Have TV Questions? Ask a TV Technician
Hi , I`m Jack , I will be helping you today Can you please send me a reply when you are ready to proceed ?Note that I need time to type and research for parts and info if needed so don't be surprised if there are delays between repliesAlso ,Can you please give me the tv`s model number written on the back cover ?
Doesn`t happen to be a LG tv is it ?
Model number will be written on the back cover and brand at the front usually but only the model number will suffice
O.k and does it still turn on/off ?
Is the screen just blank with some background light or completely dark like when the tv is off ?If you`re not sure then darken the room and turn the tv off and on again while you observe the screen .Can you see the tv`s own menu for example ?
For the sound you may have a bad connection /cable but right now the picture would be the first thing to look at .
Try the TV's own menu , does it come up ?
O.k then in that case , never mind the sound and the tv will have to come down the wall anyway if the next procedure does nothing ;
Unplug the TV's power cord and hold the power button directly on the tv ,keep holding it for 20 secs or so then let the tv sit unplugged for a couple of minutes before you try it again.Although i do not expect much out of this procedure , it has to be done to confirm that this problem can be cleared or not with a reset.If that does not do it then we are looking at internal problems with the tv.
let me know how that goes.
In case of internal problems then you would most likely be looking at a backlight inverter or led driver board failure in which case the only way I see this being worth the repair would be if you do it yourself.
I mean that I cannot see paying some $150 to have a shop repair it while you can get a new 32" for less than $200 nowadays.
Let me know about your ability to perform the DIY repair and with th model number I will be able to tell you the cost and where to buy the correct parts
