Haier Plasma Tv

One day when I was watching tv the screen just went pitch black but the sound still worked! Should I pay sears 150$ to look at it and tell me what might be wrong with it or should I just trash it and buy a new one? I know nothing about Plasmas

    I have a Haier 42 inch model HP42BB. The screen just went all blue and "no signal" is all it says when I press any button on the remote control. Nothing else works on the control except the volume. Help.

If this is the 42EP24S TV the repair is quite easy - remove the back cover and replace 3 boards and an EEPROM, replace the cover and then program the set via the remote control.

If you can get the repair kit (TV-3940-01) from SEARS, get it.

You can get a kit (6871VSNB03E) from Rich-Tech for $198 plus shipping. It does not have the EEPROM though.

Haier TV model 42HP25BAT


Harish.......If you've lost both audio and video you'll probably need the upgrade kit. If it were just video you could get by for sometime with replacing the slow blow fuse on the s-zus board. Check your eprom chip on the digiatal board to see if it appears burnt. If so it may have fried. If you'd like the service manual I'll need your email address

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.

Brand new & busted


My TV didn't have a crack, yet it still didn't work. Haier has a rotten product out there. I got mine from Sears, and Sears won't support it...especially if out of warranty. These guys should have had a recall on this product. Instead, they give it some kind of cute name like "service ticket" or some such nonsense. It's a losing battle. The TV is trash. Cut your losses. Don't put anymore money into that unit. Do yourself a favor and buy a Vizio, Sony, Samsung, etc. Don't buy anything from Sears or Haier again...It will save you great pain, expense, and heartache.

Haier Plasma TV problem


My experience with a Haier Plasma 42EP24S is that they have weak software chip that goes bad and can cause a number of symptoms from picture with no sound, will not recognize video inputs, or my current problem tv turns on and off irratically.  This is the second time i have replace this chip, which is the socketed chip on the vga/component/dvi input circuit card.  Last time i had this problem i ended up fixing it myself because sears took over 3 weeks and still could not figure out the problem.  I am working on obtaining this chip, probally get about a dozen so if anyone thinks this may fix there problem as well i my have some for sale.  michael@malobicky.com of Malobicky Digital Systems.

You need the upgrade kit - make Sears come out and order it for you - they know all about it, claim that the monitor should have been recalled. Mine was out of warranty, however I convinced them to fix the TV.
