If it's just the illumination thats gone it's probably a surface mount fuse or the inverter circuit or the flexible pcb, I would advise you to bring it to a pioneer service centre and I would guess you should expect to pay about £75 + vat

LG LCD/LED turns black but sound is ok.

Shine a torch close to the screen to see if an image is visible. If so then the backlight is not working and needs to be repaired or replaced.

Screen goes black but sound is good.

This sounds like the inverter which powers the display fluorescent has or is failed/failing. If you take a torch to the blacked out display can you see the image faintly? If so the unit needs repairing.

No pictures showing anymore

sounds like the projection bulb went. behind computer monitors and lcd screens is a bulb that shines a light threw the screen to allow you to be able to see the image, try opening the unit to see if the bulb is on while unit is on, if not try shining a light threw the back of the screen to see if you can see the image. bulb may need to be replaced.

My sdm-hs73 moniter the power is on but screen is blank, what could be wrong

First check brightness and contrast settings.
If all good could either be your lcd back light has gone or the inverter. To check if its the black light shine a torch through the back of the screen to see if you can see a slight image on it, if you cant see anything the inverter board is faulty and to repair needs to be changed.

My TV image went blank, but the TV stayed on. What could it be.

The exact model number is necessary to determine the exact parts your TV has. Some models has suffixes in their numbers to indicate they have some differences in their parts. For example, the 42LG30 is different from 42LG30DC, 42LG30-UD and so on. But generally, there are three parts that has a direct connection with the dimming and illumination of the screen. These are the T-CON board or LCD driver, backlight and inverter or ballast. The T-CON board is responsible in driving the LCD panel to produce the appropriate video or image. The inverter or ballast provides power to the backlights to illuminate the screen. If one of these fails, you will not be able to see any image or video on your screen.
The T-CON board is bad when there's a glow on your screen indicating that the backlight is on but there's no video or image. In short, the screen is blank.
If the screen is black, no glow, grab a torch and shine it on your screen. You will be able to see a faint image if the T-CON board is good. This indicates that the backlight is off. Either the inverter/ballast is dead or the backlight itself is busted. But usually it's the inverter/ballast that has failed. You can tell that the backlight is busted if the TV is old enough that the mercury vapor inside the tubes has depleted.
The T-CON board and the inverter or ballast are not serviceable and must be replaced completely if faulty. Replacing these boards can easily be done. Feel free to inform me if you find which of the above is the root of the problem to guide you in the fix.

Hello, LCD Problem. I have sound but no image. Black screen. No access to the configuration menu. Someone can help me ??

I think your LCD TV lost back light that is why you have sound but no picture to see it as LCD TV requires back light to present picture on its screen.
Please intimate model and brand of your LCD TV to provide you more info.

IR 5000 No Back illumination for touch panel

Most likely you will have to just replace the LCD display pannel or Touch Screen PCB. It does have a lamp, but I did not see a part number for it. You may be able to find a used or rebiult one on line and have a tech install it for you, to save your self some money..
