Sylvania LC225SSX LCD TV - Answered Questions & Fixed issues

Generally, any video capabilities of your computer will allow this 'monitor' to work with your computer. You just have to make sure you're input is set to the same input you're using. Example: Computer uses HDMI, set TV input to HDMI you plug it into. HDMI 1 or HDMI 2; if your PC uses PCI, your TV must have one, and input source must be set to same. DCI, the same. You must set the TV input to the same input that you plugged your computer into on the TV.

#2, Drivers; the Windows 7 generic video out should get it to work. But, if you want driver to have more access to the TV's functions, so you can set size, ratio, brightness etc. You will have to get one from the manufacturer. They will let you know what driver you need.

If they list a Windows 7 driver, and tell you what the name of the driver is, go to Microsoft, and or Google, and search for that driver. Make sure the site you get the driver from is one you trust.

It sounds that the memory IC haven't stored any data after scanning. Just do a re-scan, and check. If it do not help you, the main system control memory IC to your TV need replacement.

Look on the back of the Left hand side of the TV. There should be a Female 15pin D-sub or PC input.
Good luck!

Good day!!!

That problem is usually have 2 causes..Its either power supply board or mainboard..

Please take this steps on how to determine the problem:
  1. Open the back cover.
  2. Check the power supply output...It should have 5vdc for the main board..12vdc or 16vdc for the audio and 24vdc for the back-light inverter..
  3. If those 3 voltage supplies have encountered voltage drop...The problem could be on power supply board..
  4. If the power supply output is normal..The problem could be on the main board...
  5. If the problem is power supply you should check if the capacitors are bulged on the top and try to replaced it..If you can't do that you can purchased new power supply board..
  6. If the problem is on main board there is no D.I.Y repair on that so you need to buy a new main board that fits to your TV..
Hope thissolution will be helpful..

Thanks for using fixya...

Most problems are due to bad DC filter caps in the power supply module, that will be the first place to look.
If you are going to DIY and have proper tools, electronics knowledge, and know safety precaution then please read on:

Please see my basic troubleshooting guide here:
Failed TV and Monitors:

Learn about bad caps:

Capacitors kit: he can make you a set of caps.
Or just make sure to use caps with low ESR, 105c rating such as PANASONIC FM or FC series.
Please post back what you find.

Hmmmmm.......My ratings are slipping so this will require a serious answer! The solution I will give you will be of most accuracy. Your power supply startup resistors are are bad. These are located on the inverter board. Replace the inverter board or if you are up to it replace R603,604, and 605 with 390K quarter watt resistors. If the values are different or the same as mentioned, use the values I just told you! If they look fine or test fine...replace them with the value just mentioned!!!!!! Anyway!!!!!! Take this info to a TV tech and show him your answer. Thanks for asking me!

Targa 32" LCT TV, No picture/ sound only can hear clicking sound from Kisan KP-301R Power supply board. Have checked output voltages and they are a little out i.e. 16v instead of 17.5v and 10.5v instead of 12v.

Has SAMWHA capacitors but cannot see any bulging or leakage anywhere like other users have suffered so dont know if changing all the caps will solve the issue.

Before it finally went dead LCD TV would switch itself off after some time and just a few days before it dies it started the clicking sound but would then start up okay.

Whenever I hear "green screen" it is a loose or faulty HD cable(s).

Check your HD connections to make sure they are inserted fully and if there is no change, try an alternate cable.

maybe or maybe not. It is a pixel that is stuck 'on' all the time. Not a warranty claim item as a few bad pixels are allowed.....

It does not spread, but that is not to say that another pixel somewhere else on the screen will not go bad.

Is there a box from the cable company? If so, you will need to tune the TV to the channel that the box outputs it's signal on. Usually it's either channel 3 or 4. Whether you have a cable box or not, make sure in the set-up menu for the TV, that you have selected "cable" not "air" as your signal source. Write if you need anymore assistance.
