sounds like you may have a high voltage arc and / or leak . better to let a manufacturers qualified technician have a look at it this time . ask for an estimate after diagnosis and before repairs are made. factor age plus repair cost v/s a replacement tv . also in the area where i live most in shop repair estimates are cheap or even free . field repair estimates are definitely not . all tv parts can be replaced but, screen replacements can get expensive . barring neglect , abuse or a significant power surge you should not be having these problems on a tv so new. double check your warranty. most electronics come with 1 year on parts ,90 days on service. some warranty limitations are not allowed in certain states. also contact the manufacturer . in my expierence some of the better companies have honored an expired warranty partlialy and sometimes even fully on a relatively new product . after all they do have reputation to lose or keep . just be courteous and if your lucky they will be too. but if all else fails, i personaly prefer lcd flatscreen . oh , about the screen crack , clean and position your tv according to the owners manual . some of todays televison components are even more thermaly and chemicaly sensitive than ever . ie; window cleaner can whiten or even crack certain types plastics. finaly if you are not using a good surge protector now may be the time.

SOURCE: 50 " Samsung Plasma TV
I purchased a 50 inch Plasma Samsung TV last June 2009. The plasma screen cracked as well in December 2009. No evidence of physical damage. Samsung first said it was normal wear and tear. So we argued that it was still under warranty. I had the TV less than 5 months. As well they refused to send a technician to look at it because I am from a small town, but they do sell the TV's here. So we sent in pictures as per request of Samsung customer service. Then then changed their story and said it was physical damage. To top it off, the customer service rep refused to even talk to us anymore to try and explain their decision.
So after a month of fighting and getting nowhere, we went to the business where we bought the TV. They told us they would fight Samsung over this issue. After a week they told us the same thing. So now I was supposed to just accept the fact my TV was broken and walk away, however, the fight was not over. My girlfriend messaged the head office of the company from which we bought the TV, and they said they would try and work with samsung to resolved the issue. Two months of waiting to find that Samsung refuses to answer them as well. So we made arrangements to have the TV driven to closest city 3 hours away, where it was taken t an approved Samsung repair center. Their technician says it wasn't our fault and forwards the paperwork to Samsung. STILL Samsung refuses to replace our TV. They say they are going to still go by the pictures, instead of listening to the repair center. We immediately launched a complaint with the Better Business Bureau. I advise everyone else to do the same. Get the word out how crooked Samsung really is to everybody.
I started a facebook page to promote this fact. "Samsung is screwing me Around". Please join and tell your story. Invite anyone you know that may be fighting with Samsung as well.
