Re: samsung HP-R4252 42'' PLASMA

I am having the same or similar problem with my 2 year old HPR4252. Replacing the Y Main board did not help.

I have a Samsung Plasma 4252 and i have red horizontal lines running across the top section and lower sections of the screen. here is a couple images:

I have the same problem on my set. I had a repair technician out today and they wanted to replace the circuit board that the buffers are connected to and the adjacent board that drives the buffers. If you remove the back panel the buffers that are in line with the distorted areas on the screen are running super hot. Estimated price with labor was $700.

Samsung Plasma Lines and Colors on Screen

first is it still under warranty through the manufacturer samsung is verry well with wanrranties
It sounds like it is most likely the plasma gas itself and in that case it would cost way more than what you could purchase another one for.
by the time you have a tech come out and fix the plasma gas tube itself yould be looking well over 1000

Samsung Plasma TV - picture has 6 sections of horizontal lines

All I can say is when you watch T.V. the plasmas run off of plasma gas and when you leave something on for so long it burns in the screen. I have the same T.V. and when watching like the weather channel it leaves lines but they go away. If yours are permanent then you can't do anything, but it may help if you go on your remote and go to "menu" then look for "setup" and scroll down with the arrows on your remote. Look for "screen burn protection" and select "white screen". This will make your whole screen white and it may take out the lines. If you let it sit white it won't hurt it. All one color won't hurt, the only thing that hurts is like bright white lines in front of a dark background. Just give your T.V. a break from time to time ESPECIALLY ON VIDEO GAMES. T.V. shows that are HD usually have their channel icons that move or are very dim and they won't hurt. Just go to what I told you and let it sit about 20 minutes, if that doesn't help, then the T.V. you have i believe comes with a 2-year standard warranty and if it's under warranty take it back if you have the reciept. If no reciept then call 1-800-SAMSUNG.
