Black screen on tv when turned on

The Tv turns on but nothing is on the screen. Not sure if the audio works because it is set to the digital in setting right now. Power indicator is on but there is a slow flashing light just above that isn't normally there.

Can not get sound on the tv screen when I turn it up on to channels no sound at all Mrs s hardy

When you say you turn it up, I assume you see a volume bar appear on screen which changes as you change the volume. Try going into the TV menu with the remote and navigate until you find settings for the audio/sound making sure the speakers are set to "On". If they are you are more likely to have a problem internally requiring service.

You can, as an alternative, connect audio cables from the output of the TV to a stereo receiver/amplifier and see if you get sound that way, although that is only a work-around for your real issue.

You could also feed the TV digital audio output to the stereo amp via HDMI, digital coax, or fiber optic, if the stereo has those inputs.

Samsung TV LN40B500P3f - No Picture ; just audio Hello, Our Samsung LN40B500P3f TV audio display is black; audio works fine. If I turn TV off and then back on the picture does display for a few secon

The set will need to be properly diagnosed to narrow down the problem. You could be looking at a bad inverter, bad CCFL lamp, fault in power supply or main board.

Nothing happens when i connect my RGB to my TV i have pressed the button on my laptop which enables the external monitor connect but that still dosnt work.......... Also my laptop screen also turns black

The laptop screen turning black is what it's supposed to do.
Make sure your computer has the correct output, and the TV has the correct inputs. Very few laptops have analog video out (like the 3 RCA jacks, or the round S-Video jack), but some newer TVs have VGA inputs (Often blue, trapezoidal shaped plug with lots of pins).
If your TV and Laptop are compatible, make sure you've set the Input on the TV to the correct source. You will need to consult your TV manual for this.

How do I get my Samsung TV audio to output though my onkyo tx-sr608?

If it is a relatively new TV you should use an optical digital audio cable. These are often called "toslink" cables. Plug one end into the "digital audio out" port of your TV, and the other into a free toslink port on the receiver (there are two on the back and a third on the front of the 608).
You should then change the settings on your samsung tv to: - turn the digital audio (s/pdif) output on - allow bitstream output over s/pdif - turn the tv speaker off I am not sure which model Samsung you have, so I can't go into great detail, but I'm sure you will be able to find the relevant settings, most likely under "sound" in your system menu.

lastly, you will probably want to use the input assign page of the onkyo on-screen menu to assign whichever input you use to your TV, and change its name accordingly.

Tv is black but i can still hear?

Check your wire connections on the back of the tv to make sure nothing had caused them to get unplugged OR been chewed through. If it doesn't fix the problem then try replacing your connections.

My wii has nothing but a black screen when i turn it on

verify that the a/v cables are hooked up properly to your tv and that your tv is set to the correct input so you can see the video and hear the audio.

If you have already done this then go ahead and use a different set of A/V cables to make sure your using a good set.

If after this you still get a black screen then your mainboard inside of your Wii is bad and would need to be replaced.
