Question about Samsung PPM42M8HB Plasma TV
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
