    I have unplugged the TV and I have ensured all cable wires and lines were secure. The TV was working fine for the past couple of years and all of a sudden it stopped working and produced the multi-colored lines. Again sound is present when each channel is changed but NO PICTURE.

I would suggest to use the video and audio inputs instead of the RF input and see if the problem persist, if the failure still there even using the AV inputs then your plasma has a hardware failure.

    Reports from other customers say that there could be loose contacts or faulty grounds causing those lines.

    Abrsvcs suggestions could be the first step(s) to take in trying to fix the plasma.

The problem you are having is not one that an external cable problem will cause. The video signal is converted to a digital stream inside the set. The symptom that you describe sounds like a problem with the digital stream. I assume that the set is no longer under warranty. If that is true, I would take off the back and reseat all of the cables and connectors. The signal levels inside are extremely low and any dirt or dust can cause odd problems. Try reseating things first and update this. We'll look into more detailed things later.

Have you checked to make sure your video connection is still plugged in? What type of connections are you using?

You should try replacing the connections before replacing parts on the tv.

What kind of signal (cable, satellite, etc) are you using?

common problems with these, usually customers here a loud pop. then the screen goes blank. I would try...
Some of these have a 4 pin test on the control board that you can jump with solder to get test pattern. If you get it to do that then these boards maybe good and would replace the control board. if nothing happens, then
the upper & lower drive also the Ysus and Zsus boards all at the same time.
last could be a defective panel.
hope this helps. p/n are on all the boards.

This sounds like it is a problem with the tv. Mitsubishi does have a problem with filter caps in thier regulator circuits. A repair tech will have to fix it.

Samsung 40 no picture


If it is only 6 months old you probably still have a warranty. This is definitely a hardware issue, and unless you are comfortable taking your new TV apart, I would contact Samsung for repair.
