In this article we will see how we can set background image to the combo box when it is non-editable and it is in on state. By default combo box has no image although we can set image to it. Background image will appear only when combobox is in non-editable state and it is in on state. ON state is when list view is open. Normal combo box can be made editable with the help of setEditable method.
In order to do this we have to change the style sheet associated with the combo box, below is the stylesheet code – 

background-image : url(image.png);
border : 2px solid black;

Below is the implementation 


# importing libraries
from PyQt5.QtWidgets import *
from PyQt5 import QtCore, QtGui
from PyQt5.QtGui import *
from PyQt5.QtCore import *
import sys
class Window(QMainWindow):
    def __init__(self):
        # setting title
        self.setWindowTitle("Python ")
        # setting geometry
        self.setGeometry(100, 100, 600, 400)
        # calling method
        # showing all the widgets
    # method for widgets
    def UiComponents(self):
        # creating a check-able combo box object
        self.combo_box = QComboBox(self)
        # making combo box editable
        # self.combo_box.setEditable(True)
        # setting geometry of combo box
        self.combo_box.setGeometry(200, 150, 200, 80)
        # geek list
        geek_list = ["Sayian", "Super Sayian", "Super Sayian 2", "Super Sayian B"]
        # adding list of items to combo box
        # setting style sheet of the combo box
        # adding background image to the combo box it is in non-editable state
        # and when combo box is in on state
        self.combo_box.setStyleSheet("QComboBox::! editable:on"
                                     "background-image : url(logo.png);"
                                     "border : 2px solid black;"
# create pyqt5 app
App = QApplication(sys.argv)
# create the instance of our Window
window = Window()
# start the app

Output : 

When it comes in on state
