Samsung 32inch tv screen blackout

i own a 32inch samsung lcd tv, only 18months old.
i was tonight playing on my xbox360 when teh screen suddenly went black, and no picture was present.
the sound carried on fine, the tv was still on, but no picture.
so i tried to unplug and leave for 30minutes to see if it had just overheated and that didnt work when i retried it, so now i am confused as to the problem.

thank you

SOURCE: no picture on samsung lcd tv

I have the same problem. I brought a Samsung 46" in July 07 and on Jan 8, 2008, video went blue.

I called Samsung and sent out technician and they replaced the motherboard.

Two hours later, same problem occured. I called today and Electronic Company thinks I have a bad LCD panel.

SOURCE: Samsung LCD Tv

Try this:
Access menu service by press on your command, with your TV OFF:


Then you should get access to Service Menu.

The last item says: RESET

This will do a reset to the TV.

Make no harm.

WARNING: If when on service menu you feel tempted to "screw" on anything FIRST take note on ALL you change! You can compromise the TV ...

SOURCE: Samsung plasma all black screen

Black Screen come from three areas. 1- Power Supply Board 2- Inverter Board 3- Processing Board on the LCD. Since the Power Supply Board was replace, it easy to troubleshoot where the problem. lies If you cannot get the backlight, then its the inverter board. If you can use a flash light on the TV screen and can barely see the images, then the problem is indeed the inverter board. If you cannot see any images when using a flash light, then the problem comes from the LCD processing board. Let me know if you have any success. Mike

SOURCE: Samsung Plasma TV have sound but no picture


Unfortunately, what you're describing is a repair issue. You won't be able to address the problem with troubleshooting. There is a part inside the TV that needs to be replaced. If you're under warranty, this will cost you nothing. If you're not under warranty the cost will likely be a minimum of $200 parts and labor. However, be warned that the cost could be considerably higher.

SOURCE: samsung lcd tv no picture just sound

While this is not a permanent solution, we've fond it helps... We have a Samsung LCD that does not turn on when there is too much humidity in the room. This only happens in the summer when it gets really humid. We moved our dehumidifier next to it, let it run for around 15 minutes and the TV turned on again, no problem. Lately, it's been raining alot so it's very humid. We've gotten into the habit of leaving our dehumidifier on through the night on low and we've had not issues turning on the tv since then. This is a hastle but it's either that or buying a new tv.

Lines down screen

We have a Samsung LE32A457, whilst we were watching T.V tonight the top halve of the screen suddenly appeared with green lines halfway down the screen and that half of the picture was unwatchable, T.V is 2 years old. We have removed all scart leads but this did not help and the problem still exists, when shutting down a white horizontal line across the centre of the screen appears from this line upwards the picture is faulty. Any help or advice would be grateful.

This should be repairable. It may be the LVDS Cable or the Main board problem. The only other problem is the T-Con Board.
