Question about Memorex MT2245 TV

1 Answer

Delay turning on

I have a new Memorex Flat Screen TV, and it takes about 10 seconds for the picture and sound to appear when it's turned on. Is this normal in a new TV, or fixable? The TV was a gift and is rather heavy, so although it is under warranty, it would be complicated to return it. Thanks!

This model uses a flat screen picture tube, and it could be that it is normal for the tube to take that long to warm up. It is also why the set is rather heavy. If you are able to return it, however -- I would opt for a "name brand" set that can at least be repaired when it breaks down. Check out consumer reports December issue for suggestions.

Samsung ln22a450 red light indicator blinking 5 times also sound like initial screen but no picture no audio after that. 10 min later the tv it shut off by it self


If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life of your monitor or TV by several years.
Check the cables, connectors and connections.
Take it to a repair shop.

I have a memorex. I am getting sound but no picture. When powered on, the memorex sign shows up but then no picture just sound. Also makes a slight screeching sound for approx 10 sec. when powered on.


I guess the blanket draped over the TV is intended to give it a "timeout". Anyway, you will likely conclude eventually that the internal power supply has failed.

Memorex HDTV no picture


I am going to assume that you have not already found the answer to this problem. It is actually pretty common for flat panel televisions in the winter to be too cold to turn on. What I did when faced with this problem on my 32 inch memorex was turn it on for 30 minutes while covered with a fleece blanket, than turn it off. When you turn it back on it should work...did for me!
