    Same thing. Turns on, shows picture for less than a sec, then black. Doesnt matter if it is HDMI, Scart, or antenna.. Seems to be a problem with the tv itself.

My samsung tv picture is off centre with a grey line to the left of the picture can only get a full screen in wide zoom setting which still gives an incorrect picture, i dont use any extra equipment,

A lot of sets do have a way to center or even increase the width of the picture but all require to know the exact model to see if they offer this option or not.

If its a ps42a457p I doubt it has that unless it is in the customer menu somewhere.

No picture, perfect sound, burning smell

I assume this is an LCD tv that you have? I would think a fault has developed on your inverter board with one of the components having burnt out & shutting off the drive to the backlights hence the smell & lines on the picture. It would be advisible to take it to a repair centre to have it repaired to check the burning issue as a matter of safety
