    what is wrong when a plasma tv has sound but no picture?

    I forget the exact technical explanation (my electronics tech husband is already in bed), but basically plasmas are notorious for having the screen go out. There are one or two less common possibilities (and if no one more knowledgeable pops in before tomorrow I'll be able to tell you exactly what they are when my husband wakes up...I just do the paperwork and deal with customers, he does the repairs), but the screen is by far the most common and generally goes out when the TV is around 2-5 years of age. If that's what happened there's not a lot you can do, since the screen is roughly 85% of the price of the TV.
