Re: no picture just comes sound

Sounds like the Backlight has failed, if you look closely at the screen you should be able to see the image changing, but as there is no back light there is no luminescense so it will appear black or grey, It is probably the backlight inverter or element that has failed, if this is within warrany organise with them to fix it for free,

What to I do if my TV got wet on the power cord but I am getting picture and sound before it cuts off?

If the liquid got into the TV and onto the printed circuit board, there could be damage to the circuit board. The fact that the TV had a reaction to the liquid is not a good thing. If the TV is still wet inside the problem will remain. If you continue to turn the TV on if it is still wet you might cause more damage. I would wait until the liquid is gone or dry and try the TV again. If the TV was in the normal position to watch, the liquid should run off and dry in a few days.

I have a phillips 42fd9954 17s. when i turn it on the green light tuns on for like 6 seconds then fades . then nothing. no sound no picture. any idea. i am using a comp cord. had no cord when i got it

if you use vga input and there is no signal the tv shuts down in few second. It will wake up again if you provide vga signal or cycle it on off again. Change input to component or s-video and tv should stay on. On the other hand, this model has known problem with bad power supply unit but usually red light flashing when tv shuts down in that case.

The tv has no picture but sound can be heard. how

Try connecting a different device to the TV and check. You may also try changing the cable to connect the device to the TV and check. If the issue persists, try resetting the TV to the factory settings, then try power reset. To power reset the TV, please disconnect the power cord for a short period of time (approximately 1 minute). Then, reconnect the power cord and power on the TV. If the issue still persists, then service may be required.

I loose my picture but i still get sound

Just try to reset so picture will come again, some LCD TVs have a reset button. If available and accessible, try using the reset buttons before using the steps below. Using the reset buttons can save time.
1. Unplug the LCD TV power cord from the power outlet.
2. Unplug any connected devices (DVD, Set-top boxes, etc...)
3. Press and hold the LCD TV power button for five seconds.
4. Plug the LCD TV power cord back into the power outlet and turn on the TV.
5. Open the on-screen menu to confirm that the LCD TV is responding again.
6. Turn off the LCD TV and reconnect the devices.
7. Turn on the LCD TV.

Hope it may help you;
