Try to replace the YSCAN board. If not fix it, then it's the PDP Panel failure.

SOURCE: DELL LCD TV locked up w/screen message "main menu locked"

without a remote and disabled keypad keys, the only other option, is to open the unit up a physically RESET the TV. remove the cables from the power board. i believe it has a phillips head screw. careful when you separate the rear cover from the front cover. there is a board screwed in the lower right corner, there is a connecter and a ground cable screwed to the rear cover. take your time prying on the rear cover. once you separated the two pieces, look for the light yellow board with your AC power source. Unplug it for 30 minutes and repeat the process. while your at it, also look down to the lower left side of the monitor. u should be able to see the keypad. press each button, while pressing, look to see if the button is pressing against the circuit board. it may be loose, try this test, u just may be able to fix your keyboard as well. hope this works out.

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

Hi,
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
Eric

SOURCE: SSP-R4232 Plasma TV, blue light on, but tv wont turn on.

At this point it appears that your main board is probably bad. You most likely have a 5 volt scource going to the main board but its not powering up the set. The main board is part number BN94-00796A.
You might want to have a technician look at the TV to verify this as the issue before purchasing it. Please take a few moments to rate my answer. Thank you.

Samsung Plasma PN58B860 works fine for about an hour that a yellow error message "Not Available" shows up in the center of the screen and won't go away or allow power off without unplugging the TV.


Do you have a program preview button i.e. one that shows details of current program and the following program. When the message appears try hitting that preview button.

If my TV acts like it is locked but is not then what is wrong with it?


When an Insignia TV is locked, it keeps you from watching all of your channels by only displaying a black screen. Insignia TVs are locked from a single button command on the remote control, so it is easy for you to lock the TV by accident. Since Insignia TVs can be locked so easily, it's important to know how to undo this command and unlock the TV yourself. So, unlock your Insignia TV with the push of a button and once again enjoy watching your favorite programs.
• Find the lock button on the Insignia remote control. The lock button is located on the third column from the left on the second row from the top of the remote.

•Stand within operating range of the Insignia TV, then aim the remote at the TV's receiver and press the "Lock" button on the remote control.

• Aim the remote at the TV and press the channel buttons to make sure the TV is unlocked. When the TV is locked, it shows a black screen and does not allow you to view anything else. If the screen remains black, press the "Lock" button again. If this doesn't work, change the batteries in the remote and start over at step .

I want to figure out how to get the picture in picture and the half and half screen on my tv. It's been done before. It's a Samsung PLasma. What do I push on my remote?


If there is no PIP button on the remote then the PIP functions was that f a cable box. If you are connected to a cable box you are only supplying one channel at a time and you will see only one image.

Want to use samsung remote to control fios box and tv


You can use your own SAMSUNG remote but some of the guide options and dvr buttons may not come across.  If your remote allows you to 'map' the buttons you could circumvent the issue.
Another suggestion would be the universal remote by harmony.  great gadget.  pricey though.

My 50" Plasma has developed a band across the middle of the TV


All I can say is when you watch T.V. the plasmas run off of plasma gas and when you leave something on for so long it burns in the screen. I have the same T.V. and when watching like the weather channel it leaves lines but they go away. If yours are permanent then you can't do anything, but it may help if you go on your remote and go to "menu" then look for "setup" and scroll down with the arrows on your remote. Look for "screen burn protection" and select "white screen". This will make your whole screen white and it may take out the lines. If you let it sit white it won't hurt it. All one color won't hurt, the only thing that hurts is like bright white lines in front of a dark background. Just give your T.V. a break from time to time ESPECIALLY ON VIDEO GAMES. T.V. shows that are HD usually have their channel icons that move or are very dim and they won't hurt. Just go to what I told you and let it sit about 20 minutes, if that doesn't help, then the T.V. you have i believe comes with a 2-year standard warranty and if it's under warranty take it back if you have the reciept. If you don't have the reciept then call 1-800-SAMSUNG.

Settings screen keeps coming on


Remove the batteries from the remote and see if it still happens. If not, then you have a stuck button on the remote. If it continues, then it is a TV problem.
