No Picture It was working fine. I went to the restroom, and when I came back, there was no picture. I hate to throw it away, if there's a simple fix.

    I unplugged the unit(for days), and still has no picture or sound

  • dfw24 Nov 29, 2008

    The only fuse I could find, is good, so it sounds like an expensive problem. I guess I'll have it hauled off. Thank you for your time.

    I was watching a movie through a DVD player. I paused the movie, went to the restroom, and when I returned, I thought someone had turned the TV off. There is no picture or sound. When I turn it on, I hear a dull click, and 2 or 3 seconds of static electricity that fades out, and then no sound at all. The only fuse I can find is at the power supply, and tests good.Thanks for your time.

Something inside the set has failed and is causing the set to fall back into "protect" mode. The click you hear is the power relay. The high voltage section is turning on for a few seconds then shutting down. Without seeing the set and taking measurements inside, there is little anyone can do remotely. It is possible that an Eprom reprogramming can fix this, but that would involve the use of another Eprom on a temporary basis and can only be done at a service shop.

If there are other symptoms that you have not listed, they may give us more clues to determine the exact problem, but as it stands you should bring the set to a servicer for an estimate. Armed with the estimate we may be able to guide you through the actual repair.

Keep us posted,
Dan

How old is your TV? Is there any Voltage fluctuation occurs or electric breakdown?

Take it to nearby repair shop or if you have enough tool to perform a test yourself then go to check its Power Control board inside the cabinet with a Multimeter for all link and circuits. May be an IC or resistor broken down.

If the TV led is on, and TV does not start but you can see that there is power getting to the TV, then you need to call a technician.

If instead the TV does not start at all and there is no power at all getting to the unit:

If you leave in UK check the fuse inside the AC plug, you do not need to take apart the TV to do this.

If the Cord/Plug is not fused, there is a fuse inside the TV , on the power board, but to replace this you also need to take apart the TV, and therefore is advisable to call a technician.

A suggestion:

If this is a CRT TV, the traditional TVs with CRT tube inside, get it replaced with an LCD or Plasma TV.
This are more expensive, but waste far less energy, and can pay themselves on your bills over few years.

Do not buy a new CRT, nowadays has become an obsolete technology.

If you turned the TV off and then turned it back on and the picture is still not there try making sure all cables in the back are plugged in securely. Check the cable box to ensure the cable box did not fail. With the limited info you give I am limited with the solution. Do you still have audio with no picture? Does the power come on? Please post back

    Hello,



    I have to agree with abvrcsm it's the main board, the click and the static electricity are 2 guaranteed signs it's the main board. If it is a CRT it will most likely cost you as much as a new 26in LCD. I recommend 1. take it to a tech and get an esimate, if it's out of your budget they will galdly keep it so you won't have to pick it up.. as they get there parts at wholesale so for them to fix it and resell it is not a problem, however, no guarantee they will do that, however they do know the proper disposal precedure. Hope this helps.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, any other indications like flashing LEDs at the front control panel? If yes, any sequence and how many blinks? Any clicking/chirping sound from the back? And are you considering a DIY (do-it-yourself) repair?

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Its the problem in the main board of your tv .may be caused due to extra current passed from the unit at that particular time and because of that the fuse of the tv is blown off.this could be the common cause for this problems.but it could also be the faulty capacitor on the main board and that capaCITOR needs to be replaced to clear this problem.

No picture, only colored vertical lines


Settings. It sounds like the convergence. It needs to be adjusted. Have had this problem before. A lot of people actually throw there TVA away because they have this problem and they think its broken, when its usually just a simple fix of adjusting the convergence. You have to make sure the little box, on the convergence settings is in the middle. Hope it fixes ur problem. :)

How I fixed it, I threw it away. Your gal at the 1-800 told me there was no way I could ever get it to work, there were no patches or help available. Shame, there were lovely and clear clipart.

Shame you do not care about your programs from the past.
