Question about Samsung Televison & Video
When you are in 'TV' mode press the MENU button on the remote. Click on 'picture' then scroll down to picture options and press enter. Scroll to the bottom and click on 'Burn Screen Protection'. You then need to turn off the 'Auto Protection time'. After this, it is a good idea to go to pixel shift, turn it on and set values 4, 4, 1 for Horizontal, Vertical and Time respectively. (You can set your own options though). XD. Jacob.

I have Philips 50 inch plasma TV purchased almost exactly 3 years ago. Completely out of warranty. Paid 1999 bucks for it new. Now Plasma TVs similar to this are 800 bucks. I figured the cost of a repair tech coming to the house would be around 500 bucks.. so I decided I could "do no harm" and look at the power supply. Sure enough, two 3300 uF caps were swollen.. I am far from a true electrical repair person, and if it were not for the caps being swollen, would have no idea that they were bad. I am however a little bit skilled in soldering. So I ordered replacements for about 8 bucks. The caps were actually only 1.50 ea. but the min order fee and shipping brought it to about 8 bucks.. I got them from studiosoundelectronics.com . They came in today and installed them... to my astonishment, my TV works as good as it did when it was new... I must say that I am dissapointed in Philips.. and will never buy another product from them. If it is out of warranty.. they will not even talk to you.. I don't think it is too much to ask when you spend 1999 bucks on a product from them.. I expected my TV to have more than 2.999 years in life in it. Thanks a million to this site for providing soulutions for folks..

welcome to fixya!
without doing voltage checks, my best guess is this:
Plasma hpr5053 or hps5053 models will burn out a buffer board or both, there are two buffers and the Y board.
I usually change all 3 at once, but if on a budget you can try to remove one buffer and see if you get half picture (upper or lower)
this is something only a technician should attempt. the boards cost $200 each (buffers)
$300-$400 (Y board).
if you actually get half a picture the Y and one buffer are good, a bad buffer usually burns out the Y board. and in really bad cases the panel is bad also (not common, but possible)
For part#s , specific help you can post a model# , but again this is a repairmans job not something the average customer can fix.
hope this helps

Testimonial: "thank you sounds greek to me and costly but I guess I have to do what I have to do-----have you ever heard of a video IC board?"
I have a Phillips 50 inch Plasma. About two months out of warranty the top half of the screen would go black. Sometimes when we tapped on the back behind the upper right hand corner the picture would return. I did some research online and found that there is a Main Y sustain board (much like a mother board in a computer) and connected to that board is a upper Y Buffer board and a Lower Y buffer board. According to my research these boards seem to be the source of the problem. I am assuming that the upper buffer controls the top half of my screen and the lower controls the bottom. I removed the back of my TV (about 50 small screws) and searched for these parts by part number. Surprisingly all of the parts in my Phillips are made by Samsung. I found the parts on ebay at shopjimmy.com. I decided to try replacing the upper Y buffer first. I ordered it from shopjimmy for about 100.00. When I received the part I started to remove my upper Y buffer and realized that the new part was slightly different. The part number was the same but the REV. number was slightly different. The new part was missing a small white connector that connects the upper buffer to the lower buffer. I sent it back for an exchange for the right part with no problem. Ok so here is the interesting piece of this little adventure. When I started to remove my upper Y buffer I removed the screws and started to pull on it to loosen it. When I noticed that I had the wrong part I pushed it back into place and put the screws back . My TV has worked perfectly since I did that, with my original part. It has only been about two months, but if you are in the same situation it might be worth a try.
