    I've lost the picture on my tv. I have sound, though. I smelled a burning smell from the back of the tv, also. I spoke on the phone with a repair place and the guy didn't think it was the picture tube. he wants me to bring it in to look at. Any ideas?

    sound but no picture, black screen ? set only 5 years old !!

  • schaeen Apr 23, 2008

    Same thing. Weird part is that it seems that some frequencies seem to trigger it. For example, I watched a movie that had a scene with lots of lightning. Every time the lightning struck, the tube went out (but sound kept going). I would play back the movie and the screen would go off at exactly the same place.

    WTF is going on??

  • cgoodwn64 Oct 05, 2008

    My problem is within the same problem, however, very random in times.

    Usually goes black after a couple hours watching tv, especially on Football days. After about 5 or 10 minutes the picture comes back on. Not sure if it is a sign of old age, or excessive use.

    Any solves please let me know:

  • Anonymous Nov 08, 2008

    I have the same problem. We had a TV repair person check it out. Initially he thought it was an easy fix with a small part then determined it was the main board that needed to be replaces. Contacted Samsung and apparently they do not make the main board any longer. Wahhhhhh!!!

I unplugged the power, and the cable line and then plugged the TV back in-same problem no picture. Is it the TV? I don't want to spend money on a new one, if it's something simple to fix

  • alienz999 Feb 21, 2009

    No picture or menus, I have sound. The T.V turns on since I can tell there is static charges on the screen. Did a bit of research on T.V troubleshooting and I'm fairly sure it has something to do with the flyback transformer (that part has a reputation of being the first part to break in a T.V). But other circuits like the horizontal circuitry, if faulty will cause the flyback to stop working to prevent damage to the screen. In those cases don t bother trying to fix it.

    I will do some tests on the transformer to see if that s the problem (plz don t attempt unless you know what you are doing, T.V's can be dangerous and have to be discharged before attempting ANYTHING inside it)
    If I can say for sure it s a faulty flyback, I ll change the part and hopefully the problem is fixed.
    I would recommend buying a new set though I fix things for a living and this is my idea of fun.

In regards to the Sony KV32XBR450 without picture but sound, mine just had this problem occur yesterday. After doing a quick troubleshooting check, I have found that the problem is most likely a bad tuner, as when I directly connected a video source to the RF (Cable Coax) connector, I wasn't able to get a picture, etc.

I was able to "by-pass" this issue for now, while I wait for the replacement part (special order via Sony Authorized Repair Service Ctr), by using the S-video output from my Dish Network and plugging that into the S-Vedio input on the back of the TV, (you might also have S-video output on your local cable box too). Now I've got a really nice picture, but without sound, so all you need to do is utilize either your Audio outputs from your Satelite Box or Cable Box and connect them to your Audio inputs under the S-Video cable and you'll have picture and sound. If you have a DVD/VCR, etc. with audio feed-thru connections, you can also accomplish this with your standard hook-ups to that device, just select it for the sound while you use video 3 (or 4) where you connected the S-Video cable.

This will let you contact your local repair/service center and see if they can get the parts needed to make the repair. I figure that the parts will run between $40-$120, plus a $50 diagnostic fee (usually applied towards your repair bill), plus the labor charge. If I was having the repair done by the shop, I'd expect to pay around $200-$250 +/-. Not bad for a HD Flat panel TV when you consider that a new Flat panel with 1/2 the resolution (720p) will cost you $450 +/-
and a 1080i is more than double that. Remember that the Sony KV32XBR450 is HD 1080i and 720p in one unit. Hope this helps.

No picture but has sound

The problem can be caused by a bad sustain board (Ysus Zsus) , the popping sound is often caused by a capacitor blowing up.
The TV must be taken apart and tested before eventually replacing sustain boards.
