Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. From what you have described it seems that you might have a backlight and/or an inverter board issue with this TV set. It could also be due to the inverter circuits for the backlights. The inverter is the power supply source for the backlights. There could also be a screen driver problem; if it is then you have to change the entire inverter board. All this is only recommended if you have some kind of expertise for checking the internal circuitry of the TV as these units have high voltages running even when the set is switched off. The cost to change the inverter board including labor would be around $250, if you get this done by a professional. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

42 inch philips lcd no picture no sound


Sometime a no picture, no sound still has the power light or some other led blinking. The blinks might be an error code that will isolate the problem.

In general on LCD TVs with no picture, no sound, no blink code, the main power supply has failed. The capacitors weaken and when bad enough, damage the power supply.

If there is a blink code, the most, if not all of the power supply is OK and the blink code could point to the problem.

SONY KV-35S26 Blinking picture


Guess I should have looked throught the next couple of posts... The problem you have there you will not be able to repair yourself but a good shop can fix it temporarily. The CRT (Cathode Ray Tube) or picture tube is shorted, that's what is causing your blinking. You can call around and ask a shop locally if they can rejuvenate it for you using a crt analyser. In the shop here we use a BK467 which would fix the problem for awhile. What they will do is take the back off and hook-up the analyser and remove the short temporarily. That fix could last weeks or even months, in most cases though never more than a year. Turn the RV1791 back down, it has nothing to do with the G2 voltage and you don't want to overdrive the crt anyway. Take it back down until the horz. lines disappear in dark scenes or background. Then take it in and have the picture tube rejuvenated. Then start shopping for a new Tv... You'll need one eventually but this will buy you a little more time.

Sony trinitron tv


If you have sound but no picture it means that your power supply and tuner are working correctly. The number of times the timer LED blinks is the code for the problem with the picture. The computer will stop the picture and blink the timer LED if the vertical circuit stops working, if the picture tube is too weak or if the horizontal sweep has stopped. The set should be serviced by a qualified tech familiar with Sony sets.
