Samsung PS-42V4S plasma TVwith black & white lines

I have a Samsung PS-42V4S with black & white lines.

Looking online many people seem to suggest dry solder.

As out of warranty had a look but discovered that the chips on the ribbon cables don't look soldered but instead in a kind of plastic depression.

any help appreciated

It does sound a lot like a buffer board problem, Just which one is the question. Sometimes it is in fact a connection issue. But 1/2 of the screen missing sounds like maybe connection between the 2 buffer boards. It could possibly be the panel. If that is the case. ITs over for that set. But i would suggest first calling samsung and asking them to extend the warranty for 90 days or so. Sometimes they will do this for nice customer such as yourself. 1-800-SAMSUNG. Let me know how this turns out first then we can proceed further if needed. Good luck and keep me posted. Sincerely Jay

first is it still under warranty through the manufacturer samsung is verry well with wanrranties
It sounds like it is most likely the plasma gas itself and in that case it would cost way more than what you could purchase another one for.
by the time you have a tech come out and fix the plasma gas tube itself yould be looking well over 1000

SOURCE: 50" Samsung Plasma with black screen

I had the same problem and had the TV serviced and found that the y board was blown $350 total. The repair guy explained that the board has a hot transister underneath that slowly leaked onto the board, but says that they can not get Samsung to admit to the problem. Works fine now but only have a 90 day warrenty on the parts.

Possibly could be the Y buffers --if the are next to each other could be a bad connection on a ribbon cable ---you need to call for service

You have bad capacitors on the power supply. This is a common problem. I published a tutorial to guide the DIY persons through the repair. Have a look in my Tips & Tricks if you wish to had a go at the repair yourself. I hope this was helpful, best wishes.

Samsung plasma tv ps42c7hdx flickering lines


Yes, yes, yes. Change all bulgy, puffy capacitors by exactly the same value and voltage. Look for any excessive voltages in these areas where you find such capacitors. But replace capacitors only one by one. Never remove all of them together, as you are likely to misplace the capacitors, creating more problems. Also look for any loose contacts and dry solders.

Samsung HPR-5052X Plasma issues. Recently started


If the picture os goint to lines right from the midpoint downward then most likely you will have to replace the lower y-buffer board part number BN96-02027A. The board is mounted on the left side of the plasma panel when you take the back off. The upper y-buffer board sounds like it is failing as well and this was a very common issue on the older Samsung plasmas. The part number for it is BN96-02026A. Please take a moment and rate my answer. Thanks...

Black Vertical Lines in screen


All I can tell you is that you maybe have left your T.V. on a channel that didn't move for so long, or maybe someone else did and it burnt the screen. Plasma's run off of plasma gas to create the great picture and they collect on the screen and stick. What you need to do is go to your menu and look for "screen burn protection" and put it on white and let it sit for 20 minutes. All of one color such as white doesn't harm your T.V. The only way anything burns is like a bright white line in front of a black background.

Pioneer PDP-425CMX 42" Plasma Tv


Try the scan PCBs that run down the side and the connectors that hook them up to the rest of the system. That would be my first place to start.

Unfortunately I don't have service manuals for non-european models. What is the date of manufacture?

White line


There are individual drivers for each line of plasma cells in the display (horz. & vert.), but they usually are an integral part of the display module that can only be repaired by the manufacturer. A new 42" HD-ready set with more features can be bought for 50-75% of what was likely paid for this one. The cheapest thing to do is learn to live with it. (That's what I'd do until the set got worse or the prices got even lower.)
