Question about Sampo Projection Televisions

4 Answers

I have a 42" Sampo-PME42S6 plasma TV. Its been running perfect until yesterday when it started to show lines and picture degradation after approx 3 to 5 mins of running. I thought it was the cable box so I changed to a DVD player as the source, the same exact thing happens. Pls help.

Typically the symptoms you describe can be either poor connection of the connectors and cables or some parts that are starting to break down because of heat. If the set is no longer under warranty, start with opening up the back and reseating all of the cables and connectors. Be careful with the flat ribbon cables coming from the panel itself. Update this with your results. If needed, we can look further.

Change ur pIF you are saying that every thing is connected properly check your video cable it could be bad use a new one if that does not rectify your problem it is time to call in the tech you could be having problem in your video circuit but you did not mention if the screen light up with no picture but with sound or it does not light up blank with sound.however there could be two things 1 if the screen lightup with normal sound it could be a leaky ,open, or shorted, transistor or ic in the IF circuit.2 If the screen does not light up and has normal sound it could be a defective horizontal stage.so it is time you take the set to a tech for repairs.good luck.

Did you try to unplug the TV from the power outlet for about half day to let it reset itself and also to cool down the unit, and that should do the trick for this problem..

Hope that helps............

You can try a hard reset: Unplug TV from AC mains and remove all cables from TV. Wait about 30 minutes and replug to AC power and redo the cabling. Switch on the TV and see if it works.. this not work check the cable try yo use another pair of cables ,even this did solve your problem then you need contact the company if under warranty ,if its out of warranty then you need get service from local TV repair center....


Good luck..

I have a philip 42 in plasma tv that i bought 3 years ago and yesterday the image went from perfect to speckles and red lines... only about a 5 in horizontal section in the middle of screen is still...


This is a problem that I've seen a million times with HP TV's that use LG panels. The problem had to do with the controller board that sends the signal to the video sustain boards. To rule out any signal interference that maybe causing this if I'm wrong, bring up the OSD and try a DVD that is connected to a different input. If they are effected too, then it is has nothing to do with the incoming cable/satellite signal and the TV would require service.

HELLO AM TOMMY BERRY FROM CLEVELAND HTS OHIO, I HAVE A 42 INCH HAIER PLASMA TV, THAT I BROUGHT 11 MONTHS AGO , IT WAS WORKING PERFECTLY UNTIL THIS EVENING WHEN I WAS CHANGING CHANNELS AND THE TV WENT BLANK...


Since you still have sound, you haven't accidentally switched the TV to a different source, so I would say that something has failed inside. If you have had it less than a year, place a service request and maybe they'll come over and ifx it before football season gets going

My Sampo 50" Plasma tv has started blinking


In my solution I suggested part-store where you can find boards for your tv. I'm not sure what board is defective as TV isn't in front of me and in my opinion you need qualified tech person to identify what board is required to resolve the TV issue.
Thank you.

I have a teac plh4220sd and is about 18 months old. recently the picture quality started to degrade and yesterday completle lost picture but still have sound, is there anything that can be done


Hi I have the same problem and fixed it by running a fan behind the TV I think the Plasma screen runs to hot.
The fan completely fixed the screen if you feel the top of the TV you can see how hot it gets running a fan behind the set keeps it cool.
