Question about Samsung FPT5084 50 in. Plasma HDTV
Hello to everybody, I own a Samsung 50inch plasma FPT5084X/XAA. I recently began to watch more TV then what I would normally do. I notice that the picture looks more darker than before. Every time I adjust the picture setting for brightness from 45 to 100, after 30minutes later the picture settings would reset itself back to 45. I have to keep adjusting the picture settings every 30 minutes. Does anybody have any idea what is causing this and/or what do I need to replace in order to get the TV working correctly?
I forgot to mention that when I hook up the Play Station 3 the picture quality looks bad. I can see some semi clear lines that run from one side of the screen to the other, and inside those line there's like zig zags in'em. I also notice some green dots/speks/artifacts appearing only when I use the PS3. Can somebody please help me out???

I have this problem too. I have had a technician over to service it twice already and I picked up on a few things he did to fix it. Here is what I learned. the raining pixels has to do with the timing in the circuit boards. Basically telling them when to turn on and off. I would only recomend this solution if you are technically inclined. Remove the back from your tv on the left upper quadrant you should see a small gray dial with marks that a Philips screw driver would fit it. There are three or four of these on the boards scatter across the tv. Each on corresponds to the colors firing in sequence. Take your Philips and turn it to either extream. You should see a your screen go crazy with whatever color corresponds to the dial. Then ever so slowly turn the dial undtil you don't see any more flickering. Do that with each dial and you should be able to get rid of most of the flickering. on the right side of the there is a panel underneath the support bar with orange adjuster. I don't know what they do but they also help reduce the flickering. A word of caution. If you can use something non metallic to adjust these dials. There is a small metal lip to keep the dial from turning too far. If your screw driver touches it. It will fry the dial and your screen will blink red/yellow or blue. and you will have to buy a new board. Luckily they are only about 30 bucks, but I learned the hard way.
