Hi, after the power supply to my TV set was accidentally disconnected, I have not been able to get it going again. The blue pilot light comes on but there is no picture and no sound. Can you tell me what the fault could be?

Hi Bob

I may be a few minutes betwen replies whilst I check info and write on this

Ok so the blue light is in the ON mode the set seemingly looks like its on but you have a black screen and no sound?

If you press the menu button of the sets own remote control does the menu come up or not please

Hi Anthony,

If I press the menu button of the set's own remote control the menu does NOT come up.


In fact no matter what button I press the screen remains black and there is no sound.

Hi

Sorry I have connection probs that has forced me to use a dongle sorry about that

OK its likely to be a bad mainboard if the set is not responding yet looks like its on (powerlight lit) if I found a mainboard at the right price do you think you can fit it ?also can you use a meter?

Thank you Anthony,


you've answered my question. The mainboard has obviously gone but I'm not in a position to fit a new one myself. Thank you for your help



Yours
