    Do you have any additional information? Make and Model of your TV, age and what happened would certainly help. Also have you tried another power plug and checked your breakers?

Try adjusting the contrast or brightness in the settings to make it brighter. A lot of TV's differ from who to do this so look in your tv's manual or go to the manufactuar's website and download the manual as a PDF.

Panasonic Viera plasma suddenly shut off and wont turn back on and when off it has a dark line on screen


Try disconnecting all HDMI cables and plugging the TV into a new wall outlet. If the issue is resolved, it may have been caused by a small power surge from either your wall outlet or one of your source devices.

This problems ur tv are having only can be two causes 1) The Y-Sustance main tuner logic board or 2)The tv Plasma screen panel itself it is slowly leaking radiaton and dying,if it is the tv plasma screen panel itself it is dying than the tv not worth repairing because by replacing the plasma screen panel itself will cost the same as a new tv itself.The Y-Sustance board-that the tuner main logic board that take in the tv incomming broadcasting signal cable.Tries websites like Shopjimmy.com,Ebay.com to buy a whole new refurbish Y-Sustance main tuner logic board for replacement.This tv problems are 50/50 between the Y-Sustance main tuner logic board or the very exspensive plasma screen panel itself.

TO GET THE DIFFRENT BETWEEN LCD VS PLASMA


LCD
LCD stands for liquid crystal display. These types of displays have been around for awhile and are commonly used with computers. One reason for their big popularity is the ability to produces a better picture than CRT monitors but also being much thinner.
Pro’s
  • Low Energy Consumption – LCD monitors use very low amounts of power. This is why it is very commonly used in battery powered devices.
  • LCD screens also reduce the amount of glare on the screen which can be very beneficial if your TV is in a room with lots of light.
  • If an image is left on the screen too long, LCD screens are less likely to experience the image being burned into the screen. If this does occur, it’s easier to repair than other types of TV’s.
Con’s
  • The viewing angle of an LCD TV is typically not as great as Plasma but the difference is not great enough to make a huge difference.
  • LCD TV’s can sometimes get dead pixels which aren’t typically covered under warranty. Although they are very small, they can become very annoying.
  • Brightness levels aren’t as great as Plasma and it’s not possible to display darks quite as dark.

Plasma
Plasma technology hasn’t been as widely used as LCD in previous years but has become very popular in large HDTV’s. Although they have historically been more expensive than LCD TV’s, they are becoming more comparable in price.
Pro’s
  • Brightness and color are the major advantages of Plasma TV’s. They produce rich colors along with very deep blacks.
  • Their wide viewing angles allow more people to be able to watch TV comfortably.
  • The pixels of Plasma TV’s are lit individually unlike LCD screens. Because of this feature, the pixels can be completely turned off to display truck black colors.
Con’s
  • The lifespan of a Plasma TV is typically shorter than other types of TV’s. The lifespan can be extended by turning down the brightness of the screen.
  • Plasma TV’s are more susceptible to screen burn-in where an image is “burnt” onto the screen when left on the screen too long such as a network logo in the bottom right corner of the screen.
  • Plasma TV’s require a panel of glass to cover it. This glass can reflect light and make it difficult to see the picture. If placed in a dark room, this typically isn’t an issue.

Black Screen


Ok, this is probably what has happened, you say that you have played games on your tv, well the thing is with HD and Plasma Screen tv's is that when you play Hi-Res games on them the games backdrop will burn itself into the screen, causing the screen to turn dark and not reveal the correct picture it should. People need to learn about this!!!!! Playing games on HD and Plasma tv's will screw up your resolution!!!
