Question about Samsung HP-R5052 50 in. Plasma HDTV

1 Answer

Black Screen I think I might have changed the "mode" on my TV inadvertantly. The screen is black and no sound. I have Direct TV connected and I am not getting a picture. When I try to change the channel, "not allowed in this mode" or something to that affect comes up. I have tried resetting the cable box so I don't think it is the cable, I think the TV is somehow in a different mode. It was after viewing a DVD which works fine. But I can't get back to the TV mode???

Re: Black Screen

I have a Samsung HP5053 Plasma Flat Screen and there was a cracking noise and the picture clarity changed to dull. Does anyone else have information on recalls for this TV?

Tv has no picture but sound is ok

First of all, change the input device to something you know works for sure. Look for any jammed buttons on remote or on control panel. (This can happen, if you inadvertently sit on the remote hidden under a magazine or newspaper) Check the picture settings to ensure that these are ok. If problem persists, it might need attention by a qualified service technician.

No data is sent to the screen

When the screen goes completely black, shine a very bright flashlight closely at the screen. If you can see the image, then the most likely problem is that the backlight inverter has failed.

The inverter is a circuit board that works like a flourescent light ballast. If the inverter fails, there is no backlight, and the screen is black.

Since the invertor is a high-voltage component, I would also listen for any unusual sounds associated with the failure: e.g. buzzing, whistling, popping.

To rule out some sort of connection failure, see if you can recreate the failure mode when using the TVs internal setup menu. The setup menu does not rely on any external inputs....of course neither does the volume control or channel indicator on the screen.

Sounds like a bad av connection on the main board. i would try to connect the xbox via an alternate av connection or hdmi to verify problem. contact vizio support and describe your problem. they have had trouble with this main board. some of their parts have lifetime warranties and the service call is free. changing out the main board is a pretty simple process, about an hour or less. hope this helps.

Black out screen

I had the same problem once with my RCA television. It only happened on certain channels and didn't happen during commercial breaks. If I adjusted the volume on the tv the box went away, but came back shortly after. The problem ended up being some malfunction in the closed captioning. I turned it all off and changed the CC settings and never had the problem again.

Black rectangle appears on screen

Check the settings for the CC (closed captioning) on your menu. Make sure it is turned off - if it is set to TEXT mode you will get a black box in the middle of the screen. Also look for a button on your remote labeled "CC"
