Question about Samsung LE-46A566 46 in. LCD TV
When watching, the backlight simply switched off. Sound was still on, and also the LCD was working (just hard to see without backlight). - I switched the TV off and on again, the backlight was working again for 10sec, then it switched off again. - I switched the TV off and on again, the backlight was working again for 3sec, then it switched off again. Now the abcklight remains off. I checked the inside of the TV, but could not find anything which looks broken etc. Does anyone have an advice reg. what exactly is broken? Many thanks in advance!

Most likely you will need to get a diagnoses done on the set. It could be a faulty 24vdc circuit (power supply capacitors), defective inverter, or a failing CCFL backlamp.

use the menu setup and tell it how u want it to be configured and make sure tv speakers are on if u are using the tv, if not use the computer settings on the menu, u probaly already have found this out, by looking fully at the onscreen menu.

Check with Samsung, this model should still be under the 3 year warranty. You are having a problem with the backlight power supply. You can look on the back of the unit for the manuf. date, if its less than 3 years then go to www.samsung.com and process the online service request form.
I hope this helps,if so please rate our solution.

Testimonial: "Your suggestion sounds about right to me, though I'm no expert. I do have experience with bad caps in other equipment and am comfortable around circuit boards and soldering, etc., so I'll have a go at it. Might these be low-esr caps? Once again, thank you."
