Hello i have a digital lifestyles 32 lcd tv one year old , and it has to warm up before it works good lol ? When i go to turn it on in the morning it just goes to a blank screen, power red light turns green . Also it wont turn off i have to pull the plug to turn it off . So i just leave it on for like 10 mins pull the plug again and it works normally . Anyone know whats going on ? Thanks

It has figured out that the warranty is up, and that it can now safely fail. Smile

Open the set up and check the power supply board for puffed electrolytics.

Thanks for the response . Ok checked , No puffed or burnt anything . All looks fine . One more side note , When it does finally does turn on the picture has a couple of lines off distortion fully across ot , But goes away too after it warms up .

1st, Does it have sound too, or does the sound come on after the "warm up"?

2nd, shine a very bright flash light into the screen while it's "warming up". Can you see an image there?

Possibly a bad inverter board.

That's why we're going to have to start advertising TV's as " disposable," like BIC lighters. Laughing

Indeed, when their light is going to be permanent in "off" state it's time to
trash them.

More often than not, they are fairly easy to fix. I have resurrected a 26" Toshiba and a 32" Vizio. Total bill for both - under $15

Both work great now. If you are tossing yours, let me know!

Your "Experienced easy fix repair" doesn't count on high mass numbers.

If you don't believe it, go to a local "Electronic Waste Recycling" and see......
or to a professional Repair Lab.

Then come Back to your "Fair easy Fix".

This sounds like a cracked solder connection on the power supply module.
I know there are lots of solder connections but the most common will be the large semiconductors (transistors, FET's, IC's). Use a very strong magnifing glass and good lighting. Look for hairline cracks around the solder joints and resolder. I had a Samsung 42" with exactly the same problem.
