Problem: When the TV is turned on a picture appears for a few seconds and then the picture turns off. Audio is still heard.
Solution: Not a simple fix! This TV has 4 small florescent looking bulbs that act like a back light to light the image on the liquid crystal display (LCD). At least one of these bulbs is burned out or broken. The wires powering the broken bulb need to be cut and spiced together. Basically you’re bypassing the bulb and completing the circuit when cutting the wires going to the bulb on each end and splicing them together.
WARNING: This worked for me but no guarantee for anyone who tries it. This is a very involved procedure and involves completely dismantling your television. To be honest I don’t recommend anyone trying to fix it unless you are very technically minded and have a couple of hours to waste carefully tearing apart your TV. If anyone is willing to attempt this repair I am willing answer questions.
Cause of problem: It is my guess that this problem occurs when the TV is left on for extended periods of time. Like leaving the TV on when you fall asleep at night. My TV was left on a lot. I noticed that the plastic was melted and discolored where the bulb had burned out. (This can only be seen internally and is no way visible from the exterior)

You probably need a new power source. Take it to you repair shop. That's what I had to do and it was relatively inexpensive.

It is the capacitors on the power supply...They blew on ours...took it in a they replaced 7 for less than 100.00. Common problem with this tv because it gets hot. Hope that helps.
