If the backlites are on the it is not the inverter or power supply. Better look at the digital / Main board.

No picture


Sounds like you have a backlight problem. To verify this, turn on the set, dim the lights in the room, and shine a bright flashlight on the screen. If you see a faint picture you have a backlight fault. It could be as simple as a bad capacitor in the power supply, or a faulty inverter board, or in rare cases a bad backlamp.

I have sound but no picture


oh, so that's your problem. I'm willing to bet you have a picture but just no backlight. Now does the screen come on briefly when you first turn the TV on? Or is the screen black at all times?? Turn on the TV, turn off the lights in the room. Take a very bright flash light and shine it one the screen.I bet you see a dim picture. It sounds like you have a backlight problem. Either you are missing 24VDC from the power supply, 3.3VDC "backlight on" signal from the main board, a bad inverter, or a bad backlamp.

Samsung LCD 46 inch half of the screen is darker than the other half.


Hi, while fixing another persons lcd tv i used lower rated power supply to try to fire up the tv ( picture-no sound) the bulbs ( actually cold cathode fluorescent ) lit up but only halfway. So sounds like the power supply for your backlight has gotten weak. You may try a workaround I've used on personal equipment, try turning down brightness on tv-this may,if your lucky, even out the brightness. hope this helped. Prodzilla

Acer aspirw 5100 brightness


1.The Function key (Fn), and the F6 key are pressed to turn the Backlight off to conserve power.

2.The Fn key and the right side arrow key, are pressed to increase Brightness.

You have a TFT LCD monitor screen. (Thin Film Transistor)
The LCD screen cannot be seen clearly without a Backlight.

The Backlight is a CCFL. Cold Cathode Fluorescent
tube. Resembles a small fluorescent tube used in residential, and commercial lighting.

The Backlight can go bad after time, and weaken.
If so, it will have to be replaced.

Sounds easy, it isn't.

The TFT LCD monitor screen is made up of layers. It's enclosed in a thin metal frame. Resembles a picture frame.

The frame is removed, after removing the LCD screen from the laptop's top cover.

The LCD screen transparent outside layers, are separated partially from the rest of the LCD screen.
The Backlight is removed out of the side.

This gives you an example of removing, and replacing an average Backlight,

LCD TV has sound but no picture.


Shine a small bright light at the screen when on and see if you can see a faint picture in the dark screen. If you can then your backlighting is not functioning due to ccfl (inverter), power supply, or back light lamps.

LCD TV PICTURE HAS GONE OFF BUT NOT SOUND?


If you've tried the backlight and brightness from the menu, you may have a more serious problem.
Try this;
Take a bright flashlight and place it against the LCD screen. See if you can see an image around the edge of the flashlight. If you see an image, you probably have one of three problems;
1) The inverter board is bad.
2) CCFT (cold cathode fluorescent light(s)) are dead
3) Power supply to inverter board is bad.
