No picture The screen just went blank. When you turn off the tv and turn it back on it flashed blue for a instant and then goes black again. I have checked all the cabling to eliminate any other possibilities.

Re: no picture

This is an easy fix! You have a bad "power inverter chipset" To fix this issue you will have to search google for a power inverter for this particular model of lcd. It's basically just the chip that the power cable plugs into on the lcd. More than likely it's going to be cheaper for you just to buy another t.v... Sorry. I know these T.V. like the back of my hand. I've seen this issue with hundreds of LCDs because I work for a company that fixes them. FYI - It is not your backlight because if that is broken the monitor would not even flash. It is not your VGA because if that was busted you would not see any video.

TV screen is blank but the program is still playing

Check the cables, makes sure all connections are still snug. If your using HDMI, try swapping it out for one you know works. There are a lot of lemons out there.

Monitor goes black - green light stays on

My screen is black, why do I not have a picture?
Answer Antenna is not hooked up to television.
  • Make sure that the antenna cable is correctly connected to the television. If it doesn't work there appears to be no signal.
Problem is caused by television broadcast
  1. Push 'INFO' button.
  2. If the screen shows channel number (1, 2, 3, etc) try another channel. Not all channels broadcast at all times.
  3. You may have a signal problem. Contact cable provider or local broadcaster regarding the specific channel.
Television is in EXT or SIDE mode, and there is no external source provided, so screen mute (black screen) is activated.
  1. Push NEXT SOURCE button on the remote.
  2. On the screen appears all sorces.
  3. Press the UP button to switch to the TV mode.
If you are using an accessory device (DVD, DVR, or VCR), be sure the device is on and running.
Blank screen when connecting to the accessory (DVD, STB, PC) device via HDMI to HDMI.

  • Make sure the cable is well connected .
  • To check which connection is selected, Press the i+ button on the remote control.
  1. When you see Blue mute / blank screen and the i+ display does not indicate any video resolution indication then there is no valid signal detected.
    • Make sure the HDMI output of the accessory is valid by changing the video output resolution to a resolution which the TV can handle.
  2. When you see a blank screen and the i+ display shows a video resolution indication then the connection is correct.
    • The blank screen is caused by the accessory device and not by the TV.
    • To detect and remedy the problem caused by the accessory device, check the instruction manual of this device.
  3. If the problem remains : reselect the HDMI external source input by changing to the other HDMI input and back to the connected HDMI :
    1. Press AV on the remote
    2. Press up and then ok
    3. Press AV again
    4. Press down and ok
    5. The compatibility check process between TV and accessory device will start over again.
  4. Reset (switch off and back on) the TV and also reset the accessory device.

Our hitachi plasma tv will turn on for a second then screen goes blank and flashes a blue signal three times and continues this until i unplug it....anyone know why and how to fix this problem?

Hello. If the TV is actually making a picture, then goes black, I would try the Y Main board. If it never makes a picture, one of the ICs on one of the Y buffers will have a hole in it. If the latter is the case, finding the part will be next to impossible. Sorry... Good luck.

If the picture shows a picture briefly upon power up then goes off after a few seconds, you have a back light fault. It could have a problem in the 24vdc circuit, failing back light inverter board, or a blown CCFL lamp.
