    Well here is the story, I have a 46" HDTV Widescreen 46805 Mitsubishi RPTV. It is about 3 years old. All I can say until I get home from work, is that I have sound and that is it. Yes the sound is from cable, but no picture. Does anyone know what would cause this to happen all of a sudden?

    There is one piece of good news to this. When I bought the tv I opted for the 5 year extended warranty. Hopefully they will schedule the service call within the 24 hours that they said. I only hope that the TV will be fixed in a timely fashion. Anyways I just thought I would share my story. Anyone else have this happen to them on their RPTV?

    We need more info, but you know that. Chances are it's a loose video cable. Is the problem with all inputs, or just the one?

    Okay, I am got some updated info. The tv is toast. I do have sound from cable but no video. Not a loose cable. I can change inputs, but I cannot tell what I am changing it too. I cannot see input 1, 2, 3, etc... Any ideas?

    Jim,
    Thank you. [​IMG]
    (In these days of drought, though, "farm" and "dust" are almost synonymous!)
    Rich,
    Well, if you can change inputs and never get a picture, that lets out my "bad cable" theory. Unless someone else has a bright idea, I'd call a service tech.

    Jan,

    I already have hopefully someone will be here this week to fix it. And thank goodness for the extended warranty. This fix would probably cost me as much as the warranty.
