    We have the same problem. Four days after the 90 day warranty expired, the picture starting freezing on some channels. We called the cable company and they resent the signal to our DVR box. Once they did that, we lost all pictures. We have sound now, but no picture. Now Memorex tells us to send the TV back to them and they will repair it. We are wonder if the DVR cable box is causing these problems and we the customer are having the pay the expense to have the TV's repaired.

    No picture when turned on, only a blank screen and a tweet tweet sound that sounds like a bird.

Does the lcd screen have a glow to it ? Or is it really dim if u get real close to screen u can see images moving ?
it it has a glow to it you panel lighting is fine but you control board is bad. If you have a dark screen and see faint images you panel back lighting is out u can check the power with a meter at the connection to inverter board on panel.

Sound but no vision, black screen


It's either the backlight lamp or backlight inverter is busted due to a power failure or fluctuation. Here's how to determine which is which:
  1. Grab a flashlight.
  2. Turn on the TV.
  3. Shine the flashlight onto the screen.
  4. If you cannot see any display even a faint one, the backlight inverter is dead, else the backlight lamps are busted.
  5. Replace which ever is the culprit.
