TV/VCR/Stereo Troubleshooting/Sanyo TV


my oldish sanyo tv flat screen... keeps changing colour from all blue, all green all red.... it will only turn on and off ...nothing else... could you tell me whats wrong with it please ?

With out the model number I cannot be very specific at all.

But, the description of your symptoms would lead one to think maybe the main board has gone bad and needs replaced.  Cost could be more than the set is worth - based on your comment that the set is "oldish".  If the set is over 5 years of age it is probably not worthy of repair costs.

Cheers.  Let me know if you have further questions.
