our Samsung screen will go blank intermittantly. Sometimes none of the buttons on either the remote or on the side of the TV will work and the only solution left to us is to unplug from power and replug the TV.

We will also get what seems to be digital distortion on the screen momentarily then screen will return to normal. When this happens the source we are connected to will display

Hi,

I'm Gina, a Moderator for JustAnswer. :)

Thanks for your question! I'm sorry that you haven't received an answer yet. The response rate on JustAnswer is usually over 95%, but sometimes questions go un-answered when:

1. the question seems to request an answer for something that cannot be explained online adequately
2. the Experts that are online simply don't have the resources to answer your question fully
3. the question may be unclear

Please feel free to re-word your question or add additional information you might feel helpful for the Experts to assist you.
If you would still like to receive an answer from an Expert, just let me know, and I will do my best to assist you by finding an Expert to help you.

IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU NEED A MAIN PCB. I CAN GIVE YOU A LINK TO PURCHASE THE PART OR A ESTIMATE OF THE COST OF PARTS. I WILL NEED YOUR SERIAL NUMBER OR THE FULL MODEL CODE WITHT THE VERSION NUMBER THEY SHOULD BE ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE TV.
