Re: Have sound but no picture

I would check the output of whatever component is feeding the TV with video to make sure it is not that component. If it is still happening then make sure it is properly cooled. If it is still occurring, then I would say the TV is bad.

Plasma has no picture but sound works???

If the set was struck even a moderate blow anywhere near the screen you may have a bad plasma display panel---the diffused picture sounds like that.

Vizio has sound but no picture, 50 inch

I have the P50HDTV20A. When I turn mine on I get sound but no picture but if I leave it on for about 15-20 mins and then turn off then back on it will have picture and sound. It seems as though as something has to warm up so the picture will come on.

Sound no picture

Most likely the TV has a power supply related problem. The most common problem are the power supply for the screen itself. Most manufactures call it a Backlight Inverter Board. Something you may want to look at for your problem. But, I can't say it's 100% the problem because I can't actually look at the tv over the internet. I can only make guesses with the symptoms.

You have a few choices:

1. You can try leaving the TV unplugged for 30 - 45 minutes so the TV can discharge and reset itself.
2. If by chance the TV is still under warranty, go that route.

3. If you have some electronic experience, if you can find and purchase a Service Manual over the internet; It will help you diagnose the source of the problem and fix it by soldering in the new part. The Service Manual will give you circuit diagrams, test points, and part# lists.Usually, cost under $20. And most cases the new part cost less than $15.

4. Pay a TV shop to do the repairs. It maybe costly, but get an estimate of how much they will charge. That way you can decide if it worth repairing or replacing the whole TV.

It's the 26 inch version but have problem with picture

Hi Paul,
It looks like your TV might have a main board failure if the screen stays white without video. Since your TV is less then a year, I would suggest to contact the manufacturers to get fix under warranty. Most electronics devices carry one year warranty.
Good Luck.

Pink screen

When the "pink screen" happens on my Polaroid FLM-1911 TV, I unplug the power cord from the back of the unit, wait 30 seconds, and replug it. This fixes the problem.
