Honestly, this does not have any real affect on the future performance or operation of the TV so it may not be worth investing in unless you are very bothered by it.
The backlight is something that is not easily repaired by a novice and extremely expensive to repair in general(more or equal to the cost of a new TV).
Good news is that these manuals are written by people who don't have an exact concept of how the words are interpretted. For example, the manual says "the backlight is failing" which means the backlight should be replaced. I am sure it was meant to say "the backlight components are failing" which may mean only a board or small compenent that affects the backlight needs replacing. This may be much cheaper.

MY Samsung LN-T4661F 46 Inch 1080p LCD HDTV is having several issues. For the last year or so, upon initial turn-on, it takes several minutes for the TV to turn on (about 7 or 8 beeps). When it does turn...


Taking several minutes to turn on problem is usually due to bad/unstable DC from the power supply, which can create a lot of strange symptoms. That willbe the first palce to look.
Please read mu guides for details and post back what you find on the power supply section first. We need to fix the delayed turn on problemfirst before trying to fix other symptoms.

My 32 inch Vizio TV will turn on but within about 5 - 10 minutes, the screen goes to nothign but vertical lines. The T V makes a very high pithced noise and ten turns it self off.


The high pitch sound may be coming from the power supply module or from the backlight inverter boards.

You may have dying 24vdc power supply or backlight inverter board, check the voltages first.

Not really that tough. Sounds as though the backlight is shutting down, either from a power supply failure, or a failure of the backlight circuit itself. You can verify this by holding a flashlight to the screen in the area where the menu usually appears to see if it displayed on the LCD panel with no backlight. If you can faintly see the menu displayed, your backlight has shut down and the most likely cause is the backlight inverter board, followed by the power supply and the backlights themselves which are part of the LCD panel. If you found this information answered your questions, please be sure to rate it. Thanks!

Delay to see the picture


Your power supply is going south, I have an old sony with the same problem. The voltage level drops and does not have enough 'kick' to start. It will work better when it is warm. The module will need to be replaced.
