Question about Samsung HP-R4252 42 in. Plasma HDTV

1 Answer

Samsung PS-42S5H Folks, I have a 42 inch Samsung Plasma that I bought 2 and a 1/2 years back. Since yesterday, I am not getting any picture or sound when I try and turn on the TV -- connections are fine, also, there is definitely some burning smell when I bring my nose above the panel, particularly above one side of the panel. Pls advise folks, Thanks

Since you smell it above one side of the panel I will guess the right side (from the front). This is where the Y Sustain board is located, it has large heatsinks over the drive ic's to dissapate heat. If the ic's are bad this is more than likely the smell. This board controls the scan of the picture and drives the plasma panel. I would definatly have a technician look at the unit, these are normaly econimical to repair.

Samsung Plasma ps-42s5h has two black lines running vertical with green strip in the middle


Ok we have to resolve the extent of the problem before diagnosing it. Does the black line/green bar show on all inputs and the tuner? Is it visible in the OSD (on screen display)? if yes to all of these questions, it could be a panel drive problem or a bad plasma panel. A picture would help diagnosis

I have sound but no picture. 42" plasma. i bought 4 years ago. last week the botom half of the screen started flashing back and forth between the picture and all black, but we just came home and now it is...


Sounds like you need a lower Y-DRV/BUFFER board (996500032640) and a Y-SUS board (996500032643). Part numbers listed are for models which use a Samsung Panel.

42 inch ilo tv black picture sound only


If the fuse burned out the the tv would not turn on at all. When the tv is on is the back light still on? If its not its probably the back light that needs changing. If its on then its one of the circuit boards.

42 inch LG Plasma TV - Lost picture


Our LG 50" plasma tv screen went black after a popping noise but still had sound, after great diliberations decided to take the back off and have a peek!
We unplugged the tv and tested the fuses (there were three we could see) one had blown, the one on the left as you look at the back of the tv it also has one above it. We wrote the code/seriel number down and took the fuse to the electrical wholesalers Maplin and bought a pack of 10 fuses for £1.29 replaced the fuse in the tv and everything now fine!!!!!!
Hope this might be of use to anyone whose lost the picture after a loud popping/snacking noise but still has sound.
