Element hdtv flx3210 shuts video off after a few seconds.

I purchased the Element hdtv model flx3210 in novembers black friday sale from circuit city and the tv sat inside its box for several months.

Today my wife at last sold the old CRT tv set and we un-boxed the new Element hdtv and we watched it in happiness for all of five minutes with video/audio signal being fed by regular cable via 75 ohm scrwon connector.

Anywho after five minutes the screen shuts off and the audio is still heard and we pressed buttons to change channel and the audio changes but still no video.

The button on the front stays blue.(the one that turns red when you shut the tv off).

On the rear of the 32 inch Element hdtv we noticed a blinking red led goes on as soon as the picture from the front cuts off.

What to do since the tv is brand new and we never tested it to see if it worked since we had extra CRT tvs around the house.

Send the set back for service.

The power supply most likely failed, or another circuit board has failed and the set is in the protect mode.

I would consider to see if the dealer would exchange the set for a well known quality brand name set and pay the difference.

    That was not very helpful Jerry. How about a component level solution instead of a general broad answer? I hope you didn't get paid for this generic answer.

I tried to register my new Element Electonics 40" Model - ELDFT406. Says model # doesn't exist ? Also having trouble getting the tint setting.


so you shouldn\'t bother too much with it. I have the same model and it shuts itself off whenever it chooses to. I\'ve only had it since the 23rd of November, and it shut itself off after 2 days and maybe being on only 6 hours in those two days. It shut off the other day after 40 minutes. Read the reviews on Target\'s site, most people have issues.

On Facebook, the manufacturer said they would be adding this model to their site within a week, and that was around the 26th of November that they said that and it\'s still not on their site yet. I got mine at Target and I have 90 days to return it, so I\'m going to wait until TVs go on sale around the beginning of Feb and return it.

Screen goes black after a few seconds of being on. audio works


After it goes off do you see a very faint glow on the screen? If not then this is definitely a case of faulty backlight inverter board. Replacing the same would resolve the problem. Also order the part by part number only as each model can use different versions of the same model. If you need help loacting the part number on the board, then let me know

I am having the same problem with my Sony. I bought it at Circuit City in November 2007 and the extended warranty, which I thought was for 4 years, has expired. Has anyone else had this problem, and how did you resolve it?

SAMSUNG 50" HDTV rear projection. Watching TV. Then picture went black; voice remained. Front on-off button flashes "timer lamp". Cannot turn off unit with remote. manual on-off button...


Problem was a burnt "lamp" which can be easily removed. However, it is not the type of component you can purchase at Circuit City, Best Buy or other electronics stores. It must be ordered. I found a few websites to obtain replacement lamps. Cost was $159 plus sales tax. Some websites charge for shipping. I ordered this part from the following site which provided free UPS second day delivery: www.dlplampsource.com. In order to make sure you are ordering the correct part, you must remove the device first which, in my case, had a model/part/code number.
