    ONE: Check the line cord. Wiggle both ends near the molded part.

    TWO:Do a hard reset by unpluging all the cords for 4hrs and then plug it back.

    THREE:The whacking test is to just bang or smack the set with your hand
    on the back, side, top, etc., to see if there are loose connections or
    cold solder joints inside that are acting up. If so, the banging should
    knock them back to normal and the set should restore. You might have
    to use some creative banging and some have had to put a book or
    magazine under one corner to torque the chassis enough to get it to
    work reliably.

    If the problem still persists then like i said before,you will have to get it repaired by a technician.

    The TV is shuting itself off and on because the power supply is bad or the convergence circuit is bad.
    they are the most common to do this.the problem here is the age of the
    tv. a repair cost would range around $300-$400 this is a lot to put into
    a old set.
    You can try my troubleshooting steps first to see if that helps you.
    If it is new under warranty then please go for or repair or just replace it.This is the only solution to fix your problem.

    I don't need any details now.I have given the solution to your problem please go through it.

  • Priya darshan Apr 05, 2008

    As i said before Tv shuting off and on automatically is a common problem.This happens when the power supply is bad or when the convergence circuit is bad.
    Regarding the black stripe problem from top to bottom you can try resetting all of the cables and connectors. This is a
    communication problem between the processing board and the display or
    the display is bad. Lets hope for the bad connection.

Black bar running from top to bottom in the screen.

There are horizontal and vertical relays in plazmas that go out over time and cause this to happen , You can get an estimate from a local tv repair service in some cases they can give it to you over the phone. Good luck.

Line in center of screen

if the line is about one inch wide you may have a chance that the address board has failed, if it is only 1 pixel wide then there is a really good possibility that the plasma panel itself if bad, this set had a 2 year warranty from samsung, you might want to give them a call,,they are very customer satisfaction oriented
