Question about Samsung HP-R4262 42 in. Plasma Television

42in Samsung with horizontal lines/static

We have had our Samsung for 3.5 yrs. It does get lots of use and waqs trouble free until about one month ago. Horizontal lines will appear and gradually worsen until the screen goes black. We turn it off, wait 2-3 hours and it will usually be ok. Any ideas why this happens? Is this considered the life span of a plasma screen? Do we need to get a new tv?

Re: 42in Samsung with horizontal lines/static

1st thing to do is to check its parts if it has a losen leg,then you have to check the horizontal out(H-Out) it is one of the larger transistor and it commonly place beside the Fly back X former ,the best material to used is multitester, and if it didnt work try to check the filter capacitor( it is the largest capacitor) And also check other capacitor, tnx hope it will helped you!

Check and replace damaged component/s at its horizontal scan output section circuit. Check the LOT (Line Output Transformer) too for damage. Replace the horizontal scan output transistor. Check the input voltage to LOT. If the voltage is absent check the feeder resistor; if any. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience.

I have a Samsung ln46b530 hdtv. One month. Just

I think the picture mode set by you or some one put in JUST SCAN MODE, go and check it back and should let it as 16:9. Else, you should play DVD and see if the line happen or not. If it still hapens, return it and exchange another one.

Horizontal line of white static

Will it happen in all chanels and all sources? Do you see this line when you are playing a DVD player.
If yes, you have to check the power supply and the main board as well.

Samsung tv prob

My daughter's LCD which is barely used started showing horizontal coloured lines.I read that the LCD's are vunerable to static/charge build up and also power surges.

I unplugged my daughter's TV and it is now working properly however we now unplug the TV when it's not in use.

I was considering purchasing a larger model for the faily room but Not going to waste my money until they improve this rechnology.

Good luck to all.

I unplugged the TV and now the picture is back.I read that the LCD's are vunerable to static build up so unless my daughter is using her TV I unplug it.

I was thinking about getting a large LCD for the family room but I'm not going to until they improve on this technology.

Good luck to everyone!.
