Question about Sylvania 6842-PEM 42 in. EDTV-Ready Plasma Television

1 Answer

Monitor won't work

Our Sylvania 6842-PEM won't work. It seemed to spark out the back, went dark, and won't start up again.
We have what we believe are the correct replacement capacitors, according to previous posts regarding this problem, but we are not sure which board, and where on the board they might be located.
Any help would be appreciated.

We found the blown capacitor on the main power board, bought a replacment for 40 cents, and replaced it. The monitor is working again.

If you are certain that the capacitor is OK, there could be a different problem on the main power board or even on the sub-power board. The sub-power board should have output voltages even if the main power board is defective.

Looking for info on Sylvania 6842 PEM


This RadioShack capacitor is no good - too low a voltage rating. Try replacing it with this one, or something with the same values:

This fix worked for me. Best of luck

Sylvania 6842-PEM Flickering Problem


Something is breaking down. Possibly a specific ceramic capacitor on the main power pcb that has been troublesome. Usually there is just a loud pop and the screen goes dead. If the set is less than a year old it is still on parts warranty and the technician could just change circuit boards until the problem is gone.

Flicker-Blinking on picture


Too late now but I hope you had it serviced while it was still on parts warranty. With a couple of exceptions, service on those is by major pcb replacement.
