    i also have a ghost image of the top half of the image on bottom of screen,
    having disconnected zsus board and powering up this solves the problem but gives me a low resolution dark full screen image .my personal conclusion is the chips on zsus being overheated and faulty but can i find replacements.

    I have the exact same issue, just happened this morning. I tried disconnecting the zsus and powering up as suggested, but did nothing for me. There's a louder than normal buzzing sound from the zsus, so I agree that something overheated or fried.



    have you found a way to fix it yet?

    I see that almost each post in here has a " Get premium assistance" next to it and I was wondering if anyone tried it... I've asked some of the techs here for an answer for over a month ago and got nothing so right now I'm asking myself if there is any tech here or just a webmaster cashing in from the "premium assistance" link.

    just heard from the electronic repair place a couple of weeks ago, the main board would need to be replaced for $1000, or I could find the part myself online for $750. Too much, but it was a great excuse to get a bigger tv.

I have a Sony WEGA KDE-42XS955 that takes 5 minutes for the picture to appear. Once it appears..works great! If I just leave it turned for it will work fine. Any idea what board needs to be replaced?


The main power supply regulator section circuit fault. Either it will be a separate board, or the part of main board. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.

I have a 60 inch sony tv that have a red flashing on the lower left side,no picture when I turn it on and there is ringing sound.


Those blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.

If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.

My lg plasma tv is cutting off the edges of the shows we are watching. I cant find a setting that will take care of it. Can you help


hmm normally these settings are found in the picture settings of the set top box or just a setting in the tv's picture settings now there might be an option to say fill screen that may work best for some or leave the tv in 16:9 some broadcasts may only be in 4:3 at times this is normal broadcasting and not much can be done unless the setting on the picture option is set to fill screen

Sony Bravia flat screen TV when turned on has black screen. Green light on the bottom is lite up, electric plug is plugged into house socket, no picture only black screen.


If audio is OK, the fault is with its backlight section. If audio too is absent, the fault is with its digital main board. If you wish to get more details visit the site linked here. Pull up older posts.

WHY DID MY VIORE SCREEN RESIZE TO SMALLER SCREEN


Screen size depends on the broadcast signals aspect ratio, the TV adjusts for that automatically, the picture can have no bands or be banded top and bottom or on both sides.
