This can be a Power supply failure- some of the filter caps could cooked dry and the yellow glue they use in this power supply turns conductive where it turns dark brown. You can unsolder the devices and feet on the heatsinks and remove them along with the stand-up driver board. Change some of the filter caps-1000u/16V, 470u/16V, 47u/50V, 10u/50V. Scrape and pick off the brown glue from all devices. Removed the fan and found the bearing was seized in it. Power supply will now run properly with the defect fan unplugged.

I had the same problem, except with a flashlight I could see AUDIOVOX when i turned it on and I could see the video when I put a DVD in. It is hard to see even with a flashlight so you have to look closely. Well, I researched and investigated what might be the problem because I was upset that I had the TV for less than two years. Everyone was saying the inverter was defective. Apparently the inverter is what gives the LCD screen the back light to see the video. So I called audiovox and found that thier part's selection was only a power board and a remote control for this TV. I asked them if they could get me an inverter and they did. With shipping cost it was approximately $150.00. They ensured that I know that there is no refund on this part (which is common for electical parts). So I took a chance on it not being the right part for the problem. I replaced the defective inverter myself and it worked. It solved my problem. The inverter is a circuit board that plugs in and has a few screws to hold it in place. I had to remove the back cover first and a couple of brackets inside the tv to get to the inverter and replace it. There is a quite a few screws so I recommend writing down where each came from for easier reassembly. I hope this helps!

if it was manufactured before 2007/8 then probably not- good way to check is to run an auto scan in the set up mode- if the tuner is digital it will find the 7-1 7-2 etc digital channels that have been placed in between the analog stations

There are two places to look for the problems, the backlight inverter board and the power supply. Look at the power supply first since it is easier to get to, look for burnt parts, bad capacitors, etc.
Please post back what you find.
