TV has power, but picture or sound will not come on.

My F36650 model has power, but no picture or sound. Fine in a.m., turned off, left for a couple hours, came back and it was dead.

    I have the same issue. Found on a site that the transistor is a common problem for these sets. I even ordered one on-line..but took the back off the the TV and can't find where it goes. Anyone know anything about TV wiring or where I can buy repair manuals?

It sounds like something in the set has failed. These newer TV's have shut down circuits that won't let the set come on if there is a short or excessive voltage somewhere in the set. Most failures in TV's occur at the moment the set is turned on.

My sd-582hd5 picture goes black

Like most problems with this model, check and re-solder the connections on the power supply board on the right rear of the tv, just behind where the main power cord goes in. Most problems are around the upper left corner where the white connectors E-12 and others. Check all of them from loose and cold solder solder connections on the board. Hope this helps.

Sound is fine, but no picture

could be a bad solder connection or maybe the CRT socket has come off slightly. I lean more to a bad solder connection at the flyback area screen G2
