How to Troubleshoot a Samsung HP T5054 Plasma TV


The Samsung HP plasma television can suffer from a variety of different cable connection issues and video input inaccuracies. Fortunately, you can troubleshoot for each of these problems even if you have no unique tools on hand and may not have any previous electronics repair experience. By following a few simple steps, you can possibly avoid the expense of having to call a professional repairman.

  • Eliminate the simplest possible problem by checking the power cable connection for the Samsung HP plasma screen. Make sure this power cable is not loose or disconnected from the power source.

  • Check the video connections for your Samsung HP plasma screen. You will likely be using the HDMI connection provided by this TV, as it is the optimal method for establishing a video connection between the Samsung television and your cable or satellite box. The HDMI cable has a square black plug on either end of the cable. One end plugs into the "HDMI" port on the back of the Samsung HP, while the other end plugs into a similarly labeled port on the rear of the cable or satellite box. Make sure the cable is securely plugged in at these connection points.

  • Look over the alternate video connection for the Samsung HP plasma screen in the event you aren't using an HDMI cable connection. You may have made the connection using component video and audio cables that may have become disconnected or may have simply been incorrectly plugged in to begin with. A component cable has two sets of red, blue and green prongs, one on either end of the cable. There are matching colored ports on the rear of the cable/satellite box and the back of the Samsung HP TV. Make sure that the prongs are matched up with the ports by color, and that each connection is secure; otherwise, you may experience audio and video errors when attempting to use your television.

  • Cycle through the available video inputs on your television if the problems persist. Different video inputs on your Samsung HP plasma coincide with different functions, such as controlling the DVD player or game system, if one is attached. The incorrect video input may be selected, resulting in no TV signal. Press the "Input" button on your Samsung remote control to cycle through the inputs until you reselect the correct one.
