Question about Samsung 50 in. Plasma TV

1 Answer

There is a burning smell coming from the left side (from the back view) which I think is the sustain board. A repair man said the TV isn't working. Because of the P Y board, is that the same thing? When I wouldn't pay the $520 he wanted to fix it, he wouldn't help me. The tv has sound but no picture. Model number PN50A-450p1D. Thank you!

Plasma comes on but picture is bad looks like shinny bits on peoples faces did


Sounds like Your Y SUS and Y upper Y Lower boards are on their way out. Unplug the TV completely for a few hours then remove the back panel look for the Y Sustain board It will be printed on the board next to the Boards Rev number (part number). it it's usually (open back view) In the Middle towards the left side and the Y upper.Lower are the 2 boards on the left hand side. The PSB power supply board is in the middle and next to the PSB on the Right is the X-main. shop jimmy partsstore and ebay for refurbed boards. Or you can pull the boards by removing wire harness ribbon cables and a few screws and take it for a bench test at an electronics/pc repair shop. It's usually not the entire board but a faulty component on them. Mainly the transistors.

No picture and burning smell from left side


Bad COF ic on buffer board. Can usually tell which one's bad. It will look overheated or a hole in top of ic. Look at upper and lower buffer boards to see which ic is bad. Can get from Encompas Parts, Recommended replace y sustain with buffer.

Burning and fan type sound


That is probably the power section about to fail. The burning smell is going to be from overheating components. You will have to take it into either an akai repair depot or a local tv repair and have it looked at. Get an estimate first. The repair cost on this could be cheap if itis obvious and the repair gys are on the ball or it can be pricey if they just replace major parts (typical). Also have a good idea of what replacement cost is so you know if it is worth fixing.

Will drain most of water but will not spin and smell something burning


The motor is probably stuck and burned. Open the door and turn the drum manually. You should be able to turn it easily by hand if the motor is not stuck.

Remove the back panel and use your sense of smell to verify where the burning smell is coming from. The possible source of the smell is the motor or the motor control board located on the left side of the machine viewed from the rear.

Let us know the source of the smell for the replacement guide and for further troubleshooting if necessary.

We were watching tv and all of a sudden we heard a


I had the same problem. We replaced the Y Sustain board. It was under $200 and not at all hard to do yourself. Remove the back of the tv. Make sure you watch what screw goes where. You will see the board on the left side. The number should be on the bottom right corner of the board. Just watch how you removed the board making small notes as to what goes where. Its really not that hard and you can save 600$ or more

On one minute then POP loud noise, burning smell


Loud popping and loss of power is common on plasma TVs and is usually either the Y sustain or Z sustain boards or buffers; in these instances the damaged part will be quite evident.

If this is an LCD you might have degraded insulation on one of the pink/blue backlight power leads causing high voltage to 'arc' to the chassis.

The loud bang and smell is actually to your advantage as in these circumstances the damaged part is usually evident. It'll just be a matter of popping the back off and sleuthing around. :)

Samsung PS-42S5H


Since you smell it above one side of the panel I will guess the right side (from the front). This is where the Y Sustain board is located, it has large heatsinks over the drive ic's to dissapate heat. If the ic's are bad this is more than likely the smell. This board controls the scan of the picture and drives the plasma panel. I would definatly have a technician look at the unit, these are normaly econimical to repair.
