It has no lamp, just the three picture tubes and they are not your problem.

I would suggest you do an inspection looking for any signs of Glycol leaks.

Each of the three tubes has a sealed area with this liquid in it, clear and very toxic.

Pull the front speaker grill off and remove the inspection plate behind it. There are three large circuit boards. Right to left as seen from the front---signal/control board green in color, Middle board tan colored----deflection/power and far left board main power and HV supply.

Leaks may be hard to see, it will not be a lot of liquid and or may appear as discoloration of parts. Leaks if there will be in first 3 inches or so of front of boards.

The green board is the most likely in your case---I will attach a photo of what it looks like and you will see the liquid on the square part on that board. The board has parts soldered to the TOP! and slight amounts may appear as discoloration of solder seen there.

As I said, you must look closely as even a tiny amount can cause real odd problems.

Let me know what you find and I will assist you.

    No I don't believe a fluid leak is the problem and I'm reluctant to believe it's the pico fuses and convergence ICs since i don't have the 2-2 trouble code

How do I get my t.v. fixed it has no picture

First thing to do is to grab your remote and look for the INPUT or the SOURCE button. While you can hear the program hit one of those two buttons and toggle through the inputs. I am betting that you will come across the video side of it.

I am currently house-sitting for a family friend. Watching TV last night, the family pet jumped on me, causing me to hit the knobby button between the menu and reset buttons on a sony universal remote,...

This universal remote (or the TV's original remote) should have an Input button, which allows you to switch the various inputs available on the TV (such as HDMI, composite, over-the-air, cable, etc). You can try hitting Input until you see a picture, but be sure to turn on any devices connected such as set top boxes, DVD players, etc.

My television screen went black, but there is has sound

Make sure your tv is on the right input first of all. The newer flat panel lcds combine the componenent video (red , blue, green) with the composite video and audio (yellow, red, white). If your tv is on the component input then you hear audio from the composite input since the audio inputs (red, white) are shared. Look for a source or tv input button on your remote or the tv itself and try pressing this button unti you see a picture with sound.

Toshiba Regza sound but no picture

I had the same problem last night - sound but no picture form any of the inputs - DVD, VCR, FIOS or antenna. I could still see the TV menu. If you go to the TV menu - you can go to the settings (far right top), from there you can choose to restore factory settings, usually needs a code - 0000 (if you did not choose a different one), select yes when prompted if you want to restore factory defaults. This brought my picture back. I lost all of my picture preferences i had set - but at least I got a picture! I hope this helps!!

No sound or picture

Try 2 things:
1. If you have a cable box with the yellow/white/red outputs, use a compatible cord to run the 3 to another input on your TV (ie input 1 vs cable). and/or
2. Do a Factory reset. Hold the "menu" button on your TV then on your remote hit "menu" then "8" then "select" and go to "factory reset". You may have to unplug the TV as it may freeze on "factory reset". Replug it then try it out.

Hope it works.

Tv picture is black, sound is fine

Sorry, no easy answer here. On an older set this would be espected and not worth repairing, but you should take this to a TV shop for troubleshooting. Most likely culprit is the flyback transformer and/or the horizontal deflection.
Hope Ya Fix It.
