Question about Sanyo DS35510 35" TV

1 Answer

Tv too dark to see

The tv was working fine and it just went dark, I can barely see a picture. It wasn't hit with lightning or power outages. All the colors appear to be working but the screen is very dark. I first unplugged it from the surge protector an plugged into the wall, I tried to change the settings with the on screen menu, I tried the reset button on the remote to restore the factory settings, then I cleaned all the dust off the circuit board and made sure all the wires were connected securely. None of this worked so thinking it was a hopeless cause I did something stupid I tried to adjust the little knobs in the back. Yeah, I know that I'm an idiot. So now I have white lines and all the on screen letters and numbers aren't readable. I've had the tv for six years and it worked great. It is a Sanyo DS35510 35" tv. So I guess what I need to know is it a lost cause? Will it cost more to fix than it is worth? Thank you in advance.

To get rid of the white lines look at the place where you turned the control. It should be called the screen control, turn down the screen control counterclockwise till the white lines just go away. If the picture is still dark, you will need to have this set serviced as there is a problem in the crt driver board, or the power supply board. good Luck

VCR will not show picture or menu on TV after power outage.

Hate to say this, but when power outages occur, things like vcr's are the first thing to fry. But if you feel that the vcr is fine as far as powering up, then unplug it from the wall socket for 30 minutes or so, plug back in and see results.

During a storm, my tv was plugged into an outlet and it was working fine and in a minute, it turned off by itself. Now the tv does not work. There is no sound, no picture. The only thing thats still on is...

It got hit by lightning I believe. I hope you have insurance. It will most likely be in the power supply board. My recommendation is if you have cost replacement insurance is to get a new one. Once a tv get hits by lightning it is hard telling what other damage may be lurking.

Had power outage and after hitting reset button green light blink

Hard to say without looking and sniffing!

But if you suspect that it is and it is likely, you may be able to get it repaired on your insurance policy. It should be covered under FUSION

Dont mention the lightning but check your policy. Then get the repair guy to write fusion problem on the receipt and submit for claim.

I had a power outage!

Hi there!

Power outages and lightning are the main causes of Electronic failure. It has obviously affected your TV and will need to be seen to by a repair technician if you are not skilled to do so. Regards and good luck, JUS004

Lightning hit last night tv won't work cable company says it's in the television

Sorry to here about your problem! This is the time of year I used to get tons and tons of sets, stereos ,games, and vcrs in for repair. On your panasonic it seems that maybe the surge took out the tuner portion or the power supply. It sould cost aprox. 200 bucks or so for a new tuner. Im sure your aware that homeowners will cover almost all repair after the deductable. Good Luck
