It looks like its issue with the horizontal deflection board.

Look for your horizontal deflection board, by opening the TV,the one with the flyback,
Have the entire circuit board re soldered (just give a touch with a soldering rod and lead)
Now check whether it works

If you still face problems,please leave comment, we will solve your issue
hope this help,

1994 Buick Regal 3800 shut off periodically and now won't turn on

Sounds like you need an internal inspection of the engine. Valves, lifters, rods. pistons and rings etc. One of the worst things for cars is to let them sit for years.

Mitsubishi ws-55513 HELP!!!

Same thing happened to me.On the signal board there is 4 surface mount transistors. There is oneright by the input board (BA09), i would check the corresponding capsand diodes2_bing.gif close to it also. I would replace all of the 4 transistors.If this SMT starts to go you will see wavy lines in your picture thanit will go away in 3 min or so and get worse over time until no pictureis seen. When it totally fails you will have no inputs what soever butyou will have an OSD screen and when you choose DTV you will get ascrolling picture.

I would suggest to call Samsung to get the Plasma repair under manufacturers warranty. The flickering will not go away until the hardware failure is corrected.
Good Luck.
