Top portion of the screen doesn't work. It's blank. 32" lcd Emerson

So I just purchased the tv used. I had a towel over the top when carrying it inside, but it may have gotten a little rain inside. It worked well when I first plugged my comp into the hdmi port. But shortly after started acting up. Screen not coming in etc.. Then froze on the startup screen. Buttons stopped working. I let it sit for an hour and turned it back on. It will now go to the normal screen and the buttons work, but the top 1/3rd of the screen is completely black. Any insight would be much appreciated.

Look, if you had a towel on in you probably protected it well, in case you were carrying it for few meters from your car to house, but even if a few drops get it they are probably not gonna cause any massive problems if any at all + after you let it sit there for an hour it should work normally (if drops didn't burn any components, short curcuits etc...)

So my best guess is that you bought a broken TV. :/

SOURCE: Monitor Blacks Out Randomly

Well If the monitor is brand new and you just purchased I would take it back and get another one as it appears to be defective. Most stores will allow you to exchange a defective item without a problem as long as you have the receipt. Any attemot to make repairs yourself could void the warranty. If it is used it may still be under warranty...I would get the model/serial number and contact Asus to have repairs made. Most monitors have at least a one year warranty.

SOURCE: Westinghouse 1080P 42" LCD TV - HDMI stopped working

I know this is late, but this happens frequently. If anyone else has the same problem try unplugging the TV for 60 seconds. Plug it back in and then hold the power button down for 30 seconds. That will reset the TV.
You should see the Westinghouse logo come up and the HDMI should work. This has happened twice with my TV in 1 year.

I have an Emerson 32" television when I power it on I only get sound but no picture


If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life of your monitor or TV by several years.
Check the cables, connectors and connections.
Take it to a repair shop.

Wide screen lcd simple question.


Hi pooing stone,

You may sometimes find that even with a television referred to as “widescreen,” widescreen movies still have letterboxing.

This is likely because the movie you are playing is still in the ratio used at a theater. While most televisions are 4:3 for the more square-type or 16:9 for widescreen, a theater screen is much wider still. Unless the movie has been reformatted specifically to 16:9 for your television, you will either see letterboxing or lose portions of the picture by zooming in.

If a movie is available in several ratios, I suggest thinking of all the options before buying. Although purchasing a movie reformatted to 16:9 will prevent the black bars, purchasing it without any reformatting of the size will prevent you losing part of the picture.

FYI: It is very common with Blu-Ray Discs that widescreen means original size, not 16:9.

Thank you,
Jason,
Go Ahead. Use Us.
