Customer Question
I can't get a picture...
I can't get a picture on our Olevia 23" (?) flat screen TV. The on light comes on but not picture. Can you advise on what I need to do or recommend a repair shop. The TV is about five years old I believe, I bought it new from Sharper Image I think.

I have no tv electronics experience, but I do have a couple of sons living in the area that may understand or have some electronic s skills. It would be available on their time when not working or at their convenience to come over and assist in the repair. I would not understand technical language. I don't have a meter or tools. What do you advise?
