TV gettin power...but no pic and no sound

So I turn on the TV and the green light comes on indicating that it has power...but there is no picture and no sound. The remote will not function at all (aside from turning the tv on...i.e. the green power light) but will not turn it off, change channel, change input, or change volume etc... The power will go off when I press the main power switch in the back of the unit, or unplug it from the wall. Help please!!!

    I am having the same problem but a little difference. i will have my tv on and within 10 mins the picture is gone. The green light is still on and i have sound but no picture. Before going off i hear a ticking noise and then the sceen goes black. Over the months it is getting worse. I will unplug the tv and it will come on again but the same problem will start all over again. Can someone help? Thanks

Turn tv on. green light solid display, no picture or sound

The flashing green light is likely indicative of a self-test failure, indicating the TV has detected some sort of internal fault. With no picture or sound, one strong suspect is the power supply. Flat-panel TV's have an internal DC power supply that converts the inbound AC current, and when these fail, or are unable to supply a minimum level of power to the set, it can behave as you describe, providing only enough power for the green light to illuminate.

I have a SONY KF-WE50 rear projection tv, a few weeks ago it started to turn the pic and sound off while the green light was flashing around 30 times. After the light finished flashing both the picture and...

the green is the reboot process and is normal.
the red light is an error code indicator.
count the blinks of the red cant be 30 times (I think)
it will blink a sequence, pause, then do it again for a total of three times.
count carefully, it gives you three chances to catch the number it is blinking.

No picture on TV with powerlight on

If you press the power button *on* your TV (rather than using the RC), does the power light still stay on red rather than turn green?
