    I have a Samsung wall mounted plasma screen TV (42").  The picture went off leaving only the sound.  When I turned the TV off then on. (several times over 2 days), I never get a picture.  The red light at the bottom on the bottom right side of the screen does not come on.  The sound is fine!  Can this be fixed or is the TV trash.

    TV has sound/w no picture. Let it stay on for 45 to 60 minutes and turn it off I have a picture. Some times the picture is green, red or blue. Turn the TV of and on again the picture is fine. Sometimes the TV has no sound or picture but 3 flashing lights. Turn it off and on many times there will be sound and no picture and the process is repeated. Any solutions? The TV is about 8 years old.

Samsung cs21m40mj no picture

I don't know if this helps, but I had the same problem in reverse. Great picture - no audio. I finally unplugged the TV and all devices connected to it (DVD player, cable box, etc.) waited 3 minutes and plug everything in. The audio was restored.

Sony Bravia KDL 46", no picture, standby light blinks 4 times

Since the TV is still receiving power, the problem is going to be with the TV's mainboard.  After you unplugged the TV and plugged it back in, you said the power light went out again, so I assume the standby light wasn't flashing again?  The flashing standby light is indicating an error code so my suggestion is to contact Sony for service options regardless if there is a warranty or not because service is the only solution to this situation.  Don't forget to provide them the error code or 4 flashes repeating.

No picture but has sound

The problem can be caused by a bad sustain board (Ysus Zsus) , the popping sound is often caused by a capacitor blowing up.
The TV must be taken apart and tested before eventually replacing sustain boards.

Sony FWD50PX2/S 50 in. Plasma Television power problem

It does sound like a power supply problem but that can be misleading because a problem somewhere else in the TV can be "holding down" the power supply. This can usually be determined by using some isolation techniques.
