Re: blinking plasma tv

Hi alan,well any tv can be fixed but at what price,your fault sounds like a capacitor proberbly on the inverter board needs replacing,i have come across this problem quite a few times and it will take me 10-15 mins to diagnose and repair this type of problem and it is very inexpensive for the part.
Is the fault worse when the tv is first switched on from cold or does it get worse if the tv has been on for a while???
Hope this helps.

Vertical Black line 3 inch width on Plasma Samsung 42C96HD after 2 months of use

I also have the same problem I phoned Samsung today to explain the tv was only 14 months old, they didn't wanna no because it was out of warrenty by 2 months. I am getting a black solid line down the left hand side of the screen. I ended up phoning Dixons were we bought it from, they have told me to get an independent engineers report done & send the report to them within 14 days. Dixon told me it was a known problem with Samsungs. They said they will fix it free of charge if they can if not they will send vouchers to the same value of the television. So beware stay clear of Samsungs.
