No picture sound ok
Note 1 a Raster is the name for a screen made of lines of brightness
Note 2, A Blank raster has no snow or picture, its just a lit up screen

Sound ok but no raster.
First increase tube's first anode voltage (knob on the loptx) to see if the screen is just too dark.
if after you have turned up the bottom knob on the loptx, there is still no brightness,check, for crt heaters, and EHT 25kv and focus voltage (2kv) and A1's/Screen/G2 voltage is 300-600v.
and check for field timebase (height), the next thing to check is the sandcastle pulse.
If it's present, colour decoder chip is probably faulty or lacks supply from the LT regulators.

NO LINE DRIVE If it's absent,check the line driver, locate the loptr(big and usually has heat sink).
follow the print from the base back to the driver stage , where you will usually find a tiny transformer with 4/5 pins
resolder it, even if it looks good,then with power on, check for voltage on all its pins, 2 should have LT(12v to 32v) or HT (90v to 150v), if not there follow the print back and look for either a transistor(linedrivetr), or the feed voltage line (maybe regulated),
If the voltage is ok on two of the driver transformer(drvtx) legs, the look from the base of the driver transistor to locate the timebase chip
and check round its pins for a 12v supply line, if there ,replace the timebase generator chip

Method of testing line drive, remove line output transistor, and connect a normal red led, across the B/E (longest leg to base), and when you power up the led should lite up.


Trace the pcb back from the BASE leg to find the line driver stage,
Its usually a very small transformer (4/5 legs) and a transistor connected to it,
The driver transformer legs(pins) will be two with voltage and two without
The two with power will either be about HT level (110v=145v) or about LT level(25v)
If not then trace back and look for a biggish 3w resistor.

Hope this may help you;

Regards,
VOTIT

Its not an upgrade. its a replacement for know failures.
I have had to go into stores that were selling the device and fix them before they sold them
but of course they did sell them before I or I'm sure other tech's cold fix them.
so really that is the repair if it comes with new wirestrips to connect the boards.

but if it is the plasma screen, thats not good.
it will need to be tested to determine if there is power and video output to the plasma screen

    I'm sorry thought I was on anther thread!

    OK why is a plasma under projection tv?

  • jason Oct 16, 2008

    those chip boards that are on the back of the plasma heat up from use and the plasma screens heat causing them to fail from (thermal breakdown)(heat)

If there's a sound, there could only be a broken component inside the circuity board. Normally, its just a bulged capacitor. Visually check the circuit board of your TV for any possible burned components like transistor, resistors and IC. If you can't do it by yourself, it would be better to have it checked by a pro TV technician or Electronic repair center near you. It only cost around 50$ for possible part replacement.

I can not find any kits in stock, but I know there some available online if you search or call a few places.
Mat electronics or sears parts direct may have some.

No picture or sound


1. Check All Voltages From the Power Supply
2. Check The Fuses on The Y-Systain and Z-Systain Modules
If all the Voltages from Power supply are good and no Blown fuses i would go with Y-Systain first. 75% of cases fixed with Y
Systain Module

42" haier plasma with sound and black screen!


Usually you have to be a certified technician of the manufacturer to order and receive those parts. It comes down to insurance reasons because if you were to install them yourself and the TV burned the house down and you were to perish, the company would be liable. As frustrating as it is, you will likely not get the parts. Are you saying that Haier will not provide a service technician for an out of warranty repair or at least point you in the right direction? That's poor customer service and I would think twice about purchasing from them again.

Black screen


Had the same problem. Purchased Haier 42" model 42EP24S from Sears and it broke in 1 1/2 years. Couldn't find anyone to fix it so I ordered part Service Kit: TV-3940-01 from www.searspartsdirect.com the cost was $150.00. If your warranty is up and you're okay with doing your own work. :-)

Replaced 3 boards (instruction included) and my tv is back in action.

Sound no picture


If you have the 3 RCA jack cables connected to the input jacks on the TV press input on the remote until the picture appears.

My Haier TV


Mine is a Haier 42in Plasma and the same thing just happened 12/31/07 - almost 2yrs old to the day. Picture went black in the middle of a movie. Sound works. There is power, remote will seem to turn on/off but screen remains black. What are standard repair costs that can be expected? I will call the 877 number tomorrow and will update with what I find out.
