    TV will come on, stay on for about 1 minute then the lamp shuts down, set goes off (audio/video) power led blinks. Stays dark/mute for about 1 minute and starts back up, solid power led. Cycle repeats.

Possible bad lamp, ballast, or cablebox/sat box. First does it do this on all inputs? If so its in the tv. If it only does it on you cable box or sat box then its the box most likley. If its in the tv the most common problem to cause this is a weak lamp. other than the lamp the only thing i have seen is the ballast. Good luck let me know if you need anything else

Thank you
Tim

No picture, siren type noise as restarting


My Toshiba dlp 62hm116 was used for 3 months then stored for 2 years, I turned it on yesterday and it makes a loud grinding noise which I think is probably from the exhaust fan area and the picture is black except white at both vertical sides. It worked fine the last time I used it 2 years ago. Any ideas?

Sony Wega kdf-50E2000 Keeps turning off and on


Before you replace the lamp I recommend trying to clean/dust the lamp component and lamp plug in area. I had the same problem and was able to resolve it by simply blowing the dust off the lamp components and fan. Use a can of high pressure air to get into the cracks and crevices.

Help! Toshiba 51H84..Power light flashing, tv picture won't come on!


First thing that needs to be checked is the convergence IC's. Those IC's are located in the signal board and are really hard to remove. You need an experience technician to fix it for you :)

We have sound but no picture i have sound but no picture. when you change inputs the word input is doubled up and distorted


There were not much info in the manual but it did suggest trying this.
1st- Unplug for a few minutes and then plug it back in. Or use the reset button look it up in the manual. MANUAL

2nd- Blank screen troubleshooting

• If you're trying to watch TV, change channels or press the ANTENNA button to switch tuners.
• If you're trying to watch something that's playing on a component connected to the TV (like a DVD or a VCR tape), press the TV
button on the remote, then press INPUT until you get to the correct video input channel.
• If you're trying to watch a component (like your DVD player or VCR), make sure the component connected to the TV is turned on.
• If you're trying to watch a component (like your DVD player or VCR), make sure the component is connected correctly.

Post back if non of these ideas work and explain if there are any lights flashing or changing colors on the front where the green light usually is. A fixya rating would be appreciated, thank you for stopping by Fixya!

Green flashing light - no picture


If the green power light is blinking and you have no picture, then your light bulb has burned out and needs to be replaced. It is not a cheap bulb to replace. If the TV is less than 1 year old it should be covered by the warranty
