Welcome. I am Mike, an experienced field technician. We are now connected together on this convenient website where I am able to help you. To get started, I need to know you can see this message and are able to reply to me here...

-Is the screen all black or all blue or error message or? Is the screen glowing very slightly?

-Can you bring up the tv menu using the buttons on the tv itself?

-Is the Tv Power LED on or blinking or?

If you can't see the tv menu then it is a problem with the tv itself not what ever is connected. Please try this:
-unplug the tv POWER cord from the wall outlet.
-press and hold the power button on the tv for 20 seconds and release.
-plug in only the tv power cord and turn on.

-try to get the tv menu to come up with buttons on tv (not remotes).

If that does not help then unfortunately there is not going to be any easy reset/fix. The Tv has an internal failure and the back panel needs to come off, complex checks need to be performed with a meter, then parts ordered and installed. If that is something you want to attempt then reply back here and I can assist you further.

If you are unable or unwilling to perform any of these procedures then a repair shop should be consulted but I can tell you that diagnosis, parts, and labor will end up costing just about the same as a new 48" Tv and could take a few days to a few weeks to get all sorted.

I do understand that finding out your tv needs expensive repairs is not pleasant.

Keep in mind, an in home diagnosis by a local repair shop costs $100-$135 up front. So finding out whether your tv can be repaired and how much it may cost from this online chat is well worth it.

Before you go please take a moment to submit at least a 3 star rating at the top of this page so that I get credit for my work.
