    Ours is also under two years old. The back says it was manufactured in Sept. 2006. We bought it in Nov/Dec 2006.

    Being a TV addict, my husband went out and bought a new one for me. Wal-Mart has a 32" Emerson for $498. We bought the extended warranty for $30. It looks really good and the sound is amazing even without a surround sound system.

    We bought our TV in Oct / 06, and we are having the same problem, there is sound bout no picture, just a flicker of light. This TV also has very few hrs on it, what is very upsetting to us is that we live in Canada and bought the TV at Walmart, and are being told now that because this TV is American it is very hard to get replacement parts for it here in Canada, and if we do it will be very expensive to repair. I feel this is definitely" a buyer beware" scanario for people living in Canada, and we feel we should be compensated some how through Sanyo. The TV is at the repair shop now designated by the customer support personal we phoned, we are awaiting their response then we will see what other action we will have to take, too much money to just throw in the garbage!!

Owners of this set should file complaints with <> for Sanyo (located at 21605 Plummer Street Chatsworth, CA 91313-2329, as there are several). They are failing at 1-2 years, and are toast when that happens. DP32746 fails before a tenth of the useful service life has expired. Research indicates this model is prone to inverter failure at about one year of operation on average and that the failure is systemic in nature and is experienced by a large number of owners of the product. When the product fails it is rendered completely useless and repairs are prohibitively expensive.

I made a complaint to the BBB and through them and Sanyo the repair was arranged with me paying for labour. All in all it cost me 152.00 CAD.

Most of the problems with these lies in the Inverter or signal main PWB's. I am an authorized tech for Sanyo, and in the Chattanooga TN area. Contact Sanyo at 1-800-877-5036. At the prompt hit the 0 key, and then ask for customer service. They will be more then happy to assist.

Sanyo should be compensating everyone who bought a TV of this model within the past 2 yrs, seems that is the timeframe from which the problem lies. If you still have your sales reciept, return it to the place of purchase, and there should be no qualms, if Sanyo wants to continue with good public relations, they will either replace or repair!!

I have not been able to find the 3mm x 711mm backlight(ccfl's) anywhere on the net. That is the size of the ccfl's in the backlight assembly. There are 16 individual bulbs and I suppose if one goes out they all will not come on. IMO, I will never buy a Sanyo again. The tv was less than two years old with minimal hours on it.

No tv picture

Start by making sure that all of the set-top box cables and cords are firmly connected and that the set-top box is turned on. Also, check to see that the TV is set on the correct channel and that the DVD player is not on.

If the power light is flashing, it could be a problem with the voltage of that the capacitors are malfunctioning. In this case, it's best to contact a professional for help.

If you hear a chirping sound, that is the shutdown circuit activating, indicating a problem with the power supply.

Sanyo 46" 1080.must you use hdmi cable to get best picture?

Yes. HDMI cables are the best for sound and picture quality with an hd signal at this time than anything else. A lot of people can't see much of a difference using HDMI rather than s-video, component / video, or rf cables but there is a slight difference. You will have to have an hd signal or source such as an hd sattelite receiver, an hd cable box, bluray, etc to benefit fully w/ an hdmi cable.

Hi Ed,

The only thing you can try is leaving the TV unplugged for an hour so the TV can discharge and reset itself.

If this doesn't work, then we're talking about maybe a power supply board problem for the screen itself. Most manufactures call it a Blacklight Inverter Board. I would use the warranty for the TV if there is any. The TV repair shop maybe expensive for this type of repair. So, get a price quote first. That way you can decide if is easier and cheaper to buy a new TV for her.
