I have the same problem. The only way to get the TV to come on is to unplug it, but once you get it back on it turns itself off again in a few minutes.

SOURCE: TV Picture Goes Black

I had the same exact problem.
I removed the bulb and cleaned it. There is a small screen at the top of the bulb and it was covered with dust. Once it was cleaned I replaced the bulb and it solved the problem.
Thanks to those who posted the solutions

Could be the signal board has a bad cap, in this case it sounds like you are getting intermitten power to the inverters....when the tv goes down and of course you have audio....Shine a flashlight on to screen and see if you have a picture...look carefully. If this is the have the above problem!

If there is still about ? 24. Volts coming from the Power Board when it goes dark, it will be the Inverter board that needs replacing. If not, it is the Power Board that needs replacing. The Voltages should be written next to the sockets & plugs on the Power Board.

I have an Element FW408 no picture only sound

Do the flashlight test. With the TV on and listening to a program, shine a flashlight on the screen. If you can see a faint picture, the LED driver is bad. If you cannot see a faint picture, the T-con board is bad. TV Parts Universal TV Stands DLP Chips ShopJimmy You can get parts here.

Hi i have a seiki SE50FY28 led tv that has no sound or picture. i did the flashlight test and i do see the menu appear. what part do i need to replace??

sounds like a backlight failure (fluorescent tube that illuminates the display element)

can be a little tricky to replace as requires significant disassembly
