    TV sound on but picture fades to black problem

  • eyesmannnnn Mar 17, 2008

    Have the same problem, my TV set is a Samsung CRT 21". But the thing is it faded for a couple of times and after turning on for the third time I was able to watch without problem for about 6 hours or so. But the following day when I turned it on again, I encountered the same problem.

    Need help very badly, have no budget yet to buy another TV set.

    Many thanks!

    My name is Mary and I am having the same problem with my 10 month to 1 year old 32" RCA XBOX Television. I turn it on and about 10 to 15 minutes later it goes completely black and ther is still sound. It also sounds like the Channels are changing while the screen is black. Please tell me what is going on. Can reach me at [email protected] or (409) 983-8289. Thank you for your assistance.

    3 yr. old 15" Magnavox LCD, picture black, sound fine and remote works to the extent of changing the channels, but no picture comes up. It happened about a month ago and I just pulled the plug and check all of the cords that they were tight and plugged it back in and it worked for 2 months. Yesterday the picture is not there again. I did the same procedure, but this time it did not work. I feel that a three year old tv for $227.00 should last longer than that. If anyone could help, it would be appreciated. KLWfred

I fixed this same problem by opening up the tv and just emptying a can of compressed air all over the thing to get rid of all the particles I could. Works fine now.

I have a 47" Philips LCD TV Oct 2008 Model # 47PFL3603D/F7 When I turn it on, it works fine for about an hour or so. Then the screen goes black, not a fade right to black. Sound is still on.

The backlight inverter is built into the power supply of this unit. When it fades to black screen, do you see any backlight at all?
If you do see some light, you have a 'blank screen' problem and the backlight is not the cause. Since you can still hear sound and can control the tv otherwise, the problem is likely in the TCON board.
If there is no light coming out, perform a flashlight test (search YouTube for details on this). If you pass the flashlight test, then try replacing the power supply board.

My Philips 50PF7321D/37 TV picture turns blue after about 30 secs of being on and I cant seem to get it to stop. Also when I turn the TV on it has a black screen with sound for about 15 secs before it

Unplug both the set and a box or receiver if used with the set, remove from power for several minutes and replug all to see if a reboot will help or not.
