Thank you for using Just Answer my name is ***** ***** I will help with your question. Does the screen light up briefly when you turn the tv on? If it does it means the inverter or the screen has failed, if it is the inverter that is replaceable. If the problem is the screen the cost of replacement would be more than the tv is worth.

Hi. No the screen does not light up at all. There is sound. I did the touch test and I can see no images at all. Thank u

Do you see a picture if you shine a torch into the screen?

I am sorry but I feel the inverter or screen has failed would you be looking to repair the tv yourself or would you like me to suggest a local repairer who could have a look at it for you.
