Question about Samsung PN42A450 Plasma TV

I messed up my picture size on my plasma tv. I can't get it back

The picture is too large; and anything written on news shows, tv, SPORTS--the scoreboard is gone. I can't get it back to its default setting; PS:: I tried looking in the manual, but that is where all my problems started

    I messed up the picture size on my 50" samsung 450 plasma tv - I've already gone through the sizes on the remote but the wide screen size has the tv guide spilling off the side of the screen on both sides where I can't read it - it wasn't like this before, it's just started doing this - any suggestions of how I can fix it?

Try pressing the P-SIZE button on the Samsung remote until you get the picture size you desire.

The screen on my plasma tv cracked. i looks very minor but when i turn on the tv the power light flashes a few times and then finally comes on but there is no picture. is there something i can do get get...


I am sorry to give you the bad news..... Your TV is finished.

Plasma sets operate by creating a plasma between two glass panes spaced very closely together. A vacuum is created between the two panes and is it backfilled with a very small amount of rare gases.

When one of the panes is cracked, air enters the space and the set is no longer capable of producing a plasma.

SHOULD BE A BUTTON ON THE PANASONIC REMOTE THAT SAYS "FORMAT" OR "SIZE" OR "WIDE" OR "ASPECT" PRESS THAT BUTTON UNTIL DESIRED PICTURE IS ACHCEIVED.

THE FOCUS IS WRONG. i CANT READ ALL THE SCREEN ON SKY SPORTS NEWS.


Plasma screens don't have a focus as such so I suspect a problem with the upscaling of your pictures.
Try a different resolution value or screen aspect size.
Hope that helps.

Picture is to large for screen


Check your ASPECT, Screen Size, or Format button on the TV Remote. You probably have it set to Zoom. If you still have an issue, post a comment and I will help you further.

The TV will not show a picture. There are a couple vertical lines and sum red and blue pixels are visable


That must be an older tv because I'm not even showing the necessary part for repair. It sounds like the actual panel is bad. Most of them are not worth fixing. I have yet to see a plasma panel (the part itself) cost less than $600 and that's for a smaller one around 42". Its almost more cost effective to just buy a new tv. Sorry for the bad news.

VIZIO P42 plasma, half screen ok, other half showing blank


First you have to check if voltage and data are ok at the Y sustain board and the Y driver boards are not running hot. Even if you know how to replace these panels you must have a scope to adjust the v-set up and v- down. Not just a simple PNP. Trouble shooting a plasma is not a short time process to do it correctly. Please let a service center look at it for you.
