    Same as others.

    Had the TV for about 3 years and couple days ago, when we were playing a DVD, suddenly the screen went blank but sound was still OK. Any idea how to fix it?

I repaired mine. It had the same problem. Could be power supply. If you open it then maybe I can help.

We have a Samsung PS50Q91HDX Plasma Tv which is not quite 3yrs old. Ever since we have had it, it turns itself on & off at random but this is not the main problem. Last night we were watching a show...

This is weird. I also have a plasma 50" model PS5Q91HDX and on the 5/02/11 the screen went blank when my friends daughter was watching a Wiggles DVD. The image kept coming back, flashing a scene or two before going black again. But the sound is perfect.

I wonder what is going on? Is anyone else having trouble with their 3-4 year old Samsung 50" TVs???

The picture went out on my plasma tv last night. i can hear the channels changing and the volume works just no picture. is that a blown bulb?

It may only be a power distribution problem which comes from age and leaving it on 24/7. This should only be a $100.00 fix unless you have a friend in the field.

The high voltage power supply for the plasma display has failed. It may or may not be on a separate board that could be replaced the owner. If you find a separate board, it may have its own fuse which you could check for continuity with an ohmmeter.

No pic but sound :/

You are having a high voltage problem. Quite possibly in the horizontal deflection. I would check the horizontal output and regulator transistors.

The best way is to contact your service provider and ask them to trouble shoot guide you, there should be a way to reset or diagnose the receiver or if you prefer go back to the place you bought it and ask for a replacement, You should still have the manufacturer's warranty, check that as well.
