There's a good chance you have failing electrolytic capacitors either in the power section or the inverter section or both.
Any caps in these sections that look bulged at the top, or bulged/leaking at the bottom (look for discoloration of the circuit board around the base of the capacitor) need to be replaced.
If you repeatedly turn it off and on, eventually it'll probably stay on, but every time you turn it off, the unit will get harder and harder to start up until one day it just won't.
Sometimes you have to do the opposite to start it up and unplug it for some time and then try again.

If you aren't tech savvy, don't worry, read the rest of this solution and watch the videos.

If you are handy with a soldering iron and can identify the power supply and/or inverter / FM section for the backlights, an inexpensive handful of capacitors will likely fix you right up.
Match the capacitance on the capacitors. Go over voltage if you can, and still have them fit.
IE - it's not a bad idea to replace a 10V cap with a 16V or 25V or even a 50V, but don't replace a 680uF cap with a 500uF or a 1000uF (unless you are SURE it's only doing supply output ripple filtering,
and even then, you should go OVER, not under the uF rating).

Most of the caps that go are 10V 1000uF or 3300uF.

I found some great videos of the procedure (for many Samsungs with the same issue) on youtube.

As you can see, this issue spans plasma TVs, as well as large and small LCD TVs and monitors, amplifiers, computer power supplies and motherboards, and other electronic equipment.
The parts are cheap, and skill required is minimal.
A great parts source is Digi-Key, and you can order the parts online at www.digikey.com
They typically cost under a dollar a piece plus a flat shipping rate.
The parts usually arrive one business day later.
If you watch the third video, you will see that even someone with no soldering experience can perform these repairs as demonstrated by the woman in the video.

I have a Nec Plasma Sync 42vp4g/s Monitor. I have connected only a video RCA on VIDEO 2, but the monitor is turning to black ( the stand-by light is still green ). Sometimes it makes some flashing showing...


Your video input on VIDEO 2 via the RCA jack is most likely composite analog signal (good old
obsolete NTSC), and the Television may be in High-Def mode, therefore not looking for, and
not understanding anything but an HDTV (digital, ATSC) signal.

My Philips plasma only shows half the screen. The other half is just blacked out.


This model has PiP (Picture In Picture), find the button on the remote or check manual, this mode is most likely turned on and is being shared with one of the AV channels, or try turning on a plugged in SCART device to see if this picture shows on the other half of screen.

Check the power board for capacitors with the tops bulged up. They are 3300uf 10v. There are either 2 or 4 of them depending on your set.

NEC plasma sync 42mp2 vm2g


If your referring ot an outside antenna or cable, your set does not have a tuner, it is a monitor style. You will have to get a converter box and use the video input ( yellow) (red/wht-audio) on the tv, or the component input ( green, blue, red ) on the tv, provided, the box has the output for it. Most cable boxes have these and the antenna dtv converter boxes do not as far as I know but look into it.

NEC PLASMA SYNC 42MP2 STANDY BY MODE?


According to the manual for "POWER/STANDBY indicator is blinking in red":
  • "The temperature inside the main unit has become too high and has activated the protector."
  • "Promptly switch off the power of the main unit ans wait until the internal temperature drops."
  • "If the monitor becomes too hot, the overheat protector will be activated and the monitor will be turned off. If this happens, turn off the power to the monitor and unplug the power cord. If the room where the monitor is installed is particularly hot, move the monitor to a cooler location and wait for the monitor to cool for 60 minutes."

Plasma wnt stay on


I have had this problem in some models of plasma sets before. In most cases the power supply and main drive boards had to be replaced. In a small number of cases the failure was the screen itself.

In all cases, the cost of the repair was expensive. For the screen failure, the set was scrapped.
