Question about Samsung HP-R5072 50 in. Plasma HDTV
I have a 50" Samsung Plasma model: HPT5054X/XAA version:AQ25 and it turns on and has sound but the screen is black. What could have caused this and how can I fix it?
It's a pretty common problem. The no picture but sound problem is usually the y sustain board. I've replaced 2 on mine now. The 680uf 35V capacitors usually are bulging because one of the power transistors went and took them out. This has happened to both of the y boards I had. One time the failing y board took out the buffer boards too, and once it did not. The fix is super simple and anyone with even the most rudimentary knowledge of computers or electronics can do the labor yourself. You should do the simple stuff first by just doing a quick test with a multimeter. Just check the power coming to the y board. After that you can just remove the y board by removing 3 cables and like 3 screws. Plug in the new board and it's done! You can source the parts from a place like shopjimmy or discount merchant. 3 boards were like 200 bucks. 1 board is like 100 bucks. Labor took me 15min. Think about that the next time an electronics repair place charges you 1000 dollars. Of course they check everything (Yeah right) and warranty their work (I don't) but if you check the service manual it states that this is the most common repair. Look for the Canadian manual online. Hope this helps!

I have the same exact Samsung Plasma tv and that happened to me. It was the Plasma screen and the y-sus board (sold together from Samsung). Repair was $770. Well worth it if you would ask me! Beets paying that much again for one.
