Question about Televison & Video
I have a motorola vip1200 satellite box and it fell. Now all there lights are on (link, hd, and record) and it won't power off without unplugging it, and all I'm getting is a black screen. I've checked all the cords and plugs and everythings hooked up fine. Can I fix this problem on my own?
Does it belong to a Cable or Satellite company? Just ask them to look at it and/or change it.
If it is yours, it may be that the fall has dislodged the mainboard, power unit or switch unit. You need to get inside it and check for boards or components that are not properly inserted/located.

Unfortunately not really, it is the video board of the LCD that has failed, it is a major repair to say the least. You can check with a local repair shop to estimate the repair, but it will be spendy :(. I'm so sorry about the bad news there, but that's definitely what it is. If you happened to purchase the TV with a major credit card (not a debit card) there is a good chance it may still be under the free extended warranty most credit cards place on electronics. Please contact your credit card company to inquire if they do this, and they will be able to file the claim and get you a refund for the TV.

Check the fuses on the power board. there is one fuse on primary side and one on secondary side.
Take of back panel and follow plug into the tv.where it ends is the power board.always use caution.the capacitors in there hold high voltage even after unplugged for a couple of days.Discharge capacitors before servicing the board.
