Answers :

I see so many here with no sound/nopicture issues:

ISSUES:

1. IF sound main fuse/s are good.
2. If no power or standby check main fuse, standby power supply and any signsof damage you can see---burnt parts etc.
3. almost all these sets the troubleshooting involves checking voltages on the main power board to narrow down theproblem.
4. Be safe and if you do not know what you are doing don't open the set.

Answers to issues:

1. RE:fuses---if a blown fuse is found get a good replacement(not the genericones like Radio Shack). Many fuses are special even aside from amperage--Don'tput a higher rated amperage fuse in the set for any reason.

2. RE: power supply in set: if total dead aside from main fuse the set uses astandby power supply that runs 7/24 and a main supply (some are combined andsome not.

Here aside from checking fuses you want to examine all the filter caps on thepower/standby to see if any are puffed up or buldged up in some fashion--Iattach a photo of a good one---top should be silver metal and PERFECTLY flatand have no brown material coming out on top or bottom.

What happens in the standby area is they use caps with too low a voltage rating(saves money) which causes them to fail in a year or two---the standby runs7/24 and the heat dries out the caps and they fail.

3. Trouble shooting consists of the above and then at some point you have to buyand try a board to see if it fixes it or not.

4. Safety first--no TV set is worth getting injured or even killed over.If set is opened at least look for puffed up and bad caps like in thisphoto.5_15_2012_1_19_09_pm.jpg

I have a mistubishi WD-Y57. I replace lamp 7 month ago, and now my tv doesn't work. I have sound but no picture. I took off the plastic grill from the back of the tv to see what it was doing when I tried to power it on. I see the fan turn on and see the light trying to cut on. It flickers light. It try two times before shutting down. If I see light flicking, does that mean the lamp isn't the problem? I tried to read the code light by holding those two buttons in front of the tv.

I recently purchased a used Pioneer Pro150FD and was told it worked. Now that I have plugged it in, I get a clicking that the power is on, but there is nothing coming on the screen. I also see a small red light illuminating from within (through the back panel) when the power is switched on. I am using a "osiris" remote that came with it and the control says "PIONR" but the switch doesno't work. I have installed new batteries in the remote. Any thoughts?

Black screen I have a Samsung un46d8000 flat screen TV which is about 8 months old. It has so far worked without problems but yesterday when switching on there is just a black screen. Sound from all inputs is fine and it looks like that there are 4 small lights in the back that you can see glowing through the screen. Its still under warranty if I can find the receipt!! If I dont find the receipt any ideas? I did have a peek in the back and there looks to be one big board that drives the Screen.

I have a 63' projection TV. The picture is off. All of the lights are working, but the images are fuzzy, and you see the image tripled. The three images overlap each other in red, green, then blue. It seems like the colors have to put back in sync to form one clear image. Also I can see a bow effect at the top of the screen.

WS-65807 quit working. We only had it connected to DirectTV via the DTV connection. Now when I turn it on I just get three color lines on the screen. When I push the reset button I get no change. When I adjust any of the top three adjusters at the front I do see a change to each line. If I turn one of these all the way left, the TV turns off.

I have replaced my lamp in my DLP model WD-62526 Mitsibishi but the screen is dark, so dark that I have to watch it with teh light off. But the funny thing is it isn't as dark as it was when it went though. I hav eremoved the back to search for the ballast but I couldn't find it. I think I would have to remove some more components of the Tv to see where it is. Could it be possible that one of the fuses could of went in the tv which is causing the tv to be dark. Also the HDMI doesn't work either.
