First, look at the screen in darkened room to see if you can see any slight glow from the screen, if it does, then the problem can be the T-CON (not getting the 12vdc) or the main logic board not feeding the signals to the T-CON board.
if not, next place to check will be the power supply module, make sure it has 24vdc which is required by the backlight inverter to work, the reason for not having 24vdc can be from bad DC filter caps (leaking/bulging top, high ESR) or short circuits in the inverter board which will cause the 24vdc supply to go into shutdown mode, so you may have to disconnect the power cable that feed the inverter board to see if the 24vdc will work without the inverter board hookup, you will need to apply about 3~4 amp of load to the 24vdc to make sure it can handle that. There are fuses on the backlight inverter boards also. So there are some troubleshoot you will have to do to find out the causes of the problem you are having.

If you are going to DIY and have proper tools, electronics knowledge, and know safety precaution then please read on:

I have a sharp tv with the volume at its highest but i can't hear anything


Hello
Check its speaker first. If voice coil of the speaker or tis cone paper has damaged, speaker will produce a dull low sound output. If the speaker is found OK, check the audio output section of the unit. This section circuits can be located inside the TV circuit board. look for any loose or bad soldering terminals at the audio output IC. It is best to resolder all the suspected solder points by applying a little more solder, withut making any solder bridge short in between adjecent solder terminals. If this also does not help you, replace the audio output IC. It is damaged. OK.

I just bought the Sony MHC-EC99i and I don't know how to connect it to the tv so I can hear the audio from the tv to my speakers


Not knowing anything about your TV...

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/model-documents.pl?mdl=MHCEC99I click on "Operating Instructions"

Look at the section: Using Optional Audio Components.

Assuming your TV has an RCA audio output or headphone output, connect to the PC In. You might have to get an adapter. Select PC In to hear it. make sure the TV's internal volume controls are sending a "Fixed" audio output or its volume control will affect the output. Mute the TV or turn its speakers down.

How can I hook up my Bose cinemate on my Philips HD tv when no there is no Audio out and I want to use it for my dvd player, cable box, and video systems?


You don't need to send audio TO a TV. I's a TV, not a source of anything. Many of us use monitors (no TV speakers). The Bose speakers are presumably superior to the TV speakers so whatever the TV is watching (cable/sat/dvd) shuld have its own audio.


Page 11.

If your TV does not have any audio output jacks, you can connect the CineMate™ speaker

system to the audio output jacks of another source, such as a DVD player or cable/satellite

box. However, you will hear sound only from the connected source through your CineMate
speakers.

Problem with tv and computer. No sound.


If you plug in headphones to the Laptop can you hear anything? If not check laptop settings
If you plug an ipod (or similar) into the TV using the same lead can you hear anything? What about with a different lead?

The method is to take "known good" parts and swap them into the system to find the failure point by replacing each part in turn until you confirm it is "known good" or faulty.

I suspect the lead but follow the procedure above.

I just bought a Dynex DX-LCD19-09 19 inch TV. I also have a Phillips home theater system. I have digital cable and I cant figure out how to hook it up to where i can watch regular tv but hear it through...


The only audio out jack on your TV is for the headphone on the left side of the TV. You need to purchase a 3.5 mm to RCA audio cable, connect the 3.5mm jack to the left side of your TV and the 2 RCA audio cable ends to the audio in of your Home Theater and then select AUX 1 or AUX 2 on the home theater depending on which jacks you plugged into.
