Diagnosing a LCD blank screen problem.

Recently a 3 year old VIzio TV I bought started having problems. The set would turn on normally for a few seconds then the picture would go dark with everything else operating normally including sound. Remembering a similar laptop computer problem I diagnosed previously, I immediately suspected a defective TV screen backlight. To verify this in your own TV, get a very bright flashlight and with the TV operating in the failed blank screen mode, shine the flash light into the blank screen from various angles and distance (including touching the screen). If the LCD is still operating, you'll see a dim motion in the flashlight's reflection, thus proving it is indeed a failed backlight.

Turns on but has a blank screen

Show a torch light on the screen and see whether you can the picture. If yes, the backlight is not getting on. If no, try changing the input device to some other. If you notice same problem, this may need attention by a qualified service technician.

Blank screen with blue light

Check the backlight inverter board to your TV. This is a common fault for most of the LCD TVs. If it is faulty, the backlight won't light up, resulting a balck screen with sound.

Black screen but i do have sound

HelloCheck the backlight inverter board. If it has damged, most common fault to LCD TVs, there will be no backlight to the LCD screen, and will look black. Your tV has sound output without picture. This means that all other boards ar functioning well. Check the backlight inverter section and CCFL tubes used in backlight assembly. OK.

The touch screen display does not work. It turns on but you cannot give the unit a command through the input panel.

Is the lcd screen completely blank? Or does is it just the touch functionality that is not working?

If the screen is blank, though the copier still turns on and appears to function (test it by printing to it,) then you most likely have a failed power inverter board. This board provides the current needed to operate the lcd screen and is a rather common failure. However, if it is just the touch feature that is not working though the screen lights up, then you most likely have a ripped ribbon cable that connects the lcd touch function to the main board on the lcd screen.

Keep my updated.

3 year old 42in LG LCD TV scrren went blank

You will either have a fault with the inverter board which drives the backlights or a faulty backlight in the screen. If the problem is a backlight then a replacement screen is the only cure. One or the other is breaking down after it has been opn for a certain period of time, have an engineer call out & check with a tester if it is a screen problem.

Screen turns on when powered up then goes blank.

It sounds like you are having a backlight problem with your computer. The backlight is the part of the LCD assembly that lights up behind the LCD and shines through.
