It's simply gone blank... or into a coma perhaps.

I've had my screen for about 4 months with no problems, but today it just went blank, flipped between the digital/analog boot up in left hand corner, went to sleep and switched itself off. Now I can't turn it on again, all it does is the above for about 5 secs and turns itself off again. Help! Don't want to have to go through warranty annoyingness... thanks

    Odd, left it for a few hours, hooked it back up for fifth time and voila! Cheers anyway.

My 917P has had similar problems recently. Sometimes cycling the power switch 5x (pausing between each try) brings it back to life. As screen sometimes flickers, when the problem occurs, thought it might be the backlight. However mine is clearly due to the power supply not supplying proper power to reliably get the backlight going. As it is an external power supply, Samsung may well cover a replacement. Some Samsung LCDs, such as 971P, have a 3yr warranty.

Hi Sharon,

I have the same exact TV and the same exact problem....except today the screen went black and I no longer get a picture from any source. I've had the TV for exactly 13 months. IF you've had your TV for less time, I'd return it.
