Re: broke tv

From what I have read - its a faulty Y SUS board. There seems to be replacements around at USD35 but I have yet to lay my hands on one

My samsung 550 plasma will not show a screen with I turn the tv on, stays black. I have to cycle power at least 3-4 times before the picture will show up. Once it does, it seems to kick in and out of HD....

Unfortunately although Samsung make great screens they do have a big problem with power supplies. The one in mine went 3 times before I replaced the screen. We have a lot of Samsung's at work and we replace 5-10 power supplies per year. If it's under warranty it'll be done at no cost otherwise you're looking at around $250 (Australian) unfortunately.

Cost to fix screen on 42 inch lcd

It is actually easier than most people think. Try taking it apart and see if it is something you could do. Much cheaper than a new tv.

My plasma screen was kicked and i was wondering if it can be repaired and for what price?

When this type of damage has occurred, many problems will arise. For example if the screen is cracked...the replacement may exceed the cost of a new TV. There are lots of possibilities that other internal damage has been done. Best idea is, to shop for another TV! Sorry..this is the best advice. Thanks for asking and show a few hands of support!

Broke screen

The mirrors are just mirrors, any paint/glass store can get new ones cut for you if you take the pieces of the old one in. The screen is going to be a hard one though. Actually if you can find (which I am sure you will be able to) another broken tv, very seldom is there any damage to the screen itself. There are two parts to the actual screen though, a tinted piece that dims the picture and a frosted piece that catches the image. Good luck!

It's not to complicated, in the newer TVs as well as other things, when you first turn them on the diagnostic circuits kick in [that the first relay you hear click] it sends a signal (low voltage) to all the circuits to check them and make sure there are no problems. If it gets the proper returns from each circuit it kicks out and the full power relay kicks in and powers your set up. This is done to protect others circuits that might be effected by a flaw in a different circuit. What started as a small flaw in a component has gotten worse with use which is normal. Your set is kicking the diagnostic circuits and they are detecting the problem and shutting it down. You have problems with your power board, if the diagnostics circuits were not in place and full power hit the set the power board could possibly put triple or more voltage to some section of another board, thus burning it out also. That's why they started using the diagnostic circuits on TVs, Computers have had them for years. Late model car - etc. I would take the power board out of it and go to shop Jimmy's and enter the part # which will be on the board and order me another one and pop it in and kick back and watch TV again. I don't know what a power board would cost for it but "shopjimmy's" carries high quality boards at a reasonable price. I do caution you on buying a refurbished board, they are tempting but I have never and I mean never seen one hold up very long. As a matter of fact I will not put one into a TV or anything else for that matter. So there is light at the end of the tunnel and it's not the train this time! I only work on the kind of TV that plug into the wall or run on batteries, therefore, I've seen a bunch of them in14 years. Don't worry about getting the wires mixed up because one thing about TVs is a harness or plug will only fit one place and that is where it belogs you can't cross them up.
