No video just sound

The screen on the unit I have kept dimming down till it is all black. I have full sound, just no picture. One shop said it should be the x-main board. does this sound right?

Re: no video just sound

We were watching the TV and it just went blank the service man told me that the parts are almost all back ordered two to four months. Samsung customer service department said if I fax them the diagnosis they would send me a new TV to replace mine if the parts were un-available. My warranty expired a year ago. the service guy is coming tomorrow 2-27-08 I"ll see what happens and let all of you know. maybe a new TV for the lemon I bought. This could solve everyones problem with Samsung.

Re: no video just sound

That sounds like it is the broadcasting station, not the tv

Re: no video just sound

This should read"The sound comes in perfectly clear, just NO video."

Turned the TV on and saw the indicator light showing that the power was switched on. The tv had sound but the picture was completely black.

You have the typical backlight failure that LCD tv's tend to get. Take it to a repair shop for an estimate, but depending on the size of your tv, it will probably be better to just buy a new one. Sell this one on Craigslist for a few bucks to offset the purchase of a new one.

Viewsonic 5230p video black banding with blue and then will clear up

If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life of your monitor or TV by several years.
Check the cables, connectors and connections.
Take it to a repair shop.

Screen is black but i have sound

Sounds like you have a back light fault. Dim the lights in the room, turn the set on and shine a bright flashlight on the screen. If you see a faint picture, you have a back light fault. If you do not see anything, you have a video feed problem. Either way, I would suggest getting the set diagnosed to pinpoint the problem

No picture

A very dim picture in this case may be damage to the power supply of the set---If a LCD set it may use back lights of some type--if not on or at full brightness the picture will be very dark.

If I was looking at this set I would open and check to see if voltage for the back lights is correct first.

Toshiba 22LV505 TV-DVD:

Check the DC filter caps in the power supply first. Check the 24vdc (or 18vdc for this 22" model) to see if it goes away when the screen goes black.
There are main AC fuse, backlight inverter fuses, T-CON fuses.

Sony FWD50PX2/S 50 in. Plasma Television power problem

It does sound like a power supply problem but that can be misleading because a problem somewhere else in the TV can be "holding down" the power supply. This can usually be determined by using some isolation techniques.
