    soldered connections didn't work. TV is not actually shutting down, we just loose picture and sound because I can bring up the menu on screen from the Mitsubishi remote control (not the direct tv remote control). Can change to play DVD but still no picture until we turn the tv off then on again. When playing a DVD from video 1, same thing as when we are watching tv thru Comp2 with Direct TV, at randon we hear a pop and screen goes blue and no sound (except screen goes dark when watching from Comp2) Have to power off the tv then power on for picture to go back on. It doesn't matter if tv is playing from Comp1 (direct tv) or Video1 or Ant A - At random still loose picture and sound, Green light in front of tv stays on - Have to power tv off then power on to get picture and sound back on. When turning the tv on for the first time during the day is stays on the longest (30 maybe 45 minutes or so) then when it starts going down the duration it stays on can be for 30 seconds or 5 minutes or 1 minute (when it looses picture it is at random, but it happens every time we turn on the tv).

    i have the exact same model and i have the same exact problem no blinking light or anything. for me its just a black screen but the tv knows when you have a signal going to the inputs. the reason i say that is cause when its gets real bad, a blue screen with purple lines and a high pitched whine, show up. and a error message(of a sorts) saying check power and connections. you mess with it a little, and eventually the tv works(for a short time). ive studied the tv, and the projection or screen part itself, works every time, cause you can access the menu. its like the inputs and outputs short out. you do hear a "pop", like a short would sound. if you could call it a short. And it is totally random. it does seem worse in the evening. i havent taken any steps to fix it or anything, right now im just trying to learn the random symptoms. ive never seen anything like it. i dont even want to take it in to get it fixed, its a monster. are there other options even? i know it may sound stupid but maybe trade on a new one?

    I have the same problem , has anyone figured out how to fix it? My picture will go out more often the longer the set is on.

    tv will play fine for about 30 min then theres a pop and the picture goes blank and is replaced with a dark screen with purple rolling lines. when i power it off and on set plays for a bit and then cuts off again. also get the msg, check connections or power. the connections for RGBHV or YPrPb may be invalid.

Hi again,

What might look as tight might not really be. Have you re-soldered most of the major solder joints/connections?

Our power was out for over twelve hours last night and I don't know how to reset it. It tells me to refer to manual but I can't find the answer. SM272

If you can find a pdf of the manual, most pdf readers have search functions that may make it easier to find what you're looking for. Search for "clock" or "time." Try to find a manufacturer's website for the pdf, rather than some random site that may have pdf's with embedded malware. That said, you can test your downloaded pdf by going to

24inch Bush smart TV/DVD not working.

The main power supply regulator section circuit fault. Either it will be a separate board, or the part of main board. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.

Black screen, green light on the bottom is on, electric plug is on house plug, no picture, was working fine last night, now only black screen!

Do a hard reset to this set, and then check. If it do not help you, check and replace its main digital board. It will be faulty.
There are two methods to reset TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight is better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts.
Service mode entry, adjust and exit procedure to many popular brand TVs are given. Never forget to exit the service mode, after all adjustments have been done.
