Yes, more likely to be the either the power supply failure due to bad caps or just failed components, or the backlight inverter boards, but try this first:
First, look at the screen in darkened room to see if you can see any slight glow from the screen, if it does, then the problem can be the T-CON (not getting the 12vdc) or the main logic board not feeding the signals to the T-CON board.
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 (leaking/bulging top, high ESR) 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 is some troubleshooting you will have to do to find out the causes of the problem you are having.

If you are going to DIY and have proper tools, electronics knowledge, and know safety precaution then please read on:

How to fix Samsung HL72A650C1FXZA DLP TV with no sound, no picture, bright screen with lamp light flashing?


Check the bulb ballast board. It's the board that the wires from the bulb connect to. That is most likely causing the Sounds like the main board is the culprit for most of the problem. The picture problem can be the color wheel not turning. The lenses in front of the bulb should be taken out and cleaned too.

Fixing smart tv


I would consider getting a quote for repair. Sometimes it is something simple, other times it is more expensive to fix rather than buy a new one. I say get a quote, because in the long run a qualified repair shop can figure out what what needs to be replaced, rather than spending money on parts and hoping you found the broken component. If you can get your hands on a model that has a cracked screen, for example, it may be worth it to try to swap parts.

The equivalent Samsung model today costs $380.

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.

Samsung TV model un40eh53000fxza have sound but no picture


It all depends on the connections and cable.
If you are using a HDMI cable and have sound but no picture, then your TV probably needs to be fix.
if you are using a RCA cable or component cable, make sure that you have the correct TV input.
you don't specify what type of TV you have, but if I were you, I'll check the connections first.

Don't bother with DELL if out of warranty, they can't fix it. Have the same model and same problem
probably It is a bad inverter board, in my case one of the 16 transformers is burnt out on the inverter board. still trying to find a replacement component. if not replacing the board is the only option or getting the inverter board repaired.

by the way, this TV has a Samsung panel: model LTA320W2-L03. so it needs parts for a Samsong not a DELL.
DELL does not manufacture or fix them becuase they don't make them
