SOURCE: screen is black but there is sound

It is possible that the backplane lamps and or the ballast supply is in failure. It is also possible that the main power supply is having a fault condition, or there is some other area that is shorting and causing part of the power supply to go in to protect mode.

The set should be checked out by a service tech who knows the set, and has the necessary resources to service it.

Veritcal lines - different size - distorted

Main digital board has the fault. As set is new one, it must be under warranty period. Get this set repaired by the authorised service center before the warranty period expires. Otherwise you might have ot spend for the cost of the board + service charge. The board can't be repaired. It must be replaced as card basis.

I have a Samsung LNT4066F. Multicolor lines then normal.

Had this problem occcured after opening of the set or by itself. If so please checck on the shielded connections of the power board. Please make sure your power outlet is working fine and there is full voltage on the input to the power the set carefully by unscrewing the rear panels. Look out for any loose/dry solder joints inthe power board.Use a good low wattage soldring iron to solder suspected joints.Keep the power off and be careful to see that you do not attempt to touch the main capacitors which could have high voltage stored. Next you need to check the drive to the panels, check from the transformers for loose / dry connections, if so resolder. once you have finished, close up the panel and test. If htis wont solve, test the voltages in the power and the drives, the fault appears to be some dry points so look carefully with patience. I hope this advice helps you out. Good day

Multicolor vertical lines on one third of screen?

Unfortunately TV's aren't built to last anymore...once LED sets came out the life of them dropped in half over what they were 10 yrs ago.. 2.5 yrs isn't that far below average anymore. .There is a good chance you have Tcon board issues, you can try the old trick of cooking it in your oven and see if that helps since it started out as intermittent or would work for awhile and got worse but only about 20% at best of the time that works, you can find instructions on how to do it on youtube if you want to try, it won't hurt anything but chances are it won't fix step is buy a tcon board but there are other things that could cause it , tcon would be where I would start

Rainbow line will come across screen and then goes blank. This is an intermittent problem. Normally if I turn it off and back on, it works. Now it does not.

try resoldering the vertical output IC, the IC runs at a hot temperature and this can cause the Pins to have cracked solder.

Phone screen goes blank to a grey color (externallY) .

same problem, broke my screen, ordered a new screen off ebay and replaced it. now it works fine most of the time but sometimes external display freezes. sometimes goes black, sometimes goes multicolor pixelated (full screen, in blocks, or lines) when this happens sometimes touchpad still works, others not. removing battery usualy temporarily fixes.
