I have had the Samsung PCK5315RX for about 6 years. Not exactly the most reliable TV ever. About two years ago, I had to have the power supply replaced. The latest problem is that the video freezes as soon as the TV is turned on. The audio is fine but the video locks into one frame that's all distorted. When I turn on PIP, the PIP window video isn't froze (the main picture is still frozen), but the picture is in black and white. It doesn't matter what the video input is; DVD, satellite, over-the-air are all the same. I saw a mention in another site's posting that it might be related to a bad color chip. I'm no TV expert so I have no idea if that is right.
This started occuring around the time the power company had to replace a faulty underground power line to our house. No visible signs that the TV recieved a power surge, but I thought I wuld mention it.

I think it is a degaussing problem which is due to magneic effect.
if you can
1 check any magnetic thing is mot close to tv.
2do not change the direction of tv while watching.
3call tech to degauss it by a coil called degaussing coil.
you tv problem is intermittent have a tech resolder you tv circuit.also have him check the power supply you could be having problem with the component there.probably the regulator diode or cap.good luck
Its Sounds like Convergence Circuit,If you take the Back off and look on the right side you should see a Board with Big black Ics Mounted beside a Large Heatsink,Mark the wires where they go and Make sure the POWER is Off Pull the Board out and Inspect the Connections from the ICS,you find Circle Breaks,They need to Be resoldered and That should fix the Set....
