    I have the same thing. I turn it on and get sound but no just a black screen. I can't get source list to come up or menu or anything. I know it is not my satellite service because my other TV works fine. This is the 3rd time it has done it and the TV is only 2 years old.

    Same problem with mine.  Turned the tv on this morning and I can hear the sound but not see anything, not even menu, sound bars, etc.  Channels change, side buttons work, but no picture.

I think it is the inverter- can anyone confirm?

Posted on Sep 13, 2008


Bad main board; unfortunately the company refuses to sell parts for the fix. They want you to ship it to them for the repair. Someone should sue them for selling a crappy item and don't supply parts.

Screen goes black but sound is good.

This sounds like the inverter which powers the display fluorescent has or is failed/failing. If you take a torch to the blacked out display can you see the image faintly? If so the unit needs repairing.

Cat stepped on remote TV went black have sound but no picture i have tried every menu option?

Try doing this:

Self-check indication only:

Produce TV reception screen, and while pressing [VOLUME ( - )] button on the main unit, press [OK] button on the remote control

for more than 3 seconds.

Self-check indication and forced to factory shipment setting:

Produce TV reception screen, and while pressing [VOLUME ( - )] button on the main unit, press [MENU] button on the remote

control for more than 3 seconds.

9.1.2. Exit
Disconnect the AC cord from wall outlet.
This is straight out of the service manual.

Sound goes up all the way and no controll

Remote Control volume UP could be sticking inside the remote itself. Remove batteries and manually turn TV on and see if sound works ok.

Tv has no picture but sound is ok

First of all, change the input device to something you know works for sure. Look for any jammed buttons on remote or on control panel. (This can happen, if you inadvertently sit on the remote hidden under a magazine or newspaper) Check the picture settings to ensure that these are ok. If problem persists, it might need attention by a qualified service technician.

Trutech 16190 no remote

Try the Universal remote control URC-R6 it works fine with my Truetech.
The bad thing about my Truetech PLV16190 19" Flatscreen, 30days after I purchase the remote the tv went out. Screen Black, but sound works fine.

Black screen only on new LCD

Sounds like the video board when bad. I would say the TV went defective. Use the 90 day warranty to exchange for a new one.
Always use warranty at this point because the newer TV coming out in these days have very lame warranty.
