Customer Question
I have a smart...

I have a smart TV by Samsung series 5 LED TV 58*. My TV has no video, just audio.

Technician's Assistant: How old is your Samsung, and have you tried unplugging it and leaving it off for a few hours?

It is about 2 years old. I have not ried unplugging for a few hours. I though have left it on since the time about 3 months ago when it would have audio instantly but video only after around 10 minutes. We were out of town for a week and this time we turned off the TV and the cable box.. The video never came back.

Technician's Assistant: Does the TV menu work? Do you have the same problem on all sources/inputs?

It happens on all inputs.

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this popped up?

3 months ago, the video would start after around 10 minutes. This time, since it had not been turned on for a week, the video never returned.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the TV expert to know before I connect you?

That's all.

Hello , I`m Jack , different tech. here

Is the screen just blank with some background light or completely dark like when the tv is off ?

If totally dark , When you first turn it on ,do you get a brief flash of light or perhaps the company logo on the screen before it goes dark ?
