Question about Samsung PN51D550 51 3D HDTV Plasma TV
The screen is cracked and there is sound but no picture. When the repair man fixed my parents screen on the same type of TV it cost them about $800 is there any where else I can purchase a screen so I don't have to pay THAT much on a stupid screen?
2/3rd of the total cost of a Plasma Tv is with its screen itself. Just contact the nearest authorised service center for Samsung, to know the exact price of it at your countty.

I had one broken a few months ago. I got a couple quotes.. it was about $200 less then a brand new one. I'd just buy a new one.
For the new TV I'd pickup a screen protector for it. My son threw a toy at my TV the other day and I nearly had a heart attack from the flashbacks. Thank God I picked up one of these a few weeks earlier. It stopped it. LCD screens really break easily as you know. http://www.tv-armor.com

LCD screens are monolithic (one piece) components. They cannot be repaired, they can be replaced. One site I found for replacement info is http://www.screentekinc.com, they even have DIY info if you are so inclined. There are many other sites; do a search on "lcd repair"

All I can say is when you watch T.V. the plasmas run off of plasma gas and when you leave something on for so long it burns in the screen. I have the same T.V. and when watching like the weather channel it leaves lines but they go away. If yours are permanent then you can't do anything, but it may help if you go on your remote and go to "menu" then look for "setup" and scroll down with the arrows on your remote. Look for "screen burn protection" and select "white screen". This will make your whole screen white and it may take out the lines. If you let it sit white it won't hurt it. All one color won't hurt, the only thing that hurts is like bright white lines in front of a dark background. Just give your T.V. a break from time to time ESPECIALLY ON VIDEO GAMES. T.V. shows that are HD usually have their channel icons that move or are very dim and they won't hurt. Just go to what I told you and let it sit about 20 minutes, if that doesn't help, then the T.V. you have i believe comes with a 2-year standard warranty and if it's under warranty take it back if you have the reciept. If no reciept then call 1-800-SAMSUNG.

I had the same problem with my Samsung LN26A450 LCD TV. I found the following YouTube video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mm51C_RDIZE titled "Samsung TV Repair - Part 1 of 2) (also watch Part 2 of 2) which shows how to easily fix the problem. The problem is bad capacitors on the power supply board. My TV had seven (7) bad capacitors - all 7 had dark stains on the ends from leaking electrolytic fluid and one (10V 2200MFD) was blown with bulging ends. I ordered 7 new high-temp (105 degrees C) aluminum radial capacitors from DigiKey.com matching the Temperature, Capacitances and Voltage Ratings for each damaged capacitor that I removed. I followed the instructions in the video except I used desoldering braid ($3.99 at RadioShack) to remove the solder attaching the bad capacitor leads to the power supply board. Once you wick up the old solder from all sides of each lead wire using the desoldering braid, the bad capacitors are easily removed. Total cost of repair including soldering equipment was less than $50. Thanks to “The Professor” for posting the video and saving me $400.
