I am not very good when it comes to, well anything with electricity running through it. A friend of my family has just lost her husband in a car crash and her Samsung 46 LCD LN-R469D has decided to stop working (Off course the warranty ran out a few months ago). Other then changing out the bulb on my LG DLP, I really have no experience with this kind of stuff. Can anyone help?
The Audio seems to work fine, but the screen is black. The screen is lit black, just no picture. I was hoping that is was similar to my TV and just had to change the bulb, but I dont see any access panel, other then taking off the entire back cover, which I didnt want to do unless I knew what I was looking for. I have seen similar complaints on other forums, but those were intermittent problems, hers is consistently black, but like I said lit black and the audio works fine. I have unplugged it, changed around the input cables, basically all the normal things, but nothing has changed.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
