Since it is 5 years old mostly dry soldered appears. First sort out the soldered problem. Then check zener diode in video input path is short. Mostly the diode is short. Still get problem check video switching ic also. I think former is the most problem.

62' tv has sound no picture. tv just 2 years old.

Sounds like a video cable issue, i would change your video source cable and if that does not do the trick, try switching inputs all together, if your using color stream 5 strand go to HDMI, DVI or svideo.

I bought a 3 year old Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV SW29M50 29 and it did not come with a manual question thereare 5 jacks above the video jacks what are they for i have surround sound speakers how do...

The inputs you refer to should be colored as follows.
(not necessarily in this order)
These are what are called Component Video inputs and is one of the way that HD capable equipment connect to your television. It will not get true HD picture but this input will provide you with a crisper clearer picture.

Good Luck and Happy New Year.....

No picture, no sound

The green steady power light is a good thing, how old is the TV?

If you are routing your audio and video through the audio receiver, make sure that the inputs are correct on the display of the receiver, ie. IF you are planning to watch your DVR and it is hooked up on Component 1 for video and Coaxial 1 for audio, make sure that the receiver is still programmed for this in the input of TV/Video 1 or whatever the input. I have ran into this on countless occasions, simple fix, but a headache until it is tracked down. Double check the connection to the TV as well.

Sound no picture on cable

sweetkiss, if it works through the dvd player and not on cable/satellite box then the tuner is bad, if you have any type of cable/satellite box try running A/V cables out of the box to video input on the back of the tv and switch the tv to that video input, ie; vid 1, vid 2 etc. (your using one of those inputs for the dvd) this will give you your picture back, you can of course also replace the tuner in the set, good luck, BMW Rider

Component Video inputs do not work

I started back in the day of tubes. A family would have one set and it would be a 19" black and white. There are different resolutions now. The components probably do work, but, they don't pass the 480i signal. The satelite converter's analog signal needs to be set to 480p and the DVD needs to be set to progressive if it does have that setting. If the DVD is not a progressive scan DVD, then, the only inputs that it will show on is the analog signal. Some of the dish converters have a switch on the face for changing the resolution. If yours doesn't then put it in an analog source and go to the menu and change it there. Then move it to the component input. Hope this helps.
