The TV has electronic components that have changed value due to heat. A reputable local tech should be able to handle this repair.

    The constant heat change inside a set can sometimes affect the solder joints. The question here is whether or not the TV will return to previous behavior once it cools off. If so, then odds are that there are poor solder connections inside. Also there are cases where some of the filter capacitors fail. This can cause excessive noise on the data lines inside which effectively "confuse" the set, I would get a repair estimate for this from a local shop. If it is poor solder joints, then the repair should be a simple one of labor only.

    Keep us posted,

Pull the tv apart. carefully lay it on its face and remove 70-100 screws( no kidding) You also have to remove the speaker and plastic on the bottom, theres more screws hiding under there.

Look over the power board. Its the board in the middle. There are several capacitors on there that are well known for failing. I just bought a vp322 that was dead. I replaced about 10 bulged or leaking capacitors and im back up and running. If you google vizio vp322 you will find posts and pictures of the common failure with this unit.

You can get caps from mouser, digikey, bdent, or if you want cap kit where the gathering is done for you, theres a guy on ebay that sells cap kits for these tvs.

Best of luck!

The green light flashes for 2 minutes and screen goes light blue

You have a defective power supply, most likely faulty electrolytic capacitors on the power supply board. The board can be repaired, I fixed one for a friend, it took 2 new capacitors $0.90 each.

LG TV Turns itself off

Sounds like it could be a poor connection in the power plug or a ' dry joint ' on the power board, if it's the latter, it will respond to light thumping at the side of the tv. If that's the case it needs resoldering by a technician..
good luck !

I have a Hitachi Plasma TV model 55HDS69 that recently went black while being watched. I turned the main power off and unpluged it overnight and tried turning it back on, but only the red standby light...

Do it again, only this time unplug any video and audio inputs and outputs, unplug it from any power source, and leave it sit overnight.

I had the same problem with my Hitachi. I called a local repair shop and he said to unplug it for 10 minutes and start it again. That didn't work so I got it ready to take to the shop. I disconnected everything. The next morning I decided to check it one more time so I reconnected everything. It worked just as it had before.

I hope it works for you.

Monitor Black, Green Power Light Flashes Monitor is 4 yrs. old

Assuming you've already checked your driver and system settings, tried a different monitor, and checked the cable and connector pins, this would almost certainly be a problem with the power or signal circuit board inside the monitor.
