Do you mean only the screen goes off and sound remains or does the tv go off altogether? Also what is the status of the LED at the front when it goes off?

    The source of the fault is undobtedly the power supply board. Most likely cause is faulty electrolytic capacitors. How good are your electronics/soldering skills?

    Ok atleast do you know the basics like using a multimeter, knowing about which components hold residual voltages etc.,? If not then I am afraid that you should leave this to a qualified tech. If that is the case please get me your zipcode so that I can get you a list of techs in your area

Sanyo LCD TV has green light , no picture or sound.


You have the classic symptoms of a power supply failure. Visual inspection of capacitors is not a reliable method of solving the problem

All three lights blinking picture only stays


I was having this same problem - power cycling - exactly as described. The lamp turns on and the picture looks good for the 5-10 seconds it is on (this makes me question all the comments I've seen online saying it is a bad lamp that needs replaced).

Problems started with green lines on analog channels and erratic behavior that included freezing and shutting off occasionally. Now, it is to the point where I get 5-10 seconds of picture, then it freezes and starts the power cycle 5-6 times, chiming every time it automatically turns on, before finally remaining off. I have removed the back, dusted off fans/components/etc, supplied additional fan for airflow, and made sure the blue switch in the back is down. Still having the same problem!

Ok. I went through the standard warranty process, which means they sent me a replacement bulb saying that was the issue. No luck...same power cycling. Finally they sent a tech out who took a look and said he needed to replace the digital board. So, 2 weeks later, the part came in and the repairman came back out to install it. Voila, I have a tv again. (This is the same fix the supervisor at the call center said it needed months ago...before they sent me the lamp)

So...I would recommend having the tv's digital board checked. Especially if your tv is still under warranty, as it cost me $0.00 to fix. Chances are, they are still going to start by having you replace the lamp. Good luck!

Monitor goes blank after a couple of seconds.


The problem can be the backlight inverter board or bad capacitors in the power supply section, I have seen bad soldering of the wires to the lamps are bad also.

1996 Geo Metro - when the head lights are turned on the the engine idles up and down. As long as the lights are off, everything works fine. RPM's go up to about 2000 for a couple of seconds and then back...


Sounds like you may have a faulty switch, or bad ground in the system. This will cause the fluctuating idle when additional load is applied to electrical system.

Pictures goes black while power light blinks green


I have a 40 but i was having the same problem. It turned out to be my lamp. I got a brand new lamp from Projector Lamp Services (relampit.com) and my tv works fine now. Im pretty sure that the 40 and the 60 take the same lamp. You might want to give them a call.

My Sony comes on then both sound and picture goes black.


After being on a little while, the screen goes black (no audio as well) for 20 to 30 seconds. Green light stays on. Then, picture comes back on and takes a couple of seconds to get up to full brightness. About 5 seconds or so after the video comes back, the audio returns.

Until this morning, has only happened a couple of times a day, now happening more often. About 3 times in last 20 minutes.
