This can be one of two things:

One: The X & Y-sus boards are going out and making a poor picture quality. Replacement would be needed for BOTH. Replacing one would do nothing. (These are responsible for lighting the plasma tv)

Two: Your tv is aging and the plasma has exceeded its' half-life and your picture will continue to get worse over-time. This option would be un-repairable due to the gasses in the tv itself.



Hope this helps and best of luck repairing!

Has audio, but why did screen go black?


since the self generated menu displays ok id say you don't have a monitor problem , could it be that maybe somehow it got switched over to maybe an "open" input port (example: hdmi-2) as this would explain things a bit , also when you tried the other tv did you use the same cables to connect it as the non working tv ? as that also would explain things

Flickers after 5min of use. Perfect sound, turns on fine and excellent picture quality when in blue screen menu mode. Why?


This intermittent problem is very difficult to rectify. Just contact the authorised service center for Hitachi at your town. The work is really a skilled one, that a user cannot do it with ease.

Just bought the Samsung 550 Plasma Hd Tv can you tell me if we just use a regular cable from the wall to the Tv will the picture quality be sort of off.. WE have an HM MI cable from the cable box to the TV...


unfortunately cable does not give you the best quality picture and "fuzziness ' is the reduced resolution being displayed on the tv.
the easy way to check the picture quality is to get a decent hd antenna and scan using it for free hdtv signals, if these are also fuzzy, on all channels then the tv has a problem but if it is only on a few lower resolution channels then its just the way it is until everyone is hd 720 or better.

If you mean the picture froze or formed fuzzy pixelated picture and crackling, this will be due to a poor aerial signal to the tv, but if you mean the screen rolls with pink/white patchwork type squares and shows the picture in the background, all be it fuzzy, then that's the same fault as I am getting and have had to report the fault to LG as I am on my second TV. If it is the problem mentioned in the first sentence, it is happening to our friends in OS and they have been told by specialist aerial fitters, the signal is too weak for the tv.
