    In the translation of the lastposted solution. I think you needed a dimension. I do not know what a"panny" is. So to the specification list on page45 on the manuel
    max. reso; 1280X800
    dimensions 15.2wX13.5hX5.2d"
    15.4"TFT LCD panel size

It sounds like it could be a problem with the backlight if your lcd has one. The screen makes the picture but a little light in the back produces the light. Its not a problem with the computer/board or the powersupply because it all still works. If the screen is just blank, it is probably the backlight or the connection of the screen to the board and power. Shouldnt be too expensive to fix...

Hi,

It may be as Jaime867 has proposed, either a back light/inverter issue.

There is possibly a way to verify if the backlight and/or the inverter is faulty. Operate the unit even with no display. On your remote or on the control panel, press on the volume control. With the use of a strong flashlight, pls see if you can see some semblance of the volume level (where it normally shows). You may have to angle the flashlight a bit. If the volume level indicator could be seen (albeit very dark), then you have justm confirmed the fault.

Hope that this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Unfortunately with this type of television you will have to get it repaired. Being it is under a year old you may be covered by a warranty. Call the customer service number in the owners manual and they should replace it for you for free or send you a gift card for the value of the television.

Good luck to you.

Sure..those are usually around 400 bucks, plus shipping of around 125.00 so figure around 525.00 all told, assuming that nothing else is found when it gets to the repair center..no warranty, I assume, right? do you need a connection to a repair center for that unit?

Okay, based on memory (this is my third Panny), I got into my service menu. But where are the h-width and v-width options? All I need is to up the h-width by a bit. This was easy on the last Panny I owned. There has to be a way this can be done, doesn't there?

This type of failure could be related to a back light inverter failure or power supply. If your LCD is less then a year old, i would suggest to contact the manufacturers to get it fixed under warranty since this might not be a DIY repair.

Posted on Oct 20, 2008

  • Jaime Hernandez Oct 20, 2008

    If you repair yourself still worth it because the back light inverter board and the power supply are one assembly and you can find it by clicking here.

  • Jaime Hernandez Oct 20, 2008

    This TV does not have a flyback transformer and you will not feel any hairs standing up when you get close to the screen.

    Check the link I've provided on a previous post to see the part you need to fix your LCD.

You can try a hard reset: Unplug TV from AC mains and remove all cables from TV. Wait about 30 minutes and replug to AC power and redo the cabling. Switch on the TV and see if it works..


Good luck..

already solved it. thanks. i couldn't see the xbox settings blade because of the blank screen so switched my component cable to the tv setting instead of the hdtv setting, then i could see the dashboard in non-hd and switched the resolution to 720p while simultaneously switching the component cable back to the hdtv setting. that worked.

When i switch my samsung lcd tv model le32r87bd it starts alright but after about 2 seconds the picture goes and the screen turns black i can still hear the sound and the remote seems to still work but no...


Sounds like you need an inverter board which is the power supply for the screen lights. I tried to look up the part but samsung dosen't have a service diagram posted for it yet. Since it is so new you may want to find a samsung authorized service center because if the part is not available yet Samsung will have to solve the problem.

There is a problem with the AV2 input. Since this is a new set, return it for repair or exchange. DO NOT open it up as that would void the warranty.
