It can be the 24vdc power supply is bad due to bad caps with domed tops, or bad backlights inverter board, check for 24vdc first, it can also be dead T-CON board, please read below to help you narrowing down the cause of the problem.
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:

Please could you advise or help me obtain a full service manual for Samsung LCD 37" TV model no:LE37M87BDX/XEU


If you let us know what's wrong with the TV, we may have a solution, rather than have you taking stabs in the dark about what's wrong.
I mean if it's not turning on, whining, or turns off 3 seconds after being turned on, or just clicks if you try to turn it on, or there is sound but no picture...chances are we already have the solution.
Tell us what's wrong with it, and we'll see what we can do!

Samsung hl-s6186 screen flickers and sometimes goes green


The humming will usally come from the color wheel(one of the only moving parts), which is part of the light engine. If the tv is starting to get a green picture that is a sign that the light engine is on it's way out.

No Picture No Sound


I think you have a short somewhere inyour set most likely the horizontal output transistor which may have shorted by the high voltage transformer going bad. The faint ticking sound that you hear is the power supply trying to start but the shorted load won't let it. Stargazer
