Cant find where to connect cable wire to tv
Looking at the back. there are two vent openings. Under the right vent there is an indentation that has composite video / audo connections. it is to the right of those, should be a small piece of cable comming out off the back. At the end of the cable is wher you connect the cable.

LCD TV has sound but no picture.
Shine a small bright light at the screen when on and see if you can see a faint picture in the dark screen. If you can then your backlighting is not functioning due to ccfl (inverter), power supply, or back light lamps.

No red light on TV so doesn't turn on, yet cable box lit
hello, check you power cable make sure it is properly attached.
test your power outlet, also try using another outlet if possible,
try reseting your fuse box switches.
if it is not your outlets then you may have a fualty power supply, if theres no red light means theres no power reaching the internal circuts it may be numerous reason for this or even a simple blown fuse on the powersupply, but basically no red light means no power.
unfortunatly one or more of your internal board may need to be serviced or even replaced this is not something you want to do your self the voltages inside of these systems are very dangerous and you need model specific service manual,schematic, and electronic circut test equipment. if your electronically inclined you can check to see if your fuses are blown but i dont recomend it unless you have some basic safety and electronics training.
besides this most of these tv's need to have there voltages tested and adjusted after board replacements.
suggestion: search for a qualified service center who can give you a estimate for repair, search around some companies offer free estimates
and will even come out to your home and check and repair your tv on the spot.
if it is under warantee you may be able to get a replacement or repair without charge. if not then get your estimate find out whats wrong and find out what service center offers the best price for the service or repair.
hope this helps
good luck and happy holidays

I found this on the net:
Try this, there are 2 versions of this set, one of these will work.
ENTER 062596 ON REMOTE
WITHIN 5 SECS PRESS MENU
SERVICE MENU SHOULD APPEAR
OPTION 1 USE RIGHT BUTTON TO SELECT REGION "ALL"
NOW PRESS MENU 3 TIMES TO EXIT
OPTION 2 TYPE 00 PRESS OK
THEN MENU THREE TIMES
GO IN TO STANDBY AND POWER BACK UP
Option 2 worked for me. The thing I was failing to do was going in and out of 'standby'.
Also there is no 'all' instead 00 = 'all'

Probably bad inverter board. It has a short in inverter board and as soon as it powers up it detects the excessive current draw and shuts the set back off. Open it up, unplug the power supply connections to the inverter board then try to turn it on, if you get a green light then the inverter is bad. Try E-bay for replacement board.

Try unplugging the set for 2 minutes first then try operations again. If that doesn't fix it maybe one of the buttons on the TV is stuck or the remote control is sending erratic commands.

I have a Philips tv model 49PFL4909/7. When turned on, standby light blinks and logo appears on screen for 2 seconds. Tv shuts off with a pop noise. Replaced main board, same problem. What next?
Ah, the let's try changing this method of repair.
Here is a question that we see often.
I've replaced everything in my television because it previously had a black screen with no lighting. Now it doesn't turn on at all and all I have is audio. What could be the cause ?
So your television stops working properly and you think it must be easy to fix, because you can buy boards on eBay, and you can watch YouTube videos. So you make a decision, you buy a board and you fit it, but the television still doesn't work! This is a classic case of the 'let's try replacing this' method of television repair and illustrates why it is a bad idea. It doesn't work for a number of reasons. To correctly diagnose issues, you need to know every board, what is does and every component on the board. You need to know which part has failed, replace the component, or replace the board. The parts you purchased off eBay were probably out of scrapped sets and not tested. The part you put in was dead when you put it in, so you just moved on to another guess at what might be the cause and replace a board that is fine. And so it goes on, you change all the boards and it still doesn't work. Did you notice the large print that says 'No Refunds, NO Returns'. This is to stop you sending your old one back and saying it didn't work, but the unscrupulous use it as an excuse to get money for selling items that may not work! The course to be a television engineer is 2 years full time education, take it to someone that knows how to diagnose and fix. It is by far the cheapest option. The part that failed might be a 20 cents fuse diode hard soldered to a board. They will charge you $2 parts and an hours labour.
