If the pic is there when a flashlight is held to the screen the backlight/inverter has failed.

The high voltage power supply for the plasma display has failed. It may or may not be on a separate board that could be replaced the owner. If you find a separate board, it may have its own fuse which you could check for continuity with an ohmmeter.

Screen went out


This sounds to me that you blew a fuse, or something wrong with the mainboard. im no expert, by any means...Have you taken up the courage to open it up? there is about 40 screws, just draw diagrams and such where it goes.. also, there are 2 small screws by where the computer and dhmi digit port are (like your comp at home) AND also the nut on the coax. after this, it's home freee. power is right on top middle. check out my other post for pics of it...Hope this helps!

It is most likely a problem with the tuner, I would contact the place you purchased it or your nearest repair shop.

I had the same problem I was told to unplug then reset but still no luck. Mine have been broken since Aug 2006 and seems like it's so hard to find somebody to fix it. Please let me know if you fix yours.
