TV power light comes on, but no picture

My tv was working just fine. Then one day I went to turn it on, and it won't come on. The green power light comes on, but the screen remains black. Also when I turn on the speakers, I can hear whatever is on the channel, but again, no picture. Any solutions?

    Hey lone99star, thank you for giving me some advice here. So I tried toshine a light in it, but all i could see was the reflection of thebulb. :( It's gotta be the Backlight Inverter though. Whats the trickto fixing that? Something I can do myself?

    Hey lone99star, thanks for your input. So I tried with the flashlight/lamp and all I could see was the reflection of the light. I'm almost positive it has to be the Backlight Inverter. What's the trick to fixing them, and is it something I can do myself?

I have the same problem. I now turn the TV on manually and tilt it forward at the same time. This has been working for about 6 months now. I don't know why tilting it forward gets the picture back but that could be part of the problem going on internally. I cannot afford to get it fixed. The TV is only 2 years old. We thought we were buying a good product. Guess Not. Try this.....

Hi cheerlead805, I am happy to help Unfortunatly you have a bad Backlight Inverter. Just to make sure my diagnosis is correct I will need you to test it. Turn the tv on to a point where you have sound. Take a flashlight or a lamp with a bare bulb and shine it on the screen, look vary closely at the screen, you should be able to see a very dark video image. Let me know what you find and I can help with parts and replacement. Please rate this solution. Lone99star

    I have been unable to find the part at a decent price, I did find the inverter for the 4u here is a link

    We will need to take your inverter out and compare them, as long as the connections are the same it will work. Let me know when you would like to get started and we can go into chat for the disassembly.
    Just courious though, why are you so sure it is the inverter? Like I said before you should be able to see a dark image when you have sound, you could hear the tv when you shined the light right?

The power comes on and then turns off and the front green power light blinks.


There is a small IC in the power supply section,
not the IC regulator that's the problem.

TV wont turn on, makes buzzing noise and shuts off


I have two RCA HD52W59 TV's. I have had one for 3 years and one 4 years. The one I have had for 4 years is giving me the problem. Last week the tv turned off while watching it. It wouldnt come right back on. 10 minutes later we tried and it worked fine. the other night the kids were watching and it turned off and smelled like something burning. I tried turning it right back on and got no power at all. I tried to turn it on two days later and it made a buzzing noise and the green light went out. Never did get a picture, no powering up on the screen. Any ideas? Don't want to spend alot of money. Really loved the TV hope it isnt junk now. Better yet I hope the same thing doesnt happen to the other one I have.

Samsung lcd tv ltm1755b won't turn on (power light stays red)


Problem: Samsung LTM1755B with only a blinking yellow LED when you try to turn it on.

Solution: I just had one of these come in. I opened it up, and found the U501 capacitor a little suspicious looking, in that it had a deformed top. It was a 470uF 16V electrolytic 105degC 10mm x 12mm. I replaced it with a very good quality 1000uF 16V electrolytic 105degC 10mm x 16mm Nichicon UHN1C102MPD. After that repair, when I tried to turn it on, the LED was yellow for a second, then green, then I got a picture, and it appeared to work great. I then asked the owner a week later how it was working, and they said it was working just like new!
