Question about Samsung HP-R5072 50 in. Plasma HDTV

1 Answer

It went DARK!

We have the red sparkles everyone else is talking about, but last night for the first time ever... it seemed to not turn on. The blue light in front had been flickering so I unplugged it from the surge protector directly into an outlet... turned it on and then nothing... but then 1 minute later it popped on and off. Not sure what to do... bought it in 2006.

I have the same T.V., we've had it for about 6 months but yours may be the power cord, check the back and move it to places to see if a certain angle turns it on. If not then check the power cord for bare wiring which is the metal hanging out of the rubber insulation.

Hi, Have done some research on the matter. It seems there is a signal strength problem. You may need to adjust the signal by boosting it or turn up the gain. If you are with a cable or dish company you will have to talk to them for a fix. Till then good luck.

Hi yes i had the same problem and its basically because the tv needs a software upgrade. I contacted argos and they sent an engineer to sort it and he plugged something into the back of the tv to upgrade it. all in all it took 5 mins to do and not had a problem since.

I had the same problem I was told to unplug then reset but still no luck. Mine have been broken since Aug 2006 and seems like it's so hard to find somebody to fix it. Please let me know if you fix yours.
