Lost video on a Samsung 42" HPR 4252 Plasma all other functions are go...there are 2 buffer boards that appear to be video drivers on the left side (inside from back) What is the likely hood of these boards being the correct ones to replace?

    Noted....already been to this sight (shopjimmy) and searched for the "presumed" correct board. One additional point.....when noticing the lost video there was soon an "burning electronics smell" emitting from the TV. When shutting down and removing the rear panel it "seems" the burnt smell was originating from these two boards ..."upper and lower buffer boards"...as they are called on shopjimmy. In addition, they have 6 ribbon cables that run to the front of the screen. So, my thought is ..that these were the correct boards. Secondly, when looking for parts on this model.....these are the most popular parts purchased on this model.... coincidence or not relative?

    ShopJimmy's server seems to be down at the moment...

    Thanks for your help.....

They are called the inverter boards. You need to replace the interter board of your Plasma so that the video would come back.

Here, I provided you the link where you can see the inverter boards:

I have a Samsung Plasma 4252 and i have red horizontal lines running across the top section and lower sections of the screen. here is a couple images: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v490/rd1tib/1-1.jpg...


I have the same problem on my set. I had a repair technician out today and they wanted to replace the circuit board that the buffers are connected to and the adjacent board that drives the buffers. If you remove the back panel the buffers that are in line with the distorted areas on the screen are running super hot. Estimated price with labor was $700.

Samsung HPR-5052X Plasma issues. Recently started


If the picture os goint to lines right from the midpoint downward then most likely you will have to replace the lower y-buffer board part number BN96-02027A. The board is mounted on the left side of the plasma panel when you take the back off. The upper y-buffer board sounds like it is failing as well and this was a very common issue on the older Samsung plasmas. The part number for it is BN96-02026A. Please take a moment and rate my answer. Thanks...

We have lost a two inch wide black section on the right side of the plasma panel, any ideas


Most likely the lower buffer board " E " needs to be replaced. Right now I'm working on repairing a 42" Samsung plasma HP-R4272. The Service manual for that TV says for trouble shooting for that problem is the lower buffer board " E ".
Best to find the correct Service Manual for your TV over the internet to get the correct part number for replacement. The Service Manual should be less than $20.

Black Line on Samsung TV Model # HPR-4252


This is a screen address failure from part of the matrix addressing. This can be caused by fair number of types of faults to cause a missing part of the addressing. You will not be able to fix this yourself.

Find out who the authorised local Samsung service is for your area. They will be able to give you an estimate.
