I'm willing to bet it's the main board. Its the board that all the video and audio inputs. What is the model number I could find the part for you. You could change it out yourself, Its not that hard. Let me know.

had the same problem. if you take out the power supply in the back of your tv ( easy to get to just a few screws in back to get to the box then a few more to get into it and some quick disconnects) you can take it to a local tv repair shop and they can remove the two green capacitors in the upper left of the circuite panel and place in 16v ones that can actually handle the power needed. do not try to do it yourself although the new capacitors only cost 2 dollars one wrong move and you burn the wires on the board. the repair man only charged me 54 dollars well worth it considering polaroid wanted to charge me 500 to fix a 2 dollar part that should have been recalled. they are in the busines to make money but if any of us did what they did wede be considerd con artist. final note since ive replaced the capacitors my tvs worked better than when i bought it

Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. As the sound is working fine then the issue seems to be with a bad inverter board and/or it is the not getting the required power supply (20vdc) from the power supply board of the unit. To resolve this issue you'll have to open the unit and check the inverter board which is the power supply source for the backlights. If that's the issue then it's always better to replace the inverter board completely just to avoid any future issues.
Please accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

Thanks
Rylee

This is definitely a problem with the LCD controller of the tv or the LCD panel itself. However if I were you I would hope that its just the controller(which costs about 50$) and go ahead with the replacement to see if that resolves the problem

This going to be tough one to figure out, but at least the back light inverter board and power supply are working, unhook it at least 1/2 hour?
You may have bad main logic board problem. Try reading my guide here and see how much the main baord may cost you.

Westinghouse SK26H240S - Sound works but no picture?


There are two places to look for the problems, the backlight inverter board and the power supply. Look at the power supply first since it is easier to get to, look for burnt parts, bad capacitors, etc.

I have a 32" TV/DVD combo westinghouse LCD TV. When I turn the TV on I get no picture. There is sound. DVD player does not show picture either, I have sound but no picture.


This is a backlight or inverter Problem. Based on the model you have, I am guessing the inverter is defective.

Inverter is defined as the board in the TV that supplies power for the flourescent lights inside the LCD TV that provide backlighting for the TV's Display

46" SAMSUNG IS NOISY AND SOUNDS LIKE A AIRPLANE WHEN TURNED ON


Most high voltage electronic parts in a tube style television only have a life of 1-3 years. All of your internal parts are due to burn out or fail.

I would give up and sell/give away this tv and buy a new LCD or Plasma version. Repairing and old tube style tv is probably going to cost over 500 dollars. Just put that money to a nice new one instead. I know it sucks to say goodbuy to your old friend, but the era of the tube tv has ended.
