LCD TV screen goes blank with sound still on

My LCD TV screen goes blank with sound still on after the TV has been on awhile. If I press the on/off switch a few times the screen will reappear but then turn off again after awhile. My solution was to run an external fan onto the back/top of the TV and that seemed to do the trick (the back/top was hot). Now, with the summer heat, this does not always work so I want to really solve the problem.

    I have the same problem but it is random. Some days it does not happen at all and other days it happens about every 2 minutes. It very frustrating!

    I do not think it is a fan issue b/c it happens when it is cold and hot...

    Any help is appreciated!

Have the inverter board checked for cold solder joints, this television is notorious for bad connections on the small transformers on the inverter, buy the way the inverter is the board that lights the lamps.

Thanks please leave comment

I had this problem on my 42" Philips. Just got it yesterday and worked fine on the tv stand. As soon as I mounted the TV to the wall via wall mount system, I had the exact same issue you did. Figured it out today.

The wall mount was putting pressure against the center of the back of the tv (tv set had a slightly rounded back plate, and the mount was a flat plate). As soon as I put spacers (part of the wall mount hardware set) between the wall mount braket and the tv so there was no contact except at the mounting holes, the tv worked fine.

My theory is the pressure pushed the tv back plate against some board components which caused them to overheat (no air flow); or put pressure on internal connectors. I dont know.

Hope this helps, may not apply to your situation.

My solution so far has to been to run a fan onto the back of the TV screen near the top. This has kept the screen lit once it has been turned back on again. A more permanent solution based on my research appears to be replacing some electronic part, maybe the LCD Inverter. I have so far elected not to go that route.

The TV screen goes blank and there is no sound...if we wait for awhile...the picture reappears.

you should bring your unit to a qualified service pesonnel, problem like this is not a DIY act unless your a professional serviceman.

here are the check points
power supply,
X or Y sustain board,
bad screen (PDP panel),
logic board,
buffer boards

these sections of your TV are replaceable board.
the least you can do is just replace first the bulging/deformed capacitors.
begin with the power supply section..
after replacing try to pwer on again

good luck!

Pop up box appears periodically

try bringing up the menu, and see if there's an option "factory default", and try that. you didn't mention what button on the remote you press to get rid of the popup, or what feature you are turning off to get rid of the popup,
