Question about Samsung Televison & Video
Check input or source if ok check picture settings
Your main board is faulty. I've done several of these but haven't been able to figure out which component is actually bad these yet. I've simply had to replace the board itself, and it fixes it every time. One thing you can do to get your backlights to come on (and so you know I'm not Jive'n you) Is unplug the three wire bundle that spans from power supply to main board. This will usually make the backlights fire up. I even had one that after I left it that way for a minute (with the backlight on) it suddenly started working again! But this was short lived. :-(
One time I even tried recapping the entire main to see it that would fix it. It did not. I think it might be something to do with the small chip labeled SL37HA37. It's a 16 legged bastard near the 3-wire plug I told you to pull. It's that or possibly the bigger IC near it that has a heat sink on it. The ball grid array solder joints may be faulty. Just guesses, if any smart guys out there figure this one out, be sure to tell the rest of us please!

Hi, I just read what you have posted on my LCD TV troubleshooting guide, it does not sound like bad T-CON board because you do not get the sound, you disconnected the main T-CON connector from the main board and get the glowing screen but you still do not hae sound.
In the LCD TV, you can discoonect the backlights inverter board power cables (cables from power supply to the backlights inverter board), and the T-CON board cables from the the main board to the T-CON, you should still get the sound since there are no feedback singals from the T-CON or from the backlights inverter boards to tell the main board that they are bad or not.
If you are 100% sure that you do not have sound on all the input modes then I would suspect the main board problem.
At least the backlights ineverter is good.
Do you get the 12v at the T-CON board surface mounted fuse?

Testimonial: "Very helpful. Gave me some useful troubleshooting advice."
JOE, CERTIFIED TV EXPERT HERE, follow this information I provided 3 long solutions to this issue/s
Before we start taking things apart, lets try your simple remove power plug routine and power system back up. Also, please try your unit on a few different channels to see if your problem continues on each channel. Your Main Board, Power Board, T-Control Board are suspected problems at this time. Press and hold the power button for about 15 seconds, the unit should power down by itself after you have powered it on. If it does not, then do not be concerned. Let me know if the problem continues. The first link below will bring you directly to the troubleshooting guide if you need to continue forward with the same error.

Lets focus on the external portion of the TV set first (95 percent of all TV problems are related to things EXTERNAL To the tv itself) Check the physical CONNECTION of all cables by removing each wire bare or RCA and reinstalling it (Each power cable as well), once you have removed one cable, check it for fraying, and if it is already bare, splice a new fresh connection for it. 5. Check to make sure there are NO OTHER uneeded radios, system nearby. these systems, when powered on, will cause electromagnetic interference and prevent more than just severe tv interference SURGE PROTECTOR Surge protectors account for more than 75 percent of electric faults to stereo equipment. Lets start with your AC Wall outlet. It is standard in america that 220 Volts from out of these outlets. This implies that each device will be using 220 Volts (From within that grid zone). If anything including an alarm clock is plugged into any AC outlet socket in the vicinity of the stereo equipment/TV, it will cause electric outage, and prevent electronics from even turning on! Your TV needs dedicated electric power. If your TV is located in the living room then unplug everything else in the living room. Lets plug the TV set into a Dedicated socket. Check all light switches to ensure that power is on for that outlet. Check the TV cable for Fraying both on the ac wall end and where it plugs into the TV. Check all GFCI outlets to ensure that all red reset buttons are pushed in, check the circuit breakers for proper connection and they are turned on. Now, lets try the TV set without it connected to any cable services, vcr, dvd, stereo system, etc. Please respond if we have found a solution.
When troubleshooting these units, there are always several variables to consider. First check to see what last occurred with the unit such as did the children play video games, did the electricity go out due to bad weather. You may see that there are many possibilities but let's focus on what occurred last to the unit. Once we determine what happened last, we may isolate the actual cause of the problem. The actual cause may be associated with projection issues, older versions (Picture tube), interference from devices located nearby, and even a radio turned on and located really close to your unit. This is normally known as electromagnetic interference to electronics and is very common with the error you have provided today. Please continue to look for anything EXTERNAL to the unit before looking at the internal components. I have been working on these a long time so feel free to follow up with me.

If you can feed 3.3v to BL_ON line (but you have to disconnect the line from the main board first) and the backlights doe come on then you inverter is OK. What you can do is not connecting the BL_ON line to the inverter board, and feed the 3.3v to it so the backlights will come on and see if you get the pictures OK, I have a feeling you have bad main board that is not sending 3.3v to the inverter board and more likely you will not see the pciture on the screen either. I have seen this symptom before and it is the main board problem.
What is the make a nd model of the TV? You can look here for SCH. WWW.ELEKTROTANYA.COM
