Question about Samsung HP-R4252 42 in. Plasma HDTV
I have a two year old Samsung HPR4252 with red horizontal lines accross the screen making the picture quality viewable but poor. The screen is visibly divided into 6 horizontal sections of equal size. The Y main board was replaced but did not fix problem. Any suggestions?
I just had my HP-R4252 repaired on 12.05.09 with a similar problem. The picture is covered in horizonal, broken lines and the color is predominately red. They lines are grouped together in large bands across the screen.
The tech replaced the Y-Buffer boards (Up) and (Low) in about 20 minutes.

It's easy to take apart the tv there is many examples on you tube I have the upper red 2 inch bar across the top of the screen i researched and it looked like the y sustain board. But it was not I put in the brand new board and same problem. If the y sustain board is broken you have no picture. But there is an upper and alower board attached to this. The upper is for the top part of the screen and the were is for the bottom. Unfortunately I learned the hard way and I will now have to replace the upper buffer meanwhile my tv is sitting in my leather couch.

A professional saw my TV today and said it was the buffer and was going to cost me $600 to fix. What is the cost of a buffer and could someone with limited knowledge replace it? Is it similar to installing a hard drive or mother board on a pc?

Similar problem. Technician ran diagnostics and said it's a tcon board. Tech needs to see if the tcon board is integrated into the panel or a seperate board. Unit is still under warrently so we'll have to see how this plays out.
