Picture takes a long time to come on

I have a 42 inch Samsung Plasma TV. When the set is turned on, the picture takes at least 15 to 20 minutes to come on. The set has only been used a total of 10 times since purchase but the warranty has expired.

Re: picture takes a long time to come on

Need more info on the unit.
Model, Serial # and Version # on side of unit. It sounds like you either have powersupply problems or cold solder joints in the power supply. Resoldering board may solve your problems.
Let me know, Have a good day. Jay
