TV or Satellite Box Problem?

Hi everyone! This morning while watching the news before work, my TV screen suddenly went completely black. The sound, however, remained on. I waited and then the picture came back. I then attributed this to the TV station having "technical difficulties." I changed channels and everything seemed okay. I went back to my original channel and it happened again. Black screen, with sound only. I didn't have more time to play around with other channels as I had to leave for work but I did put the same channel on in the other room and it was working fine. My question is could there be a problem with the one satellite box or do you think it is the TV itself? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Do you have a VCR or DVD recorder? If yes, set it to record what you are watching. After a "blackout" rewind the tape and review it. If there is a blackout on the tape, the problem is the sallite box, if not, it is the TV! QED

Black screen

Hi katie_wood21,

About 80% of lcd tv failures are due to the backlight inverter, I suspect that is your problem.

An easy way to check it is:
  1. While tv is on and you have sound.
  2. Shine a flashlight on the screen.
  3. Loook very closely and see if you can see a video image.
If you are able to see video you have a backlight inverter failure.
If the tv is still under warranty you should begin the return or replacement process now. If no warranty you can take it to a local tv shop and pay about $250 to $350 for the repair, or you can repair it yourself.

Let me know your findings and I will assist further.

Please rate this solution, I know I didn't deliver good news but I gave you the truth without a big run around.
