    I have a Samsung wall mounted plasma screen TV (42").  The picture went off leaving only the sound.  When I turned the TV off then on. (several times over 2 days), I never get a picture.  The red light at the bottom on the bottom right side of the screen does not come on.  The sound is fine!  Can this be fixed or is the TV trash.

    TV has sound/w no picture. Let it stay on for 45 to 60 minutes and turn it off I have a picture. Some times the picture is green, red or blue. Turn the TV of and on again the picture is fine. Sometimes the TV has no sound or picture but 3 flashing lights. Turn it off and on many times there will be sound and no picture and the process is repeated. Any solutions? The TV is about 8 years old.

No picture but has sound

The problem can be caused by a bad sustain board (Ysus Zsus) , the popping sound is often caused by a capacitor blowing up.
The TV must be taken apart and tested before eventually replacing sustain boards.

TV Picture Goes Black

I had the same exact problem.
I removed the bulb and cleaned it. There is a small screen at the top of the bulb and it was covered with dust. Once it was cleaned I replaced the bulb and it solved the problem.
Thanks to those who posted the solutions
