    I have a flat screen vizio. For awhile now the screen has been randomly going black while were watching tv. We would just turn it off and on again a few times and then it would be good to go. The other day it black and just stayed that way. The sound is still adjustable and if you get up really close to the Tv you can kind of see the picture back there.

    My flat screen tv was shot by an air soft gun. It did not puncture a hole in the screen , however when I turn on the tv there is a circle in the picture behind where it was shot. Can the picture be repaired?

If it is a LCD TV, and there is a faint picture, it is probably the backlight or inverter board (probably the latter). This is a common problem (especially with PC monitors).
Do an internet search for your model and inverter, you may be able to replace it.
Make SURE you REMOVE the power lead before opening the set !!!!

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.

First when tapping changes the picture you have somewhere a bad connection; in electrical board or wiring.
When the screen goes blank after a while means some capacitor is bad/old.

Flat screen tv power surged

Is it just the cable? Do you have a DVD player or game system connected? If so, how do they look? Ofter a momentary power loss can cause cableboxes to loss picture, loss sound, and even cause the picture to be distorted. Try unpluggind the AC power from the cablebox and TV. Wait about 5 minutes and reconnect both. Leave the cablebox alone for about another 5 minute after you reconnect it so that it can fully boot up. Then see if you still have the problem.
