Just over 4 years old and the picture has gone like half the screen is black but you can see some of the picture. the part you can see appears see thru ghost like. Model MX-42HPM20

Worst case, components have failed internally that control the electrical signals with the TV which means a repair shop, but these days a new TV works out cheaper.
The other option is loose/broken cables.
Does the TV do this on all channels and inputs?

My Prima flat screen just went blank and smoke coming out from the back. The tv is only 4 years old, any idea what the problem is and can it be fixed? Thanks

This sounds serious, I believe that you might have blown a fuse inside the TV set, you could try to replace the fuse but if any other internal components are damaged then you might as well purchase a new TV. Good luck to you!

Well i have a prima 42t8 plasma. i got it from a guy that said it needed a y board. i ordered a kit with all 3 boards. replaced them and still have nothing. does not power on now. do you have any...

Did you replace the power supply?
The reason is not powering ON could be because the old boards might have damaged the power supply and that is why is not powering ON even after replacing the boards.
