Have TV Questions? Ask a TV Technician
Hello, my name is ***** ***** I'll assist you. I'm sorry you're having trouble with it. I need additional info to troubleshoot the issue.- Can you please get me the model number written on back of TV?- What video devices/ sources (such as cable box DVD player etc) are connected to TV and does the problem occur on all video input sources?Thanks.
OK, TV model number is ***** info to troubleshoot the problem.
- Does screen glow/ show backlight for a while when power On the TV?
- Does menu screen come up when press menu button on TV?
I'm not sure about it, however, please check side panel of TV to find a small sticker that would have model number info or find the TV user manual for model number info.
Thanks, ***** ***** is ***** helpful.
Please shine a good flashlight on TV screen bit closely, do you observe faint/ dim image of program in screen while TV is On and having sound from TV speakers?
This test will conclude the troubleshooting process.
You mean you don't have flash light to try the test or no faint image visible in screen?
OK, this TV is notorious for backlight system failure where LEDs inside display panel go bad and made the screen dark, however, no image visible with flashlight test indicates it could be corrupted TV firmware (internal software) because of failing EEPROM chip on main board so I would recommend to replace EEPROM chip (it needs soldering work with proper tools and expertise) or entire main board to see if it fix the problem or TV has bad display panel. I wish there was an easy fix available at this point. Please click following link to get required EEPROm/ main board of you're working on TV yourself..
