Black Screen, but menu shows up

I am having this problem on this tv I just got used, its like it is not getting any a/v input. the screen is just black, no snow, nothing, except the on screen menus seem to work fine. i have tried all a/v (but not component), and cable to no avail. sound gets louder and softer, but is snow only, not what is coming in. i've checked the input (a/v / cable, etc) and channels, they are correct, but nothing. no remote. I own a pawnshop and all my other tv's work from the same input, so thats not it. supposedly my employee that took it in tested it, but who knows. thankfully i've only got $60 into it, but is it worth fixing or calling a repairman? thanks!

Re: Black Screen, but menu shows up

If you are sure that it is connected right and tested the audio inputs because to do that you will need an original remote, then you have a bad tuner or input switcher IC and no I am afraid that the TV most likly is not worth fixing. Good Luck

Rca tv... screen is black when you turn it on but it will show the Menu and let you go thru the menu... It also says tv is muted and wont let you turn the tv up

In the menu see if you change the input selection to something you know is on (a cable box, DVD player) and make sure that is the input picked.

I have a blank, black screen, irrespective of the input (cable, dvd, wii). The menus, however, come up fine and the audio is working fine.


Your screen is showing a black picture because the closed caption function has been activated. When the closed caption mode is on the screen will display an 80% black picture.

To turn off the closed caption and regain a full screen please follow these steps;

1) Press the Menu button

2) Use the up and down arrows to navigate to Closed Caption

3) Use the right or left arrows to select it.

4) Use the right or left arrows to select OFF

5) Use the up or down arrows to select Finish

6) Use the right or left arrows to save the settings and exit.

You should have your full screen back now minus the annoying black box.

If this solution has helped please do take a moment to rate it.

Thanks for using FixYa

Video inputs not working

Looks like your son got into the service menu,(it`s rare since you need a specific combination of keys to get into it) and somehow managed to disable one of the input.I can`t tell you how to get back into it since it could do you more harm than good but any local tv repairman should be able fix that in five minutes.

Toshiba 32a43 32' picture garbled mess

If you can get the tv to display the blue blackground(usually happens when there is no antenna or cable feed to tv) check to see if the whole screen is a solid blue, if it shows discolored areas around the screen then you might have to "demag" the screen. See if you can rent a demad coil from a tv shop and with tv on turn the coil in circular movements all over the front of screen till blue is solid.good luck!

Prima HDTV has a black screen on TV, but works fine while Playing DVD

try turning the channel up or down with the tv remote to input 1 or 2 depending on which one is being used for the dvd player. tv should use input 1. dvd should be on input 2.
when turning the channel set it to show the dvd screen, then go up 1. if it doesn't show, return and go down 1.
