Question about Sylvania 6842PE 42 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television

1 Answer

After i turn on tv- it turns off right away by itself

I have sylvania 40" plazma tv which i bought in 2004
model #: 6842PE. Technician said that one of the board
is bad, the code bar sticker of this board has the number:
DM200445070266, but when i go on internet to find out
the price and punch the model #, code bar #, i get the
answer that no such part exist.
what is the part # of this board?
when i called "sylvania" tech. support they say they will
e-mail me but they never do,
also, the other technician said this part # is: 996500030228
and cost is about $600, which makes this unworthy to fix.
so, can i get this part # and advise who can get an fix the board
instead of buying the whole brand new board?
thank you, andy bartkowski
there is also engraved on the board;
***'y code: LJ44-00068A
PS-423-SD V3.1 Rev.01 20031030

That board has the Sylvania part number 1EDM10583 and the price is about right. It might also need some adjustments after installation. Sylvania has no circuit diagram for that board. The TV was assembled by Panasonic and also was used in a Magnavox model. Panasonic may have had the power board designed and made for them by someone else. A technician would have to have some very good luck to repair a board like that without a schematic. Sometimes board rebuilders like PTS have the capability of repairing a board like that. You just have to ask them.

Turn power on and it goes to standby

You may want to check the power supply. This is an internal power supply so I recommend you take the unit to a qualified technician.
