    When we turn on our tv the screen is black but we can hear sound. Sometimes we need to turn the tv on 2-3 times before getting a pictures. The tv on less than 2 years old.

    Same issue here! My 42" vizio is a year old. No other problems other than having to turn it back on if I only get audio. Still can't figure out how to work my pip either.

    I am having the same problem. Has anyone replaced the main board themselves? if so does anyone have instructions on how to replace?

I have a 42" Vzio from late 2007 and it gave me only a black screen and the light was still visible in the back. I called a repair man today and he came over and advised it's the main board. its costing $225.00 for parts and labor. With the cost of a new 42", I personally think it's worth it. Crossing fingers it'll make it way pass the 90 days warr. Perhaps yours may be having the same issue.

I believe the problem is a failing main board i had a 37 inch vizio that had similar problem and was fixed 100% by replacing main board. i know have the 42 inch and have experianced dark screen a few times im still looking into it.

If it's completely black, then a ribbon or cable internally is disconnected or the panel is bad or the light source (LED or whatever) is burnt out and will need a new one. Chances are it's broken to where you should buy a new TV rather than repair

LG tv has audio only, no video


did you tried to look in the darkened room just to ensure if their is a white screen. if you could see a very dark screen like almost no backlight the cause could be the t-con board. you can check also the ballast board for screen back light which need to replaced .

The screen is completely black. you can hear sound but the screen is still black.


Try unplugging everything then unplug the TV for a minute plug everything back in turn on. It might be the main board that needs replaced on it if that wont work. FYI LCD TV/ DVD Combos have been known to have issues

LCD screen gone dark, can still hear sound and see image


It wouls appear one of the backlights in the screen is cutting out, this will require the screen to be replaced although in certain circumstances, depending on the age & model of your TV, it is sometimes possible to change the faulty backlight independantly. Take it to a repair centre to get an anaylisis of the type of screen it has.

I had a problem with a Samsung 46 inch LCD and it had audio and dim light but no picture and found out that the logic board toward the top (inside tv) was bad and was no longer available and the only way to fix it was to get the entire display panel (the logic board came with it) It was not costwise to repair. Hope this helps.
