The most likely thing is that your screens backlight or inverter has gone faulty.
When you turn it on, you may be able to see a very very dark image of something (best seen by activating the TV menu). On some screens the picture is still far too dark to be visible though.
With this kind of fault, its down to fitting a new inverter, and if that doesn't cure it, then fitting a new backlight bulb (or bulbs) will sort it out, but these are not jobs that can be done without some expertise at them.
Most TV inverters are large circuit boards inside, and take about 20-30 minutes to change as the whole TV has to be dismantled, but the backlight bulbs are much more complicated (and extremely fragile too).
Unfortunately, there's not much else that can be done except trying changing those 2 parts. Although its possible for the screen cable inside to become disconnected and lose your picture, that results in the screen lighting up brightly (usually pure white if the cable comes off completely).

No display or picture. has sound.


try resetting to factory default through the menus available from the remote control. The option should be in the general or settings menus. This may clear the fault. Check your antenna/aeria is working and correctly connected. If this produces no remedy it is possible that the sound output of your televisions motherboard has developed a fault or there may be an issue with the speakers or their connections to the motherboard.

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.

Sounds like either a bad LCD or a loose connection to the LCD. Very risky and time consuming to try to fix aat home. Diagnostics and service by a Nikon Authorized Service Center is advised.

HAS SOUND BUT NO PICTURE


okay the reason that the its turning off could be the fan isnt spining fast enoug hold your hand at the back of the tv to feel where the exhaust air if isnt good enough to help cool off the bulb then the fan may need to be replaced also the balast could be going bad and last check the power supply that feeds the balast make sure its a constant dc voltage

Samsung has produced some defective phones.  I have had the same problem before. If your warentee is still active, you can bring your GLYDE into a VZW store and they will give you a new one for free. they will also transfer your contacts.
