Sampo PME-42S6 black screen

Hi everyone. I have hte above mentioned TV and it appears to be in good working order. However, when I turn the main power on, the light goes yellow. Fine. Then when I hit the power button to turn it on, the light goes green but nothing else really happens. Occasionally there is a click or two but certianly no other sound or picture. Not sure if this is something that I can fix or where I would take it that I would not get seriously ripped off. Any suggestions?

    Hey everyone my Sampo PME42S6 also has the same exact problem, however it happened during a flash power failure caused by our electric co op provider. We had the same problem about one month ago and turned the unit off unplugged the power cord and waited about a week before replacing it, we decided to try it one last time we turn the plasma back on and pushed the input button several times and by chance it began to show the blue screen with the hour glass. It worked fine until the flash power failure last night and now I'll have to wait awhile again I suppose before I will know we also had the Tv plugged into the monster HT700 Monster power center/surge protector. If anyone has had any luck please let me know. Thanks, Tammy [email protected]

I have the exact same problem and sent an e-mail to Sampo in Taiwan today (March 3rd) with a technical explanation and description of the problem you have reported. I included information on the status of the LEDs inside the unit. My suspision is that the power distribution board has developed a fault. I am going to try to find out if a schematic is available to repair the board or if a new board can be purchased. I will provide an update when I have one. Glenn

Has been losing black until now seems none

These are the same manufacture as the original Gateway TVs that are known for exactly this. This TV is probably 6 years old now. Not much you can do. Sorry.

Possible TV "Chop-Shop"

Hyundai and I would be surprised is Sampo use Samsung parts. They may have mixed and matched compatible parts. The Hyundai I'm working on has almost Samsung everything. I wouldn't worry too much so long as the service place has a good reputation and stands behind their work. They may have replaced a video board that had different spec ratings.
