We were watching the TV and it just went blank the service man told me
that the parts are almost all back ordered two to four months. Samsung
customer service department said if I fax them the diagnosis they
would send me a new TV to replace mine if the parts were un-available.
My warranty expired a year ago. the service guy is coming tomorrow
2-27-08 I"ll see what happens and let all of you know. maybe a new TV
for the lemon I bought. This could solve everyones problem with Samsung.

Hello, Since I do not have a picture of your screen, I can only guess. If it looks something like on the figure below, that can be fixed.
In the foregoing picture, the screen is split horizontally. The black cursor is in the lower half of actual screen. You can restore the full screen by pressing [MODE], and scrolling down till the last line Full Horiz G-T. Move cursor on Full and press [ENTER]. Then press [CLEAR] to go back to the main screen.
To start ensure that you removed the cover from the lens.
Also remove battery and put it back in place to reset the camcorder.
If you get only sound on playback, connect the camera to a computer or TV, or play the tape on a different camera.
If you get picture in there, then the camcorder is recording, but the video playback does not work because of a faulty LCD display.
If when you play back the movie on a different camera, or using the compute you still get no picture then the camcorder is faulty.
Faults that can cause black screen can be:
Faulty CCD sensor.
Faulty controller board.
All this faults are not easy to diagnose and fix, if there is a fault , then it is better to take the camera to a repair shop.
I have an older Mitsibutishi 52" HD 1080. I recently upgraded my cable box to DirecTV HDTV. When I change to format to view in 1080 the TV goes from full screen to what seems to be wide screen with a black bar on the top and bottom. If I change the format to 480p I get a full screen; but the picture has a "redish tint" over it as if looking through sunglasses...I tried everything in my TV manual even call the cable company. Any suggestions?
It does sound like a power supply problem but that can be misleading because a problem somewhere else in the TV can be "holding down" the power supply. This can usually be determined by using some isolation techniques.
