Re: black screen

How old is it?
Open it up and inspect the circuit board carefully for cracks.
TV makers use cheap, one sided circuit boards (meaning weak) that break easily. You are not supposed to drop them.
A cracked board can be repaired.
Of course it could be anything else.
My standard advice applies though:
My experiance is to not put money into a TV that is over ten years old. TVs stress out their electronic components worse than almost any other electronic product. After 10 years, there are so many parts that are ready to fail that your are probably wasting your money trying to get any more life out of it.

I accidentally hit a button on my remote - I'm not sure which one - and my tv screen went blank.

You hit the OFF button Lori? lol

No, you probably hit the Input or Source button. Press it again until the picture comes back.

Sony Blu Ray S350 plays well but have intermittent loss of video signal. Screen shows coloured background (yellow or white), audio continues to play then screen goes black then picture returns; this cycle...

It may be a problem in the digital section of the TV. If you find a part of the movie that blanks out, try rewinding back to it and see if it goes out again. It may also be the HDMI cable you are using. The blank out is often the result of the TV trying to adjust to the correct resolution for the program being played, and we need to diagnose why it is changing resolutions. Microwave interference and voltage fluctuations can also cause these issues.

Picture is not on the screen. I cannot seem to

Alot of times you have to back up the TV to something like LINE 1 or LINE 2. It will not show up with the TV on channel 3. When I attached my VCR, I hit input and line 1 and 2 came up and then the DVD player would play just fine. Try that.

Side BY Side Picture On TV Black And White

Try holding the stop button and the DVD dubbing button at the same time and waiting about 3 seconds. I had to do this twice, but it solved my problem.

My portable COby DVD player stopped working. DVD rotates when I put it in by screen remains black... With TV out option sound comes out and picture/sound shows on TV once I connect it to DVD

I have had some very bad luck with Coby products and am sorry to hear that you have too but please make sure that the connector jack is clean and functioning properly. The connection jack has a device inside it that knows when the plug is inserted and then sends the audio and video out to the TV. If the connector is really dirty it could be that the connector is not working properly.

There isn't a lot more to look at unless there is some obvious problem with the screen such as a loose wire or a broken hinge.

Black Bars on all blu ray movies

Hi icmjrtdr,

Having black bars displayed when watching a Blu-Ray disc is a common occurrence, even with a widescreen television.

You may have heard or seen aspect ratios of 4:3 or 16:9. 4:3 is the ratio of a traditional television that is nearly square. 16:9 is the ratio of most widescreen televisions currently marketed. The reason that even with a 16:9 television Blu-Ray discs are displaying black bars is that many of these discs contain footage that has not been reformatted for television. The screen in a movie theater is even wider than 16:9, and rather than trim the ends, most Blu-Ray discs maintain the entire picture.

Depending on the options available in your particular television, you may be able to find a zoom setting that trims the ends and removes the black bars. It is up to you if you would rather see black bars with the entire picture or lose a small amount of the picture on each side for a full-screen experience.

Hope this helps,
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Tv has sound but no image

When you say no image this could mean anything from, snow picture, blank screen, blue screen. Also, dry joints on the PCB can cause such a problem. More especially on the picture tube board.
