Sounds like a buffer issue. I would need the model number of the set and for you to also clarify about how much of the picture is visible at the bottom.( percentage of screen area). Then I can assist you properly

    Ok thats almost gotta be the famous Y buffer upper and lower boards and also the Y rive board is usually replaced at the same time as the Buffer boards. Have you checked the fuse on the Y drive board to see if its blown? usually just reoplacing the upper and lower Y buffer boards will not work and it usually kills the new buffers when the Y drive isnt replaced as well.

SOURCE: Broken Plasma TV

I'm looking for a broken screen HP-S5053 to buy from someone. I have a new screen that needs a home. I need one that is complete and working other than the screen. Or I would sell my screen to you. Thanks, Wade wade@engineeringexperts.us

Get the tech supplier to tell to the manufacture and the store what he told you.

Physical damage on any electronic device is very hard to have serviced under warranty. I have never seen a plasma display crack on its own. But, anything can happen.

I once saw a man drop a newly bought plasma TV in a parking lot outside from where he bought it and the screen broke. He never even made it home from the store!

Maybe you should contact a lawyer or someone who can give you legal advice about how to proceed with this. In different countries and different states the consumer protection laws are different.

I had the same issues and the tech came out and replaced the main board... one way to tedt if it is the PDP is in the service menu.. run the plasam ttests and verify you don't see any dots. After replacement the tech checked all voltages and all is well.

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.

SOURCE: Bottom half of the screen is black on Samsung HP-R5072 50 in. HDTV Plasma Television

I have a solution. My Samsung plasma had the same problem with the bottom half of the screen being black. Follow these directions and it will not cost you a dime, just some time. I took the back panel of the tv. I found the lower buffer board on the left hand side. I disconnect all the ribbon cables. Use an air cleaner to spray out any dust on the ribbon connection and the board. I connect the ribbons back to the board. My plasma is now as good as new. If you have issue with the top portion, do the same with the upper buffer board. I was going to buy a new tv but I'm glad I gave this a shot first. It's been almost a month and it's still working fine. Hope this helps and hope it saves you some money.

Hello there, I have a 50" Samsung Plasma TV. There is weird horizontal colours at the bottom of the screen. Can this be fixed eazialy? Thanks Jodie.


I've had this happen recently. Can it be fixed, yes. However, it takes a good amount of work. Worse case senario, if you can find no one who can fix it, you would have to get another tv as this wold be a problem with the hardware of the tv.

Hello! Unfortunately samsungs have a weakness in their driver boards, particularly the Ysustain video driver. This needs looking at by an experienced engineer, who will be able to diagnose this swiftly, and hopefully fairly cheaply. I have personally repaired over a dozen samsungs with this problem, and prices for parts without service range from 50 off the net , to 200 from main dealer. These are good sets, its a shame this problem is seen time and again.

Picture went out on me its brand new tv voice is there what happend


if you see the volumn bar on the screen when you adjust the sound then the tv should be OK. So look for HDMI wire not inserted fully or what ever wire sends your info to the tv from your cable box, satelite box, or whatever. Or does anything show at all on the screen that you can see, like snow on antenna without a signal input. Maybe a real problem.

If you have no warranty, you have no options. Even if you did, most manufacturers will not cover physical damage. The cost of replacing the panel which is what would be necessary.
