Question about Samsung PPM42M8HB Plasma TV

1 Answer

Sound only with a black screen.

I have had my SAMSUNG flatscreen for 1.1/2 years with no warrenty, and I have a big problem it's BROKEN much to my dismay. The screen turns on with a picture and then instantly goes black. I have sound only, it has been tested through SAMSUNG by checking to see if the menu comes on with no SKY. It does not. So they said it was not a problem with the sky but the TV. Please advise. Surely a TV should not have broken down after such a short time. A very upset SAMSUNG customer. Plus I was told it would be 30 pound call out and 45 fee to fix.

Sounds like the backlight is out, can you see a picture when shining a flashlight on the screen. if yes you have either a bad inverter power supply or bad screen (panel).
both are serious , also could be just a few bad capacitors on the power supply, if you want you can do a visual of the power board caps will appear swollen on top and are easy to solder in if you have a soldering iron

Image goes to black on Sharp flatscreen.


An LCD unit? Sounds like the backlight is failing. When it goes black next time, use a strong light next to the screen and look for a faint image on the screen....

If it is the backlight, its a service shop issue.

My Samsung 47 has a black film covering 1/2 the screen for about


Samsung only makes TVs that last 2 years, mine also has the same problem. Throw it away and buy a cheaper disposable TV, despite all the hype Samsung is just another cheap and nasty manufacturer who uses its customers as product testers. Why do you think they keep changing model numbers every week ?

Samsung flatscreen lcd picture went out 18 months after purchase. I hear sound but see black screen.


i have had to repair a few of those and the best! info i can give you is this!! the main board has to be swapped out! there little that you can do to repair it most of the parts are manufacturer availibility only! and non serviceable! by the user most boards are shipped complete at a cost of $90-$160 depending on supplier and area.

Sound but no picture is it the picture tube or just another problem


most likely will not be the tubes mate, if the tubes go then you just get a big mix of red green and blue colours in the screen - sound but no picture is more likely to be the starter unit on the flat screen.
flat screens have a starter unit - mine went on a samsung but under warrenty

Monitor goes blank less than a second after turning on.


I start my computer and turn it on, and everything looks fine for about 1/4 of a second and then it goes black while leaving the power light green. I can only see the screen again after turning it off and on, but that's only for another 1/4 second. What's up?
I got my rosewill flatscreen as a hand me down from my father. I've had it for several years now. Was working fine until a month ago. When I turn the computer on the screen goes black after 1/4 of a saecond. I have to turn it off and on anywhere from 10 to 20 times before it stays on. I have checked all plugs to the computer and outlets. I have absolutely no idea whats causing this.
