Bottom 8 inches of screen is black rest of screen works grate what is the problem this is an lg 60pg60f tv

Replace the TV. It is a plasma television and the bottom 8" has burned out. For future reference, DON'T buy a plasma TV. This is a very well-known issue with plasma TVs in general. Go with LCD or LED. These are more resilient to hot places, direct exposure to sunlight( though it is not recommended to expose it for any real length of time as, this will bleach out the lights and\or the screen and you will be buying yet another TV), and are less expensive than plasma.

I have worked on TVs for years so, please stay away from plasma.

I was wondering if someone could help me find which board could be bad on a Samsung PN59D8000FFXZA plasma TV.

look on the power supply board for burned parts. The board that controls the back light may have some burned parts as well.

Check the cooling fans at the top working well or not. If found damaged, replace it. It is normal that a plasma TV will heat up to an extent. If it overheats, cooling fans should be suspected.

My Phillips flat screen model 42fd9935/17 has started going black after playing for about 2 hours... you can still hear the sound, but the screen is black... the picture will come back after turning the tv...

The cost of getting this plasma fixed is not costwise compared to getting a new TV. I recommend NOT to get another plasma but get either an LCD or LED for the best quality compared with price. Plasma parts can be quite expensive especially for a 10 year old model or may not be available.

I have a flat screen samsung tv and it gets very hot when watched

If your tv is a plasma, this is normal. Plasma tv's tend to produce much more heat than an LCD or LED tv. This is the reason why the place fans on plasmas. If it seems to be much hotter than normal, try to get some ventilation to it, and also check to see if all the fans are still working properly.
Good Luck

Since we've owned our Samsung PN58A550 Plasma (less than 2 years) it has always put out excessive heat. So much that we can only watch it for 2 hours without the room becoming unbearably hot, and that is...

This is very normal. There is a joke out that Plasma screens are an excellent source of heat in the winter. Yes this is the very reason they started making LCD screens they dont heat up like plasma screens. Keep in mind your plasma screen has a gas in it that is ignited or lit by very high voltage. The only thing to do would be to sale theTV and replace it with the same size LCD screen TV. If you need to know the diffrence from a plasma screen and a LCD. The Plasma TV has a hard glass surface when you touch it. An LCD has a soft plastic screen like the one on your laptop computer. Never Touch a Plasma TV when its on.

I have gateway plasma tv srs bbc 50 " get verry hot in the exauste and in the sreen is it normal? think's

Yes,it's normal, a plasma uses a lot of power (over 300W) so it generates a lot of heat - especially the screen.Remember, plasma is an overheated gas so a large screen contains a very large amount of a very hot gas.
