    I HAVE SAME PROBLEM WITH THE KDL40V2000U. WHEN I TURN THE TV ON, THERE IS NO PICTURE AT ALL, JUST A BLACK SCREEN. BUT I CAN HEAR THE SOUND PROPERLY. I WONDER WHAT THIS CAN BE? IS THERE SOME SORT OF LAMP THAT COULD'VE BLOWN? I HAVE HAD THIS TV FOR NEARLY 2 YEARS NOW AND IS OUT OF WARRANTY. HOW MUCH WOULD IT COST TO REPARE? THANKS ALL IN ADVANCE

    I have the same problem, but I have an extended 3 year warranty. The service company now has the TV. My TV was 28 mos old.

If your dealer has not already told you, I suggest you unplug the unit from the wall and let it sit for 30-45min. Plug it back in and hope...

The TV has perfect picture but no sound how do I get the sound back on

Are you by chance on the SAP audio channel instead of the main channel? You should be able to go into the menu and look at the audio settings. If you are on SAP change it back to main. Some stations do not have audio on the SAP channel.

Sharp LC-37DB5U stuck on one channel. Won't respond to anything. Put in a new motherboard and same problem persists. Sound and picture are fine

I could be wrong, but it sounds like the TV hasn't gone through channel setup. You have to do this in order for the TV to "learn" the channels, assuming you are using cable. If you are using cable run channel search in the setup menu and see if that changes anything. Can you change channels by manually entering in the channel # and hitting enter?

When using cable input video is good but sound has fuzzy static

Your TVs tuner tuned a little off frequency. It could be as simple as having cable box on where you have good picture but fuzzy sound, use the TVs remote to change the channel and then change it back to proper channel. If that doesn't fix you may have wrong tuning type selected in channel set up menu.

White Noise Sound

Your problem is somewhere between the tuner and video detector circuit. The signal entering your TV carries: video,red color,and blue color as well as sychronizing pulses for color and horizontal and vertical deflection ( actually vertical sync. is derived from horizontal sync.) along with burst pulses to synchronize the color. After all these, the sound is an fm signal entwined with a pilot signal for stereo audio. WHAT a mess! After the audio passes through all this, it is detected and sent to the audio processor. If any frequency has drifted away from it's value then you loose the sound. SO... your problem could be in any of the tuned circuits or in the audio processor IC (chip). Any component changing value could creat this problem. Most likely the audio processor IC. You'd need to have the set checked out by a tech to find your problem. Stargazer
