    I have the same problem. I've only had my Samsung HDTV(LNS4051D) for 13 months and the picture goes black but the sound remains. I've called a few places in Albuquerque for repair estimates but it's rediculously expensive. It seems this is a common occurance with these Samsung TVs. I'll never buy another one!

    I have a 50" Smasung plasma and I was watching a movie when the screen went black. Sounded as if the tv was turned off. I could still hear the movie though. What is the problem???

    Same issue- Samsung HPS5050, after 18 months screen goes blank after about 15 minutes of watching TV. Picture is lost for about 4 or 5 minutes at a time and does the same thing until TV is turned off for a few hours. At this time the TV is useless, can't watch it for more than 10 minutes straight before issue returns.

I also have the same problem. I lost the bottom half of my screen (mostly black) with some serious pixelation going on on the left side. Reading from this site, it seems that a lot of people are having the same trouble. My warranty ran out a month ago. I called Samsung, and they did supply me with an extended 90 day warranty!!!!! Thankfully or else we were out a lot of money and probably couldn't get it fixed. If you have to pay, you are probably looking at a $1000 + to fix it. At least Samsung was gracious enough to extend my warranty. It gets picked up today for repairs. I hope they take care of everyone on here too. Good luck

Could be the plasma screen itself or the Y-main board along with the Y-scan buffers

You have no brightness? You have sound or not? I am willing to help but need a little more information---if no bright and or no sound it could be the power supply board which can look fine but be bad.

You when looked at power board did not see any puffed up caps?

these are really puffed up but some will be only slightly so---take a good look as the tops must be perfectly flat.

We have a Samsung PS50Q91HDX Plasma Tv which is not quite 3yrs old. Ever since we have had it, it turns itself on & off at random but this is not the main problem. Last night we were watching a show...

This is weird. I also have a plasma 50" model PS5Q91HDX and on the 5/02/11 the screen went blank when my friends daughter was watching a Wiggles DVD. The image kept coming back, flashing a scene or two before going black again. But the sound is perfect.

I wonder what is going on? Is anyone else having trouble with their 3-4 year old Samsung 50" TVs???

Sounds like main board failure and or power board failure. You need to contact manufacturer and describe problem for tech support. Some of the parts in Samsung TVs have lifetime warranties. Change out of two board is about an hour job and service call is usually comped. Hope this helps. J

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
