Question about Samsung LE40R73BD 40 in. HD-Ready LCD Television
It can be due to bad 24vdc power supply for the backlight inverter board or bad backlight inverter board, but we need to find out if the backlight is working at all since bad T-CON board can also cause the blank screen.
First, look at the screen in darkened room to see if you can see any slight glow from the screen, if not, next place to check will be the power supply module, make sure it has 24vdc which is required by the backlight inverter to work, the reason for not having 24vdc can be from bad DC filter caps or short circuits in the inverter board which will cause the 24vdc supply to go into shutdown mode, so you may have to disconnect the power cable that feed the inverter board to see if the 24vdc will work without the inverter board hookup, you will need to apply about 3~4 amp of load to the 24vdc to make sure it can handle that. There are fuses on the backlight inverter boards also. So there are some troubleshoot you will have to do to find out the causes of the problem you are having.
