Question about Flat Panel Televisions

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 have an element 37in. flx-3710 tv. lately whwn i turn it on the screen stays blacks and flickers for a few minutes untileventually the picture appears.however the picture is either washed out or so dark,...


ldq781, I think you or electronics technician should investigate the units internal "switch-mode-power-supply/cold cathode-fluorescent lamp electronic ballast circuit(inverter) for "failed" "swollen" electrolytic filter capacitors and or "poor quality" soldering of the electronic components to the copper foil traces of the printed circuit board(power supply board) The first thing to do is visit YOUTUBE for video clips of lcd monitors being repaired for these typical types of "failures" which are most common to both types (monitors and lcd tv's) After you do your research then return here and leave additional reply if you still need help. 12fixlouie

Element electronics LCD, was on for several hours picture went blank, sound is still perfect. 12 hours later still no picture when turned on, great sound though.


Typically this failure is due to the backlight inverter going out. On this model of tv there were two runs with different parts. Open the back of the tv and open the control box. If you see a large black circuit board on the top, replace that one. If its tan then you need to take out the control box and remove the black plastic backing. If you're looking at the back of the tv the inverter will be on the left side of the control box. Its a long skinny board that has 8 black metal squares on it. Good luck and be careful.

Vertical lines across my entire screen


My 42" Samsung Plasma HDTV HP-R4252 has a 2" vertical strip of green pixels down the right side of the screen.

My 3 year warranty with Circuit City expires in Nov 2008.. so I hope I'm covered.. can't call until the morning.

Samsung said it might be a logic board problem.. but they want almost $2000 to fix. I might as well buy another TV if Circuit City can't fix it.
