Notice how the display actually shows for about a second, then all of a sudeen the screen goes "blank."
A few things:
-When the screen goes blank, it’s actually not “off.” The green light is still on, and when I play around with scrolling with the channels using the remote, when I turn it off and turn it back on, I see that the channels change. So clearly, the TV still accepts input from my remote on the TV buttons itself. But it’s just the display that’s not displaying correctly:
-This problem occurred right before I connected the Playstation 3 HDMI cable to the TV. I’m not sure but the PS3 could have possibly messed up the settings
-Here is more information about the TV, the model number and stuff:
Anyone know the solution or what the actual problem is? Hopefully I can fix it. I’ve tried resetting the TV to default settings, but that didn’t work. I also tried calling Sony, but they couldn’t find a solution and they suggested to get someone to look at it, but I’m sure it would far too much money for an expensive repair. If I can’t find a solution, then I’ll most likely just buy a new LED/LCD TV, because it’s cheaper than repairing this one.
I'm sorry to hear about your TV. Try the steps below to isolate the issue.
When the screen goes black, try to pull up the Menu of the TV by pressing the Menu button on the supplied remote or on the TV itself? Does the menu appear on the TV screen? Do you have a cable box connected to the TV?
If the menu does not appear on the TV screen, do a Power Reset.
1. Turn off the TV. 2. Unplug the power cord of the TV from the electrical outlet. 3. Let the TV remain without power for 60 seconds. 4. Plug the power cord of the TV back into the electrical outlet. 5. Turn on the TV. Observe the TV.
If the screen goes black, pull up the Menu of the TV again. If the menu appears, try another video source (ex. cable box, dvd player, gaming console and etc.), check if the screen will still go black. But if the menu does not appear or the issue happens with another video source, that may be an indication that the TV is for service. Refer to this link to locate the nearest Sony authorized service center in your area. Only a technician can diagnose what is wrong with the TV so it will be best to contact a service center.
