Question about Samsung Televison & Video

Unstable picture 2-1/2 year old, 42" Samsung flat screen has a picture problem in that the picture is unstable. By unstable I mean that it appears to move vertically so that you see two images of the same object. Movement is about 3-4 inches. It does this for cable and DVD signals.

    It is 2-1/2 years old



    It is a Samsung plasma (don't know the model number)



    There are no greenish colors



    The problem is constant. When I turned the TV off on Sunday night is was working fine, When I turned it on Monday night the problem was there. I initally thought it was a problem with my cable box, so I rebooted, same problem. Then I checked the DVD player, same problem.

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. A plasma TV is a very hard working device. It is working harder than any TV that has been built before, and as a result it produces a lot of heat. 75% of technical problems in plasma TV's are caused by overheating problems. X, Y sustain, buffer boards controls picture, fires the gas, and many others functions. When either of these boards goes bad common problems include negative image, no image, vertical or horizontal stripes on picture, turns on and than turns off, and many more. You’ll need to open the back off the TV and check for any swollen/bulged/leaky capacitors on these boards and replace whichever has gone bad. All this is only recommended if you have electrical expertise & know how to solder/re-solder components as these units contain high voltages even when switched off.


Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

You need to mention the Make and Model of the TV?

How Old the Unit is?

Is this an Intermittent or Permanant Problem?

Any other Symptom like Greenish Picture or pixels?

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Lines down screen


We have a Samsung LE32A457, whilst we were watching T.V tonight the top halve of the screen suddenly appeared with green lines halfway down the screen and that half of the picture was unwatchable, T.V is 2 years old. We have removed all scart leads but this did not help and the problem still exists, when shutting down a white horizontal line across the centre of the screen appears from this line upwards the picture is faulty. Any help or advice would be grateful.

Tv is about 4 years old. Suddenly developed two


Your plasma screen is made up of 1080 verticle lines and now a few of these lines are not working. This is the screen itself and needs replacing.

Tv screen black


Try a hard restart, which simply means unplugging the power cord of the TV, and replugging it after 4 hours have passed. This technique reprograms the electronics, to a certain extent. If the picture does not return, then you might need the expertise of a repairman.

LG PLASMA TV WITH COLOURED LINES OVER SCREEN


If the Video (Picture/Pix) is gone but you can hear the Audio (sound), then it could mean the YSUS PCB Assembly is gone/kaput/finish. Can replace the PCB, not repair the PCB due to timing circuitry involve. Cost maybe roughly $500 depending where you located. The PCB is located on the left hand side of your TV when you are facing the back (Back open). Might find 3-4 brown flex membrane connecting to the plasma panel. The PCB has a silver or black aluminum heatsink (big) on it.
Good Luck.
