Where to located Boards


I'm having problems locating replacement Boards.
You posted to replace both the Y-Main and the Y-scan boards at the same time for repairing the AKAI PDP 4294.
Is is just fixing the boards with new parts or do you actually purchase a whole new board.
Please help. I am new but ready to learn!

I would suggest you send your boards or the complete chassis to a company called PTS Electronics.

They will do a complete test of the boards and replace the defective components.

No picture but I do have sound, where is the picture tube located

It does not if a Plasma as indicated here have a picture tube. Repair in this type of set consists of checking voltages, checking wave shapes with a scope and eventually replacing boards to locate the issue and fix it.

Common boards that fail are the power board and the main board.

Not in most cases a do it your self repair.

Consider at least having a tech or a shop look at the set and get an estimate for repair.

PANASONIC TH-42PX60U 42 - half of screen not working

I had the same issue. I am going to replace my scan buffer boards. The upper half of mine works but the lower half is black so I would replace the lower Scan buffer board but in case of future issues I have ordered both upper and lower for $44.
The scan buffer boards are fairly simple to locate. Open up back of tv there are two biffer boards identical. The item or product code on them contain letters either SU or SD (Scan up and Scan down)Look up tv parts and item code you will find a place to order or just get the 1 800 number from tv manufacturer.

Tv doesn't power on properly and sometimes not at all

Hello Sir, hi, your TV is in serious order, this could be traced from a failure of the power supply board to the mainboard. This diagnostics should be done by a qualified service personnel and should not be performed by a novice. The process is to locate the problem board, first replace the power supply board, then test, if the board respond then good, but if not, then the problem is on the system/main board, we then replace the main board which controls the sound, LCD, controls and the likes. at this point the TV most likely be powering on. But replacing the two boards are costly, so I suggest you take it to your dealer for proper advice on your TV. if its under warranty, much better. they will replace the entire tv.

Eror code 12-22 then 53-54 in sony pfm-500a3we

Dear sir,

Code 53-54 means 2 fans on the behind of your Sony are not working.
This could effect the code 12/22.

Hint :

First fix the 2 fans.
If they're working , see if the code 12/22 has gone too.

If all the fans are working .... all 5x codes are gone !!!
If the code 12/22 is still present ..... the Sony turns on and off again and again.

In this case it's NOT the power supply unit !!!!
But you need to replace the X-SUS & Y-SUS print-boards inside your plasmascreen.
Located on te main printboard on the left and th eright side.
Replacements will cost arround the € 150,00/$ 100,00 for both boards.

Dis-connect the cables from the boards and un-screw the boards.
Replace the boards and re-connect the cablas and screws.

Problem for code 12/22 has being solved !!!!

Best regards , EuroNet 2000 The Netherlands

Vizio Problems

I will tell you that there are many screws involved in getting to the boards. Suggestion I will tell you about

Keep the screws separate. Take the legs off first, then the back panel. this will expose the boards. The board on the top is the power board, below that is the main board. on the 32" vizio there is one plug that is located "left off center" that is very easy to break when removing from the board. Just beecarefully

Power Up Problems

7 blink error is 8.6 volt error on that model. usually tied to y sustain board located on left side of set looking from back. disconnect y main from power supply and power on and if comes on verify power supply primary voltages located on label on pdp itself. if voltages present you would need to replace that board as not designed for component level repair. however if you find failed components like swollen caps or burnt ic's you could replace those. also when replacing the y main board there are two y buffer boards to left of main board that also would be recommended to be replaced at same time as they work as circuit and replacing one board without other could cause failure to other boards still in set
