    I had a similar issue with my Samsung. I replaced the bulb and it quit working completely. I had a Samsung TV representative repair service pick it up and they told me it would cost over $500 to repair it. I found out Sharp flat screen works better and only cost $700 more. I now have a Samsung paperweight out in the garage. Does anyone know where I can get rid of it.

It unusual to have the screen go faulty itself. With plasma screens what goes is a power transistor, and there are 3 or 4 of these on one of the circuit boards. The likely board is the one with the big heat sinks as the power has to be stepped down to a lower voltage before it can be used properly. It is best if you replace all of the power transistors as one may have affected the other. If you are no good with a soldering iron then either get someone else to do it or replace the whole Circuit Board (PCB). Beware there are plenty of people aching to make a quick buck out of people who have no knowledge on this technology. If you want someone else to do this for you then find someone honest. A telltale sign for the power transistors is that they sound a pop when they go faulty. A symptom is a blank screen sometimes showing on standby mode. I would say your screen itself is ok, so sell it on to someone who needs to replace a physically damaged/smashed one if you no longer need it.

Samsung s42ax-ybo1 no images

I have the same issue.
I'm looking for the power supply schematic.
Some components are dead (like U501 and ZD501).
I'm looking for the reference of the zener. Does any body have the schematic or the part list of the board (ref PSPF501B01A) ?

No picture and no sound

simply unplugging the TV and turning it back on if started to work.
if it doesn't then the Trying a new lamp first is reccommended.
After all, you will need another lamp eventually.
Samsung Parts
model HLM507W as two different lamp replacement part. the LAMP for my TV was BP960224A. the replacement lamp listed on the Samsung site is BP960224C which was replaced by BP960224J. the difference according to my supplier is that A part has a brown power coupling and the J part has a black power coupling. hope this helps someone in the future. The couplings are different and a black LAMP coupling will not fit a brown TV coupling.

Replacement is simple, getting the right bulb is tougher. Make sure the TV is unplugged and the lamp has cooled. Looking at the TV from the back there is a lamp cover on the lower right. Remove the single screw, remove the door. There are two screws holding the lamp in, loosen these. Then flip the black plastic handle up at the bottom of the lamp assembly and pull the lamp assembly out.

Note the brand of the buld and the color of the connector (black or brown) and then call to order your parts from Samsung's parts reseller

With set off...mute + 1 + 8 + 2 + power.
Arrow down to "Options" push enter.
Lamp reset and lamp hours should be in there.
Power off 2 minutes or until fan kicks off to exit.

Red convergence way off

I had the same issue as you pretty much exactly and so do others right around this last few weeks so I am thinking that this is a common problem with the product itself.

You can fix this pretty quickly with the link below. I bought it and it resolved the issue.

Picture Problems on HCL4715W

Most likely the convergence ic'd failed. Do not adjust the convergence until the ic's have been replaced. Most likely the ic's are all that failed but all resistors around the ic's should be checked to make sure none of them burned open. It is reccommended to replace both ic's. This is not a difficult repair if you are compentent at component removal and soldering, but a qualified service professional is reccommended.
