    I have had my Lifestyles TV for 1 year in March which I purchased from HSN... Now all of a sudden it turns on but no picture / sound. ?? Any one have the schematics on this TV ? Maybe I can fix the problem myself.. ?? I called the company and they actually laughed and pretty much said " oh well " How many of you are having the same problems ? I think a class action suit is in order here. The company should stand behind their product . This is an outrage .

    I have a Digital Lifestyles 37 in. that I got a year and a half ago. The picture went out on it and I called the company and they were NO help. They said that there was nothing they could do. VERY FRUSTRATING!

The young man that I spoke with said that lots of people are having the same problem and there is nothing that they can do!!! who has 600.00 to give away!!!! Please let me know....I even called HSN and they told me that they have nothing to do about this product they just sell it they don't make the TV's.

    I have the same problem, i got my tv in march of last year on hsn, and i was told the same nonsense when i contacted hn and the company. if anyone has any suggestions please let me know. my next step is to file suit this has to be a defect if there is more that one person and that makes digital lifestyles responsible.

    We purchased our 37 inch Digital Lifestyles tv from HSN about a year ago. Same problem as everyone else - sound works but no picture. Will a TV service tech be able to solve this problem? Or should I just buy a new TV? This is a joke!

I've had the same problem. Usually, if I turn the TV off and then back on again, it's fine.

If you get some pictures the problem is most likely a bad tuner, as when directly connected a video source to the RF (Cable Coax) connector.
Try using an s-video cord instead.
If you never get any picturethe problem is related to the power supply, more precisely, the SMPS output is just a bit high causing the microprocessor to go into protection mode cutting off the horizontal oscillation, but as sound has a different power source from the SMPS, it will work without any problem. You will have to get to a qualified sercive engineer to fix this problem.

Samsung lcd tv has sound but no picture. Samsung TV works for about 10 minutes then screen go black but sound continues

Use a flashlight on the screen when it goes black. If you can see a faint picture then the board that controls the back light has gone bad. If you see no picture then the T-Con board is bad. You can get replacement parts here: TV Parts Universal TV Stands DLP Chips ShopJimmy and fix the TV yourself. It's not that difficult.

We will get a black screen but still have sound.

Sounds like a main board that controls everything on the screen and then some.

Since a LCD do the flashlight test (what I call it) : darken the room as much as possible and with a flashlight and the set on look closely at the screen, see a very very faint image of the picture or not?

Faint or no picture on olevia / syntax tv model LT-37HVS

When you tune to a station and get sound I presume the screen is black so do the following.
Place a bright flashlight against the screen. Look for an image around the edge of the flashlight.
If you see an image the problem is probably one of three causes.

1) Power to the inverter board is bad.
2) Inverter board has failed.
3) The CCFT(cold cathode fluorescent light) are dead.

Someone knowledgeable in electronics can diagnosis it.
