SAMSUNG LNT3232H LCD TV FLICKERING BACKLIGHT

I have had this TV for little over a year and what seems like the day the warranty expired I began having problems with the backlight. What happens is the screen starts to flicker slightly and eventually goes to black
(no backlight, but still audio), the the set then shuts down and powers up by itself and works with no problems until the next occurrence. It is intermittent, but happens sometimes as often as every 15 minutes.
I have be told it could be the backlight, inverter, or SMPS ; any ideas and if parts are available?

    I have a 46" SAMSUNG 650 LCD TV. After about three months the backlight flickers for a few seconds and then goes out completely. Luckily, I'm still under warranty. You should still contact Samsung customer service. I'm sure something has to be replaced/fixed.

I have a ln-s4092d that had the same problem after a little more than a year of service. Replacing the main board seemed to fix the problem. But about a year later, the same problem has reappeared. I'm getting ready to replace the main board once again, but I don't really want to do this on an annual basis/

A great hobby capacitor-rolling option to do ?who should know ? if they look bulged or have leaked on some places, but if there where leaking capacitors there can be damaged print circuit lines on some places on the circuit boards to find if it is find by little brown spots under capacitors.

Beware of people watch out for those who want to empty the rack.

I have a Vizio 37" HDTV that recently started losing the picture. The sound has been on continually but the picture now flashes steadily but mostly remains black. It went out one day, came back afte


it sounds like a backlight issue. It could be as simple as a few bad caacitors. If you already replaced the set and you just want $$$ toss it on your local Craigslist as a parts/repair set. There's always TV shop owner and parts scavangers that will buy the set as is. Price wise, if the set is in good condition and come with remote, and pedestal, I would ask $60 as is but you may get more

The flickering is most likely due to a faulty fluorescent backlight. Once the bulb heats up the flickering usually goes away. Some bulbs are easier to replace than others so I would contact your local TV repair shop.

Screen has started to flicker constantly. tv is 9 months old. When switched off flickering stops for about 5-10 minutes and then starts again


I had the same issue occur on my ln55c650 and they had to replace the power supply pc-board. Seems some issue with power module in the TV rather than the side panels. Luckily for me, TV was still in warranty.

After about 5 years the Samsung LCD televisions backlight fails which prevents the TV from coming on and the powerlight just flickers the backlight can be changed but it is often alot easier and cheaper to buy a new Television

Your not alone with this problem.
I had to fix mine. The warranty is less than impressive.
The trouble is going to be the Power Supply/Backlight Inverter board.
This is the picture of yours:

Fixing the board like I did seem to be the only option. If you need info on fixing it, let me know.
