Hi Dan, Well I have a 2013 Samsung pn64f8500 Plasma
. It started about 2 weeks ago and would shut down while running. Maybe a minute or 2 later would power back up. sometimes it would stay on for a few hours or times shut down again after 5 minutes and do the same. Now I have it in the basement, back is off checked all the capacitors visually and all look ok. Changed the Y Sustain board only because I had one and it power right on. Keep in mind it would not power on prior to that. Watched Netflix movie 3 days without and issue. Then popped in a blueray looked up into an HDMI
played for 2 hours and shut down. Got it running again by disconnecting and plugging back in. Watch netfix again for 8 hours no issue, plugged into a different HDMI for a blue ***** ***** and 3 hours later lost power. Any suggestions??
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: It will go to a black screen, the power light on the front of the TV is not lit, to me meaning it really just didn't turn off, it just went dead.
