Question about Projection Televisions

2 Answers

Hi, I turned on my 4 year old Sony 42" plasma today and the screen was black with speckles of colour flashing for a few seconds before fading out and the whole screen goes black. The sound was fine and I couldn't get up any menu functions or any sort of image on the display. Any help is greatly appreciated. Cheers, Karl

Try first unplugging power cable for two minutes. Try also banging side of tv gently this is called whack test.

    You have probably blown some component inside the tv. Try unplugging the tv for 20 minutes or so, and then plug it back.
    If this does not fix the problem, then it is probably a faulty IC or a burnt capacitor etc.
    In this case the TV must be taken apart an component on main pcb board tested.
    This
    job should be performed by a technician, the choice is either going to
    a local TV repair, or calling the phone number printed on last pages of
    TV owner manual to get support.
    Check also guaranty terms.

Plasma tv screen goes black once you turn it on. Only sound


I have a panasonic TH-42PX60U plasma TV. When I watch TV programing I have no problems, or with the DVD input. But if I switch to another input, be it video game (PS2) or vcr the screen sometimes goes black and the red power lcd light next to the power switch flashes. Holding the power button in for a few seconds will shut down the tv. Then I can turn it back on and it may operate normally again for a undetermined period of time, before the screen goes black again. This never happened when new. The tv is about 1 year old. Any ideas on this problem? Thanks Ernie
