Audiovox AVT988 9" TV Problem


We just purchased an older van, and the tv that is in it, the sound will work, but no picture. We brought it in the house, and has the same problem. I am thinking about taking it to tv repairman to see what he can do, since the tv has a special plug I guess, so the passengers in the back can use headphones. What do you think? Thanks!

    We just purchased a dodge caravan and are having the exact same problem with the tv no picture just sound. I was wondering did you ever get yours fixed or find a replacement tv. Please let me know. I have a 2 year old that really misses his tv.

Guess there is a problem with the video Circuitry of your TV. it could be as simple as cold solder or could be worse as IC troubles. if you have no experience with electronic troubleshooting/servicing then its better if you send for repair. since there is still sound from your tv, it won't have a major problem.

Picture went out on 2-year-old Samsung TV model UN50EH5000F. I have sound and full backlight but no video.

You have replaced everything that could have gone wrong - except for the video Screen itself. Check the connections (ribbon) to the screen for oxidation - use eraser to clean.

Both the picture and sound work when the TV is turned on, yet the picture is distorted like a double picture and has a yellow hue to it.

Sounds like you have a convergence problem. If you go into the setup menu of your TV, there should be some settings to adjust the red, green and blue hues and re-position them so each color matches up. If this does not work or if you don't have a menu, your TV *might* have a circuit board with several plastic screws on it. These adjust the picture and it's a very tedious task to re-align each hue correctly.

My projection TV is an older model from 1995, which is probably why it has this circuit board in place of a convergence menu built into the TV.

If adjusting the convergence still doesn't work, you might need to purchase a new convergence chip.

No picture but has sound

Hi If your t.v.has built-in blue screen when there is no signal, then the DVD may have been accidentally switched to progressive scan mode, or defaults to that setting if new. If your T.V. is not capable of displaying in progressive scan mode, you will just get a blue screen. If you have an older tv, without blue screen, then connect it to that, and if you get a black and white split screen when you turn on the DVD, then progressive scan is the problem. Check the manual for the DVD player for the procedure to get out of that mode, and it should then work. If you still have no video, and you are using the yellow composite video jack on the back of your DVD player, then it must be brought in for service. Good Luck!
