    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.

Hello! I have a PDP Samsung TV and, suddenly, this lines are on the screen...does anybody knows what could cause them and if there is any way to fix them? Thanx!!

No model number?? I have a suggestion. Obtain your model number. Go to ebay and enter the model number into the search engine. If you get a bunch of electronic components specific to your model, there's a good chance they are a good clue to what is wrong. I did a DLPTV last year this way Bought a $200 component and it was a perfect fix. Not scientific but it works.

I have a Samsung TV Model S42AX-YB01. The tv acts like it is turning on and off by itself. I have unplugged it, but that doesn't work.

Fault with its main board. Short circuited component/s at it. Contact any service technician; or the authorized service center. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. . In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.

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) ?

Top half of screen goes black

Sounds like your having problems with your Y-main(upper buffer) is getting too hot. The IC's located on this board are really bad about going out a lot. If you take the back cover off your Plasma. U will see that the manufacture of the panel is Samsung and the panel model is probably S42AX-YB01. you should be able to purchase the board. probably will run about $ 150.00.
Hope this helps
