Same problem my tv loses bottom of picture

I have an older Samsung HPR4252 plasma that the bottom of picture keeps going to black intermittently. It has been going completely black for several years but only for a second. Called Samsung when it first started and they seemed uninterested even though it was in warranty. Never could get anywhere with them so I learned to live with it... Now it is just doing bottom of screen and seems to stay longer...

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.

Black line


The plasma display screen is made of a matrix of elements connected to cables along the side and top. On your unit, some of these many, tiny connections are making contact intermittantly thus losing the elements in that area. These contacts are held in place with just pressure and if that is disturbed, you lose that line of elements. Try squeezing the cabinet of the TV on the outside at the top in the area of the loss and see if that makes a difference. May have to go inside and see if the contact assembly is disturbed or warped or something.

Screen Problem


I have been trying to fix one of these tvs and found out from a repair man that the lower half going blank means a problem with the lower buffer. and that is also what the manual I downloaded says.
have you checked that?
