NEC Plasmasync 42MP2 Long startup?

I have a NEC PlasmaSync 42MP2, and for some reason, it takes 15-20 minutes to startup when you turn it on. I can hear sound when I turn it on, but the picture doesn't come in till about 15-20 minutes. Anyone know how I can fix this? Thanks in advance!

Re: NEC Plasmasync 42MP2 Long startup?

If you're NOT still under warrantee you should at least open the TV and check the board where the components are mounted and resoled any that look bad. If you are using a surge protector, try connecting the set directly to the wall outlet. In your case it could caused by a blown fuse, a leaky diodes or a bad solder joint at the horizontal drive transformer. All can be replaced at a local electronic or hardware store and they're easy to replace If this does not correct the problem, you may need to have your TV serviced. good luck!

NEC PlasmaSync 42MP2 TV Stand required

I picked up a wonderful three tier glass table stand for this exact T.V. at Wal-mart for $189.99, This is fairly inexpensive compared to some of the options out there, but its well worth the money. The thing that is great about this is that there is no holes to drill, no making sure its level. You just put the setup together yourself, attach the bracket to the back of your t.v. then hang it up on the stand and your good to got. It's very durable and you can swivel left to right. If your looking to spend less, there are a million different places on the web offering wall mounts for $29.99 on up.

NEc plasmasync 42mp2 - dark screen and in the top few pixels show the image

It's either the Y-main or logic board but you would need to do some extensive testing to know for certain which one... It's not the screen..
I would strongly recommend you take it into a shop and have a Tech test it and give you an estimate..

Same problem here. PX-42VM2A (NEC PlasmaSync 42MP2) Turns on (status light green) then goes to standby mode (status light red) after what sounds like some electrical relays clicking over. Opened it up and no glaringly obvious problem, but i'm no components technician so... Any ideas? Anyone want to buy it for parts or need a specific part? email me: 318noire<at>gmail<dot>com
