SOURCE: Screen on and off

HI,

I don't think you did any damage. It is probably not hooked up properly.

Go back and check all connections and cables.
You may have caused an internal open connection or cold solder joint to quit. Do a little banging on the set with your hand or fist to vibrate it enough to scare a poor connection back to work!
HERE ARE FEW MORE TROUBLESHOOTING STEPS YOU CAN TRY:

ONE: Check the line cord. Wiggle both ends near the molded part.
TWO:Do a hard reset by unpluging all the cords for 4hrs and then plug it back.

THREE:The whacking test is to just bang or smack the set with your hand on the back, side, top, etc., to see if there are loose connections or cold solder joints inside that are acting up. If so, the banging should knock them back to normal and the set should restore. You might have to use some creative banging and some have had to put a book or magazine under one corner to torque the chassis enough to get it to work reliably.

If the problem still persists then like i said before,you will have to get it repaired by a technician.

Goodluck,
Please don't forget to rate the solution AS FIXYA.

SOURCE: screen goes dark, sound goes quiet...

I have a sony KDF-E60A20 projection tv. The picture would go out for about 30 seconds and come back on. It would continue to cycle this way. The green power light would stay on and not flash. The sound would go off when the picture went out and come back on when the picture came back on. I tried taking the bottom cover off the back exposing the fan and blowed it out with a vacuum cleaner, also taking out the bulb and blowing it out. That didn't help. So I ordered a new bulb from Advancedlamps.com and that's what it was. I have now had it on and off for two days and no problems. Cost of lamp was $107.00 including shipping. Good Luck!

SOURCE: Our Sony Bravia tv picture keeps going light dark

I have Sony KDL-32XBR9 and I have noticed a similar problem. When the picture is showing mostly black, for example during the ending credits of a movie, the TV will further darken the display. Once the picture lightens back up, the TV will adjust the brightness of the display back to normal. I just called Sony customer support and they indicated it was a firmware problem and they will be sending a USB device in the mail to update the firmware. Hope this helps.

Worth a look at above, Hmmm??

Above is your service and repair manual for download.

What is happening is there is an internal "Fault" that is causing the Protection Circuitry , to detect the problem, and attempt to shut down the set. When we keep restarting the set, it may work briefly again, because as soon as it shuts down, the "Faulty" component(s) cool down?, and the "Fault" ostensibly "Clears" so the PSU starts up again, only for the component(s) to heat up, whatever, again and fail, so it shuts down, and if left unattended, this would continue on until the part eventually failed. Any fault that involves the power supply is usually quite serious, and needs a professional, usually, unless one is familiar with servicing current day, televisions.

my professional recommendation, you should get a "Quote" for repair, from, an, Approved Service Center. Now, this point is very important for a good result, Always contact, their "Local" or a, "Head Office" Sony, in your case. Ask them, for a referral to an authorised servicing center, where you ask for a "Quote". Now, when you get the information you want, then you can decide as to repair of replacement.

The reason we want an approved agent, is that way, all the engineers are trained on their own brand sets, they have seen almost all faults, and will get the job done quicker, and for less cost, and usually have parts on hand, also sometimes, there has been a service bulletin in issued and the repair may be subsided or even free. There are many, many, many reasons that display this symptom, one must work through the troubleshooting steps to isolate and identify, the Cause and repair that and any damage done.

Replaced the 4 power capacitors now tv runs for 15min. then picture turns black and volume stays on


when the picture goes black, dim the light in the room and shine a bright flashlight on the screen. If you see a faint picture, you have a backlight problem. If this issue came about after you installed the capacitors, double check the installation of your caps. Ensure that you don't have cold solder joints or broken joints!

I have had my 55" Vision for a year and a half. Today I was watching a movie and the picture went dark and audio stayed on. If I turned the TV off and then back on it would light up with no Vision logo...


Sounds like you have a backlight problem. To verify this, turn on the set and dim the lights in the room. Take a bright flashlight and shine it on the screen. If you see a faint picture, you either have a back inverter or a bad backlight bulb.

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.

Tv comes on then picture goes out but still has sound but no picture


Sounds like a back light failure. To verify this, turn on the set, dim the lights in room. Shine a bright flash light on the screen, if you see a faint picture on the screen, you have a back light failure. You either have a blown back lamp, 24v circuit fault, or a failed inverter board.

Hi the tv started to go dark then it would be ok then dark and the same when dvds played do get sound now black screen nothing at all


Hmm
Looks like the back light or the driver circuit has failed.
If you shine a bright torch at the screen can you see a very faint image ?
If so then its the back light has gone.
If you cant see anything its the screen driver.

Picture is very very dark.


Vizio and their only authorized repair specialist (ITI) does do out of warranty repairs at a flat rate, you may want to give them a buzz.

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.
