Question about Samsung HP-T5044 50 in. Plasma TV

1 Answer

Samsung HP-T5043 blank/black square in center of display

I have a HP-T5054 mounted on the wall. It was working fine. I know have a black rectangle in the center of the tv approximately 27 x 15 inches. At this point, it only seems to occur on channel 2 and will go away for about 45 seconds if I hit the channel 2 button or change the station monemtarily. If I watch a different station, it doesn't occur. Any suggestions?

Turn off the closed captioning. it is set to a text mode which only certain stations use with their closed captioning. use the tv remote menu key and find closed captions and turn it off

Blank Screen


I had this problem on my 42" Philips. Just got it yesterday and worked fine on the tv stand. As soon as I mounted the TV to the wall via wall mount system, I had the exact same issue you did. Figured it out today.

The wall mount was putting pressure against the center of the back of the tv (tv set had a slightly rounded back plate, and the mount was a flat plate). As soon as I put spacers (part of the wall mount hardware set) between the wall mount braket and the tv so there was no contact except at the mounting holes, the tv worked fine.

My theory is the pressure pushed the tv back plate against some board components which caused them to overheat (no air flow); or put pressure on internal connectors. I dont know.

Hope this helps, may not apply to your situation.

I have sound but no picture on my 32 inch LCDHD TV/DVD. Picture flashes for a second an then the screen goes blank. Thanks Bill


This problem is caused by one of thee problems.
1) The inverter board(s) is bad.
2) Power to the inverter board(s) is off.
3) The CCFT(cold cathode fluoresent light) is bad.

Since the picture flashes for a second you may also check for loose connections for the above items.
Here is a simple test you may also try. With the TV on take a bright flashlight and press it against the screen. Look for an image around the edge of the flashlight. This will verify that an image is being sent to the screen.

Lg lcd tv screen goes black but the sound still works 52lg70 screen goes blank, sound still works. i can change settings but cannot see the menu so the tv is still working there is just no picture.


This sounds like a mainboard problem. Unless you do not see a back light flash when you turn on the TV, which may mean it is an inverter board problem, this is most likely fixable by replacing the mainboard.
