    I have a Samsung wall mounted plasma screen TV (42").  The picture went off leaving only the sound.  When I turned the TV off then on. (several times over 2 days), I never get a picture.  The red light at the bottom on the bottom right side of the screen does not come on.  The sound is fine!  Can this be fixed or is the TV trash.

    TV has sound/w no picture. Let it stay on for 45 to 60 minutes and turn it off I have a picture. Some times the picture is green, red or blue. Turn the TV of and on again the picture is fine. Sometimes the TV has no sound or picture but 3 flashing lights. Turn it off and on many times there will be sound and no picture and the process is repeated. Any solutions? The TV is about 8 years old.

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.
http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.

I have sound but no picture on my tv


This is a popular question. Most of the time you either need to make sure all connections are not loose or just need to turn off your tv and receiver and unplug. Wait for 1 minute then reboot.
I recommend this short video as it walks you through some diagnostics for other possible problems.

My tv has gone some orange colour


Try unplugging your tv and anything connected to it - you might want to take a picture first so you have a reference. I would also unplug everything connected to the tv: cable, stereo, etc. Wait a few minutes, then plug in and re-connect everything.

You can also go into your TV's setup menu and adjust the picture settings - try restoring the default settings first.
