Try going outside if it is daytime and get the sunlight to shine through on the LCD panel. You should be able to see the faint display.

The only thing left is the inverter board located just below the screen and is a common issue with a black screen, the inverter board drives the backlight behind the display.

I'm using a Samsung T240HDTV. The screen goes to very dark frequently so that I can hardly see the image, after I turn it on. I guess may be something wrong with the backlight. Can somebody help me out...

The problem is probably not with the backlight, rather the inverter that powers the backlight. If you open the back of the lcd so that you can see the circuit board you might see several bulging, or blown capacitors. This is a common problem with lcds. If you replace the capacitors the problem should go away.

Black screen although TV is turned on


Check the backlight setting in the menu, if its at 5 and up but you still have a picture then i'm afraid your backlight is faulty and you will need to have the panel replaced, seeing that you only got the TV 2 days ago I suggest you take it back.

Screen wont turn on but can navigate blindly through the phone??

It sounds like the backlight has died. Screens with replacement backlights are around $100-200. Is this a 3G? If so take it to Apple to get a replacement, they are still under warranty.

Backlight off and can't get it on again.

Either clean the screen or navigate the iPod by heart. Try pressing any button and it should come on

Because your screen is broken and that can only be fixed if you have it replaced.
