Hello , my name is Jack
Perhaps I can help you with this problem but first a few questions ;
Do you mean that the screen just blank with some background light or completely dark like when the tv is off ?
Can you see the tv`s own menu for example ?

No picture of anything it's a bit greyer than it is when it's off but no menu or any texts is there a safe mode to stop screen burn
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 3 years ago
Sorry but no , this is not like a PC and monitor , no screen saver here .From what you described it looks like your tv will need repair I`m afraid and that would be the t-con AKA lcd controller board .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.
