I had the same problem and had the TV serviced and found that the y board was blown $350 total. The repair guy explained that the board has a hot transister underneath that slowly leaked onto the board, but says that they can not get Samsung to admit to the problem. Works fine now but only have a 90 day warrenty on the parts.

Most likely it sounds like a Logic Board problem. The Logic Board is what controls images on the screen. It's a somewhat expensive part to replace. Maybe in the $200 range. Being that the part isn't cheap, best to have a TV tech come to your house to take a look at the TV to confirm the diagnoses before buying the replacement part.

could be a power supply failure or a control issue. I would take the unit to a repair shop and see if they can provide you with an estimate. You could try to buy a replacement power board and install it on your own if you are mechanically inclined.

SOURCE: Samsung HP-S5073 Loss of Picture
usually both boards are involved and unlike PC's board swapping is not the best way to fix it as they need to be setup correctly and tuned. This involves using a device that create a hatch pattern and the convergence is aligned to manufacturers specs.
There are other components that may also be involve and needd replacing ( like capacitors etc)
Those that have attempted to DIY are still here trying to find out how to fix them Often they burn them out trying to save themselves a repairman cost. If it was that easy we wouldnt have to spend 3 years learning the trade.But some people can't be told
please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

Unless you see more red dots, this kind of "defect" is under specifications for this size of PDP, if you do not like it, the PDP module must be changed
