Many fewer problems if you plug the tv power cord into a separate outlet without using a power strip. Also use a strong local station with volume turned up a little.

Change input device to some other like a DVD player and see. Check for loose contacts in power outlet, RC cable, jack and socket. Try resorting to factory default settings. If nothing works, you may have to look for any dry solders, leaky/dry capacitors on board.

Turn my plasma has audio but the picture is not visible black

A LCD may have backlights but Plasma sets do not for the most part.

If backlight does not come on--no voltage reaching it, not being turned on by the set, or backlight is bad.

Dell W1700 LCD TV static audio and b/w picture

Hi bsut96,
Check the cable between the monitor and the box for damage. Try a new cable. It may be a problem with the input board but it sounds like a cable problem. Let me know what you find and please rate this solution. Lone99star

Tube turns on nothing else does

If the Tv turns on (power supply is ok), screen lights up (inverters are ok) but don't get a blue screen, menu options, source options, or audio, it's most likely the main board (aka Motherboard) is faulty. If a DVD player is hooked upto the TV, check whether you can get audio from that (change the source using remote), in such a case it could be a problem with LCD Interface board. My $3 is on faulty Main board.
