Have TV Questions? Ask a TV Technician
Hi , I`m JackPerhaps I can help you with this problem but first a few questions , let me know when you`re ready ?
Give me a minute please , no longer expected you
You said " I believe the backlight is on "
Is the screen just blank with some background light or completely dark like when the tv is off ?If you are not sure then darken the room and turn the tv off and on again while you observe the screen .
O.k then this would definitely point to a t-con board problem .
How do you want to proceed from here ?Look into this yourself or the repair shop ?
Let me know and i will help you along if you wish to look into repairing this yourself ,otherwise i will give you the details and costs you could expect.
The t-con for this model cost some $90 to buy depending on where you get it from and there are some 4 versions of it for your model depending on the panel installed at the time of manufacture so yours would have to be matched first before ordering and you can do that at the link below , never mind that the t-con`s are not in stock there , that link is just for ID purpose and from there it could be found with the correct part number .
Here is that link ; http://www.shopjimmy.com/catalogsearch/result/?q=+LN46A650A1FXZA
If that is not your cup of tea so to speak then to have this repaired at home could cost you around $250 parts included and perhaps $50 less if you take it to the shop yourself .
If you need to find repair shops near you then look at the link below and enter your zip code ;www.tvrepairpros.comThis will give you a list of NESDA member repair shops in your area.This list may be limited though and you may find more by simply using the yellow pages or simply google "tv repairs" and the name of your town .You could give a call to different shops in your area to get an idea of their rates , it pays to shop around.

As i said above , yours would have to be matched first before ordering , this means opening the tv then looking up the t-con board in the upper center (at time slower center)at the back of the panel under a metal shield .
Then go to the link i gave you and match the numbers on yours with one of those at that link .
Now you can click on the individual t-cons there to get more details , the numbers will be located usually on a bar coded sticker but at times the d marks will be stamped on the board , just follow the instructions on that website , they show you what the id is and how to find it .
Once you got that then use the number given there and let me know or simply google it up and usually you will find numerous suppliers .
No problem , much welcome and as my part is done for now then please do not forget to rate .
Just let me know if you need help locate the parts , that rating does not close this post , it just gets me credited and paid for my work with you
