That is not the backlights inverter problem, inverter is responsible for driving the CCFL to produce backlights for light source.
The T-CON board, the LCD panel, the main board are responsible for producing pictures.
Can you see the pictures beind the lines on the screen, or it is jsut all lines, and how about the on screen menu, does it look normal? I am just trying to figure out what you are seeing.

Learn about bad caps:
Capacitors kit: he can make you a set of caps.
Or, just make sure to use caps with low ESR, 105c, high ripple current and long life rating such as PANASONIC FM or FC series.
Please post back what you find.
Please leave rating if it helps.

    Hey, thanks again for the help. I barely see any picture in the back. Just the lines. What do you think I need to buy or if its even worth it.

    This is tough troubleshooting, without looking at all the signals with scope per repair manual, I would have to guess that it can be T-CON board or worst case will be the LCD panel. But we need to check all the signals and DC voltages on the T-CON board first.

    By the way, this is the exact model I worked on Saturday that had bad caps in the power supply, it is only 2 years old! I will have to keep an eye on this TV, I have a feeling there will be more problems with this TV! LN32A330/

    You did not see any caps with domed tops?
    This must be low end SAMSUNG since it does not even use SAMSUNG LCD panel, it uses the cheaply made CHE MEI LCD panel.

    Yea, im not sure. Do you want me to take pics of how my TV looks? If so i can take them tommorrow. How much do you think it would cost to fix?

    Sure, shop rate can be $150 and up plus parts, which will make it more than 50% of a new 32" TV today. Parts selling on EBAY are worth a lot of money.
    You can send the pictures to me at
