Electronics Repair Questions? Ask an Electronics Technician
Hi , I`m Jack and I will be helping you today
Please note that I am an independent audio/video tech. that depends on your positive rating to get paid by this website and I have no control over the phone (or other) offers , they are sent by the website ,not by me but let me know if you`d rather do this on the phone.
That being said , a few questions coming up ;
What is connected to this tv ?Cable box,satellite,dvd,games etc. ?
Fox the tv network ??
How do you receive that ?
How about the dvd /BD is it also blank ?
o.k and both of them show the same problem sound and no picture ?
The BD (blueray) and satellite have the same problem ?
did you try the BD ?
O.k and both of these units are connected HDMI to the tv ?
Does your satellite have color coded component video out that you could try for a test ?
You could have a hdmi failure on the main board but that would not affect those
O.k then not too many things can do that if you can still see the tv`s menu , your tv`s main board went defective
How old is this tv now ?
What is the model number of this tv ?
That would be on the back cover
Thanks , give me a couple minutes please
Here is something for you to try as a last ditch attempt before repairs ;
On the tv`s remote press and hold the arrow up while you press power on the tv itself , this will reset it to factory default .
Let me know how that goes
Sure hoped that worked because the only supplier i could find for that board i believe is crazy , he wants $431 for that board .
You can practically buy a new tv with all the bells and whistles for that price
Here it is anyway ,check the link below but i would certainly recommend using that money towards a new tv set !

Any questions on this ?Remember that you can come back here at any time after rating (no charge) if you have other questions related to that
Sony is good , so is panasonic and perhaps samsung
Just stay with popular names and you should be fine , void the too good to be true deals , they usually are too good to be true
Dont forget the rating and cheers
