Well, my TV just went snap crackle & pop.....I thought it was going to explode off the wall. It has power & sound but the screen is nothing but snow.

Tech coming out in a few days as its under the 12 month warranty. It was simple to setup the support call......BUT I guess you get what u pay for.....oh well I went cheap as it was only for a bedroom. I'll spend the extra couple hundred next time & get another Panny.

Curious to see what failed. I only use mine for about 10 hours straight every two weeks when we have grandkids. Mostly used for Xbox ans Wii.
No issues.

Tech ordered PCB Y & PCB X....also ordered main board......said protocol requires him to replace these first b4 they replace the panel which it might be.

He's gonna swap Y/X.......if no go then the main.....if that doesn't fix it he will order a panel which will take 3 weeks for the part.

That pretty much sucks. The Tech should have had these parts with him if that is the next common repair step.
I would think just replacing the TV would be less expensive.

Did the Tech say how often he has worked on this TV?

Old thread here, I bought a 50" RCA plasma Jan 2013 at B.B. new in box clearance for $359.00 (great price for a NIB 50" plasma) it's a discontinued model, works good no issues,excellent picture says made by On corp on the back.

I've not had the back off so not sure what's in there but I imagine it probably has Samsung stuff in it like the OP's set. it does have 4 HDMI inputs though so that's OK looks decently made.

TCL was making the RCA sets for a while but terminated the brand/trademark licensing agreement so they could expand TCL brand in US .

not sure who actually made this one On corp is listed as a South. Korean company but the set was made in China . so looks like ON corp. found an alternative manufacturer.
.
RCA brand and trademarks are owned by Technicolor .S.A formerly Thompson S.A. and Sony Music Entertainment.
On January 27, 2010, Thompson S.A. changed its name to Technicolor, re-branding the entire company after its American subsidiary.
