My TV screen has no picture

My TV was working fine, then one day I went to turn it on and the screen was dead. The remote turns on the small red light and the tv makes a click sound as it does when the picture normally comes on but there is no picture. It was working fine the night before. Your help would be appreciated Thanks

Re: My TV screen has no picture

If the light goes out you definitely have a short somewhere. If it blinks you have a fault, probably in the High Voltage circuit. Most common problem is a shorted Horizontal Output Transistor. Unless you are an experienced technician you probably need to have a reputable repair facility look at this one. Most will give you an estimate for free or for a small fee which will be deducted if you decide to have them fix it.

I cannot turn TV off from remote. It makes the picture go out but red light is still on. Have to unplug the TV to turn it all the way off.

red light stays on because tv is in standby mode when switched off by the remote, should be an on/off switch on the tv body somewhere

Big Black Square

It turns out that the Closed Caption option was turned on somehow. When I turned that off the Black Square went a way and did not return.

Polaroid TTM-2003 Locked up.

The same thing happened to me. The manual on says to press and hold the F button (located at the top of the remote) and press the mute button at the same time. This will unlock as well as lock the TV. It's a child safety feature.

Toshiba MD20FP3 Combo does not turn on. Help!

Not unless you have taken the time to learn all the safety issues concerning the HI voltage safety facts, in the repair of electronics? It sounds like your tv has a problem in the sweep/power supply circuits, and since these sets have NO user serviceable parts< its best too leave these types of repairs to a certified electronic technician. Good Luck

The lights on but no-one's home - no picture on TV

Sounds like you have a short somewhere, probably the Horizontal Output Transistor. If there is a fault the led you mentioned probably should be blinking. You probably are going to need a tech to look at this as it is a very complicated process of elimination.
