Troubleshoot a Black Screen
Getting a black screen on your TV is frustrating, but a little red light could be the key to helping you solve your problem. Follow the instructions below to resume watching TV as soon as possible.
Red Standby Light is On
If the Standby Light is on, this means your TV is receiving power, but is not powered on.
Red Standby Light is Off
If the light is off, there are two possibilites. Either the TV is on, but displaying a black screen, or the TV is off and not receiving power.
Using the remote, press any button except power. If something appears on-screen, the TV is on and the issue is with your signal. Try testing a different source, or a streaming app.
If nothing happens, try unplugging your TV from the power outlet for about 30 seconds. When you plug it back in, try to bypass a surge protector if you have one. Try powering your TV on.
