It sounds like the closed caption text mode has been turned on. Use you CC button on the remote and make sure the closed caption mode is in the off position.

Solution that worked for me:
Beware: Although the process should be safe, it technically voids your warranty.
Enter the service menu:
1 - turn of tv with remote
2 - press and release in the following order on the remote: Info, Menu, Mute. Make sure remote is pointing at the tv
3 - turn on the tv from the remote
4 - you will see the service menu. using the down arrow on the remote select the Reset option. Using the right arrow button at this point will do a hard reset.
5 - Wait a few seconds, turn TV on
6 - you will have to rescan analogue and digital channel but it should be working now.

If the screen is black and you have sound then lightly press and shine a strong flashlight against the screen. If you see an image around the edge of the flashlight, an image is being 'displayed'. The problem is probably in the Inverter/CCFT or the power going to the Inverter.

Generally in these cases that means it's a faulty cable or loose connection.
On LCD's if the screen dies or anything internally for that matter, the screen would stay black. Grey means a signal is coming through, but it's being able to receive it.
Check your cables for any loose connections or try alternate cables going to your tv set.
Hope that helps. If you need anymore help let me know :)
