Samsung HP-R4252 42 in. HDTV screen black outs and red lines

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.

Help!

    I have a similar problem with my samsung HP-R4252. I purchased it about 2 years ago. I serviced it once, about one month after I purchased it. At that time, it was covered by the manufacturer's warranty. They came to my house and replaced the main board. I did not extend the warranty since I thought the problem had been fixed. After 2 years, now I have similar problem again! The picture came on and off, and now I see lots of red lines all over the screen. I called the local service shop that samsung pointed to, and they are asking $150 for inspection only. They never told me the cost estimate but I am sure the actual repair cost would be way over $500, and I think it is better to buy a new one. So frustrating..

    Purchased in 2005 just over two years old. In the last month, the unit began flickering now the top and bottom halves of screen will cut out for several seconds vertical red dots dominate the screen and solid black patch along the bottom left of the screen. I called the tech line and was informed it is out of warranty I knew this however I am looking for a fix. Not a satisfied consumer it breaks down to $50.00 to operate for every month it worked. I also was referred to the local certified Samsung tech. The closest one is in Garden Grove 100 miles away. So I will be $150.00 service call then I am guessing a $600 dollar plus repair. I will be $750.00 more into it with no guarantee for the work. I guess Samsung has there money rest assured the replacement will not be a Samsung. **** manufacturer.

    I purchased the HP-R4252 two and 1/2 years ago and have the same problem with half the picture blacking out and rend lines. Called a TV tech and he stated it is the plasma screen and not worth fixing.

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.

Hi andrew, its not a big problem.. Decent TV. but the pixels are DEAD. that means you have to recover them by fixing the LCD. this would cost you around £40-60 for a 32 inch TV. hope this helps!

I have a problem with my Sony Bravia. The screen is cut in half with a fine black line. The top section is the picture that continuely rolls and bottom section is lines of colors. It is 9 months old.


Depending where you got it It's probably still under warranty.I know Bestbuy usually offers 1 year free.My tv had red lines running through it and they said it was something to do with a climate part that they did not have so I was sent to pick out a new Tv.Good luck

52" Samsung that the top half of screen goes black.


the HDTV has a heat-related problem check your fans. Do they remove heat? the vertical chips paint the screen from top to middle and, middle to bottom so; your top to middle vertical chip is overheating as is your video chip; that is why you have "glitter" in the back ground. get rid of the heat or, bye,bye TV.

I have a Samsung 50" plasma, that has been blacking out over the last 6 months. A 9/2005 set. Now its practically unwatchable as it happens 3 times in an hour. Its not heat related - I have a high volume 9" fan activated on TV power on. Turning the set offf/on usually makes it come back for a now short while. Considering to go put it in the back of my pickup and park it in front of Best Buy and discourage Samsung purchases. This is the 2nd Samsung TV I've purchased (the other a 32" tube) I gave to my folks a couple years ago and its gone bad as well. Samsung product may look good, but their video engineers are not.

Verticle lines on screen


This is a very easy fix. Your cable box is not grounded correctly. To fix this you need a AC Plug adapter. This will change your TV ac plug from a 3 wire to a 2 wire. This may sound funny, but trust me on this. I have fix a lot of TV in NY doing just this.24001fc.jpg

Red Dots


You can get rid of the red dots by adjusting the V-scan voltage down, it's on the panel sticker inside the unit, you can find the test point on the DC to DC pcb, and the adjustment pot is on the same board, lower it as you watch the screen and only lower it enough to rid the screen of the dots
