Sounds like you have an LCD tv with backlight problems. Check power board for domed capacitors and replace them. next check connections on the inverter boards. they are on the sides or just one side. Becareful there is high voltage output from these boards. If the cable from inverter board is not good to the screen you can get a strobing. the inverter boards may need replaced. or cales to screen may be bad. The panel also could be bad.

Light came on for about 10 secs then started flashing.took batteries out,put them back in and then when it came on it looked like a strobe light..then turned off..I now cannot make it come back on.


The strobe effect is an indication of insufficient contact at either the positive terminal or negative terminal. Check terminals for a tension (pressure) against the batteries.

I TURN MY TV ON AND IT HAS A STROBE LIGHT EFFECT TO IT. THE PICTURE WORKS GREAT ITS JUST HARD TO WATCH IT OR PLAY A GAME ON IT WITH THE STROBE LIGHT EFFECT


I've fixed several of these, easy fix, you will need to replace both 470uf 35 volt capacitors on the master and slave inverter boards. So you will have to replace a total of 4 capacitors. The capacitors themselves are about 50 cents a piece. The inverter boards are on the far left and far right of the set. You will have to remove the back cover to see them. If you don't have the ability to replace the capacitors, you can just order new inverter boards for $40-$60.

I have a 42" Proscan


It sounds more like a backlight problem to me. The first thing I would try before tearing the set apart is simply unplugging it for about five minutes and plug it back in. TV's do weird things sometimes and need to be reset. Odds are, if you have to open up the TV, there's not a whole lot you can do anyway. Check the backlight on signal and also see if your inverter is working. I would suspect that if you're strobing your backlight is probably dying. In that case all you can do is replace the panel; you could try finding a replacement backlight and installing it, but I wouldn't advise even trying this. Replacing backlights is quite a task if you're not familiar with televisions. Anyway, best of luck.

I was wathing tv when my light started flickering then the tv turned off now it wont turn back on please help


Hello, This is a sudden high voltage, it will require opening the television to check faulty component. First check for fuses in the printed circuit board and if found replace with same current rating. Also check other component such as the power transistor, resistor, rectifier with a multimeter set at ohms range
