Question about Samsung HP-R4252 42 in. Plasma HDTV

Verticle lines on screen

I have a 6 month old 50" Samsung HP-5053 HD plasma tv. The tv has worked great until just now. When the tv is turned on there are black or dark colored verticle lines from top to bottom across the whole tv screen. The lines are evenly spaced, roughly about an inch apart. The first day it happened the lines went away for about a minute, but then came back. The lines have been there ever since. I am also hearing a buzzing sound coming from the back of the tv. The buzzing sound was there since I bought it, but now it seems to be a little worse. Please help? I have a trouble ticket out with Samsung, and have talked to the service company they told me to use. Its been a week since I have heard back from the service company. I called the service company today and was told the technician was out sick!

This is a very easy fix. Your cable box is not grounded correctly. To fix this you need a AC Plug adapter. This will change your TV ac plug from a 3 wire to a 2 wire. This may sound funny, but trust me on this. I have fix a lot of TV in NY doing just this.Verticle lines on screen - 24001fc.jpg

Maybe it's time 4 a new t.v. Do you leave t.v. on a lot or play a lot games. Turn off your t.v. when not using. Is t.v. old, get a new new one. You will be you did. The newer sets have HD which make for better viewing. I suggest an LED and not a Plasma.

Parallel vertical lines through left side of Panasonic Plasma tv


This sounds like one of the driver boards at the bottom or top of the screen has an intermittent fault. The set will have to be taken in to a service centre.

NO VIDEO


I have a Samsung 50" plasma, that has been blacking out over the last 6 months. A 9/2005 set. Now its practically unwatchable as it happens 3 times in an hour. Its not heat related - I have a high volume 9" fan activated on TV power on. Turning the set offf/on usually makes it come back for a now short while. Considering to go put it in the back of my pickup and park it in front of Best Buy and discourage Samsung purchases. This is the 2nd Samsung TV I've purchased (the other a 32" tube) I gave to my folks a couple years ago and its gone bad as well. Samsung product may look good, but their video engineers are not.
