Hi there and welcome to Just Answer, my name is Richard and I look forward to helping you.

I’m sorry to hear you're having trouble with your TV. I know that can be frustrating. Hopefully, we can get this resolved quickly.

Please note, a rating is only needed when we are finished.

Can you please remove the power to the TV (so unplug it from the power socket).

Then wait 10 minutes, connect the power again to the TV, turn it on and tell me please if it is now operating correctly.

Let me know the results please

I've already tried that

Please tell me what else you have already tried.

Removing the arial and reinserting it. The sound works on all channels so it's picking up reception, just no visuals not even menu listings

If you connect a different device such as a blu ray box, do you get a picture from that?

Customer: replied 12 days ago.
I don't have anything like that, I just have the TV but I've tried to play a DVD and I can see an outline of the images
Expert:  Richard replied 12 days ago.

I am sorry to hear that.


It is the internal invertor for the backlight that has faulted.


I am really sorry about this and you are going to have to return the TV to have this replaced. It will be covered by the warranty if this has not expired, and the replacement will be done at no cost to you.


I am really sorry about this, and if you have problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.


Thank you
