It could be the t con board, the power supply board, the backlighting, or the display itself.

Don't open it up unless you know what you're doing. There are hazardous voltages even with the TV unplugged!

    Actually, the majority of failures I've seen are the power supply board. There are multiple power supplies on 1 board and if the one that fails happens to be the one that powers the t con board then you will see the same failure.
    It's the power supply board that has the hazardous voltages. The rest are safe to handle.

Hi John,
The board that might need replacing is the T-con board but before replacing it, I would suggest to measure the voltage at F301 on the T-con board.

Samsung has standby light, it blinks tone sounds no green light. Replaced t-con, power supply and control boards.

Hi Patrick,

have a close look at your LVDS cable and screen ribbons for signs of failure or heat damage, and you could try to pull a picture from an AV output in various formats to see if it's the screen itself is failing in some way,

I have a Samsung TV model UN50H6350AFXZA which has sound but no picture. Backlights work. Replaced t-con board with new one, but not fixed. What next?

Main board. T con board is only involved with video issues. Main board goes both ways and since you already replaced the T con board that is your only alternative. U got backlite so inverter board is good.

I have a problem with Samsung LN40B530P7NXZA. Powers on nice but 10-15 min later image starts turning white until it turns all white. You can still listen but no image. Help!

This sounds like a defective T-Con board. There is a company that is testing the T-Con board and eventually fix it. They also may offer you a replacement T-Con board if yours can't be fixed. It is a good idea to contact them directly. You can find more details at

There is only about 2/3 of a picture being displayed on my tv. The right 1/3 is just black.

Sounds like you may need a T-con board if available,Sometimes it only comes with the whole panel assembly.If the T-con is available it may be worth repair,if not the cost of the panel will probably exceed the cost of replacement.You may be able to reseat the flat "ribbon" cables on the board and correct it.

Hello Chac c,

The reason that you are getting a 'red light' is because your lamp is burned out. There is a panel on the back of the TV that gives you access to this lamp. You can remove it and check the part# to be sure then replace it. I did a quick search for you just based on the model# which you provided. You can see it here -

Hope this helps :)
