No. They are entirely different. Panasonic was the supplier of the 6842PE and Funai was the supplier of the 6842PEM.

My 6842pe does not turn on. when I turn on it goes green light for couple of seconds and then red light

Hopefully only your power supply is to blame. Then you can repair it or get it repaired for a little more than $150 or get it replaced for about twice as much plus the cost of labor. If you or a repair person start testing the boards and see that one or more of them have also failed then the cost of parts and labor will go up. It looks like Encompass Parts has parts still available for this television and the power supply is $194.

I turn on tv and two second later it turns right off. no picture when this happens

I have the same exact TV and the same exact problem it seems pretty popular, but there also seem to be different answers to similar questions. Some sort of problem with the Power Supply Unit. Maybe a blown fuse or bad capacitor, thats what i am about to check for, ill be coming back here in hope of finding a solution.

We turn on our tv and it turns itself back off immediately, what can be done?

its the problem of overheating in the power supply board of the TV.on the power supply board of the tv there are few capacitors and IC.any of this ic is got short or may be due to this when you start the TV the current passes from electric outlet to the power supply board of TV.but when the current passes from that weak/faulty part at that time current gets stopped or slow and the board overheats and TV shuts off. this is a common problem faced by many other users too.the possible option to solve this issue is to check the power supply board by a meter and continuity tester and replace the faulty component on the board which is short due to which power supply board is getting overheated.its bit technical job but yes its not at all a costly repair to do or get it done by the technician. for required parts it can be easily available from local electronic hardware shop.] This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

When i turn my 42 inch plasma sylvania on, it makes a sharp high pitched squeal, then shuts off. it does this repeatedly, whats the problem, and how do i fix it?

You have a short on one of the drive boards making the power supply squeal. You will have to unplug each board until the squeal is no longer there. Which ever board it is will have to be replaced. Thanks for using fixya.

Sanyo clt 2054 dead.just a clicking sound, no picture no sound no power light. replaced main board same problem.


As there is no Power, there seems an issue with Power Supply. Might be a blown capacitor.

Do you hear any sound when you Plug on the LCD and the Button?

What i assume, it has to be the Faulty Power Supply Board. As you are not getting any power , you should have check the power supply board followed by main board .

Check the Power supply board and invertor circuit and replace it, if Faulty.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Switches off

You have a power supply problem ,most likly the main board will have to be replaced, My best advice is to call out an authorized Sylvania dealer because if you make a mistake on what board is bad, they will not take it back. Play it safe. Good Luck
