I am having this problem on this tv I just got used, its like it is not getting any a/v input. the screen is just black, no snow, nothing, except the on screen menus seem to work fine. i have tried all a/v (but not component), and cable to no avail. sound gets louder and softer, but is snow only, not what is coming in. i've checked the input (a/v / cable, etc) and channels, they are correct, but nothing. no remote.
I own a pawnshop and all my other tv's work from the same input, so thats not it. supposedly my employee that took it in tested it, but who knows. thankfully i've only got $60 into it, but is it worth fixing or calling a repairman?

Re: Black Screen, but menu shows up
If you are sure that it is connected right and tested the audio inputs because to do that you will need an original remote, then you have a bad tuner or input switcher IC and no I am afraid that the TV most likly is not worth fixing. Good Luck

Select the input channel for your Fire TV - Turn on your TV and select the input channel for the HDMI port you used to connect your Fire TV. You should then see a loading screen with the Amazon Fire TV logo 4.
well 1st before id go changing any parts I look at weather or not the input is selected correctly over to the input that im providing a known good picture signal with (antenna,cablebox,etc.), you'd be surprised how many times I get a call and I go and use the input select buttons on set itself (NOT REMOTE) and whhoolaaaa! there it is , of course I always hear next I didn't change that !!
a short comings of todays modern TV's if you arnt having any signal into it ,the screen is black and the set-up menu wont display on a black screen
Make sure you haven't selected the wrong input using the input or source button on your remote control. You may have to cycle through several choice until you get to TV or Tuner or something similar. Cycle slowly, some TV's take a few seconds to render the picture one you choose a different input source.
You have your TV in the "Teletext" mode. Go into the TV menu and select the closed-captioning menu and turn off the text function. What you are seeing is the result of the TV's captioning circuit latching onto a false text pilot signal and then throwing up the black box on the screen.
