Over the weekend the TV decided to stop showing the picture - we have sound for all the channels but no picture. Have swapped round scart cables and checked for any loose connections but cant think of anything else to do. Any ideas? thanks Katie

If the picture is OK then check your sound cables, red and white if analog, or swap out the HDMI cable with one that you know works.
Also, on the SETTINGS screen make sure your audio is set to stereo not surround sound.
You have a CRT projection TV. There's no lamps in this that can be swapped out. The technology is very similar to a glass tube CRT TV.
If the picture disappeared but you still have sound then you haven't pressed the wrong input or pressed the picture mute because sound would go too. As a quick check, try any function (vol, contr, bri etc) that normally brings up an onscreen display. If that has gone too then it's a TV issue with the drives to the three tubes. If the OSD is still visible, then the problem is either a source signal issue (broken or disconnected cable; menu changed to affect the signal output of an external source) or the TV isn't processing the signal correctly.
For TV problems where something has broke, the answer is getting the TV repaired or replaced.
The TV channel should be set on Chanel 3 or Chanel 4.
Use the remote control of the TV to set it.
You can also use the AUX ports (to TV) on the VCR and connect the three wires to the AUX ports on the TV (TV input). The two audio wires are to be connected to Audio in and the Video signal to the Video input.
If you get a garbled picture you can use press the tracking button on the VCR. Usually you press the Channel Up arrow, or Channel Down arrow to adjust the picture.
I had the same problem. all the service reset would only make the display come on for a few second with no "k" on the screen - only the channel would show up. I purchased a complete set of board for the lcd on ebay, and started swapping them one by one. The inverter boards were the culpret. Tele working 100% since that board swap.
Well after playing around with the tv some more, I decided the problem was probably the cable jack, and tried running the video in/out cables thru the VCR to get around this, which I read generally works but in this case nothing. I had tried the tv on various settings, anytime I put the tv in "video" mode I'd get a blue screen and nothing else. Anyway I found a switch in the back of the Direct Tv box for ch. 3 & 4 settings. So I flipped it but still got a snowy picture, only this time it was on ch 4 instead of ch 3. By sheer accident I put the tv back in video mode while I had the satilites setting to ch 4, and the picture came up crystal clear. Since I didn't mess with it further, I'm not sure if it was the channel selector or the fact that hooked the tv up via the video cables, but whatever it was it did the trick.
I just KNEW this could not be a broken tv despite the fact that everhwere I read online suggested it was. I knew pictures can go out, or sound can go out....but to have BOTH go out didn't make sense to me. Anyway, glad its working! :)
sounds actually like it has had weather damage, sometimes water can get into a place it shouldnt on a tv, not shorting it out, but instead messing up in your case the numbers or menu screen, so i'd say it is best to take it to tyour nearest recycler, hope this helps.......jason
