Suppose it’s Sunday today, you are getting along with your friends at your place, thinking of having a great movie time together, but your TV goes blackout.

Not a good thought, right?

So, to prevent we’re going to address one such issue, where JVC TV shows a black screen but sound still works.


Why is my JVC TV screen is black but sound still works

Reason 1: Wrong Output Source

Basically, the Output button on the remote control redirects you to the Input source menu. From there, you can select the output source you want to display,such as your TV, HDMI-connected devices, or a USB drive. So, if your TV has been put on the wrong output it wouldn’t play your picture.

Reason 2: Issues with the input source

If you think your TV is put on the correct output. It is possible that input of the TV like satellite receiver/cable box is not working properly. Generally, it’s an issue with the cable connection.

If everything is connected to their respective place, there could be an issue with the signal or the box itself. Contact your service provider or customer support immediately.

Reason 3: Overheated TV Lamp

Many of you are not aware of the fact that there’s a lamp inside your TV that helps to project colors & images onto your TV screen. Overheating not only diminishes the lamp’s shelf life but your TV picture life as well.

TV’s automated system has turned off the TV screen to prevent any hardware damage.

Reason 4: Sleep Mode is turned ON

The sleep timer in your smart TV helps you to shut your TV off automatically after a set amount of time. To be very precise, the TV is put on stand by.

So, if your TV has been put on sleep mode, most probably the power is still on – just not be able to display picture on the screen.

Reason 5: Backlight failure

Backlight is one of the most important component on a TV. And if this component fails, your TV won’t work at all.
