You might try pushing two buttons a once. Like volume up&down or channel up&down. Do this from the control panel on the TV not the remote. I've seen this happen on some sets,but I'm not sure about your brand.

My 32 inch element tv when i push the power button its red then turns blue but no picture

How old is it? TRY this.. Hold down the menu button on the top or side of your TV for at least 10-15 seconds. An on screen menu will appear asking you to enter the time, date and location settings. Follow the onscreen instrucitons, and once completed your TV will reset to factory settings.

My bauhn TV screen stopped working. DVD plays sound but no picture. Can the TV be reset or rebooted

You can try unplugging the units--no picture often means the DVD has a dirty or failed optical unit.

Mitsubishi WS-5541 light blue glow

I know these sets pretty well--worked on a lot of them when new and later--one of two possible ideas=

1. Either a odd convergence problem==confirmed or denied by going into the convergence menu (in customer menu) and selecting advanced which will bring up a grid of lines--if see the same issue (I will attach a photo of a Mitsubishi with this problem) it can be fixed.

2. Some sort of issue with the circuit board on the end of the Blue tube(you are missing blue=black) but usually in this set if that happens it is uniform and on both sides of the screen, not the top.

Let me know what you find.

I doubt it is convergence, but does not hurt to look--if the missing area was perfectly rectangular I would suspect up/down centering adjustment.

There is one other possible thing to try--we will leave it for last--set has 3 hidden menus and one is OPTION menu which allows a hard reset of entire set--sets everything back to factory except convergence adjustments which are stored in another area.

Red screen

Are you talking about the "Red Screen Of Death"? There isn't to much you can do about that other than possibly changing out the Hard Drive to see if it is a corrupt file or other defect with the actual hard drive. The red screen is usually overheating of a unit because they don't a built in cooling system. Some steps you can take are.... (some you've probably tried already)
1. Turn the unit off and completely unplug it for about 30 minutes then try it again.
2. Take out the hard drive and re-insert it. Make sure all internal connections are still tightly connected.
2. Try inserting a different hard drive from a friends unit to see if it works. If it does you know it is your hard drive.

How to reset sony kv27V42 to factory settings ?

There are two methods to reset TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight is better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts.
Service mode entry, adjust and exit procedure to many popular brand TVs are given. Never forget to exit the service mode, after all adjustments have been done.

Red vertical lines on my laptop screen

Hi. Try to drain the electrostatic energy of the motherboard and see if this can resolved the issue. Please see procedure below.

Take out the battery
Unplugged the power adapter
Push and hold the power buttong for 30 secs
Put everything back in
Power on the computer

If same issue happened after this troubleshooting. You need to contact your computer manufacturer and have it repaired. Pissbile LCD problem or wires connecting from LCD to motherboard is having the problem.
