After switching on with the remote I lost the picture, sound was ok. I checked the power supply for leaking condensators none of those. As none of the backlights was working I looked for a failed component in the common part for all inverter circuits.I found a blown SMD fuse F1 1.0A/67V on the inverter board near the connectors to the power supply. Soldered PCB type fuse on top of the SMD one. TV-worked.again.

There could be two possible failures:
1. The backlights are defective (not a common failure for a 14 months old LCD) or the backlights driver/inverter is defective.
2. Power supply failure(very common failure on LCDs) will cause the symptoms you described.

Samsung 32" LCD TV with picture problems. Only the bottom of the screen has picture.

Back - light problem. Check and replace damaged component/s at its back-light inverter board, or replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. It will be best to replace the inverter board as card basis.
To some model sets; especially LED back-lighted types; the back-light inverter circuit will be part of the main power supply board [SMPS]. In such cases, the power supply board might need replacement. To some models sets, the back-light inverter and SMPS section circuit will be integrated at its main board itself. If so; the main board should be replaced. To some models of sets, all these section circuit will be integrated at its main board. If this is the case, you have to replace the main board.

LCD TV Has Sound, Backlights Work, but No Picture

I have been having the same problem with my LG. people say there are bad capacitors on the power supply board. I don't have the know how to replace them and don't have the money to pay. I can get mine to work by blowing hot air with a hair dryer into the back of my tv through the vents over the board. Heat it up for a couple minutes and turn it off and then back on and the picture comes back. I just never turn the set off now.

What does it mean when the picture goes out?

There are so many reasons for picture to gets out. The first amoung them, is of its backlight itself. If the backlight CCFL tubes wont light up, there will be no backlight to illuminate the picture. If baclkight inverter board has damaged, backlight CCFL lamps won't light up. The most common fault with LCD TVs are backlight failure itself. The second one is of with its main video processor board. In short, main board itself. You have to check and make sure which one is faulty. You must ahve sound knoledge in electronics to proceed. OK.

Akai lct32 inch sound but picture

This failure is cause by the absence of 24 volts from the power supply to the backlight inverter board.
Defective backlight inverter board.
Defective CCFL that is inside behind the screen.
The easier way to troubleshoot it is by measuring the voltage from the power supply, if the voltage is present then the next step is to replace the backlight inverter board and lastly if the TV doesn't work; then the repair is a bit more challenging to replace the CCFL light(s).
Let me know if you require further assistance.
