I have a HP-R5052 Samsung Plasma. The dog was caught laying on the remote sleeping. The tv had turned on but now has a dark horizontal line in the middle ( about 80% of screen ) and the other pixels seem black. When we turn on the set it starts black and takes awhile for the pixels to light up. It is like it has a snow effect with this dark effect in front. Hard to discribe. My question is could laying on the remote caused it to go into some kind of service mode. Is there a way to reset the set in service mode.

Think about it in reverse. If your dog broke your tv set, maybe god is trying to tell you something.


Seriously though, I'd say with roughly 95%+ certainty that the dog laying on the remote had nothing to do with your set breaking. The dog would have had to have managed to turn on the tv, enter service mode and make some drastic changes, all the while not accidently turning the tv back off.


If we want to involve the dog, I'd say the most likely response was that the dog sensed the impending doom of the tv and went over to lie by it and keep it company on its way out.

LOL LOL LOL Well they say dog is mans best friend. After many searches on the forums I think it is the doomed power supply ie: bad capicitors I have read about. Time to call for service.

If Samsung Plasma is the same as Plasma LCD the dog would need to do this:


mute 1 8 2 power


to turn the TV on in service mode. In a million years with a million dogs each trying 100,000 times per day it could happen.

Technician came out and was measuring the voltages on the secondary power supply board( I think that is what he called it ). The " Ve " would not measure. He isulated that card from the x-main and then it would read the correct voltage ( 100 ). When he pluged the x-main back in the voltage would not read again on " Ve". So we think it is the x-main board which by the way is running real cool to the touch. The y-main was running hot to the touch as he said it should. My question is what does the x-main board controll ? What are the symptoms of a bad x-main? I wanted to make sure with the forum guru's before going on a wild board chase LOL. My tv symptoms are still black screen at start up , take forever for the pixels to start to light up , dark horizontal band that takes up 80% of screen. You can see the picture but it is real snowy and it looks like there is a dirty overlay in front of it.


Thanks very any input
