Faint picture on screen

I can only see what is on the screen very faintly, unless I point a very bright light at the screen then I am able to see a little more. Even that is not bright enough for my eyes. Can you tell me a solution. God bless you.

Most likely the backlight on your LCD has gone out. See for a guide on replacing the backlight.

Powers on, no display

Do you have sound? If so, dim the lights in the room and shine a bright flashlight on the screen and see if you have a faint picture. If you have a faint picture, you have a backlight problem. On most of those sets, the backlight inverter is combined with the power supply so that power supply/inverter board will more than likely be the culprit!

Dp32648 picture goes black, tv stays on with sound.

Dim the lights in the room, turn on the set and shine a bright flashlight on the screen. Do you see a faint picture? If you see a faint picture, you have a backlight fault. Could be several things, you could have a bad backlamp, defective inverter, defective 24vdc power supply, or a faulty main board. I would highly recommend you get a diagnosis

No video or no brightness? If no brightness on a LCD get the room very very dark and with a flashlight on the screen look to see if a faint (very faint) image of the picture can be seen or not.

Hi my sony vio vgn txn 15p video is faint

If when you say faint you mean you can barely make out an image then the problem is most likely the backlight inverter in the screen assembly has gone bad. If what you mean is that the brightness got turned all the way down then it's just a matter of adjusting the brightness of the screen by holding down the function key (Fn) and pressing the LCD screen brightness adjustment keys noted usually by a picture of a sun or something similar accompanied by an up or down arrow.

Faint or no picture on olevia / syntax tv model LT-37HVS

When you tune to a station and get sound I presume the screen is black so do the following.
Place a bright flashlight against the screen. Look for an image around the edge of the flashlight.
If you see an image the problem is probably one of three causes.

1) Power to the inverter board is bad.
2) Inverter board has failed.
3) The CCFT(cold cathode fluorescent light) are dead.

Someone knowledgeable in electronics can diagnosis it.
