Sound but picture is barely visible on Sylvania flat screen
I have Sylvania flat screen which I got a couple of years ago. Last year I went to Iraq. Up to that point it was working just fine. When I came back I left the military and am currently moving to another location. During that time, the TV was never used. Tonight I plugged it in and there is sound. But after a brief flash that shows what channel its on, the screen goes black. My friends brother says he can just barely make out the words of the menu option when I put the menu on but you have to be right in front of it to see it.
Is this fixable and how?

I quote: "A couple of days ago after using it when trying to see the pictures on
the camera the LCD did not show anything. The lens reacted and even
take pictures but nothing was visible on the LCD screen."
That means that there was a problem either with a LCD display or with ribbon cable.
Now:"I tried charging the battery and removing it from the camera, now the
camera only does a bit sound when switching on but nothing else, the
lens does not even come out."
That means that the ribbon cable had probably shorted, now the camera may be furtherly damaged.
The camera must be disassembled to access the LCD and fix the problem. The repair must be done by an experienced technician, as to access the LCD you need to remove both covers.
This problem sounds like a short inside the picture tube itself unless a driver transistor failed that drives the red gun in the CRT. You may have to take it to an authorized repair facility if the picture tube is still in warranty.
