Does the image cut in and out when you ben the screen? did it happen after a severe drop? It could be a loose or defective LCD cable or a broken screen. In both cases it is a difficult repair but it can be done, if you look for guides on how to open this laptop online you will find something, so at least you can check if your LCD cable is properly connected. I work for company that does Laptop repair in NYC and we do this repair frequently.

No its probably the cable ...
easy way to test is to plug an lcd into the extenal monitor jack....if the pictures fine it will be the cable.

This is a common problem with the Samsung R70.
The problem is that the mobile version of the nVidia 8400 and 8600 GPU's have a habit of overheating and then burning out after a few months.
Unfortunately this BGA chip is soldered to the motherboard, so it is almost impossible to replace without damaging the motherboard, unless you have a very expensive BGA rework station.

Plasma banding

It's a problem with your TV panel or possibly main board, it might get worse over time. If it's new, return it, if it's used then there isn't much you can do. A new TV would probably be cheaper than repairing it

Samsung blue screen sleep

Blue Screen Sleep? Is it it sleep or hibernation mode or are you saying the Blue Screen Of Death (BSOD) which will not allow you to boot successfully?

If it's in sleep or hibernation mode, then check your Power Options in the Control Panel. Set the sleep or hibernation up high or set it to NEVER. Click Start/Control Panel or Start/Settings/Control Panel and look for the Power Options.

If it's the Blue Screen of Death that is preventing windows from booting up, try running the Check Disk Utility.

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc or a operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot from it. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with white letters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice the percentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run to completion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows. Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair when the options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recovery console and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

White band in middle of screen

To try and narrow the source of the problem here are a few things you can try.

Do you get the white band in the BIOS setup screens?
If you do then it is a hardware problem.

Also try connecting an external monitor. If you still get the band on an external monitor then it is probably some kind of software problem.

Try booting from a linux live cd. There are heaps of different versions you can download.
If you can boot linux from a cd no problem then it isn't hardware

If it is software you can decide if your what to try and fix it or nuke it and install from scratch.
If it is hardware you might have to get a quote to have it repaired and then decide if it is worth it.

This is of course assuming you are out of warranty.

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.
