What are some good troubleshooting steps for my new tv?

I can't get a picture, but the sound is fine. I just don't know where to start with tv troubleshooting.

Start troubleshooting by checking the auto vedio cable's in the back of the tv to see if they are connected to the correct port and plugged in all the way.

modern TVs have unbelievable numbers of options and settings. when you know how to use it, there are advantages to all of this, combined with all the connectivity options (cable, over-the-air broadcasting, dvd player etc), it gets complex pretty fast. reading the manual is your best bet.

Start by reviewing your owner's manual. These frequently include troubleshooting tips. If doesn't help, the next step is to check all of your wiring and connections.
