The blue screen appears when you lose the video input to the video processing circuits.

you have either lost input from the source or the tuner has failed.

Try giving input from a dvd player into the video input and see if you get a picture. If you do, the video processors are working ok and you have lost the signal upstream somewhere.

You must first determine if the trouble is external to the tv or internal to it. Check your cabling and connections carefully, go into the osd and make sure you have all the settings proper (see if it has been put on parental lockout or such thing).

Hi,

Often, a blue screen is an indication of "video mute" indicating that there is no usable video signal coming into the unit. Initially, pls check:

  • are the other controls (volume, channel, mute and others) still function;
  • any other issues other than just the blue screen;
  • does it power on/off normally (remote/front paneL0;
  • are all the cables and connectors plug where they should be?
  • have you likewise check the cable box, DVD or any of the sources including the cable itself?
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back on the make and model, as requested, how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

    Hi again,

    Appreciate the postback.

    This then would require that the video sources to be checked. You could of course try another video source such as an old VCR or another DVD.

    If problem persists with alternative video source, then it would be the TV unit itself. Further diagnosis then would require familiarity with electronic components and circuitry, use of a DVM and perhaps even a soldering iron. Access to a service manual or at the very least a schematic diagram with voltage readings would be of great help. Should you be uncomfortable performing a DIY (do-it-yourself) then perhaps your best bet would be to seek the services of a qualified professional.

    The screen goes blue when you lose the video input to the video
    processing circuits. So, you have either lost input from the source or
    the tuner has failed.



    Try feeding a signal from a dvd player into the video input and see if
    you get a picture. If you do, the video processors are working ok
    and you have lost the signal upstream somewhere.



    You must first determine if the trouble is external to the tv or
    internal to it. Check your cabling and connections carefully, go into
    the osd and make sure you have all the settings proper (see if it has
    been put on parental lockout or such thing).



    Let me know if you need more help.
