    To whom it may be of interest.

    There is no two year warrany from samsung, they don't know if they are coming or going they gave me service order but the the repair facility said that i have to pay $75 for service call plus parts. I moved last week and I turn theTV on yeserday in the new place and it came on, go figure (maybe a bad ground or bad connection). I am not going to turn it off ever till it dies.

    I will never going to buy another samsung product again stick to the Japanese.

    I have a Samsung Model;HPS5053X/XAA same as the HP-S5053.
    Basically the blue LED Would start to flash longer in the beginning and then came the clicking noise like it was having trouble with capacitance.(Storing power for a big enough electrical charge to turn on the PLASMA GAS).Finally it flat just stopped working all together.
    I went to Just and payed 15 dollars got a new power supply as according to the Tech. that was what was wrong, put it in and it still does not work. What is with all the scammers???

    I have the same problem. First, blue light flashes, then clicking then it would turn on. Some times hours later. Now it does not do anything. I unplugged for over 8 hours as someone suggested on the internet, but this did nothing. Next step is to replace power supply or maybe relay. Any suggestions??

I fixed this model of TV. Symptom was NO POWER. Totally dead. Not even a blue LED up front. Here's what I had to do...
I found a blown thermistor on the power supply board. It's green and located near the 120vac mains input to the board. There is a component number written on the board near it (as with all components) and it begins with "TH" i believe. So it will be something like "TH101". It was very easy to identify that this part had gone bad on my power supply, as i was literally blown apart and debris had been scattered all about the area.
Before finding this faulty component, I had done some preliminary voltage testing from the power supply's outputs. I started with the 5 volt stand by signal feeding into the logic controller board. It was bouncing around from 1v-3v.
After replacing the faulty thermistor, there was a steady 5v signal on the standby circuit. However, the blue power button was still not illuminating. And there was absolutely no voltage going into the power button board (which is fed from the logic controller). So after attempting to replace a few dozen suspect high ESR SMD caps on the logic board (to no avail), I ordered a new one.
And then the TV came to life.
Works great now!
Feel free to ask for advice.

The problem is the magnetron or the inverter board if less than 7 years old. the cost for parts will approach or exceed the value of a new one.

My sumsung over the counter micowave is running but it does heat

The problem may be the magnetron or the inverter board, if the unit is less than 7 years old. Cost of parts alone will approach the price of a new one.

Hi. I have a Zenith 42" plasma TV - Z42PQ20 that's

I had this exact problem on my TV, everything said it was the power board. It wasnt, luckily i was able to return that board. It was the YSUS board.

I should have done this this first but this is how i verified the old power board was good. Unplug TV, take the cover off and disconnect the wire harness going to the YSUS, plug TV in and turn on. If led stay blue its the YSUS.

I have a sumsung 50'' plasma and it turns itself off after about five minutes then makes a clicking noise if i unplug it then plug it back in it stays on for the same amount of time then turns itself off...

A common problem for these is bad capacitors in the power supply, Remove the back from your Tv and look at the power supply on the left hand side.

You will see roughly around 9 x capacitors that are bulged / domed shaped on top usually these are valued at 3300uf 10V any that have bulged or leaked a brown like substance should be changed.
This will cure the problem as they overheat being sat next to a heatsink that gets very hot!
Try and change them for the same 3300uf but a higher voltage.
Hope this helps

My 50'' Samsung Plasma has dead screen after only 2 years

welcome to fixya!
without doing voltage checks, my best guess is this:

Plasma hpr5053 or hps5053 models will burn out a buffer board or both, there are two buffers and the Y board.
I usually change all 3 at once, but if on a budget you can try to remove one buffer and see if you get half picture (upper or lower)
this is something only a technician should attempt. the boards cost $200 each (buffers)
$300-$400 (Y board).
if you actually get half a picture the Y and one buffer are good, a bad buffer usually burns out the Y board. and in really bad cases the panel is bad also (not common, but possible)
For part#s , specific help you can post a model# , but again this is a repairmans job not something the average customer can fix.
hope this helps

No Signal or Check Signal cable?

did you make sure tv was on the right channel or on the right line (1, 2, or3,) channel? if ao, how old is the ps3? try wiggling the cable in the back of the ps3. it might get the signal to come through. if it that works then the prot on the ps3 is bad. find out if it is still on warantty.
