    my tv turns off after the picture appears. sometimes you can sit there for hours trying to get the thing to stay on and it won't and other times it works perfect.

    i have a magnavox MTS/SAP television/vcr/dvd combo.

    for months now it turns back on about 10-15 minutes after being turned, I was watching tv and a bunch of numbers came up on the screen and the sound went off....I cant remember all the numbers...but there were 2's in each of the four corners and a set of numbers like a code or something right in the middle of the screen. I called the cable company to see if it was a problem with our cable..and they directed me through some steps and came to the conclusion that it was my television set...then, I unplugged the t.v. turned it back on and it was fine for about 10 min. then, it did it again...........and turned off by itself...I unplugged it, turned it back on...but the sound was very low..and none of the buttons worked to turn it off ...or change the volume.....Hubby came in.....unplugged it to see if he could fix it.......and now it wont even come on....when we plug it will just come on for a sec.., then shuts off on its own...someone please help..cant afford a new tv..and its the only one we have...hubby is very miserable without his tv cause he cant even play his playstation.......HELP!!!!

On some sets you can push the Up and Down channel buttons at the same time.

You might also buy a new remote:

Sony kf 50e200a screen goes black and sound turns off for min...

TV has gone into "protect mode" to do just that to protect against the damaging failure that has been detected, you will need a servicer to diagnose the failure. Good luck and Merry Christmas!

Picture comes in and out

you can fix this problem, your light bulb in the tv is on its last leg, and needs to be replaced, usually around $100-$200.

Do you have a cable box? if so unplug and plug back in the box. I do have issues with boxes doing that, try unplugging the tv also. what have you done to try to fix it?

What you're describing is common when the center LED has failed / gone out. If you're really good at taking a unit like this apart and putting it back together - and not too bad with a solder stick you could attempt this one yourself... It is a pretty intensive repair but not difficult for a good shop just time consuming. The part isn't too expensive either, just an infared LED... In fact, we've run a bit short on stock once in awhile and bought one of the off the shelf versions from Radio Shack which worked just fine. Good Luck Bill
