Question about Samsung HP-R4252 42 in. Plasma HDTV
Just over two years old. In the last month, top and bottom halves of screen will cut out for several seconds. Sometimes together for no picture at all, only sound. A couple days ago, some red lines (horizontal in toop 1/6th of the picture and the 5th of six rows in the bottom half) appeared. Also shows up to a lesser degree in the first three columns on the left side of the screen. Salesman at Big Box store said it would probably be cheaper to buy a new set. NOT the preferred option, obviously.
I had the bottom half of my 4262 black out.. i found the service manual on line for $13 and downloaded it .. it has a trouble shoting section that tells what card to change for certain problems. i ordered a replacement card from www.partstore.com for $87.. replace the card myself in about 15 minutes.. it was almost like changing out a computer part.. no big deal.. the lower half out is caused by the BN96-02216A card.. was easy.. 4 connectors and 1 screw and the card slides off 2 other connectors..

Hi: We had this problem under warranty, and tech installed the following to solve it: Parts BN96-02033A, BN96-02034A and BN96-02216A. This solved the problem for 2 years. I now have the upper half going black now and then for 2 to 3 seconds. I am ordering these parts from www.partstore.com and will just plug them in. Better than a new tv.
