    I have a samsung plasma that has 2 vertical columns of green/black static or “snow” that goes away after about 10 minutes. I took it apart, adjusted the VSCAN and made it a little better, any suggestions on what could have failed?

    I have a 59 inch Samsung plasma Television about five years old. The picture is now stretched wider resulting in lost picture to the sides as well as the top and bottom. Can this be fixed?

    Hmm–That ISNT a 'Y' Board yer plum!

    Those boards are called– BUFFER BOARDS! The 'Y' as you seem call it (Y-SUS,or correct name,- Y-Sustain board) is the big board the buffers are plugged into having the big heatsinks on….
    I dunno–Guys watch a few Youtube vids, maybe replace a cap or two and then THINK they are TV Technicians, when All they actually are is board changers, Anyone can do that–Even my 87 year old Mother!!!

    I am beginning to agree with you on the quality of Samsung products. I have a few that have been trouble free. I do however have in my shop right now, 3 Samsung plasma sets. 2 have blown buffer boards where on one the chip burnet up completely, and another with a shorted buffer. Ordered a new (used) buffer from shopjimmy, and wouldn't you know the replacement board is bad, bottom of the screen looks like your one here on the top.  The 3rd Samsung the y main board exploded, literally, capacitors blown to smithereens and semi's split in 2.

    I have a 56 inch Samsung plasma about 5 years old.  I have a couple issues.  First when my tv has a purple line that shows up near the top about three inches wide and goes across the screen, on white backgrounds only.  The next problem just started and my tv turns itself off and then turns right back on again.  It did it once this weekend and twice last night.  Any solutions?
