One night I set my tv timer to get up the next morning. That morning the tv came on at 4:30, when I had it set for 5:30. The tv came on but we had no picture but we had sound and we could change channels with the remote. we can't find a contrast or lighten/darken button on the tv and we can't do it with the remote. The tv is a Apex AT2702 and it is 6-7 yrs old.

You might have set its 'On Timer and Off Timer' time. If so, the set will only switch ON, after the On timer time set. Try to switch on at different times, and when the set switches on, go to its menu, and set both On Timer and Off Timer to '0:00' and save the settings.
Since its a LCD take a flashlight and have the room as dark as possible and with the light look to see if a very very faint image of the picture can be seen or not---many of these sets use a "back light" for the brightness and if that's not on.......
Sounds like the video board when bad. I would say the TV went defective. Use the 90 day warranty to exchange for a new one.
Always use warranty at this point because the newer TV coming out in these days have very lame warranty.
I gave up last night and decided to start with a fresh brain this morning. I started from the beginning that gave the instructions how to set up the machine and I must have hit the right buttom and low and behold, I had acquired what I couldn't do last night.
Thanks for following up with me. I guess I need to give myself more time to figure things out.
no sound, everything was working fine the night before. woke up the next morning, and turned the tv on, and there was no sound at all. nothing from the TV, DVD, and nothing from the Computer. Please help. [email protected].
if the tv set have no sound no picture, they call it dead set your tv need a repairman technician to trace your tv what was part was damage. but if your tv has standby mode mybe you entered the timer code.
How old is this set? If any age, might be time for a replacement, you can get a 50" for under $1000 now. Dont know about your issue, I have never heard of one not turning on because of a timer, suspect you may have a micro issue, the power cord unplug would be advisable, but sounds like you tried it, have you tried the buttons on the front? Do you clean the screen with something liquid? Some of these the buttons go bad and confuse the micro if you use liquids on the screen and let some dribble down the frame. Might pull the speaker grill off and there should be 2 1/4" screws on 2 brackets loosen and the brackets will drop, the screen can come out and there is a long connector that goes from the front to just behind the middle tube and if you unplug it it will kill the buttons on the front and if it is your problem will allow the remote to function, reassemble reverse of disassembly.
