SOURCE: No picture, only sound


If the menu will not even display then chances are good that it is the power board in the tv. If your up for it, unplug tv, remove the back cover and look for the circuit board with two largest wires in tv going to it. Also has transformers on the board. Then check out the capacitors (cylindrical components). Look at the tops, they have a three piece pie section to them, if they are raised or discolored, they are bad. So basicaly these give the screen a power boost to light up, if they are bad, the screen won't come on.

This is common with lower priced LCDs for some reason.

Google your model number and you may find a cheap fix. I picked up an insignia the other day for free with the same problem you are having. Goolgled model number, it listed this site where I read of this capacitor issue. Looked at the power board and bingo, same issue. Fix is to buy three capictors at Radio Shack for a buck each (alledgedly), and with some soldering your back in business. I'll give it a try.

Good luck with yours,

Unscrew the cable off the cable box on the out to TV end, then screw it back on. You may also try a different type of cable, like HDMI or component cable.

SOURCE: My samsung TV #ln32c350 has

Hi thorn82,
This kind of symptoms indicated of malfunction inside the set as follows :
1. Loose/bad connection - The unit must take apart and check first for bad connection from the power supply board, LCD controller board, and the main board. This will do the same symptoms. Pull-out all of the connectors from the said boards, inspect, and then re-insert and ensure the connections.
2. Faulty Video processor - Video processor circuitry is in the main board. Once this circuitry gone bad, same symptoms will be encountered.
3. LCD controller board - this board process the image feed from the video processor and then feed to the LCD panel. Even the main board is good but this board was already faulty, the video can't be sent to the LCD panel.
4. Power supply - The said board's above has its own supply voltage from the power supply board, if one of the output voltage of the power supply gone bad, the board's in line with the supply will be disable and resulted to that symptoms.
Isolating the faulty parts is quite technical if your not handy with electronics. I would advice you to send it in or look for a qualified technician to troubleshoot the unit.
Prepare $200-$300 for service fee alone plus parts.
Since the unit is still under warranty period, avail it because the manufacturer will fix it for free. Opening the back cover will void the warranty.
Your problem now is the receipt, I would advice you to visit your local dealer where you bought the unit and have a good conversation with them. Tell them the real problem and let's hope for the best. Receipt is just only one proof of purchased of the unit, they have a record to their system for sure for that transaction(but depends on them if they will participate to search for that).
Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

I have a 50" haier tv that won't come on tried numerous plugs in my house moved it from one room to another and it quit working

Sounds like it died a noble death. U might want to check out the Power supply first. Also check the cord to make sure that power is reaching the unit.

I hooked up my cable box up to my sceptre tv and it had sounds but the picture is black and white I even went and bought the blue and green cords but still only black and white

With the blue/green/red cords (Component) you need to get a very good bright light on the connectors so you get the plugged into the correct COMPONENT connectors on the TV. Note, there are white and red AUDIO plugs right near the COMPONENT input so you need to be VERY careful. If you get it wrong, the colors on screen are often off and even black&white.

How is your cable box connected to the TV? Screw on "COAXIAL", Yellow, Red, White "RCA", single flat connector "HDMI" or 5 colored plugs 2 X Red, 1 X White, 1 X Blue, 1 X Green "COMPONENT"

The Wii turns on and will take a disk but nothing shows up on the tv screen.

Make sure that the cord from the console is secure in the Wii and the three colors are plugged into the T.V. in the same color plugs. There is a Yellow for picture, white and red for stereo sound. You probably need to access the TV menu and change the "input" to whatever your Wii is plugged into. For example "A/V 1" or aux.

Beside the 3 colour wire what else is needed to plug into the tv?

If the three color wire your talking about is the Standard Definition cord that comes with the system out-of-box, then nothing. The RCA cord (three color cord) is enough to hook your PS3 up to almost all T.V.s. You would have to do a bit of searching to find a T.V. so old it didn't have RCA jacks on it, so you have little to worry about. The only other cords you need should also have come with your system when you bought it. The power cord, for the PS3 itself, and the USB cord, for charging your controller.

Now if you have a more modern T.V. with HDMI ports, you can go out and buy an HDMI cord to use. This isn't necessary though, HDMI just gives a higher resolution. You'd have a clearer picture, as well as a slightly wider view, but this unnecessary. It's a nice upgrade, but you don't need it.

Have fun with your PS3, and good luck with your gaming!
