its color balance or something. Then not even five days later, the other night I am sitting there and the picture turns into these wavy blurry dark lines. It makes it impossible to watch anything. My kids are angry with me because they cant watch their favorite TV cartoon that come on TV at 2pm. I have had my old Magnavox that I had for 15 years and NEVER ONCE had a problem with it. I wish that I had never sold it once I got this.

Is this the kind of product I can expect from Sayno?

I am screwed now because my mother think she threw the receipt out on accident. She tried telling me that she was going to return the TV she just bought so she could give me my money back. I could never do that though because she is struggling bad enough herself right now. So I told her that its working fine now. I have tried to get more hours at my job to save up and buy a new TV but I can only get 2 more hors a week at both my jobs. Now my rent has gone up another $30.00 a month. I have no idea how to fix anything internal like this or anything electrical, nor do I have the tools. I cant afford to bring it in to try to have it fixed wither. My kids try to cheer me up by telling me that they don’t need to watch their show anymore. It breaks my heart because they love coming home to watch that one hour of cartoons a day.

I am just do frustrated I don’t know what to do

I am just so devastated.

    I appreciate all of your information you have provided me. Unfortunately I can not use the warranty because the TV was actually bought three years ago when my mother was still with her boyfriend. They kept in in the box this entire time because they had his big screen to watch in their TV room. She finally took it out of the box two months ago when he moved out. She bought it to use in her basement one day when it was finally finished. Well her boyfriend up and left so she needed a TV for her TV room. When she realized it wouldn't fit in her entertainment stand she sold it to me.

    My friend brought over his TV set so we could see if it was a problem with out cable. His worked fine over here. So I am still stuck trying to figure out a solution.

    Any ideas are very much appreciated.

    Thank you

    This almost sounds like an interference problem; how do you receive your signal?




    Do you have a VCR or DVD player connected or that can be connected?

    If so, do so.

    If the color problems aren't there with a local (VCR-DVD) source, you are getting interference from somewhere.

    Check your signal connection on the TV's back to make sure screw-on connections are seated properly so that unwanted signals can't get into the cable past the shield.

    If you are on an antenna, you may have some source of interference in your own home.

    Without instruments, you can only locate this problem by disconnecting each device plugged in to the AC one at a time to find the culprit.

    If you do, then the set isn't at fault.

    Poorly shielded or ungrounded computers can often cause this kind of garbage for example.

First of all, if the set is only 3 months old or so, there should still be a warranty on it. The store where it was purchased should have a record of it and should be able to provide you with a copy of the receipt which you will need to get warranty service. Try going back to the original store with the TV in the box. There should be price tags or some other indication of the store on it. Request an exchange by speaking to a manager. Thay may exchange it for you.

It sounds like there is a problem with the power supply section of the set. This could be a defective part ot two that is a manufacturing problem. Try the exchange and keep us posted.

Sled4668w tv scans channals but always shows 0 found hooked upto dish network

This Orion TV made by Sansui was bought by me two weeks ago. It didn't last a week. The sound was terrible, picture was great, and it wouldn't hook up to soundbar without hearing a long delay in sound (A/V or Digital output tried two). I contacted their customer support twice, they were awesome. Told me this model has know issues and said to just bring it back. I found another TV for same price ($399) and same size (46) but it's LCD not LED, better picture and great sound! It is Insignia don't remember the model #. Bought at Best Buy (their house brand).

I would not suggest you try replacement yourself, as the sheileding on some Plasma TV's can be difficult to remove. You would be better off letting a reapir centre do it, at least you have the work gauarnteed. Try
