There was a reason it was free.

You can check with a TV repair service, but it will likely be cheaper to buy a new one than fix this one.

Picture Problems On 50 Inch Philips Plasma


You plasma still under manufacturers warranty. Most electronic devices have one year warranty.
The failure in your TV can only be corrected by repairing it.
I would suggest to call philips and ask them to find you an authorized repair center near you to get your TV fix under their warranty.
