Big large blackspot and fuzzy picture on Plasma TV

There is a large black spot on the left hand side of the TV I have, along with that it has very fuzzy color. other than that it seems to work fine. If anyone can tell me the problem with it I'd prefer to fix it mysef instead of emptying my wallet to someone else to do it. It's a Samsung HP-R4252 and I have included pictures of the problem's I'm having as well. Any help is appreciated. Thank you! Pictures:

SOURCE: Distorted picture and colors

The pop you heard was a component going bad. This could be as simple as a bad capacitor or something more complex. You don't indicate the age of the set. If under a year, it should be under warranty and I would recommend a warranty service call. If no longer covered, examine the boards for any sign of a "smoked" part and update this with the circuit designation. This is the number written on the board under or next to the part. For a capacitor, for example, the designation would likely be Cxxx.

SOURCE: PANASONIC TH-42PX60U 42 - half of screen not working

I had the same issue. I am going to replace my scan buffer boards. The upper half of mine works but the lower half is black so I would replace the lower Scan buffer board but in case of future issues I have ordered both upper and lower for $44.
The scan buffer boards are fairly simple to locate. Open up back of tv there are two biffer boards identical. The item or product code on them contain letters either SU or SD (Scan up and Scan down)Look up tv parts and item code you will find a place to order or just get the 1 800 number from tv manufacturer.

SOURCE: my samsung PN42A450 42" plasma tv started showing

You have problem with the screen board this is located on the top and corner of your screen. The slight solution to do this is try resetting the connector on the main board and the screen board and the screen. it might works or not. Or re-soldered the part on the screen. If the symptoms look for service personnel to do it for you.

SOURCE: I have a sharp 32sh12u that has a problem where

I don't yet have a solution for this problem, As I to have the Sharp model LC 32SH12U 32 inch LCD Tv. From what I have seen and read in searching for a relatively cheaper fix than just tossing out this $600.00 Tv,I have heard T-CON Board MANY MANY times now up until today I had a guy tell me that he was pretty certain that it is the SCREEN PANEL!!! I wouldn't think that if the screen was bad it's self it would show ANY colors or tints, Lines or what have you..I just think the T-CON Board is gone bad in this Tv As it has perfect sound, And like most everyone elses for a while after my TV warmed up it would play like a champ and had a BEAUTIFUL PICTURE until now I think the T-CON Board has gone completely out on it. Sharp must have undoubtably purchased ton's of BAD T-CON Boards that fit not only this TV but also the AOC,DYNEX,INSIGNIA,And Vizio Brand's of LCD TV's...The VERY Same T-CON board which is Part Number X3562TP ,Is futted in every one of these same brands of TV's And I feel they have gone bad in Thousands of LCD TV's and it has Obviously caused thousands of people some very bad issues with their entertainment wife and I are TV Folk and that is what we do...WE watch TV,,And now that our Main TV is broken and we can't really afford to just go out and Buy a new one I have to try and repair this one,And as Cheaply as I can, So I may be about to waste $40.00 on a T-CON Board, But hey I gotta KNOW..If this don't fix it, Im just gonna part the TV out on EBAY and go for another brand of TV..I thought SHARP was a really good brand of TV, But from what I have learned..our money would have been better spent on a different brand of TV!!! If this DOES repair our Tv I will be certain to come back and let everyone know!!

Big black square in middle of screen picture top to bottom about 36 " wide good audio and picture 6" on right and left side displaying.

If you have tried using different input devices, looked for loose contacts
in power outlet, RC Jack, cable and connectors, the TV might need service.

This morning I turned on my Magnavox plasma screen 42MF230A/37 and I heard a strange pop. When the picture came up there was a large black jagged spot covering about a third of the screen on the left...

Chances are real good, that you have a blown capacitor. When you open or lift the back cover, you will find one or two capacitors that are bulged! These capacitors will need replaced. I would guess one of them will be 25 volts at 1200Mf. There will be another very close by. I do not recall its value at this time. It will need replaced as well. Find a TV tech or even an electronic hobbiest to check all the nearby capacitors. You may be able to save this TV. Give me a few hands and thanks for asking!

Spots on picture

I had the same problem. Panasonic is kind of a pain about the whole thing. You have to find out who your local Panasonic repair place is, tell them there is a service bulletin and they will get on it. You must be diligent! Do not take no for an answer! If it comes down to it, and the repair shop won't do it for you, then call Panasonic and endure a loooooong wait time. Trust me though...this is the issue. Once the eeprom gets fixed/updated/whatever, the picture looks amazing! Good luck.

Big grey/black spot

Is it a fuzzy spot or an actual hard edged black spot?LCD televisions can have a loss of pixel display- most very small. Was the TV hit with something or dropped against something (the screen)?

OR Try this first:
Black box appears on the screen
• Closed-captioning might be on. Check the Analog or Digital Caption option in the Setup menu.

Please let me know if your problem is solved. Thank You.

Hyundai 42 inch plasma tv

Mine's out, too. Red Horizontal bars Left and Right, picture goes in and out(meaning fuzzy-no picture) on Left half and the TV tuner is gone, I can play DVD with half of a screen most of the time, occasionally the whole screen.

I should have returned my "returnable model" three years ago when I noticed Wal-Mart was NOT accepting returns when purchased after a certain date (I had purchased just before that date) Big, Big, OOPS!!

Repair estimate starts at $800, not guaranteed, and that does NOT include repairing the TV tuner. Ouch, Ouch, Ouch.

I see Hyundai stopped selling these units... anyone in the Chicago area that wants it for parts, let me know.
