One simple solution could simply be that you don't have your playback device selected on the TV. Meaning that most TVs or old VCRs default to a 'blue' screen. The only way that this would change is if you physically went into the tv (or other device) and changed the settings yourself (telling the device to default to a black screen Its the only 2 options).

Hopefully your TV is new and you have your remote control handy; just find the button that says "Source" on it. Have a DVD player (or like device) playing/on so that when you start hitting the "Source" button (press then wait about 10 seconds) and hopefully you'll settle on the playback device of your choosing.

If after this procedure nothing happens I can only assume that there is actually something wrong with your 'tuner', so no amount of button mashing will bring your TV back.

Sadly, replacement parts are very hard to come about (if your TV is an older 'tube' style) and are usually costly as all hell. Not to mention a hassle for the weekend mechanic to slog through.

If your TV is an LCD a similar tuner situation may be at hand, but the only way to know this for sure is to have a replacement component and those are REALLY expensive. Seeing as those parts are 'all-inclusive' and actually replace several functions in your LCD. Given a $1000+ TV would merit a $100 part, things remain cost effective; until you find yourself replacing 2 or 3 of these components.

I'm not necessarily saying you need to take your baby to the repair shop, but they do have equipment to more quickly remedy the situation than the regular guy.

At least you have 'some' information with which to ponder.

Hope this helped...

Have a RCA flatscreen model # L40FHD41, blue power light comes on and stays solid but I don't get any picture or sound. Screen stays completely black as if it doesn't have any power at all.

Other than checking all the connections going to it for signal it is likely a shop repair.

The nature of these sets is someone must open and inspect them and check for voltages missing.

At that point it becomes a guessing game---try the boards (purchase them) and see if a bad board.

It is always possible the front screen unit or display has failed which is fatal cost wise.

You have to weigh the cost of repair, age of set and cost of replacement in this.

The only way anyone can KNOW which board is bad is to actually remove and replace it----most shops look at it and shoot you a high estimate.

let me know if you have questions.

The on off button on front doesn?t turn the unit off and on

Same here, your light went out if you put a VERY bright light on you'll be able to see something on the screen if you plug it up to your computer, if you are getting a new one go dell its worth it becase they last and are durable.
