Question about Samsung HP-R4252 42 in. Plasma HDTV

1 Answer

Verticle lines on screen

I inherited this TV from a neighbor for free who was moving overseas and could not take the TV with him. The problem with the TV is that it has a lot of small verticle lines and one think line, probably 1" wide. The smaller lines start to go away after the TV has been on a while but the thick one does not. Just trying to figure out what the problem is, and how much it will cost to fix it or if I should just sell it.

If you could post a digital picture of this tv I can make a determination, it could be the panel or one of the boards inside the set

I hooked up my skywire and did channle surchtwo times i only get 3 channles why

First, I'm not a Skywire Tech.
* Interesting question. I'm an "Old School" electronics tech (retired) so I checked out this 'Newfangled' TV antenna.
* So are we bringing back the old 'rabbit ears'? Looks like it. But there is a big problem; Who is still broadcasting "over the air"? Here in Hawaii they stopped "Air" transmissions decades ago. They still use it as a back up in the event of a Hurricane or other Cable/Telephone wire failure. But most TV's are digital now and do not pick up analog channels.
* This year all my analog TV's stopped working as Oceanic was bought out by Spectrum. They came around searching out "loose transmissions" from homes with broken or unhooked cables. Unhooked or old TV cables will broadcast a weak TV signal that a nearby neighbor can pick up using an "Air" antenna hook up to a TV. So by "listening" for these Cable signals the neighbor can watch the same channels. (depending if they cable owner has an active account.)
* in a crowded area like a city with lots of buildings. It's probable there are lots of old cable connections that have been cut. Smaller towns may be spread out too far to catch your neighbor's cable signals.
* Spectrum did an area wide sweep checking for these "stray" signals and installed filters on to our cable line and everyone else that was inadvertently "broadcasting".
* I found some reviews from consumer reports and others that may help you understand the question.
* FYI; Elon Musk is sending up "Free World wide WiFi" system into orbit within the next 5-10 years. So you may see cable and Internet channels go the way of "Radio" (you still get car radio stations free, right?) Ahh, I remember our first TV in 1959. Only had one B&W station at the time. And it was free!

We got a free Sony TV from a neighbor moving out of state. No owners manual or remote, but its worked fine until today. This morning the 'sleep' and 'timer' lights are both blinking, alternately at one...

Unplug tv from wall socket for minute to get its timer function reset, then replug back in and turn it On.
If problem still not solve, let me know.

"video" letters/number on screen

You need original Sony TV remote to disappear on-screen display by pressing Display button on that remote.
Tip: You can try any Sony TV remote to fix this problem. Borrow a remote from friends, neighbors like that.
