    TV is Samsung HCN4226WX/XAC

    Exactly the same problem.
    Tried to resolve by (1) turning TV on and off; (2) unplugging power and then reconnecting power; (3) perfecting image function tried.

I had an almost identical problem -- a very dark bar along one side. There was a tiny bit of image there, but it was like looking through a strip of very dark glass. I did not have duplicate images or funny colors. Samsung replaced the light engine under Best Buy's (their Magnolia subsidiary's, actually) extended warranty, and everything was perfect again.

The technician said that there is a felt-like lining in the light engine to prevent unwanted reflections from stray light, and that the adhesive that holds it comes loose allowing it to block the light from hitting the edge of the screen, resulting in the dark bar.

Our Sony Bravia tv picture keeps going light dark light dark. What is causing this problem? It is very annoying when it goes dark because you can't see the picture. Please help.


I have Sony KDL-32XBR9 and I have noticed a similar problem. When the picture is showing mostly black, for example during the ending credits of a movie, the TV will further darken the display. Once the picture lightens back up, the TV will adjust the brightness of the display back to normal. I just called Sony customer support and they indicated it was a firmware problem and they will be sending a USB device in the mail to update the firmware. Hope this helps.

Television has audio but no video


Hello blondemommy0,

This sounds like your inverter or back-light has gone out. What you can do to test this is to turn the TV on and then turn off all of the lights until the room is dark. Then shine a flashlight at an angle on the screen and see if you can see a picture. If you can the back-light and or inverter has malfunctioned. If this is the case, then I would suggest that you have a qualified TV technician fix this problem, but first ask for a estimate because the inverters and back-lights are sometimes part of the screen and is it is you might as well buy a new TV.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,
