Have TV Questions? Ask a TV Technician
Hello , my name is JackPerhaps I can help you with this problem but first i would have a few questions so could you please send me a reply when you see this ?
Hi , for reference later , could you give me the tv`s model number ?
Is the screen just blank with some background light or completely dark like when the tv is off ?If you are not sure then darken the room and turn the tv off and on again while you observe the screen .
Still had the sound when the picture went off ?
O.k then beside the no picture situation you are saying that the tv appears to turn on/off with the remote as normal ?
O.k then this is a known problem with the TV's main board , namely its eeprom chip .
how do you want to proceed from here ?Look into this yourself or the repair shop ?
Let me know and i will help you along if you wish to look into repairing this yourself ,otherwise i will give you the details and costs you could expect.
By the way , is it over or under a year old ?
O.k then just over the year old and in any case these rca have to be shipped out to the closest service center and for a 50" that could be expensive and complicated.
Give me a minute and I will give you some details
The main board for this tv is not very expensive at $70 so you will know what it cost in case they try to markup the price a bit too high .
There are several versions of it and you can see them at the link below , click on it and you are looking at the main boards ;
To have this replaced at home should not cost you above 150 to $175 + parts , so at the most $250 altogether .
