We were watching TV last night with it made a click sound, just as it does as it turns on and off, however we lost the picture and can not get it back. We have the sound, but no picture at all, not even a blue screen. Does this spell the end of our TV? Is there something that can be can? Thank you

Re: No Picture on Magnavox 42" Plasma TV
Plasma displays use a fairly high voltage and the supply for it has failed.
If you want to check on your own, remove the back panel and look for one or two boards with far fewer and larger than average components on it or them.
If two boards are present, the one most obviously related to the incoming AC cord will be the main supply but in some sets, the main and HV supplies may share a board.
Locate the part # and email the manufacturer for a price on repair or replacement.

It sounds strange that the power light to this model Sony TV blinks "42" times. It should never happen. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Viewing it in "Mosaic" or "Magazine" will make surf easy. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience. Do a search by type in the brand name of your device at its search box and press "Enter". http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ These blinks are fault indications,[Error Codes], and from the number of these blinks, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit stage inside the TV; which will make repair easy.
I have same problem with mine, the power button turns red (as usual) but no picture. When i turned mine on last night it made a crackle noise and thats how it all started. I can even hear the normal sounds it makes as if it were turning on, but still no picture. Its a great tv I would hate to throw away. I want to fix it myself any help would be appreciated!
Don't watches tv anymore or u will kill the tv CRTS tubes,will cost u more money to replaced the CRTS tv tubes than the problems u have right know.U have convergence problems,it dead.U have any soldering skill?Have solder iron,Solders,Solders wicks,Tries websites Tv repair world.com,Tv repairkits.com to buy a convergence kit to repair it ur self.The shop will cost U $300-$400 for parts and labors.
that is because plasma tvs have a limit on there screen life and if all is done all day for months and months was watching tv ,playing games then you will need a new tv plasmas **** you can get same quality out of a lcd flat panel and three time the screen life or you could spend anthor grand and have the solution replace and maybe the that part of the control board went out and you will spending about half of what you paid for it to fix thats why i have two lcds have not had one problem with them one 32 for my computer and a 42 for me to watch tv ov on play games with and both the same brand and i paid 1200 for both brand new
I had a similar problem with my magnavox tv with the blinking light issue. Eventually it just didn't come one anymore. Looking at other forms they said the problem was a bad capacitor number 2074 located on the power supply board. When I opened my tv, I noticed that the capacitor was bulging and burnt up. I bought a new one labeled 2200uf 35v and did some solder to attach the new piece. Put the tv back together and it works like new. No more blinking light. I hope this helps.
sound no picture. well not entirely bad this idicate your signal getting through and you have partial power. however this could mean that the actuall panel is faulty. if so new set time. What is the model and make of set.
what are the modelnumbers on your divx player and your tv? if you are using svideo inputs do you have your audio cables hooked up? have you checked the volume on the player to make sure it is not muted?
once you supply more info i can help you further, until then, check your cables and audio settings on your divx player. and make sure all connections are in the right place
