Question about Audiovox FPE3206 32 in. LCD Television

Audiovox FPE3206 - Power Light is Blue/ON but Screen is BLACK

I have an Audiovox FPE3206 - 32" LCD Flat Panel. The TV Power light comes on (turns blue - the color red indicates OFF) but there is no sound or picture. It went black while I was viewing the TV. This TV is less than 2yrs old. UPC is 044476-03222. I called Audiovox and they do not have a repair center for me to take it or ship it to because it is 8 months out of warranty. How convenient! If it was still IN warranty, they'd have a repair place for me to get it serviced. Make sense of that one! :(

    Not sure if that inverter board would help me Richard. I don't see anything when I put in a DVD either, just black, no sound, nothing.

    Same problem and no sound either and they wouldn't offer any solution to me either. My television is just over 1 year old. Can I take it to any dealer to be fixed?

I had the same problem, except with a flashlight I could see AUDIOVOX when i turned it on and I could see the video when I put a DVD in. It is hard to see even with a flashlight so you have to look closely. Well, I researched and investigated what might be the problem because I was upset that I had the TV for less than two years. Everyone was saying the inverter was defective. Apparently the inverter is what gives the LCD screen the back light to see the video. So I called audiovox and found that thier part's selection was only a power board and a remote control for this TV. I asked them if they could get me an inverter and they did. With shipping cost it was approximately $150.00. They ensured that I know that there is no refund on this part (which is common for electical parts). So I took a chance on it not being the right part for the problem. I replaced the defective inverter myself and it worked. It solved my problem. The inverter is a circuit board that plugs in and has a few screws to hold it in place. I had to remove the back cover first and a couple of brackets inside the tv to get to the inverter and replace it. There is a quite a few screws so I recommend writing down where each came from for easier reassembly. I hope this helps!

Tv screen went black and no sound

Look at the power supply first; look for burnt parts, bad capacitors, etc.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capacitor_plague
Please post back what you find. It sounds like at least you do have the 5V standby power supply working but the main supply is not getting the 'ON' command from the main board, or the power supply is gettin ght e 'ON' signal but failed to turn on.

Audiovox LCD FPE3206 problems

Same thing here. Seems like there is an issue with the power supply. There is an interesting buzzing sound coming from the power supply. The power supply is located underneath the rear panel of the set. The panel is relatively easy to remove and it looks like the Power Supply would be pretty simple to replace.

Would like to know where to get a new one. This TV is just over a year old and out of the manufacturers warranty period.

If anyone else has tinkered around with this set and has any other incite to share Id be very interested in hearing it.

Thanks
