    I replaced the inverter with a new one, and the picture still didnt come on. I thought that also would help, but that did not work. Any other sugges?tis

  • Jane Johnson Oct 28, 2012

    sorry I spelled suggestions wrong. I did not see anything wrong on the invert er, but I replaced it any way.

    okay so if you noticed that the picture was present by looking closely at it, then think back to when it was working last. Did it have a yellow orange tint? WHAT IS THE MAKE AND MODEL

  • Jane Johnson Oct 30, 2012

    the make and model of my tv is serial # 838112C62506C1 model# 26AV5020

  • Jane Johnson Oct 30, 2012

    my tv did not have a yellow tint. The tv screen went almost white and then a pop and then the picture came back. The next day no picture at all.

  • Brad Brown Oct 30, 2012

    When the screen went white was it super bright or like you turned it off? Can you see a picture at all with a flashlight? The pop concerns me.. This set has an issue with power supply failures.

  • Jane Johnson Oct 30, 2012

    I tried the flashlight on the tv screen and I could just barely see some color. When the screen went white it was like the picture was just fading out. Since the new inverter didnot help. what might the problem be?

  • Brad Brown Oct 31, 2012

    Since you have no qualms about taking it apart look for soda can looking components that appear to have popped or have bulges.

Look closely at the screen, use a flash light right against it and see if the screen is on but not being illuminated. If you can see something on the screen then the issue is the back light. If the back light is not coming on, the first thing to check is the inverter.

Tv went crack while watching. Picture and sound went out & red light flashing.Waited a min,turned off and back ok with picture and sound returning concerned if we should continue using or not?

As long as you can see and here the picture with no problems you should be fine. The tv's put it heat which make things expand and contract. Sometimes things creek and crack. I've had two tv's that do that. Don't hesitate to keep a fire extinguisher handy though along with some alarms.(houses should have these at all times anyways)
