Re: No Picture, clicking noise in rear of set

I have the same set and had the same problem. I repalced the DT board and now its fine except I have no video signal. I get sound all day long!! I also have the on screen menu to make adjustments but still no video from any input.

Re: No Picture, clicking noise in rear of set

First unplug the set for about 10 secs and plug it back in to force it to reboot its firmware. The on/off switch does not do this. It takes about 10 seconds for the reboot to occur so wait that long then turn on the TV with the on/off switch. If that doesn't work try a factory reset. Turn off the TV. Open the front door on the TV and HOLD the OK button down and then press and HOLD the power button at the same time for about 2-3 seconds. Hopefully you will see a screen come up and say Self Check. The TV does some built in tests and then goes to the menu screen like it came out of the box. You will have to reprogram all your stations and settings.

Re: No Picture, clicking noise in rear of set

This may be a power supply relay actuating, What I would suggest is taking this set to a TV repair shop since the attempt to try to repair this yourself may lead to further complications.

JVC LT40A320 turns on but no picture. Replaced Power Supply & Backlight Inverter (TV was hit by a lightning surge, would not do anything at first) now the green light comes on but no picture or sound.

Since your TV was struck by lighting, the power supply is the first board that gets affected by the sudden change in AC power.. The main board is the next board due to the fragile components and the excess of voltage that is supplied to it when the lighting happened. Since you have replaced the power supply already.. I would suggest to replace the main board and that should restore the functionality on your TV.

My Samsung TV doesn't show a picture, when there was a picture audio and remote not working. Which boards need replaced?

If there is no audio then most likely your main board. If your red power stand by light blinks less than 3 s then its the M/B. If its more than 3 s then its the P/B.

TV does not have a picture, however when the power button is tuned off and then on the IR light blinks and there is a LOUD clicking noise coming from the speakers. The remote control seems to work fine,...

Plasma and LCD TV sets are prone to having capacitors in the power supply section fail. This is the most likely cause for the probem you describe. When capacitors fail your will commonly see one or more of the following symptoms.
  • No video, Power light is on or blinking.
  • TV is making a clicking noise.
  • TV takes a while to come on
  • Screen is very dim or flickers.

Again, You can get a power supply repair kit with the parts, detailed instructions, and support from sites such as . Or just click here to see more details on their kit.

Here are pictures of capacitors...Notice that the ones below look bloated. They have failed and will need to be repalced.

Capacitor being replaced! Fairly easy DIY fix.

There are some factors of this kind of problem.

First you could have a failure in the power supply. Next could be the main board. Lastly you could have a problem with the panel itself, this would mean a new set for sure because the part cost is more than a new set.

However try troubleshooting the problem before spending money on repairing or replacing the television. Possibly you can restore the picture and sound to your television ...

Verify the TV is powered on by pressing the power button on the TV's remote or the front panel of the set. This may seem like an obvious step, but many TVs are equipped with a standby light that will illuminate if the TV is turned off, making it appear that the TV is on when it is not.Cycle through the TV's video inputs to verify that your TV is set to the right one. For instance, if you are attempting to use a digital cable converter box that is plugged into the Video 1 input and the TV is set to a Video 2 input that has nothing plugged into it, the TV will not display any picture or sound and may even say "No signal" on the screen. To cycle through the inputs, use the input selection button, typically labeled "input," "source," "TV/video" or the like.

Re-seat the video and audio input connections to verify a loose cable is not causing the TV's loss of signal. If you have a coaxial cable connected from your wall cable jack directly into the TV, it may have come loose thereby eliminating all picture and sound on the TV. Locate the connection cable or cables of whatever device you are attempting to watch and unplug them from where they plug into the TV. Plug them back in and check for a signal. If there is still no picture or sound at this point, the best option is to contact technical support for further assistance.

No picture, just a red blinking light

First make sure to hit the menu button on the TV's remote and if nothing is there then friend while the set is on turn a bright flashlight on and shine at angle into the set push the TV menu button if you can see a image then your back light is not working.
Cost backlights around 150.00 and power supplies around 100.00. Well this should help you friend.

Picture stays on black

I had this same exact issue yesterday. I own the same TV model and here is what SONY had me do to get the picture back. Ultimately the picture comes back, but it will be very dim and needs repair. Most likely a power supply issue. Try these steps:

-Press power off or leave with standby light on for 5 minutes (wait the full 5 minutes)
-Unplug TV / Press top buttons 5 times each to remove static from system boards (yes, each button 5 times each)
-Wait one full minute and plug TV in and press power on
