Question about Samsung SPN4235 42 in. Plasma HDTV
This problem started about 3 months ago and has gotten progressively
worst. TV works fine when first turn on, then as it heats up the volume
starts going up until it maxes out at 100. I did a temp fix by routing
audio from dish box through external amp and speakers. That worked fine
for about two weeks when suddenly the TV menu page started flashing on
and off on the screen. At that point I would need to turn the set off
until it cooled down for a few hours. During all this the button
controls on the TV stopped working and I could only control the set via
remote controller. Last night the set turned itself off and I could not
get it to turn on again even with the remote. This morning I found the
TV on, good picture but with the menu page flashing on an off again. I
tried turning the set off with the remote but nothing happened, so I
decided to try the power button on the TV. As I mentioned, that button
hadn't worked for some time. Guess what, this time it worked and the
set turned off.
My best guess is whichever board controls the set's buttons and infra-red sensor is bad or it has a an intermitten short sensitive to heat. If this is so, can you tell me the name of the board and where to get it. Thank you for any help you can offer.
Honestly,your TV should be still under warranty right?I would have Samsung fix it. TV had a serious problem from the beginning.
