MINTEK 32" DIAGNOL LCD WIDESCREEN TV W/ DVD PLAYER

It was purchased new in 2005. After the TV has been on for an hour all of the colors run together. If you turn it off for a while and turn it on, it plays fine for another hour and it blurs again. What do you think is wrong?

    There is really nothing like that around the TV.

    My Mintek TV doesn't have the DVD player, but the exact same thing is happening. It plays fine for about an hour, then the color start turning really bright. Then the lines start to blur and the colors all run together. It's very odd.



    My husband thinks it's a problem with the input connection. He thinks the soldering is bad and when it heats up the connection goes bad. The odd thing to me is that you don't have to turn it off for long for it to fix itself.



    I called a couple places and it sounds like it might cost half of what we paid for the tv for them to even check it out. I am not sure what to do!

Its a way of tellin u ur watchin too much tv lol... no but seriously.
Move anything magnetic or any sound producing electronics away from you television. This includes stereo speakers or alarm clocks. Give your TV 30min. to 1hr. to cooldown completely and see if that fixes your problem.

Our Toshiba 15LV505 15.6-Inch Widescreen LCD TV with Built-in DVD Player, purchased in 2009 is now flashing the onscreen message Digital strength is weak. We have it connected to cable TV. What can we do...


Hello
Hust connect your TV to an external antenna, and set it to auto tune, and see it stores all the transmitting channels at that time, and recieving channels are clear and crisp. If it does, your TV is perfect, and the trouble is with the settop box. Either the set top box doesn't get enough signal to process or its internal digital processing stage is faulty. It should be repaired. If TV doesn't accept of the accepeted signals are weak, the tuner of the TV is faulty, and should be repaired. OK.

My remote control has broken.


I would check out the Harmony 510 remote control. It may be a little pricey but it is the best universal remote on the market for the money. It also allows you to control your DVD unit as well as your TV without the requirement of selecting which one. Harmony remotes are activity based in the you pick what you want to do such as “Watch TV”, “Watch DVD” , “Watch VCR” etc.. Then It turns the appropriate units on and then sets them to the correct input. Makes it real easy once set up. Another advantage is the IR codes are stored on line and constantly updated so new products and codes can be added.

HELP


jennyd8,

I'm not sure exactly what you are asking me to explain. If you are asking why it has to be locked or "frozen" in the DVD mode it is because that is the easiest way to effect the fix, ie, by wiring the new connection to the cable that comes from the DVD player into the motherboard. If your set is already "frozen" in the DVD mode then you are ready to start the fix. If you need to get it in the DVD mode just stick a DVD in the player and the set will go into the DVD mode. If this is not what you wanted clarification on then please be more specific as to what you are puzzled by.
