Question about Samsung PPM42S3 42 in. Plasma Television
I have had the tv for 18 mth never had a problem now it comes on for a while then goes off and leaves behind a clicking noise.When the tv is on there is a perfect p[ic and sound but does not stay on for long Same problem. Talked to Samsung, TV not even 2 yrs old they told me I'm sol. I talked to the repair man 210 buck just for him to look at it!
I think it is the software checking for an update.
I also have a Samsung plasma.
Go to Menu- Support- Software Upgrade- Standby Mode Upgrade.
It is generally set frequently (mine was every 45mins) so I just changed it to 0:00 so it 'clicks' only once at midnight to do the software check.
Hope this helps.
