It fizzed, and a big cloud of smoke came out of the back. Its dead, and certainly out of warranty. Now what?
I'd imagine that fixing it would cost much less than a new 50" 1080p plasma. Perhaps give Samsung a call and have them send a tech out? You'd have to pay for the visit, but probably better than trying to self-diagnose and potentially buying and installing the wrong parts.
I don't want FOP, *********! I'm a Dapper Dan man!
I have three vertical, 2" bars on the left side of my screen. They came about after the unit was shut off and on a few times. The bars originally were white but are now mixed with blue, green and red. I'm assuming the display panel will have to be replaced. I appreciate any input on this issue.
The Picture included is with the cable box off to clarify the bars.
