Question about Televison & Video

2 Answers

I have a 50-inch Samsung Plasma(model S5053), purchased in Sept. 06. It has been outstanding in terms of HD quality picture, but recently it has developed a kind of twinkling effect in the background of the picture, almost like snow from bad reception. I have DISH network with excellent reception (two other TVs without the problem). Is this twinkling effect somethin common to Plasma sets and is there a solution?

    The effect is multicolored and is across the entire screen

  • miro3408 Dec 08, 2008

    New symptom: Last night I was watching when the screen made a couple of popping noises and the picture got extremely fuzzy. It cleared up a bit after a few seconds and became very clear, then again the popping noise and the fuzzy picture.

    Thanks for the comments. I have called for a technician to come out and see what's going on.

If this twinkling affect is mainly blue and predominantly in the corners or to the sides, the power supply voltages need to be adjusted.

    Can you see the twinkling with a black screen. There could still be voltage adjustments but also alignments on the Y-main board that does the video biasing.

    It soundas like bad connections on the Y-main board or the Y-drive board. These are the boards that introduse the video to the plasma panel. Good luck

Maybe it's time 4 a new t.v. Do you leave t.v. on a lot or play a lot games. Turn off your t.v. when not using. Is t.v. old, get a new new one. You will be you did. The newer sets have HD which make for better viewing. I suggest an LED and not a Plasma.

S5053 50 inch plasma HD samsung . Picture went completely black only on audio


If you shut the television off and unplug for 12hrs this will reset the microprocessor. If this doesn't help, then the power supply has at least one bad capacitor. These are not expensive to replace if you are able to do the work yourself. Most television repair companies don't bother replacing anything at the component level. It's quicker for them to replace the power supply. Hopefully this will be of some help.

I have a 50 inch samsung plasma tv that i think


You would need to purchase a complete new screen as it is not practical or economic to have this done. I would suspect your fault could be a poor connection from the buffer board to that section of the screen or most likely, as you state, the screen is at fault. It is now just as reasonable to buy a new TV than to have the screen replaced

Hp-s5053 samsung plasma with snow on hd content


It appears that the Main bd is bad. Try using Component cables instead of the HDMI cables and see if there is a change. If there is a change to normal picture then try another HDMI cable. If the problem returns then replace the Main bd. There three Main bds for this basic model number. You will need the version# found on the right side of the set to order the correct bd.

Yes, you need to buy HD station.
But with DVD you can get HD quality without any other station.

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.
