Normally, when this happens, the TV goes into " Protection Mode " because of a failing circuit board.Most likely the TV has a power supply related problem. It's possible that it maybe a bad capacitor or transformer on the power supply board. Or, it maybe something simple like a blown fuse inside the TV.The most common thing to go out on flat panel TVs is the circuit board that supply power to the screen. Commonly called a Backlight Inverter Board. But, I can't say it's 100% the problem because I can'tactually look at the tv over the internet. I can only make guesses with the symptom.

You have a few choices:

1. You can try leaving the TV unplugged for 30 minutes so the TV can reset itself.
2. If by chance the TV is still under warranty, go that route.

3. If you have some electronic experience, if you can find and purchase a Service Manual over the internet; It will help you diagnose the source of the problem and fix it by soldering in the new part. The Service Manual will give you red light flashing codes, circuit diagrams, test points, and part# lists.Usually, cost under $20. And most cases the new part cost less than $15.

4. Pay a TV shop to do the repairs. It maybe costly, but get an estimate of how much they will charge. That way you can decide if it worth repairing or replacing the whole TV.

I hope I shed some light on the subject for you.

No sound no picture vizio 52 inch 2 years old


That is exactly what it is. Mine, as well, (1yr and 4mos old) went out. But my sound, eventually, went out as well. However, I was lucky and had the two year warranty and it was covered. Apparently this is an issue. The fella's that picked up the TV made the remark that "this is another one". Starting to wonder about Vizio...didn't take me long to find several of the same issues as I was searching the net and within a short span of time at that. :o\
Good Luck!

Lcd tv has black cloudy line from top of screen about 1 inch wide and 4-5 inch long down the screen


This problem is not just for Philips. I've found similar complaints online for JVC, and my Vizio 32" LCD has the same problem. In my case the TV is about 3 years old and has a lot of hours on it.
