Hello,

My tv screen went all black. Sony Bravia. The green light comes on and off when I turn "off" and "on" but doesn't turn into a picture. omg Ive been online for 3 hours and no one has ever had this problem or what? lol.

first i'd say try all the normal things...

swap sources, check to see if the osd comes up, etcetera. it might just be that the tv isnt receiving a signal from the source its tuned to. see if theres a way to factory reset the tv, try it.

if no matter what you do nothing shows up...

maybe the backlight burned out or maybe something on the mb burned out. go over and sniff the tv, notice any smell? if this is the case, i dont suggest trying to fix it yourself.

I've had this problem twice. Here's how I solved it. Turn TV on, as soon as BRAVIA goes off the screen, count a second or two and then quickly change channel. Up or down doesn't matter. Don't just do it once either to be sure press channel up or down multiple times. Timing is key. I don't have cable so this happened to me while surfing through the digital channels. I came across a channel that showed on screen for a second and then this problem happened. Anyways , good luck!
