My Element tv has a black screen but we can still hear it.?

My Dad was turning the volume down and then he said the screen went black but we can still hear it. We just can’t see it’s completely black. I think it’s the brightness but is it maybe the led light?

    Most probably issue of back light failure.

    Try to shine a flashlight on the screen, if you see something then the backlight failed, but if you don´t see anything then the LCD itself died.

    Non-working TVs make for excellent canvases for you next masterpiece.

    Mine (LG) did the same. £300!for a newer, bigger better TV, not worth getting repaired.

    Dump it unless you want a very large radio.

    Most likely, the backlight failed. 


    A TV repair shop can tell you more after examining the thing.

    The backlighting went out. Turn it off and wait a few minutes, if that does not do it, buy a new one.

    It's probably the back light.  Modern TVs are not designed to be repaired and it's cheaper just to buy a new one.
