I have a Samsung hp-r4252 plasma hdtv and I am getting lines all over the screen I am capable of fixing electronics but I just would like to get an opinion on which board or boards I need to replace. Thanks for any help

The Y-buffer is bad, replacement of the Y-buffer is necessary to fix this. Easy enough to do yourself. You will need to open the set up and take pictures and we can help you locate where the Y-buffer is.

In this case, replacement of both is necessary. Before you do this, verify the voltages on the panel sticker. If you need help with this, you will need to post a picture of the Y-main board; this is the board which the Y-buffers connect to

You have two Y-buffers; they are the left hand boards in that picture with the orange ribbons exiting them.

Part number LJ9x-xxxxxxA (A=any letter) will be written on the boards somewhere.

We need to check the voltages which will go to the new buffer board are not out of range and that they will not damage the board again and cause the same symptom.


There is a board which connects to the power supply under the right mount bracket, there should be some points marked Vs, Vset and Vsc on there, do you see them?

Yep... Looks like on yours Vsc = Vscan.


You have a digital multimeter?


Set meter on the highest DC volt scale, put the black probe on the chassis of the TV and the red probe on the Vscan, then the Vset pad. Note the voltage in both conditions. Careful not to slip the probe. Vs can be tested later.

OK, they are both good. There is also Vs. There should be a test point marked Vs on either the sub board or the main power board. Be careful when probing Vs, unlike the other rails, it has a lot of energy behind it. If Vs, Vsc and Vset are all good, a new buffer should be all you need.

A little low, but not going to cause any problems.


Part number LJ9x-xxxxxxA (A=any letter) will be written on the buffer boards somewhere. That is the code you need to order by.


Places to order: ShopJimmy, eBay, other parts shops.

Since you have a picture, even if it is distorted, the Y-main is good.


$110 is pretty steep, but it appears to be a common issue so I guess the parts are rare.


Out of interest what is the LJ9x part #? I will see if I can find some cheaper for you.

In general seems to be quite pricey. Perhaps check local Craiglist etc for any of these models with smashed screens... I've been able to get them for free before, plus you get a spare set of boards in case something else is at fault.
