Question about Samsung Televison & Video
Do you know what would cause the "Y" sustain board to short circuit on a Samsung 50" plasma television(PS50C96HDX) that is only 2 1/2 years old?
A couple of days back the tv screen went black but there was still sound,the tv repair shop has said the Y Sustain board has a short circuit and will need to be replaced along with the upper and lower buffer boards...which is gonna cost quite alot to fix.
Any ideas what would cause it to short circuit when the television is not very old?
The problem is heat!!! If the tv has fans they should be checked for normal operation,although on the early samsung models there were none, and the problem is that the panel drive buffers are getting to hot due to inadequate cooling. This is most apperent when tv is mounted to close to the wall, also external fan blowing on the rear left side will dissapate the heat. It is a problem on early Samsung and Electrograph 42 " plasma models. Hope this helps.
