Question about Samsung Televison & Video
EHT arcing takes place inside the TV. Clean the circuit board and inside components. You can use vaccum suction pump. Take care.

I have a similar problem on my CRT computer monitor (AcerView 76c). It is an old screen and I think it is just at the end of its life, much like your TV. Having some background in physics, I would be pretty sure that the problem is with the cathode ray tube's vertical deflection system. The horizontal deflection electrodes are working while the vertical one is not. This results in a display of a single horizontal line (or in my case, a few superimposed) in the centre of the screen. Where both X and Y (horizontal and vertical) deflectors fail then the electron gun firing would result in a single bright spot in the dead-centre of the screen.
So really, we have no choice but to move on and buy a new set as repair is probably just as, if not more, expensive than replacement with a new device. Seeing as your post was in 2007, I hope you managed to solve the problem.

I recently had this same issue. If you remove the speaker pannel in front of the set, you will see a block with 6 knobs on it, just to the right of the center panel. This is called a focus block. 3 knobs on top which control the voltage going to each tube, and 3 on the bottom are for fine tuning focus for each tube.
If your problem is the same as mine, it is a convergence problem. and due to the fact that the picture is turning off, says that one of the tubes is not getting enough power.
NOTE: BE CAREFUL NOT TO TOUCH ANYTHING ELSE BUT THE FOCUS BLOCK, THERE IS EXTREMELY HIGH VOLTAGE WITHIN THE TELEVISION, AND CAN CAUSE SERIOUS INJURY.
1. Make sure the screen is blank, ex video 2 with nothing on. It's easier to tell.
2. very slowly, one at a time turn up the knob on the left top, should control red, untill you start to see lines come on the screen, then turn back just till they dissappear, and you see a black screen again.
3. continue with the second knob on top, just the same as the first.
4. And continue with the 3rd knob on top right just the same.
5. when you're finished, turn off the set, then back on, let is set for a min or 2, then hit the FLASH FOCUS.
If the problem persists, it most likely is a IC chip.
Best of Luck

I had this problem on my 42" Philips. Just got it yesterday and worked fine on the tv stand. As soon as I mounted the TV to the wall via wall mount system, I had the exact same issue you did. Figured it out today.
The wall mount was putting pressure against the center of the back of the tv (tv set had a slightly rounded back plate, and the mount was a flat plate). As soon as I put spacers (part of the wall mount hardware set) between the wall mount braket and the tv so there was no contact except at the mounting holes, the tv worked fine.
My theory is the pressure pushed the tv back plate against some board components which caused them to overheat (no air flow); or put pressure on internal connectors. I dont know.
Hope this helps, may not apply to your situation.

If this is CRT TV, you need to change the LOT(line output transformer) to fix this issue. This issue is due to overage of the television.
