I have investigated the information you have provided and it sounds like you have a query relating to a Television that displays a blank screen, however, is able to produce audio. I would suggest we start by checking all the cabling and the perform a power cycle and to do so, please see the steps I have attached below that I would like you to attempt.

  1. Power the tv off. (Press the power button on the remote)
  2. Remove the power cable from the power source. 
  3. Check the HDMI cable and ensure it is connected to the ports firmly on the tv and the device it's connected to. 
  4. Reconnect the power cable to the power source. 
  5. Power the tv on. (Press the power button on the remote)
  6. Lastly, check if the image has returned. 

I hope the information provided today helps and if you have any questions or require any further assistance, please let me know and I will do my best to answer those!
