    I have thesame problem, my backlight goes out after 3 seconds. I ordered a inverter board from tgis place for $129.00

    I installed the board and the tv still does not work! I wonder if they gave me a bad board. Is there anything else that would cause the tv to act like the inverter board is bad? The green light is on, I have sound and can see the picture if I shine a light on the screen but the backlight goes out in a few seconds when I turn it on. Someone please help I am pissed that I might have blown #129.

Sound but no picture

The first thing that comes to mind is that the brightness and contrast or turned all the way down. See if you can't turn them up. Otherwise it may be the backlight inverter or backlight itself. Most likely the inverter, sometimes you can tell by looking really close to the screen, if you can still see a faint image then the inverter needs to be replaced. Probably a job for a technician but that depends how comfortable you feel opening up the TV and ordering parts online.

Good Luck!

Do the flash light test----with set on in a very dark room with the light directed at the screen do you see a faint image or not?

No picture but sound

Turn on the set and get a strong light and bring it up to the screen. Do you see a faint image on the screen? If you do, then your backlight has failed. It may be one of the many lamps, or the inverter circuit or the power supply for the lamps.

The colored lines usually indicate a broken screen from an impact...unlikely unless someone hit the screen just before the picture went out.

Picture goes black but still has sound

Use a strong light next to the screen and look for a faint image on the screen. If you see a faint picture, your backlight has a problem. Service shop time. Not a simple fix.

Tv turns on but noooo picture

any sound? Try holding a strong light against the screen when it is on and try and see if there is a faint picture. If there is a faint picture, then it is a backlight problem.

Audiovox model FPE3000, has sound and picture but

There are two places to look for the problems, the backlight inverter board and the power supply. Look at the power supply first since it is easier to get to, look for burnt parts, bad capacitors, etc.
Please post back what you find.
