    Yes, after 14 months, just outside manufactures warranty, my Samsung 42 in. LCD picture went out. I did buy the extended warranty but they are taking a long time to fix the problem, which is a bad LCD panel. Samsung would not back this product and BrandsMart would not help us either. You would thing something you paid over $1200 would not have a problem like this. Even after complaining to Samsung and Brandsmart they would not help. It was now my problem and I would have to wait for the warranty company to order the part and then wait to have it installed and hopefully that would be the only thing wrong with this TV. I am not pleased and would really research Samsung products in the future before buying one.

    I have the same problem, sometimes it work, sometimes it doesn't, mine is 52", just over a year. I called Samsung 2 months ago, they said they would get back to me and never get back. I called today again, they said just out of warranty, I can't see the Olympic opening today. I would never buy Samsung product again and would not recommend any one to buy their product.

    I have a 32 inch Samsung LCD tv. I was watching tv and the picture just went completely black. Almost 2 yrs old now so its out of warranty. Does anybody know how much its going to cost to fix? I cant believe I spent over 1200 dollars on this product, only to be trying to fix it entirely to soon! All this new technology is starting to become a headache because it all malfunctions. Why cant the manufacturers build a solid product that will last after you buy it!

    6 month after I bought a lousy 32" samsung Tv, started acting up.Blurry picture, lines across, all kinds rainbow colors. Tech came several times changed parts, almost he changed all parts every time he came in. never worked. Finally, they replaced me with another one. After 22 month, the tv has no picture only sound. I have had two tvs. both analog both 17 yrs old and they still running good.

    I have also the same problem sound no picture on a plasma. It seems I have found hundreds of people online with the same problem. My tv is 23 months old , Think you get a longer life after paying $1500. Some say unplug it for 24 hour and some say it happends when its humid.

    Same problem, my 42" LN-S4051D is 2.5 years old. I have sound, but no picture. Samsung tech support told me "You need to find a qualified repair center". Unfortunately, there are none in my area. Is it possible to fix this myself?

While this is not a permanent solution, we've fond it helps... We have a Samsung LCD that does not turn on when there is too much humidity in the room. This only happens in the summer when it gets really humid. We moved our dehumidifier next to it, let it run for around 15 minutes and the TV turned on again, no problem. Lately, it's been raining alot so it's very humid. We've gotten into the habit of leaving our dehumidifier on through the night on low and we've had not issues turning on the tv since then. This is a hastle but it's either that or buying a new tv.

I'm an authorized service provider for Samsung and Vizio. Your problem sounds like the mainboard. You can find usually on ebay by searching for your tv model and then mainboard.

Hope it works out for you.
