The problem is not the lamp, if it is the lamp, then your television will not be having sound. It will not come on either, you will only be having the blinking led/power light.

The problem is the t-con board, it is located at the middle of the main board of the television, all you have to do is to unplug the television, then you leave it for about 6 hours so the high voltage will dissipate because televisions store currents in them. Then you unscrew the screws around the back of the television, then you assess the main board, the t-con board is in the middle of the main board. All you have to do is disconnect it, get a new one and fix it in, then reassemble the television back together and it will work perfectly fine.

It is an easy fix, you can ask a friend to assist you when doing this.

Take care and good luck.

Posting the make and model would be helpful.

If it's a DLP then there would be a bulb.

If it's LCD there there would be several bulbs, but most likely the inverter or power supply have gone bad.

If it's plasma It's most likely a power supply issue.

It can also be the YMain board or the back light inverter board or a capacitor or fuse has blown on the power supply board. Which you usually lose sound before you lose both sound and picture. Try to hard reset is for about 4-6 hours by completely unplugging it.

Picture is gone

the bulb has blown.... if you get the bulb out and replace it yourself, you would still be looking at the same price range, bulbsa are expensive... i suggest let the repairguy do it but if you do try it yourself, there should be a panel at the back of the tv that opens where you can then proceed to replace the bulb

TV Picture Goes Black

I had the same exact problem.
I removed the bulb and cleaned it. There is a small screen at the top of the bulb and it was covered with dust. Once it was cleaned I replaced the bulb and it solved the problem.
Thanks to those who posted the solutions
