Lines on Screen, Can't take picture



This is what happens when I take a Picture, seems like a loose conection.
Sometimes its perfect and other times this happens.
This image appears on LCD screen also when taking a picture.
Sometimes it flicks back and forth, from normal screen to the above.

Hi I have a samsung plasma PN50C550G1F I havve right now 2 vertical lines that seem to change color with the background picture. Tv powers up fine sound work perfect.


Vertical lines on a plasma TV are caused by either a failing x-buffer board or a loose connection at the flex cable between the panel and the buffer board. Sometimes just removing the flex cable, cleaning it, snd reinstalling it will fix it.

Flickers after 5min of use. Perfect sound, turns on fine and excellent picture quality when in blue screen menu mode. Why?


This intermittent problem is very difficult to rectify. Just contact the authorised service center for Hitachi at your town. The work is really a skilled one, that a user cannot do it with ease.

Pulsating Picture


Your set might have loose conections ,a few places to check is the horizontal driver transformer and the convergence IC's,they develop loose conections and need to be resoldered,if you are familiar with tv service and soldering is something you could do ,some conectors might get disconected when you flip the board,but if you are not too familiar I would suggest you call for assistance from a servicer.Besides the places I mentioned I am sure the set has other overheated places that need resoldered as well.Let Us know how it goes.

Switches on then off then on then off...


The first thing to try is to see if your set has loose conections,you need to remove the back and tap in diffrent areas of the chassis to see if it reacts,if it does you'll know soemthing is loose and it has to be resoldered,if you are familiar with tv service you will have a place to start checking but if you are not too familiar seek the assistance of a servicer,the repair should not be expensive.Let Us know how it goes or if you need more information.

Distorted picture


It seems you have a loose conection in the Horizontal deflection circuit,I will start checking the horizontal driver transformer then any overheated areas in the power supply and overall chassis.If you are familiar with tv service you know where to look but if you are not be safe and call for help,try no to use the set or the problem will be worst.

Green screen with almost horizontal zigzag lines


Is good that you hit it and it reacts,very likely you have loose conections in different places but for the distorted picture you need to check the horizontal driver transformer and flyback after that is corrected you need to check the complete chassis for loose conections.Take your time.Good luck.
