    TV set is about a year old.  Today after using the DVD, I switched to the TV mode.  It displayed about 3 seconds then went black.  Sound is fine.  Turned off and on several times.  Same thing, the TV displayed about 3 seconds and went black.  DVD doesn't work now, too.

    Power light on display panel blinks, tests, makes a double chirp sound, then powers down and re-tests itself again. Repeats several times, all the while no screen video image, no audio image.

    the screen goes black and when I turn off the tv and turn it back on the screen comes back. this happened for a couple of weeks. Then the screen went black and it doesn't matter what I do it just stays black. I have sound but no picture. I have checked the power and the cable connections and the audio/video connections and there doesn't seem to be any problems with any of these connections.

    My TV was fine up until about a month ago and now I always get a black screen with audio working. This is really annoying.

Youtube on my vizio 470i tv is off centered

The TV can display images in four different modes: Wide, Zoom, Panoramic, and Normal. Each mode displays the picture differently. To change the screen aspect ratio:
1. Press the MENU button on the remote.
2. Use the Arrow buttons to highlight the Wide icon. Press OK.
3. Use the Arrow buttons to highlight your desired screen mode and press OK:
• Normal preserves the content's original aspect ratio. Since the 4:3 aspect ratio is not large enough to fill the TV's screen, black bars are added to the left and right of the display image.
• Wide stretches a 4:3 aspect ratio picture to the edges of the screen. Since the picture is being stretched, the display image may appear distorted. If the program is already formatted for widescreen viewing (1.85:1 or 2.35:1), then black bars will appear on the top and bottom of the display image.
• Zoom expands images with black bars to fit the screen.
• Panoramic expands the display image to fill the screen.
images may appear wider than intended.
If you are watching widescreen (1.85:1 or 2.35:1) content, black bars will still appear on the top and bottom of the display image. This option is only available when the TV is displaying a 480i/480p source.

No picture, just sound on Etec Flat Panel 40A99

Video circuit is separate from the Audio circuit. The main controller may switch to Audio, but if the unit is damaged from a power outage; part of the circuit board may not function. Needs professional servicing.

Have beko 32inch L C D , when i power on it comes on for a 5second and then the screen goes black, i still have sound, just no picture? model no 32WLK53OHID ITS NOT LED TIS IS LCD


Thanks for using FixYa. To check what has gone bad you’ll have to open the back of the unit and check the backlight inverter board. The inverter is the power supply source for the backlights. If that’s the issue then it’s always better to replace the inverter board completely just to avoid any future issues. If not then check the power supply board however, it seems to be the inverter board as the sound is still working fine.Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

It was working fine then no picture dark sceen sound work fine

More information is required. Your backlight is lit (screen not dark) but I need to know what you have connected to the TV (your sources) and how they are connected. Does the menu/OSD (on screen display) work?

Blank screen, cannot get menu to display, but sound works

Does the lcd screen have a glow to it ? Or is it really dim if u get real close to screen u can see images moving ?
it it has a glow to it you panel lighting is fine but you control board is bad. If you have a dark screen and see faint images you panel back lighting is out u can check the power with a meter at the connection to inverter board on panel.
