Re: picture goes blank

What type of TV is this unit? An LCD or Plasma?

If it's an LCD, take a close look at the screen with a Flashlight and see if you can see some sort of picture (Almost like a ghost of an image). If this is the case, the backlight has failed.

If it's a plasma unit, you're probably looking at a power supply issue to the panel.

Thomson flat panel tv has sound but no picture (comes on for about a second then goes blank)

if you can see if the screen lights from behind when the picture apears for a second then the problem is probably the invertor or worse the screen

My hannspree tv screen goes black blank

If the picture shows a picture briefly upon power up then goes off after a few seconds, you have a back light fault. It could have a problem in the 24vdc circuit, failing back light inverter board, or a blown CCFL lamp.

Picture goes blank and then comes back, it does it randomly but quite often. Other times it doesn't happen at all. There is no interruption in sound. Any idea what the problem is?

Is the sound affected too? Do you hear a clicking noise when the picture goes off? Is there a dull glow on the screen when the picture goes off? Sounds like a power supply/ inverter related fault but just to be sure.

Lcd32880hdf 10 months old. When switched on the picture disappears after 2/3 seconds and will not come back on. Sound still remains un-effected.??

If you can quickly get to menu before picture goes blank, then go picture / backlight / set backlight to minimum and it will work fine.
