Are you using component cables (red/green/blue)? Check your connections to see that they are all seated properly. When using component cables, if only the green is plugged in, it will give you a black and white picture. You will get color once you plug in the red and blue.

What kind of sources are you using? what kind of cables are you using? Need these kinds of specifics to ehlp you out.

Picture goes black with gray fuzzy lines ~ 1/2" apart horizontal.


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.
Take it to a repair shop.

I have a sony KDL 46xBR2 when I turn on powers up green light stays on but a dark gray screen no picture or sound


The green light merely indicates that power is getting to your TV. The symptoms you describe point to internal power supply failure

Lg 32lc2r, only showing picture in black and white


Make sure that the color control level is set to the default or 50% to start with. This should be in the Video menu.

The colour for the tuner and for the encoded base-band video uses a circuit area called the colour demodulator. It is possible that this cirucuit area has failed and needs servicing.
