Yea it does I already tried connecting it on av in 1 av in 2 and 3
TV Technician: Anthony_Infotech, Technician replied 2 years ago
But with a different input like a DVD player?
What I mean is if your using a box you did'nt move the box to another input?you tried something completely different?what I am trying to do here is eliminate the box (assuming your using a box)

Okay when it flickers it goes blue ...The screen is usually blue if you dont have it on a source
TV Technician: Anthony_Infotech, Technician replied 2 years ago
Hopefully you have also swapped leads to eliminate that angle.
If that's the case I am afraid that leaves a bad main-board that will need to be replaced
These boards are hard to get now however if you think you can do the work let me know I will provide more info

Swapped leads what is that?
How much do you think the main board will cost me?
TV Technician: Anthony_Infotech, Technician replied 2 years ago
I am referring to any HDMI or RCA leads you may be using, particularly HDMI
Let me know what leads you are using HDMI or RCA ?

I dont have hdmi cable at this moment should I go buy one to test it
TV Technician: Anthony_Infotech, Technician replied 2 years ago
OK let me tell you what I believe is wrong, I believe the analogue board is bad that is why you are getting the set doing this odd behavior, now as a workaround (and also will improve the pic) connect up the cable or satellite box with HDMI as that is using the digital board a much better way anyway to connect please check your box can accommodate HDMI
Let me know please

That makes sence I was thinking the samething I just had to hear it from a tech thanks alot
TV Technician: Anthony_Infotech, Technician replied 2 years ago
Hello yes it has to be the analogue board the analogue and digital board are in a sandwich if you can get HDMI in there for your products like the box and others you will be good because the analogue is poor anyhow for the pic you may need a HDMI adaptor though to accomodate more than one input
