Question about Insignia 42" LCD Flat-Panel HDTV
I have 42 insignia NS-42pdp I have sound but, no picture
If your TV is less then a year old, still under manufacturers warranty. If not under warranty the defective parts could be the power supply or the back light inverter board. Both boards can be replace easily.
The way to know if you have a defective backlight inverter is by shinning a light from a flash light near the screen with the TV on and check in a 45 degrees angle if you have a dark video in the background, if the video is present then you have a backlight board failure. If no video, then is a power supply failure.
I have both boards if you want to buy them.
Let me know if you require further assistance.

If an LCD TV has sound but no picture do the following:
Use the source button to ensure that source is not set to the wrong input.
Try unplugging power cord for ten minutes, to ensure it is not a setting problem.
Check all the video cables at the back of TV.
Check Light /Color settings.
If problem persist and does not depend on external receiver or settings, then it is likely an internal fault.
If it has sound but no picture then one of the following parts is faulty, and must be tested and replaced:
Theinverter is the high voltage board that provides variable power to thebacklight lamp. This is the most common. When inverter is faulty youcan get no picture, or a very dim picture that can only be seen bypointing a torch light with a 45 degree angle on the LCD surface fromvery near distance.
The inverter must be tested by reading voltages with a multimeter.
The LCD ribbon cable/LCD display and connectors.
Thisis quite uncommon, but happens. If the TV had been hit or moved the LCDcable may have slipped out, or the LCD connector may be damaged.
The LCD controller board.
Thisis the board that controls the video signal, it is difficult to test,as there is need to read determined values on IC pins. To test thisboard you need to purchase a service manual and follow thetroubleshooting diagrams on service manual.
Input/Output Signal boards.
This are the boards where youconnect the video and audio cables, if a signal board is defective,then you may get no picture on particular inputs located on faultyboard.
If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual.
If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.

the pic attached is an electrolytic capacitor, they come in different sizes and are usually blue, black and sometimes yellow. depending on manufacture.
most of the problems I have heard of tvs having problems with the electrolytic capacitors going bad. if you open the tv and see one of those swollen or leaking you need to replace them.
