Picture goes out after 1 second, audio is fine

I have had this TV for a little over 3 years and all of a sudden, the picture went out. Now when I turn it on with a source present, I get picture for under 1 second, then nothing, audio continues to work fine, and if I hit Menu within that second, I can catch a glimpse of it (so menu is working). I have tried all the available inputs and they all respond the same way (no pic after 1st second of power). I have guestimated that the main board is out on the TV, but am not able to purchase a replacement main board from Viewsonic (discontinued and out of stock!). Even checked the fuse on the power board which seems fine.

Please help!!

Re: Picture goes out after 1 second, audio is fine

The problem is not the mian board but the DC to DC inverters that drive the lamps behind the panels some manufactures make them available seperate from the panel but most are a part of the panel. so the whole panel may have to be replaced.

The set will need to be properly diagnosed to narrow down the problem. You could be looking at a bad inverter, bad CCFL lamp, fault in power supply or main board.

The picture goes blank after about 3 or 4 minutes. I have to shut it off and wait a few seconds and turn it back on. It does this 3 or 4 times and then it seems to stay on.

Picture goes out right after turning on, have to

My 3 year old Sharp LC-40C32U would start up fine but within a minute would go dark (audio continued fine). For a while I could turn the set off and on again and it would be fine, but over time this became less effective. My solution, which has worked for a week now, was to a) unplug the set's power cord; b) after 3 minutes plug it back in and turn the set on; c) on the remote hit MENU and slide over to SETUP (3 clicks to the right if the screen is dark) and one up to RESET; d) hit ENTER and follow the prompts. This puts the set in it's factory configuration so you will have to rescan for channels. Worked for me.
