It will cear up and show a great picture then a hour latter do it again.
Expert:  Aric replied 1 year ago.

Okay then this is a fault in the lighting in the LCD panel that's occurring. In some cases the power supply/Inverter board can be causing this, but more often than not it's within the screen's built in internal lighting and cannot be replaced. Can you tell me how often it does this, and also if you've tried leaving the set unplugged for an hour or more to see if the issue still persists?

If so, is this something you're looking to attempt to repair yourself?

Resetting the system Use this procedure to reset all the receiver’s settings to the factory default.

Use the front panel controls to do this. Set MULTI-ZONE to MULTI ZONE OFF.

Disconnect the iPod and USB memory device from the receiver beforehand.

1 Switch the receiver into standby.

2 While holding down ENTER on the front panel, press STANDBY/ON. The display shows RESET YES/NO

3 Select ‘RESET’ using PRESET Arrows then press ENTER on the front panel. The display shows RESET? OK.

4 Press ENTER to confirm. OK appears in the display to indicate that the receiver has been reset to the factory default settings

Please disregard last reply that was for another customer. Standby.

Okay sorry about that. No you can't send an e-mail but you can use the paperclip icon to attach a picture if you'd like, however based on the symptoms there's only two things that could cause this- your inverters or your LCD panel. Let me pull up some parts for your set. Be right back.

Expert:  Aric replied 1 year ago.

The part you'd need to replace is the power supply/inverter board at the link below. It is the only possible fix for this beyond the screen being replaced- and no way to test between the screen or power board without replacing the board. Here is the link to the part:

I do believe this tv is a led
Expert:  Aric replied 1 year ago.

Yup. LED sets us an LCD panel. The lighting inside is LED. No difference here beyond the light. Answer is still the same.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
the links will be the parts that will fit this tv.
Expert:  Aric replied 1 year ago.

That board is shown for your model. Double check the part number of the board inside your TV to make sure it matches.
