Question about Wharfedale DVD-M3 DVD Player

1 Answer

One half of the lcd tv loads fine, picture is perfect. The other half of the tv screen appears to struggle to warm up and appears much darker. In fact the image lingers when one program ends and another starts, almost like the previous image is burned onto the screen. After about 10-20 minutes the tv is working perfectly with crisp picture. Any idea what the problem is?

How old is your LCD TV?
From your description of the problem. It appears to be a moisture related. As the TV is ok after a while.

Power off your TV before carrying out next steps.

I would check the wiring connections first and see all connections are good. Also vacuum clean of dust using a brush is recommended.

Secondly would use a hair dryer to blow hot air into to TV unit via the exhaust vent. Just ensure that power is not switched on.
on your TV when you use the hair dryer.

i would also suspect a possible bad joint of a component on the mother board. A visual inspection is required to see the motherboard.

Also a component failure is a suspect due to aging..

You need to evaluate if it worth repairing the TV. Repair cost can be prohibitively high.

hope that helps. good luck.

46in Vizio LCD HDTV distorted black picture when tv is turned on


Hi There are three things that can cause this problem. Your lcd screen, t-con board or the signal board. Most likelly in your case since you say it's only half the screen it's going to be your t-con board. You can try removing it and cleaning all the contacts and replacing it see if that helps. If that doesn't help then replace it. If that does not solve it then it's going to be your screen.

The color will not adjust. we have followed the instructions in the booklet but that did not work. the picture is blavk on one's face and normal on the other. just a dark picture most of the time.


This problems can't be repair sorry.The problems u have is the effect of the LCD screen panel itself shorting out.The LCD screen panel is slowly getting darker and darker eventually will ingorf half of the screen or more.Than the evidence more clears is not the tv electronics,but the LCD screen panel display itself.Sorry the LCD screen panel,replacement is not an option,because it is 90% inportant to the tv and it limited production by the tvs corporations and only can buy those LCD screen panels from the tvs corprations themselves.They'll sell the LCD screen panel price the same as a new tv.Sorry this tv now,dosen't worth as a whole tv anymore,now it only can be used for as eclectronic boards for salvaging for boards to used as parts,that it.

Is the XD Demo on. This shows half of the screen with the XD picture engine on and the other with it off. Check your picture settings in the menu.
Good Luck
