Hi all, I have an old Samsung PS50Q97HDX (if i remembered correctly), and I was wk seeing if it is worth getting it repaired. I love this tv, and yes itís only 50mhz and yes itís old, but itís a very sentimental tv if you can call it that, haha! I know. Iím weird. Anyways, Iíve been away for 5 weeks - and when I came back I went to watch a dvd. At first I thought either the tv is really dark, or it could be the sunlight is too intense for the room, both likely, but it was noticeable enough for me to play with contrast, brightness, realise it wasnít a setting(I thought it may have weirded out and set one too high or low), so dismissed it. When I finished the movie, I turned the dvd off and found this:
Faulty Plasma - is it worth repairing??
Is this a nail in the proverbial coffin, or is it worth investing in a repair? Also - why has it gone like this - what causes this kind of screen dark/patchiness??
Many thanks in advance!
If Iíve done something wrong in this post maybe I can get some help with this also, as this my first time posting.
