P61940 Sound but no picture

Menu displays but no picture. 3 guns are working. No smell of anything burning. Figure it might be rf converter. Is it possible to troubleshoot to component level? Can a module be found for the tv? thanks.

Has a good sound, a no picture symptom is definitely in the video amplifier circuits. First monitor the signal at the base and collector of video amplifier and at the cathode of the picture tube .This should be followed by measurement of the video amplifier transistor element voltages .As in the case of any amplifier, total failure of the circuit is usually easy to locate.Look for such defects as open coupling capacitor and coils, cold solder joints, open or worn ,breaks in printed circuit connection.Keep in mind that video output amplifier is a power transistor and is therefore subjects to being burned out if its heat sink is defective.Also try to set the brightness to minimum.When the vertical deflection is lost the beam current is concentrated in a single horizontal line across the screen .
Find a local technician there to do works for you , in order to avoid high voltage shock.....

    If you are using the RF input, I would suggest to use the audio/video inputs and see if that helps.

Turn tv on, sound comes on but no picture, power light blinks,


The clear bulb located back left side needed to be replaced. Too much heat causes the bulb to burn out. Simple fix. One screw to open door to bulb compartment. Two screws to remove bulb assembly. Thank goodness for extended service warranty which paid for it. This is the second one in three years. At the price of $200 for bulb and $100 for trip and labor, this is not an inexpensive fix. Anyone purchasing a projection tv should get an extended warranty.

After installing the DTV converter box, reception was dropped for most of the stations i received pre-box. now i have added a new antenna. and, i can't get anything through the converter box. connections...


If you have the box connected to the TV using an RF cable to the TV's antenna input, make sure the TV is on channel 3. You should at least see the boxes menu display when the power is on. Try channel 4 if you see nothing on 3. Every box I've hooked up has been on channel 3 by default, but who knows?

If you can, hook the box to the TV using direct video and audio connections, and make sure the TV is set to the correct input.

Unless the box you bought has "RF pass-through" (and if you got your box using a government coupon, it's a sure bet it doesn't) you will notice a marked drop in quality if you try to watch regular broadcasting with the box connected. I've been installing these with a bypass arrangement so people can still watch their analog broadcasts until they go off the air in February.

If the box does in fact have no display when you turn it on and your TV is on the correct channel, your box is defective and should be returned and replaced.

Sound but no picture.


Is this a 3-gun projector style or an LCD?
LCD has a lamp . If its a 3-gun system, then it's probably in the High Volt section on the unit.

Time to get a tech to troubleshoot it in person

Ther is a test you could do is you had the proper equipment, and that would be to inject a know good RF signal into the tunner F connector and chech tha point where the RF/IF is converted to audio and video, to determine if the proble is a bad tuner or not. The equipment is a VA62A Universal Video Analyzer. Its a great piece of equipment for this type of work. another thing you can do is get an RF Modulator from Radio shack and input a video and audio signal in to it and set it to channel 3 and connect the F connector to the TVs F connector. The set the TV to channel 3 you should see the picture and hear sound in channel 3. The VA62A is best because you can set it to emulate all of your channels from 1-87 standard TV and Cable TV. In any event a test needs to be run to see if the tunner is at fault.

Projection TV wil not cut on.


You should first replace the convergence IC's, both of them. Also make sure all the resistors on the convergence IC's are good and not burnt. That's probably what you smelled burning. Good Luck
