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,

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.

It started with the computer not getting power weeks ago but you could play the cord it would kick on no big deal. I figured I needed a new cord. Then yesterday it started turning itself off. If it sat...

Your power jack is bad. The cable and DC jack are a one piece cable that can be unplugged from the motherboard and replaced. They are available on EBay for around 30 bucks or less and takes approx. 30 minutes to change out.

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;

Sylvania SRT2232S Powers On, No Picture, High Frequency squeal

Hello there. I'm sorry to say that it sounds as if the element that actually energizes your screen is bad. It is most likely overheating. or quite poosible the power converter lost a resistor or 2.

Power button makes a click, click sound

The sound is coming from a failed flyback auto transformer. You will need to replace that.

I had the same thing - one long red flash followed by four short red flashes. Plugging and unplugging the power cord had no affect until I also unplugged all the cabled connections to the VCR and DVD player as well. Also, per the manufacturer's instructions, I unplugged the power cord from the surge protector and plugged it into the main wall outlet (which I tried first, but did not finally have success until I cycled the power cord unplugging process with all the cabled connections to the auxilliary devices unplugged as well).
