Samsung S4253- No Image, Only Multicolored Pixels; Sound OK

On a 2-yr old Samsung HP-S4253 42" plasma, the screen is completely filling with small multicolored pixels and no image, whether from cable box, dvd, or just on without other source. Can you give me some potential causes and approx $ before I have a $150 pickup and diagnostic repair call? I have unplugged and re-plugged to see if there is a re-set but no help.
Thanks.

    i am having the same problem. When i turn the tv on now there are many pinkish fuzz colored pixels dominating the screen. Sometimes if I shut it off and turn it back on it will clear up but then comes back within 15 minutes. Also, there is no image. Really sucks!!!

The pink fuzzies come from a faulty Ymain. If you are looking at the set with the back off, its the largest board on the left side. Get the part number from the board and replace that one first. You may have to check the buffers or the logic board if this doesn't solve the problem but 9 times out of 10 when the picture is firing random pixels, its due to an overload in the Ymain (also called the YSUS).

    the board itself should cost you less than $150, get it off ebay or at shopjimmy.com

I had the same problem. Luckilly I had an extended warranty. Repair tech said it blew three main boards inside and to fix it out of pocket would have been more than the screen was worth. Hope this helps.

Typical problem in some video/audio board. However, if this only occurs on a particular video input ie: dvd or vcr, it may just be your wire connection.

Blue static on screen


I have the same tv with the same blue spots. Called Samsung and they directed me to Samsung Canada. Samsung Canada referred me back to the US and the US wants me to make a copy of my purchase order and send it to them. What a pain!

You would need to have a technician remove the back of the TV and make the adjustment. There are 2 small adjusters that they change to adjust the voltage.
