Question about Televison & Video
Tv turns on, SONY lights up on the screen, screen goes black. You can get the menu to come up for a split second, then the screen goes black and stays black. Any ideas where to start troubleshooting this problem? Thanks.
Not really that tough. Sounds as though the backlight is shutting down, either from a power supply failure, or a failure of the backlight circuit itself. You can verify this by holding a flashlight to the screen in the area where the menu usually appears to see if it displayed on the LCD panel with no backlight. If you can faintly see the menu displayed, your backlight has shut down and the most likely cause is the backlight inverter board, followed by the power supply and the backlights themselves which are part of the LCD panel. If you found this information answered your questions, please be sure to rate it. Thanks!
