Question about Sampo PME-42S6 42 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television

1 Answer

Blue and green lines. no color

I was given a sampo PME-42S6 the other day. It works well when I attach it to my laptop via the DVI cable, but when I try hooking it up to my cable box, it has blue and green lines up and down the picture, and the picture itself is almost devoid of color. This is the case whether I hook it up to the coax, composite, s-video or component jacks...

Any ideas?

I have the same exact tv this sounds like a previous problem that we experienced we resolved ours by plugging into a grand video console. Good luck! Tammy woodpros01@yahoo.com

I have a Sampo 42 inch plasma multimedia display monitor model PME-42S6 (s). I got a blu-ray player and connected it via the AV1 inout. The screen is now green and red. What can I do to fix this?


If you have a Blu-Ray player you should be connecting it via HDMI, which is the only way to receive a full HDMI picture on your television. But you may connect it via the component inputs if you do not have an HDMI cord. The component cable consists of five color coded cords of (1) red and (1) white cable for the audio, and (1) blue, (1) green, and (1) red cable for the picture. Connect the Blu-Ray using this cable and you will be fine.

"No Signal" floating notice on Blue Screen - No other picture


If all connections and the tuner have the same issue, you either have a power supply issue or a bad digital board.

Sampo PME-42S6 black screen


I have the exact same problem and sent an e-mail to Sampo in Taiwan today (March 3rd) with a technical explanation and description of the problem you have reported. I included information on the status of the LEDs inside the unit. My suspision is that the power distribution board has developed a fault. I am going to try to find out if a schematic is available to repair the board or if a new board can be purchased. I will provide an update when I have one. Glenn
