Led tv no picture


Sounds like fluorescent tube has gone, but you say this is LED? Newer tvs are LED. What you have, may be LCD, in which fluorescent tubes were used. You have no recourse.

Sanyo LCD TV no picture or sound with directTV


If the Direct TV box is working with other TVs, the problem is in the connection to the TV. In many TVs the automatic sensor works to detect what is being plugged in. In some, it has to be selected through the menu.

I have a Philips 15" LCD HDTV with no picture, but sound. How can I get the picture back. I don't have any audio or video connected, nor do I want any connected. The Model # is 15PF5120.


Hi

KIndly check antenna/cable connections. Are they properly secured to the TV’s ANT75ω plug? If they are then :
• Check the TUNER MODE control for the correct tuner setting.
• Try running the Auto Program feature to find all available channels.
• Press the AV button on the remote to make sure the correct signal source is selected.
• If using an accessory device, be sure that it is functioning properly.
• If in PC Mode, a video signal MUST BE present or the TV will turn off.

If this does not work then reset to the original factory settings by performing the following steps:

  1. Press the MENU button on the remote control to see the onscreen menu.
  2. Press the CURSOR DOWN button to highlight the INSTALL menu, then press CURSOR RIGHT to enter.
  3. Press the CURSOR DOWN button repeatedly to highlight the FACTORY RESET control, then press CURSOR RIGHT to enter.
  4. Press CURSOR DOWN to select “YES” to reset the original factory settings.
  5. Press the MENU button repeatedly to clear the menu from the screen.
Please do accept this solution and revert for further assistance.

Thanks
