    Hi mgflores84,

    I got your other mesage but can't find it for some reason.
    Did you get the Tv working?
    If not let me know and we will go to a chat and start checking voltages, I really think you must have got a bad board. We can check it though.

    If you have a multimeter we will need it, if not buy a cheap one from Radio Shack or Walmart, don't worry if youv'e never used one , we will walk you through.

    Let me know

How do you fix a Samsung 55" Television with no picture but good sound?

The symptoms you described would indicate the backlights are not working.

The 2 main reasons are the backlight inverter board has gone or the backlights have blown!

Since you have replaced the inverter board with a new working one then this would point towards the LED backlights.

Got hit in lower rt corner. Started turning black and after 2 hrs completely black. Still have sound. Is it fixable?

Of course, anything is fixable. But on a large screen set such as yours the cost of repair is prohibitive. Better off getting a new set with warranty for the same or less dinero since prices have really come down.
Don't know if Samsung is still making plasma sets. I know that Panasonic dropped out and LG and Samsung were supposed to do so also- shame because plasma sets have always had better pictures than other sets. But hey were not selling as well and the almighty dollar has once again prevailed. .........

Samsung lcd tv has sound but no picture

Do you have back lighting. Shine a light on the screen. If you can barely see a picture the set has no backlight but video is good. This would rule out the main board. Not shure if this set is LED backlight or flouresent tube back light. If flouresent tube check for voltages to inverter board. 24v or 15v. They are marked on the board. If voltages are there likely inverter board. or could be power brd. Check pricing on new tv.

Tv turns on for a few seconds then goes dark but still have audio. Picture is barely visible if you stare at and concentrate

Most likely your backlight inverter is defective. On a set this big, the inverters should be seperate boards. It could also be leaky caps in the power supply, or a defective mainboard that isn't holding the "BL ON" signal. The tv is repairable but most repair shops will want to gouge you on price.

46" LCD Samsung TV Model# LN-S4692D I have no picture

The back light inverter board may have gone out or it is not getting the 24vdc from the power supply module. Start checking for voltage feeding the inverter board.

Sound but no picture

It is most likely the inverter, here is a trick to check it. Turn the tv on a channel where you have audio(sound)
Take a flashlight or a lamp with a bare buld and shine it on the screen. Look very closely at the screen, if you see a video image your inverter is bad.
Let me know and I can instruct you on replacement.
