Question about Samsung HPT5054 50 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television
Thanks for using FixYa. Don't think Samsung should be responsible for this as a plasma TV is a very hard working device. It is working harder than any TV that has been built before, and as a result it produces a lot of heat. 75% of technical problems in plasma TV's are caused by overheating problems. You’ll need to check the power supply board first for any swollen/bulged capacitors. As power supply board is the hardest working board in a plasma TV, it develops voltage to supply all components, high current + high voltage. All this is only recommended if you have electrical expertise & know how to solder/re-solder components as these units contain high voltages even when switched off. This kind of issues in plasmas usually occur after 3-4years. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

Capacitors are part of every board, including power board. It is a very common problem for caps to overheat and burn out. Also some have relays that can go bad but not very common, usually it is the caps that go bad. Look for burn marks or swollen caps for a sure sign of a bad one. You can purchase an analog meter to test the caps. That is likely the problem. All tv's have them, not just lcd.
