That being said , a few questions coming up ;

The BD (blueray) and satellite have the same problem ?

did you try the BD ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
try every one of them even just the tv same sound but no pictures

O.k and both of these units are connected HDMI to the tv ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
last night when watching tv it went blank then come back on twice

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

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
mate all i am getting is sound on all things no pictures

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 ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
5 years old it a lcd digital 55 in

What is the model number of this tv ?

That would be on the back cover

Thanks , give me a couple minutes please

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
no worries

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

no good i think its time to buy a new one LOL

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 !

Thanks Jack you are right i will go and get a new tv i really appreciate your help. any sggestion on a good tv

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
