Fault at its main digital board. Short circuited component/s at it. Contact any service technician; or the authorized service center. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.
Before going further; try a hard reset first. If it does not help you, replace the main digital board. There are two methods to reset TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight is better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; visit the site linked here.

SOURCE: plasma tv has no picture but green led is on

Try unplugging the TV for a few minutes (discharges the ballast/ps) then plug in and attempt to power on. I have the 42P Vizio over two years old and ran into the same problem a few times. First thought was a power supply issue, but the unplugging trick worked. Good luck.

Why can I hear 50 rear projection tv no picture yes on sound?


The projector and the audio system for the TV are completely separate. There are many reasons your projector may not be working, however it's failure will not always effect the audio which runs through it's own circuits and amplifier to the speakers. Think of this as if you had your computer's VGA out plugged into a projector and the mini audio output plugged into amplified speakers. One will not effect the other unless your problem is a loss of power.

Sound but no picture


Hello!
Does sound comes out of TV speakers? Or you have "home theater" hooked up to?
In first occasion: TV turns on, stays on, display blinks once, then nothing?
Inverter is at fault. Second occasion: TV turns on, stays on, display glows dark, sound OK, no picture: T-con board at fault. Third occasion: TV turns on, shuts off, sound is coming through "home theater"-OK. Power supply or inverter, or T-con are at fault. TV need major diagnostics and repair in every case. Let me know if you can handle that. Will guide you through the process.
Thanks,
Alex.

I have completed the setup of my Day-Timer Mwave Tx12626x Timex Electronic 7 Day Timer. I turned on my television, then plugged it from the outlet, then plugged it into the timer. The TV will not turn on...


Open following link to identify your timer
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html#Timex

1) Don't expect the timer to turn on the TV picture.
I have my TV plugged into power strip.
Each night the power strip is off. When power strip resumes next day, the TV is READY to be turned on with the remote control. The picture does not pop up when the power strip goes on.
Same is true for timer.
Try your power strip and see if picture turns on after power strip is turned off-on.
Timer will work same as on-off switch on power strip.

2) Is the power strip interfering with timer?
Plug timer directly into wall outlet and see what happens.
Add a comment and let others know what happened.

3) Battery: Timer requires 2-hours for initial battery charge.
Battery back-up protects programs when power is off.
I don't know if battery is made for repeated on-offs if you turn off power strip each night.
These batteries are not replaceable however timer has 1 year limited warranty.

4) Plug lamp into timer and see if timer operates lamp. This will say if TV electronics are interfering with timer operation.

5) Load: This timer says it is for appliances, which implies it should be rated typical 15A 1800 watt

Absolutely feel obligated to upvote the help.
Or take advantage of fixya expert assistance live.
For a price, expert works with you while you work on timer or any do-it-yourself project.
Fixya is always less expensive than a service call.

No picture 2 days ago power went out thru out the neighborhood, once power came back TV worked great. today, go to power on TV, here it clicking, but no picture... cable box working, cable working in 2nd...


It sounds like there`s a sort on the secondaries of the power supply. Before the power went off, did you ever turn the tv off by unplugging it?? In other words, did you turn the power off completely to the set or leaving it in standby?? if you always left it in stby, it will be the capacitors in the power supply, they dry out if the power is always on, so they will need replacing. If you did turn off the power, then I think you`ll find that the power cut had nothing to do with the fault you`ve got now, it will be the Line Output Stage which has failed or gone short circuit.

No Audio


IT MAY BE A GOOD IDEA TO CHECK THE WIRES BEHIND THE HEAD UNIT AS THIS IS WHERE EVERYTHING IS POWERED FROM, MAYBE A LOOSE EARTH LEAD OR MAYBE A LOOSE POWER LEAD, SOMETHING SOUNDS LOOSE.

Does Not Turn On


I actually ended up with this set. It turned out to be a very nasty short circuit on the audio board. To trouble shoot disconnect PSD5 to isolate the power supply. It's the 3rd connector from the back on the left side of the power supply. If you turn on the tv and now see 5 green leds and the one red led, look for a short outside of the power supply. The short on this set was on the left side of the audio board (which is to the left of the power supply) There was a wire add and a part add covered in wax. The bare wire was touching a ground but you have to remove the wax to see it. Since this may be a change that was made to all sets of this model, it may be a common failure. Good Luck all.
