Just take a close look at the screen with a Flashlight and see if you can see some sort of picture like a ghost of an image. If this is the case, the backlight has failed.if none then probably the back light inverter board has failed and need to be replaced.

I wonder what inputs you are using? The first thing to check is the cable that connects to your T.V. If it is an RCA cable, the one that has Yellow, red and White cables, then try to wiggle or replace your yellow cable and see if that helps. Also, try to connect it with another device to see if it is the input for just that device. If the input for another device works and not the one you are trying now, then it is the cable or possible the a short on the mother board for that input device. In which case I would buy a converter to bring the device that you can hear but not see into a different input so that you don't have to spring for a repair bill.
This T.V. has RF (Cable input), RCA or Component Inputs, and VGA or a computer input, so if you have a computer you can hook up to it to test it, that is what I would do if there are no other devices, i.e. DVD player or Cable/satellite.

The light is blinking a code. The code will be a series of blinks, a pause and the blinks again. Phone Sony service and give them this code. They will be able to advise you as to the problem.

Picture goes out right after turning on, have to


My 3 year old Sharp LC-40C32U would start up fine but within a minute would go dark (audio continued fine). For a while I could turn the set off and on again and it would be fine, but over time this became less effective. My solution, which has worked for a week now, was to a) unplug the set's power cord; b) after 3 minutes plug it back in and turn the set on; c) on the remote hit MENU and slide over to SETUP (3 clicks to the right if the screen is dark) and one up to RESET; d) hit ENTER and follow the prompts. This puts the set in it's factory configuration so you will have to rescan for channels. Worked for me.

TV screen goes blank but power stays on


Sounds like the CRTs are going into protective blanking due to the vertical output ic needing to be resolderd. Try resoldering the vertical IC that may possibly fix the issue.
