Re: no or bad video
The picture is really dark but u can see movement on the screen, right ? Sounds like you might have a bad inverter on you LCD, a bulb burnt out or a faulty power supply. Problems to an lcd are not very many. More than likely bad lcd on each side of LCD panel there is a board that has a cable running from the power supply to it. Probably 8 to 14 pin connecter. If u have a meter check the DC voltage were the pin connector plugs in. 2 to 6 pins in a row should read 12 to 24 ( all should read the same) the other pins on the connecter will be a ground. Oh make sure the Inverter that u are checking is the Master and not the Slave.

You need a cable to go between the yellow (picture), red and white (sound) sockets on the strong to the VCR.
Those cables will connect to one of the VCRs AV inputs. You then need to use the VCR remote control to switch from the now defunct analogue tuner to the Line or AV input. Put your TV on the channel you use to watch video tapes. Switch on the Strong receiver. Do the switch to the Line or AV input on the VCR. When your VCR is on the correct input then you will see the picture from the Strong receiver on the TV. You can confirm it is the correct source by displaying the Strong's EPG.
When you come to make recordings, the Strong will need to be left on the channel that you want to tape. If your TV already has an aerial feed and isn't relying on the strong for its signal then you can watch another channel on TV.
You may have a bad cable fitting or a bad tuner--you have actually answered your own question:
Way around this issue is to connect a cable box that has the audio/video output jacks on the back to one of the rear AV inputs and BYPASS the tuner completely---watch cable from that input and change channels with the box.
I had the same problem. It appears to be due to a bad tv tuner. Turn on your computer and leave the coax unplugged. Leave it for a while (15-30 min). When you see "snow" on your screen, you will be able to use the source button to change to another input and see if you can get a signal. I am running my cable through a dvd recorder and using the AV input to watch tv. Also, my HDMI, component and RGB work fine. After thank don't try to access the TV source until you have had your tuner replaced.
WHEN IT BLACKS OUT, GENTLY PUSH OR TAP ON THE SCREEN. YOU SHOULD SEE A SLIGHT WHITE DISCOLORATION WHERE YOUR PUSHING. IF THIS HAPPENS YOU PROBABLY NEED A MAIN TOTAL ASSY. DO YOU STILL HAVE AUDIO WHEN IT BLACKS OUT?
I would start off by doing exactly that removing the black box tuner out of the equation. The next question is did you install the black box or did you have someone else install it for you. If the box is not installed propperly then the audio outs could not be wired up correctly. Double check all of your connections. It could be something as simple as bad or no power to the box.
