Question about Norcent Technologies LT-2722 27 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

No display/picture. Sound and power work perfectly.

The title basically says it all. One day, out of the blue, I turned on the TV set and the picture would not load. I had perfect sound, could change channels, could switch inputs. The TV looks as though it is going to work fine at first but the screen cuts out just before the picture should appear.

I found three potential solutions.
1) There is someone on Craigslist who I was in contact with via e-mail. He said he could fix the problem for $100-$200 if I ship him the TV set. He is based in Canada somewhere.

2) There is a guy on E-bay who claims to be an expert. He auctions 20 minutes of time on the phone with you and his auction starts at a few dollars plus a $16 "shipping fee" that he says must be paid before he will talk to you. His auction even lists the exact Norcent problem, although the auction ended already. In his product description he says he knows how to fix "some frequent issues such as Norcent: TV on but no display."

3) I found a shop called All Electronics in Raleight, NC that claims to have worked on Norcent's before.

So, I decided to bring my TV to Raleigh. They took it last week and charged me $20 and told me they'd call me as soon as they had a chance to diagnose it. I decided not to spend $50 to ship it to Canada or $20 to talk to some stranger. I will update this when I hear back from All Electronics.

    I called All Electronics yesterday, I hadn't heard from them since dropping off my TV and they said for $130 they can fix the TV. The solution above was correct. It was an inverter board (I did not get a chance to use the flashlight method b/c I had already dropped off my tv) I told them yesterday around 4:30 to go ahead with the work, they called me at 10:15 today and said the TV was ready.

    So, if you're in a similar situation I would advise you finding a decent electronics repair shop, telling them its the inverter board, and saying that the work should be done for around $150. I guess you could try to fix it yourself, however, I don't know where/how to get a new inverter board or how to install one. I wouldn't send the TV to canada under any circumstances, nor would I call the "expert" on ebay.

    Good Luck!

Based on your problem listing I believe you have an LCD tv.
You can check your tv by turning it on to a station that normally
shows a good picture. Shine a bright flashlight and place it against the screen. Look around the edge of the flashlight for an image moving around. If you see it, your problem is with the inverter/CCFL..

How to set perfect color on samsung 48" led smart tv

To achieve true life like colors, the primary colors need to be balanced to produce a perfect black and white picture. Turn the color level on the tv to 0 and tint to middle then look at the picture - does it have a reddish or other "coloration" to it? Then set the individual color levels (if your TV has these settings) of red, blue and green to balance out and get a true black and white picture. After that, bring the color level up slowly until the facial levels are natural - not over driven as seen in most store displays. You may need to use tint control slightly.....
One other way - There is a dvd from Disney called "Wow" that aids in getting your set to optimum display.

I have 60inch plasma tv. the power is on an the blue light,but no sound an no menu or picture.can you help me pls?

Please cycle the unit through the various inputs to make sure it is on one with something hooked up to it.

Either that or a defective cable someplace--double check the hookup and start with just a DVD or something connected to a single input to see for yourself if any input is working.

The inputs are of course different from the cable fitting and it is possible for the tuner in the set not to work but the rear audio/video inputs to work.

Let me know what you find.

Philips 23PF9966/37 color problem!

Most likely you can adjust it in the Service Alignment Mode (SAM).

Press 062596 followed by the STATUS button (upper left). Navigate to "White Tone", press the right key to enter and select "Normal" mode. Set the colors:

Red = 135, Green = 128, Blue = 133.

The "Cool" and "Warm" menus are deltas from the "Normal" settings:

COOL: R -3, G -1, B 5
WARM: R 2, G -3, B -13

Press the "MENU" button to return to the main menu, then the "Power" button to turn the TV off.

I have a GE TV model: 27GT271 and no sound

Possible cause of the problrm is bad/poor solder on the grounds for the tuner circuit shield an the bottom (solder side) of the circuit board. Grounds need a wire jumper from point to point. This was a common problem for those sets and ocassionally it would take out the eeprom chip with it. (Various other problems were shrinking picture/fuzzy picture and intermitt. power)

"I am also having difficulties in try to display the yamaha set up menu on the tv."
According to the manual the display menu for TV will not work with HDMI hook up.
I also have a Panasonic HD TV and can't get TV sound through my Yamaha AVR on "TV Sound" mode.  Trying to use HDMI cable for this also.  Do I need a digital optical cable or do I not have something set right?

JVC 42 inch LCD HD TV has no picture or sound

utencilio posted this fix. It worked for my JVC LT-42X579.

Okay, I found a fix! Called JVC, spoke to somebody there, here it is:
1)unplug the TV completely, no wall no power strips, completely
2)wait 10 sec
3)plug TV back in and Turn it on, the light will still be doing the same thing
4)wait 30 sec
5)ON THE TV, not the remote, locate the menu, volume (-) and power button.
6)while simultaneously holding down the menu and volume (-) button, pressed the power button ONCE and continue to hold the other 2 for 10 sec.
7)on the remote control, go to menu>settings>system info
*** now this I know as a FACT will work on systems that display: JVC - ver.5.32FO001, but I don't know of any other versions***
8)press the mute button on the remote twice
9)unplugg TV again and wait 10 sec.
10) plug TV in and turn on

It SHOULD be working normally now... Thanx to the guys a JVC support for this one, I know it seems like an obvious first place to look, but sometimes it isn't. I for one checked online forums first
