Question about Samsung HP-S5053 Television

1 Answer

Image is grainy whenever tv is cold

i have a Samsung hp-s5033 plasma tv and every time i turn it on if it is cold, the picture is rough and you can see pixels flying left and right. Also when the picture changes the previews picture fades away in a matter of about 2 seconds. Once the tv warms up the images fixes its self and everything is ok, and if I turn it off and then on it will be ok as long as it is warm. Its only whne the tv is cold that this happens. Any suggestions? Thanks.

One possible cause.
The Function Buttons on the TV have shorted,particularly the Volume button. The part is a PCB (Printed Circuit Board) and needs to be replaced.

You have a burn in problem from watching widescreen movies.If you have access to a signal generator or tv setup disc run a perfectly white screen on the plasma for about 30 min.This should help even out the pixels on the display.

Image is grany every time tv is cold.

I had the same problem. Except mine never got better after the tv warmed up. I fortunately I still have my manufacturers warranty and Samsung sent a guy out within a few days. He replaced a few parts which really didn't do anything. However what he did that was interesting was on two circuit boards. One on the mid left and the other on the mid right. Apparently there is a nob or something he tweaked on each panel that cleared the grainy image right up. What he told me was that the it is basically pixels that are not turning off in sync. adjusting the two circuit boards syncs the pixels to turn on and off at the same time.

You need to adjust the panel voltages, adjust the VS voltage to around 186 volts, if that doesn't change it then adjust the V-Scan voltage down, turn the unit on and apply a video source to it, and while adjusting the voltages look at the screen and you should be abe to watch the video noise fade out.
