Our screen went black no picture only sound

The tv went black we can hear what is on the tv we just can not see it, we have repaired it several years ago and it was the transistors. the color was either all green or bubbly in places. could i possibly need a new picture tube or should i trash this one since it is over 10 yrs old and get a new one?

Try a hard restart, which simply means unplugging the power cord of the TV, and replugging it after 4 hours have passed. If this does not bring the picture back, then you should consider buying a new TV. The costs of a repair ( labor and parts) might exceed the cost of a new TV. Your 10 year old TV has served you well, and has exceeded the average life expectancy of 5 years. May it rest in peace in TV heaven.

"32" rca tv about 3 years old was on & it went black- power light is on"


sounds like the sceen is dead, if you are receiving nothing on screen, then it sounds like either a component and/or screen is gone... however, check the tv input to make sure it wasnt acidentally switched to an input channel with nothing selected... if that does not work, call local tv repair or mfg customer service tech. if under warranty, have repaired or replaced. without physically seeing tv, it is hard to diagnose issue outside of information given. could be simple board replacement or could be screen.. but check input first, if a dvd player plays, then it could be just component or input on wrong selection

A short has developed inside the set. What you hear is the power supply being overloaded due to the short. Have a repair shop check it out. Thanks

RCA 32 in TV no picture no sound just a beeping noise TV power is on


Hello cote,

This indicates a problem in the power supply either the low voltage switching supply or the High voltage power supply. The sounds you hear is the shutdown circuit activating, I would not suggest that you try to repair this problem because of the dangers involved. I would suggest that you take it to a qualified TV repair shop. This problem should not cost you much, however it is the best choice for the problem you described.

I hope this helps,
Thank you,

Problem with tv


Could be a horizontal output fault, faulty power supply, a simple dry solder joint or HVT. If you can hear arcing or smell an ozone odour, it will be the HVT which may cost a bit.

Without knowing the actual cause, it's impossible to say how much it would cost to fix it.... could be anywhere from $50 to $250 etc

Best to have it checked by a technician and get a quote to repair... then decide if you think it's worth it.

Toshiba is generally a reliable brand, so if you were happy with the picture quality before the fault occurred, it's probably worth repairing.

Cheers

Sony KV-32FV15 TY


I have had my Sony KV-32FV15 for about 2 years now and nothing has ever gone wrong(even going through several moves.) I recently moved again and when I plugged in the TV, you can hear the sound perfectly but the screen just stays black. You can not even hear the squeal that the TV makes when comming on. Is there anything that I should initially look at to troubleshoot. I cannot afford at this time the $250 fee to repair my TV. I look forward to your input and hopefully I can get this TV working again.

Tv has sound but no picture


Sounds like you have lost video somewhere in the video circuits. Possibly the picture tube could have gone bad or lost filiament voltage. You can check to see if you have high voltage by holding your bare arm close to the screen. The hairs will stand up if you have high voltage. Absence of high voltage will also cause a black screen,but the sound might not work either since on some sets the power for the sound is supplied from the same circuit as the high voltage. Stargazer

The good thing is you see something in the screen,with age the set has developed loose conections in a few different places,my suggesion is to call professional for service now and the repair will not as expensive,if the picture quality is good is worth it.
