Question about Coby TFTV1703 17 in. LCD Television

Open Question

Black Screen I bought the TV about a year ago. 6 months in having the TV it has started to have problems. When I try to turn it on the screen turns blue for a couple of secinds then the screen turns black. Called customer service and they were very RUDE and UNHELPFUL! All they said was that it was no longer there problem since the warranty was over. I would not reccomend this brand, coby, to anyone. If you have any helpful advive please reply ASAP!

Go into your menu and navigate to find Closed Caption then turn it off. That should do it!!!! Read your manual also, it's possible you might have POP picture in which it displays multiple channels when you change it. That feature should also be in your manual.

Check your electrical outlet. We had same issue with a different brand TV and the electrical outlet was the issue. Hope this helps.

You could just reset back to factory defaults and let it rescan for the channels again.

I'm having the same problem with the same TV. I called around to repair shops and I guess it's fixable. Haven't taken it in yet but I was told it most likely is a bad module. But this seems to be a really common problem with this television

Sharp aquos hdtv has sound but shows a white screen


yes and no. That particular tv you have is done for, but if you just purchased it 6 months ago, you are still within you 1 year warranty with sharp. they will ask you to take it to a authorized service center and you need to follow through with the process. about a week or 2 will pass and the service center will deem the unit unrepairable and sharp will replace it if they cant solve the problem. give em call..good luck 2u

I have a Samsung 50" plasma, that has been blacking out over the last 6 months. A 9/2005 set. Now its practically unwatchable as it happens 3 times in an hour. Its not heat related - I have a high volume 9" fan activated on TV power on. Turning the set offf/on usually makes it come back for a now short while. Considering to go put it in the back of my pickup and park it in front of Best Buy and discourage Samsung purchases. This is the 2nd Samsung TV I've purchased (the other a 32" tube) I gave to my folks a couple years ago and its gone bad as well. Samsung product may look good, but their video engineers are not.

Vizio GV42L LCD TV screen black when turn TV on first time


If you are using a set top box this might be caused by turnig the box on at the same tie as you turn the tv on or slightly after you turn the tv on.  If you are using compnent or HDMI inputs the set needs to see the signal as it is turned on to know what formt the signal is in.
