Question about Samsung PN58B550 58 in. Plasma HDTV

Open Question

Green and purple horizontal lines

I bought a surge protector to "ground" the coax cable to get rid of lines which worked but then couldn't get about a dozen HD channels. Had nothing to do with cable box. Bought a new surge protector and same problem happened. So now I have coax cable directly into box again and lines are back. How can I get rid of lines and have all my HD channels work?

SOURCE: Samsung LCD tv no sound from one channel only, no

First try viewing regular programming and see if you have audio on both channels. If you do not then go to the user menu and make sure that the chim function is turned "on". Then turn off the tv and listen for the down chime coming from both speakers. If you only hear the chime from one speaker then the Aidio circuits are bad on the Main bd and needs to be replaced.

SOURCE: samsung lns4051d 40in has horizontal lines across

This sound likes the incoming signal is week. You should play a DVD player to see if the problem stays same or not.
If you try all sources ie HDMI, AV Component, etc...the TV show the same problem. There are two possibilites: T-Con board or main board need replacing. You should need technician to figure out the problem. Hope it help.

When and How Should a Surge Protector Be Used on a Fixed Switch?


Common Causes of Lightning Strikes
  • Outdoor network cables or power cables are routed overhead.
  • A switch is deployed outdoors but is not properly grounded.

Damages of Lightning Strikes
  • If power cables of a switch are routed overhead in an outdoor environment, lightning strikes may burn the power supplies.
  • If network cables of a switch are routed overhead in an outdoor environment, lightning strikes may burn interfaces of the switch.
When a switch undergoes lightning strikes, overvoltage is induced by lightning on network cables and transmitted to interior of the chassis. The surge protection measures, such as lightning rod and chassis grounding cannot prevent the damage. Therefore, surge protectors or surge protection circuits are recommended.

Surge Protector Use Precautions Take the following precautions to protect a switch from lightning:
  • Ensure that the ground cable is connected to a ground bar or a ground point on the cabinet.
  • Avoid routing cables overhead in an outdoor environment. Bury cables underground or route them in steel tubes.
  • To protect network interfaces against lightning, use 8-line surge protectors (or Huawei certified 4-line surge protectors).
  • When installing a network interface surge protector, connect the IN end to terminals and the OUT end to network interfaces of the switch.
If a fixed switch is installed in a network box, follow these instructions:
  • Connect the ground cables of the switch and surge protectors to the ground bar in the network box.
  • The maximum length of a ground cable cannot exceed 40 cm, and a length of smaller than 15 cm is recommended.
  • If the network box is located outdoors and power cables are routed aerially over a long distance (more than 300 m) to the network box, it is recommended that you install a power supply surge protector in the network box. The decoupled power cable must be at least 3 m long

Belkin how to connect cables to a belkin pureav 4 way surge protector to tv and dvd


This surge protector takes the power cables of the TV and DVD player. In addition, it will take the coax cable in and has a coax cable out for surge protection on your cable provider's incoming cable.

this is normally caused by voltage on the coaxial cable which simply can be solve by a surge protector with a cable in and out.. but this is just a way to passify the issue. More than likely there is a bad ground either in your house or on the comcast line

Purple lines bleeding over picture contors on plasma tv


I just had this problem with my pani pro plasma display (th-42ph9uk). Tried new wires, new cable box and had no luck. So, I went ahead and scheduled a service call.

Then, I bought a new surge protector - just a simple one from Radio Shack, that allows you to run the cable (coax) through it as well and it solved everything. Turns out it was a ground loop problem - and basically had nothing to do with the plasma.


Give it a shoot. simple fix for a very annoying problem. hope it works

Noise and horizontal line


Very easy Fix, The problem is the cable box is not grounded properly. (not your fault) Go to the Local store and get a Plug adapter, just to change the TV plug that goes into the wall or surge protector from 3 to 2. Trust me on this....
