Having problems with your Flat Panel Televisions ?

I have a lg42pc3d plasma tv. its about 5 yrs old has worked just fine till last night the picture went out. Sound works but no picture. Have been on line and the consensus seems to be the x and/or z sustain boards and maybe also the control panel. Wanting to know if that is the problem and how do i check. Where are the best places to find the parts i need and the part numbers? thx



Answers :

Yes usually the x and y sustain boards go. Not always with both fail, but they communicate with eachother...this is why replacing both is "good practice." You can check shopjimmy, ebay and encompass parts for parts online. Just order new replacements...you can tell a bad board usually by burn marks, popped capacitors, etc.




Good luck and thank you very much!drewpalmer04_83.jpg

My Vizio P42 plasma has no picture but has sound. I removed the back panel and removed fuse FS1 on the Y sys board as well as fuses FS1 & FS2 on the Z sys board and they passed the continuity test. I also did continuity on surface mount fuse FS3 on the Y sys board without removing it from the board and continuity was ok and the same with FS3 on the Z sus board. I know that testing a fuse on the board is not the best way but it seems that it is the only way to do it on the surface mount fuses.

I have a SANYO DP46848, 46 inch flat screen hdtv purchased about 2 - 3 years ago. The screen goes dark on the left side (top .25% is ok). It sometimes fixes itself after an hour or so. Sometimes you can fix it by placing your hand on the dark spot for 10-15 seconds. There is a thin horizontal line about 1/4th of the way down from the top with the top of line ok when the bottom of line area goes dark.

Have Protron PLTV-3250 TV and I was told the power supply board was bad. All indications concluded this was the problem. Replaced the power supply board (FSP194-3F01 power supply) and turned the TV on. It has power, but I have no picture. I can hear the sound from each channel, but that is it. I can change the different sources using the remote control and when I come back to TV, the picture (white fuzz or blue screen) will flash for a moment, then it goes black.

Bought a samsung 42' 4000 series tv, its less than 2 years old & the picture went bad looks worse than a really old tube tv watching an old VHS. contacted samsung-they don't care, referred me to a tv repair place (75$ to look at it) who said it needs a new sustain board, will cost 300.00 anyone else hear of this problem? anyway I can do it myself? where can I get a sustain board? why is samsung alienating their customers?

Hi, so I was told to replace my psu by a tech because of what the service manual said. I replaced it and its doing the samething. No picture but sound. All of the readings are coming out correct. I tried to do a reset on the logic but but nothing happens. I can do a reset on the main input board but nothing happens after it resets the TV. The fan on the main input board does not come on at all. Please help. I can control channel, source and volume but still no picture.

Hello. My tv will not turn on. I metered the power circuit as far as I could, and it looks ok. The fuse on the control board is good. The power switch meters good. When the tv failed I heard a small popping sound, but did not smell any smoke from a damaged component. I cannot tell if the problem is with the control board, or with the picture tube. Thanks


It sounds that the power supply regulator section or main board has the fault. Check it with the help of schematics. If you are not handy, seek any technician's support. ... Emerson EWF2006 TV

I have a DP46848 LCD HD TV, over a year old. The picture appears to be made up of several individual panels, maybe 12 or 16.
