I had this problem on my 42" Philips. Just got it yesterday and worked fine on the tv stand. As soon as I mounted the TV to the wall via wall mount system, I had the exact same issue you did. Figured it out today.

The wall mount was putting pressure against the center of the back of the tv (tv set had a slightly rounded back plate, and the mount was a flat plate). As soon as I put spacers (part of the wall mount hardware set) between the wall mount braket and the tv so there was no contact except at the mounting holes, the tv worked fine.

My theory is the pressure pushed the tv back plate against some board components which caused them to overheat (no air flow); or put pressure on internal connectors. I dont know.

Hope this helps, may not apply to your situation.

This problem is caused by one of thee problems.
1) The inverter board(s) is bad.
2) Power to the inverter board(s) is off.
3) The CCFT(cold cathode fluoresent light) is bad.

Since the picture flashes for a second you may also check for loose connections for the above items.
Here is a simple test you may also try. With the TV on take a bright flashlight and press it against the screen. Look for an image around the edge of the flashlight. This will verify that an image is being sent to the screen.

Rca tv/dvd combo L32HD32D powers on and for 2 seconds shows, Please Wait, on the screen then goes black. What do i do?


After the screen goes black, do you still have sound or you have none but a blank screen? If you have no picture and sound does the power LED in front of the tv indicate that the set is on, or does it go into standby? Please provide this info so that I can help you with your problem.

Picture shuts off


Is there a dark patch when you see the picture, easiest way to check is on the tv tuner with no cable attached, this way you have a grey static screen, if there is a darkness across the screen when it lights for that breif moment, then it may have a broken backlight tube. Had the same problem with my 32" LG.

Picture goes off after a while


Call 1-800-Samsung to set up a warranty service call. They will repair it in your home if they send a Samsung Field Engineer. You probably have a bad Main bd.

No video on LCD 32' insignia


If you have audio and no picture shine a flashlight across the screen and see if you can see a very faint picture on the screen.
If so the backlight drivers need to be replaced... A shop job unless you want to risk breaking the screen - and not terribly expensive.
