    Did you figure out the problem. My Sony Plasma has the same problem. I heard a pop and poof, the image was all green and monotone.

    My TV has lasted for almost 19 months. While I was watching TV it made a lout popping noise and then the screen went black. Sometimes I can see a monochrome picture but overall the TV is worthless now. It's outside the warranty so I'll have to go to a local repair shop to see if it's fixable.

    Same exact thing jus happened to mine, 20 months old and they say it is under warranty, waiting on tech, they say it may take three weeks or longer.

I had this same exact issue yesterday. I own the same TV model and here is what SONY had me do to get the picture back. Ultimately the picture comes back, but it will be very dim and needs repair. Most likely a power supply issue. Try these steps:

-Press power off or leave with standby light on for 5 minutes (wait the full 5 minutes)
-Unplug TV / Press top buttons 5 times each to remove static from system boards (yes, each button 5 times each)
-Wait one full minute and plug TV in and press power on

Happened twice to me - waiting for repair to come out now. My warranty paper says I have two years of on-site repair. Why is yours only one year??

This has happened to my sony TV now 3 times. The problem is that the tube or fuse in the back blows and then gives no picture. The problem can usually be fixed with a new part that can be installed at your house. However being that this is my 3rd time and has happened with other similar models I have to say Sony probably released a bad model.

SOURCE: samsung 50 inch plasma

I have found the most common problems with the symptom you have described, to be the SMPS PCB. Sometimes the Y Main will cause the power supply to short out and lower a voltage in that area. Your set has a two year warranty. Call 1-800-Samsung to find an authorized servicer in your area.

I have a 50 inch plasma vizio tv. I was watching it then i heard a pop the screen went black and i still had sounds yesterday but today no sound, I called vizio tech support they told me it was the gas...

when you here a loud pop its usually the sustainer boards. Have you checked the fuses on the sustainer boards first to see if they are still good. There is a IC chip under the heatsink and when it gets extremely hot it gives. Also check you power supply board to make sure you don't see any swollen capacitors, leaky or bulged out from the top. Let me know if that helps at all.

LG 50inch Plasma received loud sound then went black

I suggest you guys take your TV's into a repair shop like Sears or Best Buy... The main reason most plasmas go dark is because of decay, but I don't think this is the case. Because what you describe is similar to what happens in LCD's when their back light goes out. Although you can open up and repair the back light your self in a LCD, I would not advise you to do so for a Plasma, because of the hazardous chemicals used in the plasma display plus the fact that plasmas don't use back lighting. And 2 years is way to soon for decay to be a factor. So more than likely a circuit shorted out and the TV has to be opened up to be repaired.

LG 50" plasma tv

call 877-543-8325 this is an LG Executive call center and they will fix this for free. I have a 50" plasma I bought january 2006 which is out of warranty by 5 months. They faxed me and the LG repair shop a 30 day warranty for my tv to cover the repair. Just tell them you heard a pop and in my case the picture is distorted. All they need is the model number and serial number and they should take care of it. No arguing needed.
