No pic, no sound

Just died on me recently. If I continously hit the TV/monitor button on the remote or TV while moving the mouse, the computer screen comes on for a second and then disappears. Weird. No TV whatsoever. I real piece of work this is to die after 4 years. Thoughts? Thank you.

AOC L24H898 - Several problems. 1)Only 3 Display modes - AV, HDMI, PC. 2)In PC mode screen is white with barely-discernable Desktop. 3) Menu button does nothing (pressing Channel + and - together lo

This sounds like a common problem on these TVs (it's happened to both of my AOC TVs a couple times). Try a factory reset:

1. Press and hold "Menu" and "Channel+" on the TV. (do not use the remote)
2. Using the other hand, press the Power button.
3. A small screen should appear in the top left part of the screen.
4. Using the remote, select "Memory Recall" and Enter.
5. Power off and reboot the TV and Computer.
6. Run channel auto-scan to regain the picture.

We have a DVR hooked up to our 1989-99 Mitsubishi TV (floor model) still in amazing working condition. The remote control for that TV never allowed us to put the TV on mute. If the mute botton was...

Well, without knowing the exact model of tv and remote, I can just give my best guess.
Try using the volume up/down on the TV and / or the remote.
On the TV, try pressing both the volume up and down at the same time.
Stick the remote right in the face of the TV (direct in front of the remote sensor) and hit the mute button.
Try tapping the mute button in very short single bursts rather than pressing it for a half second like you would any other button.
If any of those work, please come back and reply with the model of the TV and remote, because someone somewhere probably has the same issue and would love to have it solved!

My television screen went black, but there is has sound

Make sure your tv is on the right input first of all. The newer flat panel lcds combine the componenent video (red , blue, green) with the composite video and audio (yellow, red, white). If your tv is on the component input then you hear audio from the composite input since the audio inputs (red, white) are shared. Look for a source or tv input button on your remote or the tv itself and try pressing this button unti you see a picture with sound.

No video/audio when pressing remote control or on the TV set

Moved my TV to another satellite receiver.
I received picture & audio.
Then I moved the TV back to its original position.

Now it works OK.

I probably hit a button that shut off my picture & sound.

I am mystified.

Thanks anyway.
