    would this be a easy at home fix or would I need to take it in to get fixed? What would it cost?

    Same .problem but with 50" Sampo. usually have to wait about one minute unplugged then replug in and the power button works. started intermittently, but now it happens 2 times a day. when works, crystal clear picture, but when the unit starts to fail, picture looks scrambled and TV will not turn off, unless we unplug from wall. Sampo, i am told is no longer in business, so where or how do we get a 50" plasma serviced?

A digitalizing picture is most likly a bad connection on a screen driver cable or the driver itself is intermittant or the power supply has an intermittant filter on the substain B+ line. hope this hellps.

    Not unless you have surface mounted componet repair experience. My advice would be to take it in to someone or call the manuafacturer.

Sound but no picture.


Try a hard restart, which simply means unplugging the power cord of the TV, and replugging it after 4 hours have passed. This technique reprograms the electronics, to a certain extent. If things do not improve after you replug it, then your TV has a more serious problem, that requires the attention of a repairman.

The screen on my 1 year old 42 inch Akai plasma tv suddenly went blank although I still have sound. Any clues?


Reset the cable/sat box and tv by turning them off, unplugging them both from the wall outlet, and replugging them after 30 seconds. See if you get pictue back when they get the correct handshake. also, make sure that there are no loose cables going into the TV or into the cable/sat box. You can try using a different type of connecting cord from the cable/sat box to the tv to make sure it is not a bad connecting cord.

What type of cable is connecting your cable/sat box to the TV? Is it HDMI?

Are you using a video game system on the plasma?

DELL 42 inch Plasma TV


I have a 42" LG LCD TV and just experienced this today. Watching cable, then the screen went to black, but audio continued. I pressed the guide button on my remote and pic came on with my guide menu. But then went to black again 10sec later and has remained that way for nearly an hour. Tried switching off both cable box and TV, disconnecting and reconnecting cables, but no luck. Finally unplugged mains, waited a minute, then turned back on. Everything seems normal now after the reboot. Phew.

"No Signal" floating notice on Blue Screen - No other picture


If all connections and the tuner have the same issue, you either have a power supply issue or a bad digital board.
