Because of the age of your set I am incline to believe you have a loose conection giving you this symptom and if I was doing the repair it will be the first thing to look for ,I am sure I would find quite a few ,resoldering them will prevent more expensive repairs and likely take care of this one.If you are familiar with tv service this will help you but if you are not seek assistance from a servicer.It should not be expensive.

My sinoteq led tv with black and white stripe on screen no pictures but the sound is there.

Here are some ways you can attempt:

1. Check the cables: Ensure that all cables connecting your TV to external devices (such as cable/satellite boxes, DVD players, or gaming consoles) are securely plugged in. Try unplugging and re-plugging them to ensure a proper connection.

2. Reset the TV: Turn off the TV and unplug it from the power source. Wait for a few minutes, then plug it back in and turn it on again. This may help reset any temporary software glitches.

3. Check the settings: Go into the TV's settings menu and make sure the picture settings are properly configured. You can also try resetting the picture settings to their default values.

4. Test different inputs: If you have multiple input options (HDMI, VGA, etc.), try connecting your TV to a different input source to see if the issue persists. This will help determine if the problem lies with a specific input or the TV itself.

If none of these steps resolve the issue, it might be best to contact the manufacturer's customer support or consult a professional technician for further assistance.

My Brahn tv started turning itself on and off non stop. All you see on screen is Brahn start up symbol then goes black again

There could be several reasons why your Brahn TV is turning itself on and off and not displaying anything on the screen. Here are some steps you can try to resolve the issue:
  1. Unplug the TV from the power outlet for a few minutes and then plug it back in. Sometimes, this can reset the TV and resolve the issue.
  2. Check the power cord and ensure that it is properly connected to the TV and the power outlet. If the cord is loose, it can cause the TV to turn on and off.
  3. Check the batteries in the remote control. If the batteries are low, it can cause the TV to turn on and off.
  4. Try using a different HDMI cable to connect the TV to the source device. A faulty HDMI cable can cause issues with the display.
  5. If the above steps do not resolve the issue, try performing a factory reset of the TV. You can usually find instructions on how to do this in the TV's user manual or on the manufacturer's website.
If none of these steps work, it may be a hardware issue and you may need to contact the manufacturer or a repair technician for further assistance.

Sony TV XBR-43X800G solarized picture, how to fix

If you're seeing a solarized picture on your Sony TV XBR-43X800G, there are a few things that could be causing the issue. Here's how to fix it. First, check the input source.

If you're using an HDMI cable, try switching to a different input. If you're using a component cable, make sure it's securely connected to the TV.

If the input source isn't the issue, try resetting the TV. To do this, unplug the TV from the power outlet and then plug it back in. Once the TV is back on, go to the Settings menu and select Picture.

Scroll down to Picture Mode and select Standard. If you're still seeing a solarized picture, there may be an issue with the TV itself. In this case, you'll need to contact Sony customer support for assistance.

Tv Turn sound on, No Picture, turns itself off within seconds

The TV is trying to go on protect mode because an internal fault had been detected. For that reson the protection circuit keeps turning off TV continuously.

Try first leaving the TV power cord unplugged for some times, let say one hour or so.

Also ensure that the fault is not coming from a faulty receiver box sending bad signal, check if you get same problem with no receiver box or dvd connected.

If that does not work, and you keep having a flashing led on front of the TV, and tv turning off by itself after a while, that indicates a fault condition.

The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the TV goes on protection there are only two possible reasons.

1The internal circuits are jammed because of electrostatic charges accumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage read by the main chip on your monitor controller board. this started the protection circuit.

2 The protection circuit detected a wrong voltage or abroken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in , startingthe flashing light.


If you are in situation one, then theTV will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours,sometimes even minutes.

If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.

Common faults that can occur are a blown capacitor on power board, a convergence IC has blown, or a fault on Digital board.

Check also the video cable or any external connection cable, if the cable is shorting, or the connector is bad, you can get same flashing state because of the video cable.


If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual

Samsung LCD tv - Turns on and off by itself.

Since you have another TV with the same problem you can try using an antenna(indoor model ok) to see if the cable is causing the problem. If not return TV before the warranty expires.

Vizio LCD 37 Inch Turns Off Randomly

I had a similar problem with my 32 inch plasma tv. I called vizio's
1 800 number and the guy said to unplug the tv from the wall and hold down the power button for a minute and then plug the tv back in outlet and turn on. And it works I guess from what I understood from his heavy accent was that the tv retains power and this resets it somehow. hope that was helpfull!!
