The most of this TV problem is that the inverter transformer built on the main power supply is bad, to fix it, you may replace the transformer , or replace the power supply module.

Testimonial: "Hi, I replaced the power supply module and still sound but I did notice a very faint image on the screen in the dark can't make it out but something is there but any light shining on the screen and you won't notice it. Any other suggestions for this problem"

    Please check out the backlights on & dim control voltage on the connector from the main board to the power supply board. When the TV is powered up, the back lights on voltage should be 3.2V to 4.5V, the dim control voltage should be 2.8V to 3.5V; if you missed any of this two voltage, you do have a defective main board; if the voltage is there, but the backlights is not turned on, you may still have a defective power supply, or the backlights assy is bad.

SOURCE: how hard it is to replace by yourself main board Samsung LN-T4065

You need to do some more diagnosing of the problem. If you get sound and change channels take a bright flashlight and place it again the screen. Look for an image around the edge of the flashlight.
If you see an image that means the LCD controller board (TCON) is probably good.

The problem is probably one of three causes;
1) Inverter board is bad
2) CCFT (cold cathode fluorescent light) are bad.
3) Power to the inverter board is bad. You can also check the connectors.

Sounds like main board failure and or power board failure. You need to contact manufacturer and describe problem for tech support. Some of the parts in Samsung TVs have lifetime warranties. Change out of two board is about an hour job and service call is usually comped. Hope this helps. J

Another "same probelm"

My set has encountered this magical 50/50 split screen and it seems to be quite a problem since I am not the only one researching this issue. LG was of no use because of course it is just out of warranty. Any solutions on fixing this or am I out of money in buying a new plasma?

Samsung TV model UN46ES6150FXZA, had sound but no picture, use flash light can see the picture, so no back light. Should I replace the power board of it? Or is there other part to control light?

Yes replace the power board, or just replace the capacitors on the power board. If they look swollen, then they need to be replaced. Very common on Samsungs.

Hi, I have a samsung flat panel tv model UN29F4000, has sound and looks like no picture but if looked at in the dark you can see a faint image. Powersupply board changed with same results. Thanks

Looks like the back lights are not working. The older TV sets had fluorescent tubes, the newer have LED's voor back lighting. I would look there, or visit a repair shop. Or when the TV is old, start saving up for a new one.

Vizio HDTV froze and then started doing this. There is no picture other than what is shone, no sound, the buttons on the side of the TV are unresponsive, and the TV won't turn off unless I unplug it.

That looks to be a main board issue. The main board feeds the signal to the Tconn which is what looks to be the issue. Also the main board is what processes the on and off command when you hit power. Replacing the main board should solve the issue. Replacement main boards are available from

Do you need to connect cable to get a picture

You should be able to get to the setup menus of the TV and/or get some static if you have no signal on an off-air channel. No picture/no sound points to the power supply board of the TV being faulty.
