The backlight on my Samsung seems fine, when I turn the tv on I get the sound of whatever channel is on, the screen has a blueish backlight but of course there is no image...... I've had the tv since summer of 2010 so I don't think it is an age problem.
I saw this video on JTV the other day n I just said wow! After listening to it a second time to really get the lyrics I had to smile. A tad unexpected from Robbie but who's complaining. British VI represent!
