Question about Astar LTV-3001 TV
It is possible that there is video/picture, only that you can't see them because it is dark.
Your Astar LTV-3001 is an LCD TV and makes use of backlights. They are CCF Lamps powered by an inverter. Normally there would be several CCF Lamps and very rarely do all go out at the same time. What then could possibly have happened is that the inverter powering these lamps is defective since it is common to all.
A way to check is to run the TV AS IF everything is alright (albeit nothing you can see). With the use of a flashlight, shine the light obliquely to the screen. Press your remote's volume control up or down and try to see if there would be a semblance of the sound level indicator. If you can see something no matter how dim or dark, then you have just confirmed that it is the CCF Lamp inverter that is at fault.
If you have confirmed that there is really nothing even with the use of the flashlight, then it has something to do with the LCD panel or the video interface internal to the TV.
Unfortunately, either fault would require that you be familiar with electronic components and circuitry, the use of a DVM and a soldering iron. Should you not be comfortable going this route, you may need to seek the services of a qualified professional or an authorized service center.
Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
