I just bought this TV in January and only used it with normal/average use. I was playing an Xbox 360 game this afternoon with no issues whatsoever. I turned it off about 5pm and just tried to turn it back on at 8:30pm, same night.
TV turned on, per usual, made a weird low screechy sound, looked to be booting up like it normally would, but the screen never fully turned on. There were faint glimpses of an image that has since faded away. The audio, however, is loud and clear.
I've seen TV's die before and it appears that the screen/tube/bulb just burned out. Please tell me I'm wrong. Any help or ideas would be appreciated seeing as my warranty just conveniently ran out this month. Thanks, SL
Does anything show up on the screen at all (if you change inputs for example). Is the screen a black signal, or does it look like there is no power going to the screen (as if it were off). You're using HDMI?
A few things you can try. Unplug and re-plug every single connection (sounds silly, but it has fixed many an issue.)
Try out a different connection (if you're on HDMI try component cables, or even just the oldschool RCA cables (yellow video cable) and see if anything happens.
If not unplug overnight and try again in the morning.
If not you might just have to call the company and see if the cost to repair is worth it.
There's nothing on the screen at all. At first it seemed like there wasn't a signal so i did unplug/replug all the input.
I switched between HDMI and component a few times. Haven't tried the RCA's yet, I'll find something to plug in.
I left it unplugged from the wall for about an hour, replugged it to the same effect. I will leave it overnight though, not much of a choice.
The thing I noticed is now it makes no sound when it "boots" up. Even when it was fresh out of the box it would always make a "CD spinning" sound when the logo appeared, before the actual picture. Now it's silent and no signs of visual life.
I have the same tv if your red power light turns green but the picture is black it is your power supply. You can buy online and install in about 15 minutes. If it is worth the money can't remember what I paid but it lasts for about 2 years on average.
Omg same exact t.v. and same exact problem. Im scared to send it back to the manufacturer because that is a big risk on it getting lost or damaged in the shipping process. I also dont know how long it will be before i get it back.
