Question about Akai CFTD2011 20 in. EDTV-Ready LCD Television

1 Answer

While watching it, the screen went black (totally). Sound was still there but no pic. When I tried a different channel to see if it was cable or tv, it shut off. Now the green light will come on and the screen flashes blue for about 1 second and you can see the message in the upper corner "No signal". Then it shuts right back off. I tried a DVD in it and it plays the sound but still a black screen. What happened?

    It turned out to be a diode, which cost about $1 to get a new one. Our son gave us this hint and how to go about fixing it. It worked great!

SOURCE: The channel information/display won't stop popping up every few seconds.

What you all need to do is get away from a coax cable connection. If you have a cable box, or satellite box, take the coax cable off and use red, white, n yellow rca composite cables to connect your recievers to the tv. if you dont have a cable box, either get one, or get a converter box and use a tuner outside of the tuner within the unit. The tuners in those tv's are built to show you when you experience signal fluctation(which is normal with a coax cable) and thats why the box keeps popping up on its own. good louck to you all with this problem

Is the tv shot or just a bulb? it went out suddenly


Standard CRT televisions as in your category don't have a 'bulb' they have a CRT, a Cathode Ray Tube. If there was sound and no picture, something was defective in the video part of the circuitry, now no sound, so something else has blown. 2004, 11 years old, old technology, and HEAVY and bulky. Technology has moved on, and you will be surprised how much. We went from 36" CRT to Samsung 50" Smart TV. HUGE difference! Treat yourself :>)

Does it work on the cable/antenna input jack? Can you get the menu screen to show up? If none of the inputs work and you can't get a menu screen to show up, then it sounds like you may have a bad YSUS driver board.

Screen went black while watching, now ony have sound


Look at the venting grills, you should see whit lights inside the set. If not, the backlight inverter board may have gone out or the power supply supplying the power to the inverter board may have gone out. Those are the two places to look first. It may have bad capacitors in the power supply.

DELL 42 inch Plasma TV


I have a 42" LG LCD TV and just experienced this today. Watching cable, then the screen went to black, but audio continued. I pressed the guide button on my remote and pic came on with my guide menu. But then went to black again 10sec later and has remained that way for nearly an hour. Tried switching off both cable box and TV, disconnecting and reconnecting cables, but no luck. Finally unplugged mains, waited a minute, then turned back on. Everything seems normal now after the reboot. Phew.

No pic but sound :/


You are having a high voltage problem. Quite possibly in the horizontal deflection. I would check the horizontal output and regulator transistors.
