I hope we are done with the basics now. We shall start reckoning with the concerned issue, “How to Fix JVC TV sound but no picture.”  


Why does my JVC TV have no picture but sound?

Reason 1: Input, Source, Or TV/Video Button

Basically, the Input button on the remote control redirects you to the Input source menu. From there, you can select the input 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 input it wouldn’t play your picture.


Reason 2: Cable Or Satellite Receiver

If you think your TV is put on the correct input. Then, ensure that your satellite receiver/cable box is turned on, & all the cables are firmly connected to your TV.

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. So, try preventing them.


Reason 4: TV Settings/Sleep Mode

You can see your Apps when you click Home and go to the main control center of the Smart TV. If you click YouTube, play a video, exit, and return to the TV, the TV will be black or blank. YouTube may not be the only App that triggers the blank screen.

The sleep timer in your smart TV helps you to shut your TV off automatically after a set amount of time. 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.
