I have a HISENSE 32 LED TV, MODEL #32K20DW -A, SER #32J141913H05831.

If it was me i would check the voltages to the back-lights first and if the voltages are ok i would look at testing the led strips them selfs but if you have never done this before i would recommend taking it to an engineer but if the voltages are not ok change the power board.
Hope this helps.

Samsung led tv un55h6203af doesn't have any back light but has sound

If you have done the flashlight test and an image is present on the screen when the light is shined from behind then the backlight or the backlight regulator is defective, both should be replaced.

Dave, If you have an in home extended warranty already paid for, it will not hurt to have it checked out. The repairman may know exactly what the problem was and change/fix TV if there is a known part that can be intermittent.

Picture does not always come on, sound always comes on, when TV is turned on; some times takes as many as 5 cycles to get picture to activate.

Sounds like inverter boards or backlight boards are defective, there two of them in most Toshibas
and the master board usually dies. If when the tv is on and has sound look closely with a
flashlight shined at the screen you may see movement of the picture, as the screen is most
likely working, just no lights behind it.

Turn on tv, no picture no sound, shined light into screen,nothing

Check your connections and scart leads, take them out and put them in again. It may be a loose lead or maybe a faulty lead, swop them over to see.
