Customer Question

my plasma Samsung fades from regular to light. Almost like fog.Every thing works but it flickers and sometimes constant foggy. It was off for 15 days and then it came back to normal. Now it is doing it again. I thought it may be a power issue as several things were plugged in. I unplugged everything and still doing it. Any ideas?

OK, LN46A550P3F is LCD TV and symptoms are failing LCD panel (the screen) unfortunately.
Replacement of screen is required to resolve the problem but it would cost more than new TV price of same size so at this point you would be better off with a new TV instead of spending money and time on this one's repair.
I wish I had better news about TV and I trust my input will help you out. Please feel free to respond if you have any additional questions.
