Question about Flat Panel Televisions

2 Answers

Television "locked" I was watching television last night and changed channels. all of a sudden, the screen went blank and it said locked at the bottom. I do not have the remote that came with the television, however, i use a universal remote that has always worked. I cannot get it to unlock. ( I don't even know how it locked, since i do not have the remote with the "lock" bottom on it. My 6 year old son pressed something on the remote control. The screen is now locked with a red key displayed at the left bottom corner when you try to turn on. When you switch off the TV, you see the beginnings of the normal broadcast displayed for a split second. I have taken no action other than try to figure out what to do with the remote. Can you help?

VX37L Screen Suddenly Went Blank, Now No Image, Sound Only on Cable Input, VIZIO Logo Lights Up


Hello,
turn on the set, grab a bright flash light and dim the lights in the room. Shine the flash light on the screen, if you see a faint picture on the screen, you are dealing with a backlight problem. There are several things that can cause this. One, a bad backlight inverter, two, faulty 24vdc power supply, three, bad main board, or a bad faulty backlamp.

We have a Samsung PS50Q91HDX Plasma Tv which is not quite 3yrs old. Ever since we have had it, it turns itself on & off at random but this is not the main problem. Last night we were watching a show...


This is weird. I also have a plasma 50" model PS5Q91HDX and on the 5/02/11 the screen went blank when my friends daughter was watching a Wiggles DVD. The image kept coming back, flashing a scene or two before going black again. But the sound is perfect.

I wonder what is going on? Is anyone else having trouble with their 3-4 year old Samsung 50" TVs???

Was watching tv( Toshiba Regza)and the screen went blank.


I have the same television and ocasionally the sound shuts-off, but I still have a picture.
What type of cable system do you have? What kind of converter box? I am trying to find out if it is the TV or converter box. I change the channel a couple of times and the sound usually comes back.

LG 42LC7D TV does not want to chg channels after 5 min of use


There are some inductors that are out of spec. LG's original SB said to replace some of these with a jumper, but it only lasted a couple months.

You need to have the Total Main Assy replaced.
