MY Plasma Zenith TV went "POP"?
For those of you suffering with the loud POP and dead syndrome on this model the "guest" comments here are correct. The Y-Sustain, Z-Sustain and both the upper and lower Y-Drive boards are usually replaced at the same time to prevent any damage from taking out the Y-Sus and Z-Sus boards a second time. You might like to know that the original part numbers for both the Sustain boards have been changed since original manufacturing in an attempt to prevent this problem from happening again and these parts are NOT cheap.
Y-Sus - p/n# 6871QyH039B - $337.74
Z-Sus - p/n# 6871QzH044C - $244.68
Lower Y-Drive - p/n# 6871QdH089A - $132.48
Upper Y-Drive - p/n# 6871QdH088A - $132.48
Above prices do not include shipping or sales tax if applicable.
Unfortunately techs have little voice in trying to get the manufacturers to correct these problems before the warranty runs out - knowing that after warranty repairs are going to be met with quite some resistance when it's coming out of the consumer's pocket.
Also, for reference, I've done about half a dozen of these and all have been under some warranty or extended warranty. Labor was approximately 6.5 hours so you can plan to spend roughly $1400 - $1600 for this repair..
Thought maybe if I posted here it would help a few find the answers they were looking for..
