JVC 42X776 Plasma Screen partially broken

My wife brought home this tv from work because they were just going to throw it out... "Good Wife" I said. Anyway....

I turn it on and the bottom left quadrant remains black. Some lines start to appear and creep across the screen. There is also a black patch in the middle that has absolutely no pattern to it. The best way to describe it is "flower shaped" I can change inputs and access menus. It locked on my one time and I had to do a hard reset (aka pull the plug). So, I'm thinking it overheated at one point and fried something inside?

I'm going to take it apart and look for some smoked ICs. ANy other suggestions?

    What can I do about a defective panel?

  • JPSBMW325I Oct 09, 2008

    So further diagnosing the issue: The bottom half of the screen has massive red snow and some black. It is more concentrated in one area than the rest of the panel. I
    played with all the tunable pots and I could make the screen change,
    but nothing got better, although I did tune some of the black away, so now its all snow. After doing some research I found out that
    there are 2 boards, an upper and a lower that drive the corresponding
    halves of the screen. There is also a main board that builds the power
    I'm guessing and the upper and lower boards do the DSP. So, my
    question: The DSPs on the lower are getting extremely hot (all 4 of
    them) and the TV actually shuts off after a while (I'm guessing
    overheating). Does anyone know of a common failure on these boards?
    There are not any obvious blown caps or ICs....

Plasma TV smell?

a smell from a plasma is usually a electrolytic capacitor leaking.  Luckily, replacing capacitors is very easy.  you can do it yourself if you have any skills at all, and if you can identify it.
just google what i am saying, you should be able to find the info you need to replace them.

Plasma Screen Repair

No it is not fixable, wouldn`t it be nice if the manufacturers would include this in the owners manual ? Your wife is not the first to do this by any means, windex and other cleaners are very caustic to these panels and should never be used. the entire "panel" has to be replaced and it`s the most expensive part in your set, I`m sorry to be the bearer of bad news but at least you now know and won`t repeat the mistake, BMW Rider
