This is a common problem with Sanyo televisions. This is a faulty main board and it gets even worse. Sanyo does not use a standard main board in their models. You will need to look at the main board (this is where your HDMI cables plug in) at the bottom there should be a part number such as N7AJ. Shop Jimmy is probably the best place to find the part; however, you will likely be waiting a few months because this is such a HUGE problem with Sanyo televisions that no-one can keep the parts in stock. This happened to my 46 inch DP46819 model and it took almost 5 months to get the part, which did fix the problem. This all started suddenly, one day the television was fine, the next there was no sound or picture and just a green light on the front of the set that also went out after about 15 minutes. I searched everywhere for the part and found nothing. When researching the problem there are LITERALLY hundreds of thousands of this exact same complaint for these Sanyo televisions. Like I said it took 5 months to get the part from Shop Jimmy ( but I finally did get the television fixed. I have since bought a Vizio and given the Sanjunk to my grandkids to play video games on.

SOURCE: My Sanyo DP46848 LCD TV display goes black when turned on.

My mother's was doing the same thing (purchased 2008). Put up with it about 6 months and took it to a repair shop. Bottom line - the display panel has a flaw in and will cost more to replace than the tv cost. See about it now it yours is still under warranty.

SOURCE: I have a Sanyo LCD

hi,doe sthe screen of your TV lights up?during power on?if not then there might be a problem on the inverter board and the backlight lamp of the monitor .The lamp is a cold cathode bulb it requires a high voltage supply from the inverter board in order to light up.just like any other bulb this lamp has a limited life span more or less 2 years of continues lit.The inverter board is a high voltage board the power input of this board is 24volts DC and the output is 200volts AC.The terminal input of this board or connectors must be check because of high voltage corrosion and loose connections always happen that leads to the mal function of the display or screen failure just like what happen to your TV.
Backlight lamp is installed at the top and bottom of the screen you need to open the back cover of your TV to check up the lamp.(make sure to unplug the TV before proceeding)..check first the test point that I mentioned then post back for your findings then will proceed to further trouble shooting...GOOD LUCK!

Help new power supply will not power up.

if you had a surge, it could have damaged more than just the power supply. When you plug in the unit, does the power indicator light up??? your main board could also have damage. The main board sends a signal to wake up the power supply thus turning on the TV. If you have to replace the main board as well, it probably won' t be economical to repair the set.

I have presently a atx 350w power supply would yours solve my supply problem

If your ATX switch mode power supply is faulty then I suggest you replace it with a new one that is 350 watt or higher wattage.
Fixing faulty ATX power supplies is not a DIY project, there are dangerous voltages in these power supplies and can cause death or serious injuries.

I change the power supply but i have a little problem. The new one on the ATX power connector have only 19 pin then 20 old one plus extra 4 pin for something else. The new power supply in Rosewill...

The extra 4 pins on the power supply's atx connector is for new motherboards that require 24pin power supplies. If your motherboard has a 20pin port, then only connect the 20pin portion of your power supply connector.

If your power supply has a 24pin fixed connector that can't be split into a 20+4pin configuration, and your motherboard doesn't have space to let the extra 4pins on the side, then you might want to consider returning the power supply and change it for one that can be used as a 20 or 24pin. Otherwise you will need to cut the extra 4pins apart.
