Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. You’ll need to check the X and Y sustain buffer boards. When either of these boards goes bad then the common problems include negative image, no image, vertical or horizontal stripes on picture, turns on and than turns off, and many more. You’ll need to open the back off the TV and check for any swollen/bulged capacitors on these boards and replace whichever has gone bad. If still the issue is not resolved, then please check the power supply board. All this is only recommended if you have electrical expertise & know how to solder/re-solder components as these units contain high voltages even when in off position. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

Top left and right corners are dark on my 55 inch seiki tv


The picture tube could be getting old.

Normally this effect can also be due to alignment with the magnetic meridian.
You can try to de-gaussing with a high voltage gun.

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

My Vizio LCD TV screen fades to dark. Sound stays on.


I w having this same issue when watching a Blu-Ray disc. I found it to be dependent upon what picture mode the TV was set to. By this I mean certain picture modes would cause the TV to dim during dark scenes of a movie. Changing the picture mode helped a lot.

Dark Screen and red and blue lines


Those lines tell me that you may have a leaky electrolytic capacitor in your vertical circuit.

Dark screen/picture.


This 30" flat screen TV set may have a problem in the high voltage circuit of the TV set. You may be able to adjust this by taking off the back of the TV set. Look for the block where the large red wire runs up to the top of the picture tube. On this block will be two controls. one will say screen and one will say focus. Try and slowly turn the control that says screen or S on it clockwise and see if you can make the picture brighter. Turn up the control till you just start to see faint lines in the picture, then back the control down till the lines go away. If the picture does not come up when you turn this up, and all you get is a blank screen, you will need to have this set repaired by a qualified repair person. Good Luck
