Question about Televison & Video

2 Answers

Hi, I was looking at TV and I sat on the remote and the TV went black but, now I can't get the picture back. the sound was on and I could still change the channels but now I can't get anything

Do I need to buy a new TV or is it something minor because, all I did was sit on the remote and the screen went black. I can't pull up the menu or nothing.

Simply setting on your remote would not break your tv. I would say it is the remote They do sell remotes for all tv sets they are called universal remotes and are easy to pick up at wal-mart or radio shack. Have the model# and brand of tv written down so they can match one up. I would take the remote with me as well for the frequency # to matcxh one up. Try to reset the remote first. if that does not work go with a universal

SOURCE: RCA L26WD21 No picture/white screen but still have sound

It sounds like the LCD controller board went out, look inside to see if the cable may have come off the LCD controller board. You can look and see what it looks like here: http://www.shopjimmy.com/catalogsearch/result/?q=RCA+L26WD21+
Please post back what you find.

SOURCE: my LG HD tv screen suddenly went green. sound is

Hi,
I disagree with info provided, if screen of your LG lcd tv becomes green that means inverter board is working and lcd tv does not have convergence ICs.
Please unplug tv from ac wall socket for minute to get it reset, replug back in and turn it On and check its picture.
If still showing green screen then change input source with remote, if tv shows same green screen on all inputs that means its either lcd panel problem or digital signal processor got bad loacted on main board. Local tv repairman is needed to confirm and fix it.
Thanks.

TV screen went black, sound is intact, can I fix it?


This sounds like you accidentally hit the input button on your remote. It will either be INPUT or SOURCE on you remote. Turn on your TV and source(cable box) and hit one of those buttons until your picture comes back

I have a Vizio 37" HDTV that recently started losing the picture. The sound has been on continually but the picture now flashes steadily but mostly remains black. It went out one day, came back afte


it sounds like a backlight issue. It could be as simple as a few bad caacitors. If you already replaced the set and you just want $$$ toss it on your local Craigslist as a parts/repair set. There's always TV shop owner and parts scavangers that will buy the set as is. Price wise, if the set is in good condition and come with remote, and pedestal, I would ask $60 as is but you may get more

Cable damage is the first thing to check. If the cable is external this is an easy check by trying a new one. Otherwise it is probably internal cable damage or damage to the video output plug.

No picture just av1


If the cat sat on the remote, it is likely it changed the tv to AV1. Just find the AV button on the remote and press it again and again. It should cycle through the different AV channels your TV has - my TV has 6 AVs, 2 HDMI and a PC channel so if yours is anything like mine, you may need to press several time to get back to your Sky/freesat/virgin box. Alternatively, some HDMI connected kit just needs turning off and on. That then sends a signal to the TV which changes the TV automatically. For example, my Blu-ray player does that.
Experience - I have a cat that sits on my remote and does the same thing!!

Tv made a loud pop sound then the picture went bad. next mornting when turned on the tv has black stuff in it that slowling melted away then the picture was still bad


Hi
A common problem for these is bad capacitors in the power supply, Remove the back from your TV and look at the power supply on the left hand side.

You will see roughly around 9 x capacitors that are bulged / domed shaped on top usually these are valued at 3300uf 10V any that have bulged or leaked a brown like substance should be changed.
This will cure the problem as they overheat being sat next to a heatsink that gets very hot!
Try and change them for the same 3300uf but a higher voltage.
Hope this helps

Big Black Square


It turns out that the Closed Caption option was turned on somehow. When I turned that off the Black Square went a way and did not return.
