I suspect the invertor for the backlight lamps.  If the failure mode is one that is all too common today, there are some cheap parts (electrolytic capacitors) that should have cost a few pennies more. This is probably not in the category of DIY repairs but you may be able to locate and replace the power supply board or boards yourself since everything is plugged together if you can find someone to repair them or has them in stock.

Phillips flat screen tv left half of screen is black right side is dim and flickering


Is your tv less than a year old? You need to call Phillips and see if it is covered under warranty. If that is not the case you need to get a few estimates. You want to know if it will be cheaper to repair or replace your tv set.

I have a 26 inch Dynex LCD HDTV that the picture fails to work most of the time. On occasion it will work fine while the rest of the time there is sound with no picture only a black screen. I assume this...


Test: You might see a pic by shining a bright light against the screen. (Halogen can burn a spot if too close for too long like 15 seconds). If so, you probably have an inverter, backlight tube or coil/driver board problem. Some of these units have a bad ground on the tube driver coil board which can be shimmed and/or tightened. Sometimes a simple car light tester (continuity tester with a 12v bulb) from casing/mount ground to any of the - side of the backlight driver coils will light the screen and reveal if and which tube is non functional. I leave one dome light running in such ground position one of my TVs at all times for regulation and night dimming.

Tv screen goes off and on


It seems that your unit has some sort of Video side, PSU fault, or a problem to the Video section that is shutting down the Power Supply Unit, PSU. This happens so that no further damage, and possible fire will occur.
You need to take the unit to a reputable service centre/man and ask for a firm "Quote" for the work to be done.

Screen goes blank at first try. Works after 1-2 tries.


this may be your inverter going bad. Inverter is the board(s) on the side of your TV that powers up your screen.

No picture, sound ok


I have a similar issue. Sometimes the entire screen goes black and sometimes only one-half - either the top or bottom half goes black. The only solution we have found is to gently tap the TV (usually the front side) and the picture will come back for awhile. It almost seems heat related as it only goes out after the first 10 minutes of use. There must be a fix to this.
