Power but no picture or sound

Have had this tv for about 6 years now with no problems. Had work done on my house and didn't have tv on for about 6 months. Lots of dust from contractor so I covered tv with plastic to prevent dust getting in. Once turned tv back on, worked fine for about 2 wks. Then, all of a sudden, it turned on and immediately turned off. Was advised by a service tech to unplug it off for about 24 hours and then try it again. After 24 hrs, it turned back on (and it will turn off), but no picture or sound. I assume there are some capacitor or other issues and that I will need to have it serviced. My questions are: 1) what is are the likely parts that will need to be replaced and 2)could dust could have initiated this problem? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I recently just experianced the exact same thing. I had a service tech come out and he told me that one of the tubes leaked. It destroyed one of the boards and he said that you can not get the tubes anymore. So I guess I just throw this awesome tv away.

Is hard to tell if the set is going to need parts or not,maybe not,since you protected the set from dust is not likely the cause of the problem,after a while the units develop loose conections because of the heat dissipation some components have and the solder conections become loose.Be safe and seek assistance if you are not too familiar with tv service.

Power on, no picture, no sound

more than likely you have a faulty main board, common problem with Vizio's. There is a slight possibility the power supply is at fault. I would recommend you get a diagnosis to be sure.

No picture, no sound, but TV will power up

Average life on all brands and models is 3 to 5 years. Average repair on this size and type of set varies but is usually from 150 to 250 parts and labor. I see very few sets of this type (any brand) that are more than 6 years old.

The bulk of sets in our shop (over a hundred sets on average) that have failed are under 2 years of age.

Luxor tv no picture or sound

Connect the TV to another power outlet that you are sure, works. Try changing the input device to something you are sure works. Switch off TV manually, switch off power, remove plug and retry after 48 hours. If problem persists, please refer it to a qualified service technician.
