Question about Projection Televisions
It is not a good idea for electronic products to be in storage for long
periods of time. It is even a more poor idea to purchase used from a
rental center; the result is more often than not a very bad experience.
With no picture, but working sound, it is a loss of the high voltage system. This is almost always failure of the high voltage autotransformer called the flyback and/or the HOT (horizontal output transistor) - which work together in producing the horizontal scan of the raster system and the high voltage to prduce the raster upon which the video picture is modulated.
The failure could very well be from HIGH temperature involved with the storage of the tv set.
The repair costs will be over $150 but not more than $300; depending on the exact parts that need replaced.
But: try the hard reset and the vibration/whacking test first to see if the moving business caused failures.
Hard Reset: Unplug for 4 hours, then try again. Do it twice.
