Hi evansw591,
Power on the unit in the dark room then shine with the flashlight directly in the screen, you will barely see the images. This is because your backlight is not functioning. The following reason is the caused.
1. Power supply - missing B+(supply voltage) coming from this board feeding the inverter board. This is caused by faulty transistor, dried/leaky electrolytic capacitor, open fusible resistor.
2. Inverter board - even the B+ is good from the power supply, if the fuse, driver transistor, driver transformer is faulty no output to the backlight resulting to black picture.
3. Busted backlight - even inverter board is good but if this is busted resulting to black picture also.
Diagnosing the fault is technical and if you don't have necessary tools and test instrument and can't fix it yourself, I would advice you to look for an experienced technician to isolate the problem.
Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

Of course it can be replaced, but first quote it from the repair centre to see it is really worthwhile to replace it or to buy a brand new one.

Do you have an HD ready cable/satellite box? It sounds like your tv is displaying your games in a resolution lower than what it can handle.

I have a Sanyo 42 inch Mode Number: DP42647. I bought it 2.5 years ago, and suddenly, the video is out. The sound is ok, as well as the "power" green LED. By looking at other forums, it seems...


I would just replace the TV, because any guess you make without the testing and equipment is just an expensive guess. New TV's are cheap by comparison. I have had a lot of TV'ds and the best do far is my Vizio 42 Inch LCD. 11 years old no issues.

42'' lcd turns on no picture/menu


Your tv is being attacked by electrical surges which seem very violent and has already damaged some logic controls. Please invest in a AC filter which will protect your tv from such spikes....... but first you need to get your tv serviced from the electrical damaged it has already suffered.

42" TV has sound but no pictures


yea it sounds like a main-board or inverter board.. sounds like the panel of the television is loosing power and you are still getting sound..

Olevia did go out of buss.. but i know this 3rd party repair center called Amergence technology is offering to repair Olevia's. But the thing is that the whole television will have to get service they don't sell parts so you might want to give them a call and get an idea on the repair quote.. 866-965-3842

Vizio 42" lcd powers up with sound only - no picture


It sounds to me that the unit has a faulty inverter board which could be due to an overheated/bulged capacitor. I would send in a claim on it to the factory if it is still under warranty.
