Sounds cracked.. its worthless.

I had one broken a few months ago. I got a couple quotes to fix it.. it was about $200 less then a brand new one. I'd just buy a new one.

For the new TV I'd pickup a screen protector for it. My son threw a toy at my TV the other day and I nearly had a heart attack from the flashbacks. Thank God I picked up one of these a few weeks earlier. It stopped it. http://www.tv-armor.com

I had this problem on my 42" Philips. Just got it yesterday and worked fine on the tv stand. As soon as I mounted the TV to the wall via wall mount system, I had the exact same issue you did. Figured it out today.

The wall mount was putting pressure against the center of the back of the tv (tv set had a slightly rounded back plate, and the mount was a flat plate). As soon as I put spacers (part of the wall mount hardware set) between the wall mount braket and the tv so there was no contact except at the mounting holes, the tv worked fine.

My theory is the pressure pushed the tv back plate against some board components which caused them to overheat (no air flow); or put pressure on internal connectors. I dont know.

Hope this helps, may not apply to your situation.

SOUND BUT NO PICTURE


I had the same problem today with the same symptoms. I tried a power reset, removing the cables, checked all inputs and got the same symptoms.

I found a temporary fix. When I turned the TV on, I immediately press the backlight but on the remote until the bar appears then lower the setting down to 10. This may take a couple of tries of powering the TV off/on. Once I got the setting lowered to 10, the picture stayed on. If you invoke any of the presets it will change this setting. I'm going to call someone and try to get more information on a permanent fix.

I hope this helps, at least I got the picture back.

Lg lcd tv screen goes black but the sound still works 52lg70 screen goes blank, sound still works. i can change settings but cannot see the menu so the tv is still working there is just no picture.


This sounds like a mainboard problem. Unless you do not see a back light flash when you turn on the TV, which may mean it is an inverter board problem, this is most likely fixable by replacing the mainboard.

Have the inverter board checked for cold solder joints, this television is notorious for bad connections on the small transformers on the inverter, buy the way the inverter is the board that lights the lamps.

We just set up our 37 in sharp and get no picture


If this is a new set, return it for an exchange. This one sounds like an LCD set which uses a "back light". This back light is not working. This is a warranty repair or exchange.
