It is most likely the inverter, here is a trick to test it. If the tv has sound take a flashlight or a lamp with a bare bulb and place it very close to the screen, look very closely at the screen, if you see a video image you have a bad inverter. Let me know if I can help with replacement.

Hitachi lcd 26 l26d103 lcd tv has sound, but flashing white screen no picture. on both dvd and tv

This problem is due to a inverter board, one or two capacitors on the inverter are going bad, look for caps that are puffy on their tops as they all should be flat, also check the T-Con board for faulty conditions as well, when this board goes bad it causes unusual problems.

PLTV 26 LCD TV sound-no picture

I would suggest to check the 24 volts from the power supply to the backlight inverter board. If the voltgage is missing or lower then 20 volts, the power supply is defective. If the voltage is correct, you might have a defective light inside the TV behind the screen since you've replaced the backlight inverter board; you now the failure is not there. The lights are connected to the backlight inverter board.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
