Check the connection between the device you are using and the 32Pd5000, if you do not see a picture. Try unplugging the connection cable and plugging it back in, ensuring it's secured snugly at both ends. If you're using the monitor with a computer, make sure the computer is not in "sleep" or power save mode by touching the mouse or keyboard; computers in sleep mode typically show a blank screen. If there is still no picture, try replacing the connection cable that attaches the peripheral device to the 32Pd5000.
Secure the power cable connection between the 32Pd5000 and the electrical source, if the monitor is not getting power. The best way to do so is simply to unplug the power cable and plug it back in. If there is still no response, try another surge protector or electrical socket.
Check audio settings if there is no sound coming from the 32Pd5000. First, ensure the monitor is not muted by pressing the "Mute" button or the volume up control on the remote. If there is still no sound, check the audio connection cable in the same way described in Step 1. If this doesn't resolve the problem, try replacing the audio connection cable and check for problems with connected audio components.
