Black screen I have a Samsung un46d8000 flat screen TV which is about 8 months old. It has so far worked without problems but yesterday when switching on there is just a black screen. Sound from all inputs is fine and it looks like that there are 4 small lights in the back that you can see glowing through the screen. Its still under warranty if I can find the receipt!! If I dont find the receipt any ideas? I did have a peek in the back and there looks to be one big board that drives the Screen.

When I used the remote and turned the unit on, the blue light came on, but no picture or sound appeared, then the blue light went out. I repeated the unplugging process a couple of times
