Picture burn is caused not only by xbox's, wii's and such, but by regular tv as well (those little insignias in the bottom right hand corner).

Main thing is to turn any brightness controls down to lower levels, and do not leave still images on the screen all the time. As long as the images are moving, then the screens don't "burn".

I was watching my Hitachi 42hdm12 and heard a pop and now the picture won't show up or sound or anything?


A pop is usually a power surge and you blew a board. If you take the tv apart, if this is it, it will be evident by the burn marks. You could have burned out the internal power supply as well.

Sound no picture


Sound but no picture....
Should ask yourself, does it PRIME? Meaning, That's where the Plasma panel lights up a little for about 10 seconds after startup. -- If it doesn't prime, then you need either the SMPS, YZUS, possibly both. OR you might need to check the ZSUZ. Driver boards can be culprits too.
And can you even get to the Menu, Volume, etc. but just picture?
Then you need the signal board.
Unfortunately that's pretty common with Plasmas. Can burn out or burn "in" easily.

Here's a great forum you might like. http://www.austech.info/electronics/20607-lg-plasma-tv-has-no-picture.html

Different Brand but similar problem. This site is excellent for do it yourselfers. As for Samsung Parts, be thankful if you are a DIY-er that the parts are much cheaper if you install yourself. Separate with installation adds up very quickly. Personally, I decided to go with the Rear Projection Samsung several years ago and haven't had any major problems. Heard then that Samsung was having lots of complications of this nature.

Here's the link to Samsung Site:

http://www.samsung.com/us/support/owners/product/SPN4235

You can try the tricks on this site:

http://www.broadbandreports.com/forum/r22996341-samsung-spn4235-sound-but-no-picture

To be honest though sounds like either bad SMPS and/or bad Y-SUS pcb's.

Wish you good luck.

all lcd/plasma tv will suffer from burn image if you leave the xbox 360 on pause for hours at a time just playing game shouldnt leave an image on the screen as the picture is changing all the time the only way around this is an old style tv(tube style)

Is it safe to play video games on your projection televisions?


Yes,but just don't pause the game's or leave the game without playing for a long time like about 1 to 3 hours.Because DLP tvs and Plasma tvs have higher rate picture screen burn in.The image burn in,the tv picture screen panel are useless,because there no way to get rid of the previous images burn in.

52 in RCA


The RCA needs a flyback if its an ITC222 chassis which is waht the D52W20 RCA is. You can get a replacement flyback at the following link with free tech support so you can do the repair yourself which is a very easy repair. You need flyback number 259296. As far as the XBOX you should never play any video games on a rear projection TV as it can cause burn in on the CRTs if it is paused. video games are best played on a direct view, plasma or LCD TV. Rear projections like the RCa is not a good idea because of the possible burn in. heres a link to your flyback 259296

I don't think you'll have any problems with burn in on a rear projection TV. CRT and LCoS type televisions can have burn in problems
