Question about Samsung HP-R4272 42 in. Plasma HDTV
Hi- I have had a Samsung HP-R4272 42" plasma for about 3 years now, so it's way out of warranty. A few months ago, it bagan to flicker for the first few minutes it was on, and here and there there would be a few pixels that would misbehave (light up bright with one color), but again, only for a few minutes, and never in the same spots.
Two days ago it started to show a really bad image, with these bands here and there under the whole image, and this mess of red distortion all over the screen. I have seen what i thought were other colors in the distortion, but really it almost all red - like spray or bleed. Changing inputs doesn't seem to make a diff. I can see disturbance through the black when there is no feed. I generally use the RBG component, but the vid input on the side gives the same effect. I am attaching a pic or two I tried to take. I am hoping this is some video board of some sort that failed. Anyone have any ideas or pointers? I would be eternally grateful.
I have a very similar problem. My HP-4272 is about 3.5 years old. Started off with the bottom half going black for a couple of seconds. Then the top would flicker. Now I get the following picture... Not sure if I need to replace boards (Y-buffer lower, upper, and/or Y Main Board)? or if something just needs to be "adjusted"...
