    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.

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

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.

The Zune never really turns off completely. To turn it off, hold the back button and up on the Zune pad. As soon as the screen turns black, let it go, and turn on Hold.

This will turn it off completely.

First before a reset the set must turn on, if the set just sits there with the red LED on you have further problems, so does the set display anything?
