Question about Televison & Video

Picture died, no display only sound

The TV died 18 months after purchase. I did not buy extended warranty. The technician tried swapping the motherboard but that did not fix the problem. Now the tech believes the LCD itself could be the issue. Does anyone have any advice here I heard a pop and immediately the picture died, I still get sound. I have not tried any fix I am trying to figure out what went wrong.

Commonly when you have sound but no imagen is caused by bad connected input cable(s) or damaged cables,check your cables(component,hdmi,or avi) and/or buy a new one,the cheaper, and check again

HI there, If the screen is blank but you have sound it is not really likely to be the motherboard. Q1 is the lamp on? Look into the air vents around the top of the panel, look for any light and heat. If there is no light but some heat, point a torch at the front of the panel, in the light can you see any movement with the TV ON!!

Could you tell me why the picture keeps going off but the sound stays on but when i switch the tv off then back on via the mains or the remote, the picture comes back on for a few minutes before going off...


FIRST question to be asked is where did you purchase your set? If it was Sams or Cosco. You might be able to take it back under warranty!! And get another tv. Also, did you purchase an extended warranty? Maybe check into that second. If neither of those avenues work, the most likely suspected problem area is the power supply. I hope that helps you narrow it down some or fix your problem.. Good luck. HDTV GURU JAY

It sounds like you might have a defective LCD panel. Your warranty for your TV is 18 months. Some of these models the warranty was mis-printed and said only 12 months.

I heard a pop sound from the back of the tv and then no picture but still had sound


You know this is pretty damn strange everyone is having this problem with this Plasma TV right around the same time... When I purchased mine it stated that it had 20,000 hours of life to it... Also, I purchased the extended warranty plan for and the company that supplied the warranty went out of business so now, I have a bad TV and was screwed out of more money buying the extended warranty

Sony has extended the warranty on the optical block regardless of purchase date until 6/30/10. I just had them cover the repair for me. They were very good about it. Call 1-239-768-7547 in US.

TV WILL NOT TURN ON BUT VIZIO LIGHT IS ON


The Service Plan from Walmart is an "extended plan" on top of the manufacture warranty. Your Tv is still under warranty from the manufacture.
Here's a link to get the info you need to get started on a warranty claim:

Picture died, no display only sound


Do this test and it should tell if the lcd panel is bad or not, turn the tv on and touch the screen in the center, push with your finger firmly but not to hard, if you have a backlight or light shows up around your finger then it is probably the T-con board/panel, the T-con board is attached to the lcd panel and is less expensive to replace, if you do not have any light then it's probaly the power supply

Samsung le32n had it for 16 months came down this morning blue light flashing on bottom of tv but no picture or sound. Tried swapping cables, sockets, leaving it off for a while nothing helps


Those Samsungs and most other HD units can fail within 6-18 months of purchase.. I would contact Samsung and go up the corporate ladder for help. Otherwise you may be looking at a repair bill that is as high as the cost of new unit.

No display


Under menu, option make sure that you haven't selected audion only and that input select is on the first or second options,(not the third one). If you can't even see the menu, then your connections are probably bad. Hope this helps, Mark
