It sounds like a problem with the power supply. I had the same thing happen on a TV that was only a couple of years old. It did the same thing that you have mentioned. Once in a great while, it would turn on, and then we'd just leave it on because we didn't know when we would be able to get it to work again. The problem was, to buy a power supply for it we could get another TV. It just wasn't worth it.

Your flatscreen might be under warranty. I would look into that.

Sections of the power supply may have gone out, or it detects short circuits in the backlight inverter board or in the power supply itself.
Those are the two areas you need to check. Look fo bad caps with leaking/bulging top fist in the power supply.

How do I get picture back on TV which was working the night before, which is hooked up to HD cable box, thru HDMI?


OS info is always helpful, if say you are running some type of nix, it's likely not getting recognized by xserver or if your running some version of windows your display manager has shut it down because of a resolution mismatch.

No sound from hdmi cable


Go to the Sound settings in PS3 and be sure it's listed as HDMI and not Audio Video Cables.

Output on TV may be set to surround sound system? Powerd On?

If the set has contrast and brightness controls, try them but this problem is normally caused by a certain capacitor (I don't know the circuit reference number for this one) failing and it will continue to decay. Any competent TV tech (if you can still find one) will know where to look.

Find yourself a dark room or wait for the night to come. The darkest monitor adjustment could somehow reveal some light when there are no other light source available.

You may also hook a conventional CRT monitor and make your changes (such as bringing your computer back to its original settings). The darkest adjustment in CRT monitor could still render discernible displays.

No freaking signal


Double check ALL your ant wire connections. Then reprogram the converter to check for stations again. If that doesn't work then reposition your antenna and reprogram again.

DVD movies do not play


A blue screen means the TV is not receiving a video signal. Check all connections, then try another player, cable, etc. Also, check DVD and TV AV settings.
