Samsung LN-T4665F 46" HDTV Screen is BLACK - NO PICTURE

I bought a Samsung LN-T4665F 46" LCD HDTV in June, 2007 from Best Buy. Within 9 months I started having problems with it. The screen would remain black when I turned it on. The blue light on the bottom of the set would come on, so I know it was getting power.

After reviewing several forums on the internet for similar problems, I found one temporary solution was to turn the set on and off about a dozen or so times and the picture "might" stay on..........Well, I tried this. Sometimes it worked and sometimes it didn't.

Fortunately, I purchased the 4-year warranty for $349.99 when I bought the TV in 2007. (I don't normally do this. However, the cost of the TV then was over $2,800, before taxes.) So, I called Best Buy to request service. It was like pulling teeth!

However, to make a long story short, it's taken almost a year and no less than three (3) service calls to my home by a service technician. His last visit was on 8/1/2009, when he finally replaced the LCD panel/screen, the main power supply board, and the main circuit board in the TV. The cost of the labor and parts was well over $3,000. No kidding! The technician sent me an email showing the cost breakdown. Fortunately it didn't cost me a dime because of the warranty. The TV worked OK for several weeks, but then the same old symptoms started occurring again a couple of weeks ago.

I then called Best Buy Service (The Geek Squad) on 9/22/2009 again and demanded a new HDTV. They told me they would seek management approval for me to acquire a new TV and would get a confirmation number to me within 3-5 business days. I'm supposed to be able to take this issue back to the Best Buy store, give them the confirmation number and get a new, comparable TV.

I'm now waiting for that confirmation number from The Geek Squad. If I don't hear from them by mid next week, I'll call them back..........

It's been a long two (2) frustrating years with this Samsung TV, Best Buy, and their Geek Squad!

I'll follow up with more info in the days ahead...............

Verticle lines? There is a way to troubleshoot and find the problem but without proper equipment (safety equipment) you could damage the display permanently or even worse, yourself!
I work at a company that repairs displays (LCD, Plasma, OLED) and 86.784% of the time (I just ran my month to date metrics for June '12) it's a tab. Majority is due to the the tab bond failing. This cannot be fixed in the field (or at home) since the tear-down is complex to get to the tab and bonding equipment and ACF (type of bonding material is VERY expensive.
Best thing for you would be contact the Mfr C/S and ask for a repair, if out of warranty ask for their authorized repair center contact info.
Good luck!

Samsung LN-T4665F when powered on picture is ok for 4 secs or less then screen goes black. Sound ok. I think the video is there just no back-light. Following some online advice I replaced the power-supply...

You more likely to need to backlight inverter boards, thpower supply should have 24vdc for the backlight inverter board, the 24vdc power supply get the trun on command from the controller board, that is what should have been checked first. So look for 24v or measure it directly on the inverter board connector pin. The invereter board also has a couple surface mounted fusesYou can get the inverter board here but make sure to match the number:

LN-T4665F no picture after 2 seconds, shadows and audio remain

Just so you know, the Tcon board which feeds the panel is way cheaper than a panel, sometimes samsung is out of stock and wants to sell you the panel (over $600) with the Tcon on it. you have either a bad signal board or bad Tcon board, my money is on the Tcon, be very careful with the ribbon cables to the Tcon when installing.
