Are you able to see the picture in a dark room ? does it appear bright enough then ? if so the lights behind your screen have dimmed or gone out completely. this may just be the power supply for the lights or your lcd panel may need to be replaced

Hi, I have a samsung flat panel tv model UN29F4000, has sound and looks like no picture but if looked at in the dark you can see a faint image. Powersupply board changed with same results. Thanks


Looks like the back lights are not working. The older TV sets had fluorescent tubes, the newer have LED's voor back lighting. I would look there, or visit a repair shop. Or when the TV is old, start saving up for a new one.

I have sound but no picture


Do the flash light test----with set on in a very dark room with the light directed at the screen do you see a faint image or not?

Black screen


If its LCD get the room very very dark and turn on--with a flashlight near the screen look closely at the screen to see if you see a very faint image of the picture or not---Most LCD flatscreen's (not Plasma) use what is called a back light to light the screen--light source.

If a faint picture can be seen that way the light is not on.

No picture


Look with the set on in a very, very dark room and use a flashlight to light the screen.

If you see a very faint image of the picture the back light in the set is not on or bad---most LCD sets use a back light to provide the source for brightness on the screen.

The lights are on, but picture won't come on.


A suggestion: if you have sound look at the screen with set on in a dark room with a flashlight---do you see a very faint image or not?

If no sound or brightness but indicator lights are on suspect another issue--possible power supply board is bad.

Picture for about 30 seconds but has sound. TW-5592W82003990


I would first take a look at the screen with set on in a very dark room with a flashlight---do you see a very faint image or picture? That would indicate a back light issue-----Good luck getting a board, I hear the company is again out of business.

Hi My screen is really dark when inside night pictures. I have tried to increase brightness.But can't adjust. Can you help plse ?


The set may have an ambient light detector - if so then the set up options will allow you to vary the screen brightness - a simple check to find out if this could be the problem would be to display an image during the day then if possible close the blinda and make the room dark - alternatviley do the same at night then switch the room lights on and off and see if the brightness changes.

This is called a dark shading error. All the LCD consumer sets have some visible degree of this effect. Some will be a little less or more than others even from the same batch in the assembly run. This has to do with the optical design quality of how the back-plane lamps illuminate the screen. The design and assembly tollerance of this area is very critical.

Normally, LCD screens don't show their best picture in a darkened room. The very black regions of the picture content may look a little washed out. LCD screens are best watched in a room that is lit, but not very bright. You have to consider that there is a powerful set of lights behind the polarized panel of the LCD display, and there will always be some breakthrough of light.

If you want a TV that is more like a CRT in its characteristics a Plasma would have been a good choice. The trade-off with the Plasma is that it does not have the picture sharpness of the LCD. A Plasma set is best watched in a darkened room.

If you have an LCD computer monitor, take a look at it in a dark room with a black screen. You will most likely see the dark shading errors. Only the very expensive production studio type LCD monitors have less of this error than the consumer sets, and they are not absolutely perfect.
