If it is a LCD TV, and there is a faint picture, it is probably the backlight or inverter board (probably the latter). This is a common problem (especially with PC monitors).
Do an internet search for your model and inverter, you may be able to replace it.
Make SURE you REMOVE the power lead before opening the set !!!!

My 32D40U would turn on for 5-10 seconds (Please Wait would appear) and the screen would go black. Sound Normal. It would also sometimes do this after running 5-10 minutes. I read somewhere that the inverter board would come loose and lose proper ground. I took the set apart, removed the board, and cleaned up the grounding points. I reassembled using some copper paste on the ground points and LockTite on the screws. I used some contact cleaner on all the connectors going to the board. I noticed two cables that are covered with copper shield tape where too tight at their connectors and repositioned the tape to give them some slack. The problem hasn't occurred since the fix.

I had one that had a black screen and fixed the problem by repairing the inverter. When I opened the unit I looked at the capacitors on the inverter board and found them swollen. I looked at the bottom of the board and found that the fuse had opened up. The caps were a cheap quality low temp variety 150uF at 25V I replaced them with 330uF 25 volt 105C caps. I then replaced the 2.5A surface mount fuse with an axial 2.5A pico fuse and the TV worked beautifully.
