Hi , I`m Jack
Perhaps I can help you with this problem but first i would have a few questions like the tv`s model number so could you please send me a reply when you see this ?

When the screen turns blue can you open the TV's own menu ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Btw it's 164 model
No sound
Expert:  Jack replied 1 year ago.

Yes and the model number would start with the letters LT as in LT-46... ,LT-55.... etc.

Bright blu
Expert:  Jack replied 1 year ago.

Can you see the menu or any of the OSD (volume bar ,input info etc.) ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No
Expert:  Jack replied 1 year ago.

O.k then this problem can only come from the TV's main board and that is where I would need that number at the back starting with the letters LT if I am to give you details

Lt 46164
Expert:  Jack replied 1 year ago.

First down , give me a minute

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
FYI I just turned it on again and it's working but let's see if it goes blue in few minutes
Expert:  Jack replied 1 year ago.

By the way , this looks like a main board problem part # ***** and I can tell you so far that this board is not cheap at around $170 for the board alone .

How do you want to proceed from here ?
Look into this yourself or the repair shop ?

I`m asking because a shop may cost you well over $300 in that case and you can get a new 50 " model for around $500 while this one is a 5 years old 46 " model

No thanks
No help at all
Enjoy your day

No help ???

You got a broken tv that needs parts and repair , I`m not a parts supplier and I cannot be there so I`m telling you what you have looking at and the costs along with part numbers , I don`t know what you call this but that is all info`s you did not have .

A repair shop will give you an estimate at home for around $125 paid in advance repaired or not
