    The inputs are okay. The snow shows up on all other inputs. Eg. DVD player or DVR hook ups are also scrambling.

It sounds that the input connections to the set is poor. Check all the connections for tightness.

The port locations do not seem to line up the same so I'm pretty sure they are not interchangeable

SOURCE: popping/static sound coming out of

Hi hodges_ed,
This symptoms indicated of internal problem in the unit itself if the static sound is present in all inputs.
The is caused by the following reasons :
> Faulty power supply - once there an out-of-regulation condition on the power supply feeding the audio circuitry, static sound will produced to the speakers. This is commonly caused of leaky/dried filter capacitor. Leaky capacitor has a physical indication of fault like bulged/dome at the top or in the bottom and can easily identified. Dried capacitor has no physical indication of fault, you must have a capacitor checker to determine its condition.
> Faulty audio circuitry - Once the sound IC has a faulty internal circuitry, same symptom will produced. This is considered partially faulty and needs replacement. Another reasons is the faulty coupling/bias electrolytic capacitor in this section.
This kind of symptom is not DIY and I would advice you to look for a qualified technician to troubleshoot the problem.
Hope I help you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

Usually a sign of something draining the battery.
The machine test probably showed the battery could hold a charge and the alternator was charging the battery.
You may need to have someone check for a power drain.
When the key switch is off, there may be a weak short to ground or a relay or component that is using power.

I would suspect the backlight inverter is faulty:

I would try to look on the power supply first for popped capacitors that supply the 24v rail for the backlight inverter.

Having sound is a positive when it comes to repair. This means that only your screen is not lighting.

If you repair the 24v line and check the 5v feed also going to the BN_on (on) the backlight inverter and you still have no picture...you will need a new inverter.

This could also be the CCFL bulbs that are aging and need replacement. Those are around $20 each for a bulb

Hope this helps! Please rate :)

It's a connection inside the TV that's faulty. It could be as simple as reseating the ribbon cables that connect the control board to the glass display. Or it could be that the fault is on the board and needs to be replaced. The fact that the problem comes and goes should tell you it's fixable.

Lines coming down from the top of screen


Those lines are beaming in from the planet Alenod. For the moment you'll only be annoyed by those lines. But when those lines finally expand the entire surface of your screen you and everything in your viewing area will vaporize. Gosh, If I were you I'd chunk it as quickly as possible and buy a 47" Vizio! They're on sell at Sams! Pleeze hurry!!
