    My tv works intermittently, and then after a period of displaying a fully working screen, the entire screen goes black but the sound remains on. Switching off and on resolves the situation, but the screen always goes black again. I have also had problems with the tv's ability to store information - channels scanned and saved, screen preferences etc. for much longer.

Hello arunaik_6,

This looks as if a component has become thermally sensitive. The best way to find this is to use component cooling spray. It looks as if the problem is localized to the tuner section. Take the back off of the TV and turn the TV on, wait until the problem occurs and lightly spray the tuner section with the component cooling spray watch for any reaction, then if this does not work spray the Microprocessor and the LVDS section and watch for a reaction. The set should go back to normal when it does that section is the problem, try to localize the problem to one component. Then replace that component.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

Shuttle83

Looking to buy a Samsung HP-S5073 Plasma, and the owner says that the screen goes blank sometimes. (But the sound still works while the screen is blank). This could happen for 5 minutes or an hour. Then it...


There is a possibility that this comes from poor signal quality. Re-booting the television may stop this behavior for a period of time, but if the problem is not corrected, it will return.

There could also be an internal problem with the television.

(Personally, I would look to buy something else.)

Hope this helps!

My samsung plasma tv has no picture only sound. I've been told that it has "run out of gas" ??


Plasma screens do not run out of gas, this is nonsense, there could be several reasons why you have no picture such as a fault in the sustain board. There is the possibility the screen could be at fault also but not for the reason stated previously. Go to a reputable repair centre & ask them to estimate the cost of repairing the problem. If it is the screen then it would not be worth getting fixed, but as I said there could be another cause.

Samsung T.V. goes on for 30 seconds then no picture


If this is a flat panel LCD tv, this is a sure sign that the panel itself is bad. I have seen this before. Tv comes on works fine then within 5 minutes goes blank.

I was using the ppm42s3 for my xbox 360 and all of a sudden it went completely blank and now the tv wont turn on


You Probably have a bad Power Supply. But the X-Main bd,Y-Main bd could also be the cause of the malfunction. I have seen many times that all three bds can be bad. You need to have a trained Samsung tech troubleshoot the set.

Samsung 50'' Plasma TV won't turn on anymore


If your tv is within the one year warranty period then call 1-800-Samsung for warranty repair. Look at your tv purchase receipt for the Purchase Date. You have one year from the date of purchase to get warranty repair.

Plasma TV screen dull


yep, do u have a digital multimeter? if so, measure all the voltages from the power board located top middle. if u look at the top right of the panel, there is a sticker with va, ve, vset, vsc settings. ground the black lead, and use the red lead to read each of the settings on the pow bd. if there are more than 2 mismatches, its your power board and needs replaced.
