I have found the most common problems with the symptom you have described, to be the SMPS PCB. Sometimes the Y Main will cause the power supply to short out and lower a voltage in that area. Your set has a two year warranty. Call 1-800-Samsung to find an authorized servicer in your area.

I have been having the exact same problem. TV on for 30 min with terrible static, then all of a sudden it is perfect again. I've also inherited a bit of a humming noise from the tv as well. It was suggested to me in this forum to have a tech come and adjust the v_scan and v_set settings down a few mhZ. No idea what this means, but I assume it's a power setting and the tech will be able to take care of this. I will post my results when i have the tech in.

I have this problem too. I have had a technician over to service it twice already and I picked up on a few things he did to fix it. Here is what I learned. the raining pixels has to do with the timing in the circuit boards. Basically telling them when to turn on and off. I would only recomend this solution if you are technically inclined. Remove the back from your tv on the left upper quadrant you should see a small gray dial with marks that a Philips screw driver would fit it. There are three or four of these on the boards scatter across the tv. Each on corresponds to the colors firing in sequence. Take your Philips and turn it to either extream. You should see a your screen go crazy with whatever color corresponds to the dial. Then ever so slowly turn the dial undtil you don't see any more flickering. Do that with each dial and you should be able to get rid of most of the flickering. on the right side of the there is a panel underneath the support bar with orange adjuster. I don't know what they do but they also help reduce the flickering. A word of caution. If you can use something non metallic to adjust these dials. There is a small metal lip to keep the dial from turning too far. If your screw driver touches it. It will fry the dial and your screen will blink red/yellow or blue. and you will have to buy a new board. Luckily they are only about 30 bucks, but I learned the hard way.

Plasma TV has a black uneven splotch in the middle of the screen

hmmm. sounds like the screen might be damaged. You might have to get a new one. But before you do that I would try leaving it off for a while maybe a few hours or so and see if that helps.

I have a Samsung 58"

The plasma TV takes a lot of voltage to power the picture. there are some really big ic's that creat the high voltage and they can shut down if they are overheating or becoming a little weak with age. You may be able to feel heat from one side or the other of the back of the unit. If you can put a small fan near the area where you feel the heat and see if extra cooling will allow the unit to turn off and on easier. If it does I would leave the fan on whenever possible and add extra cooling to prolong the life of the components.

I have a 50" plasma that I replaced in a home. It came with a jbl cinema system, it only has a dvi like plug on it and no other inputs. I opened it up and it has a s50hw-xb02 plasma screen in it I looked...

Just a DVI like plug(HDMI) and no other input , just a couple of boards. That doesn't sound like a tv to me. Most plasmas will atleast have a component/s-video input!

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

When watching dvd having showing or fade background

yes it can be down to signal degradation especially via scart lead, make sure you use a decent scart if you buy an expensive one you can tell the difference. Run a cable from your sky digibox direct to your tv to see if the picture improves.
