Question about Planar PDP-42BK 42 in. Plasma HDTV

1 Answer

Black Screen One day it went out. Can press the prower button, get a green light, sometime it makes a loud pop. Got the service manual from Planar and found someone to look at it. Looks like the signal board, but cannot find parts anywhere and Planar offers no suggestions other than full replacement. Are there parts anywhere out there?

Loud noise then lose picture

The green power LED probably is merely indicating that power is getting to your TV but the internal power supply is failing as evidenced by the loud "pop".

Green Light on black screen

These units have the power supply and ballasts on one board, It's common for the capacitors on them to fail(bulge, leak, pop), those are the visual ques that they are bad, i've had good luck replacing the capacitors on this model to save them from the trash.

inspect C20, C21, C34, C37, and C36, they are all the largest caps on this board that the power cord plugs into.

Green Light on no picture

More than likely, the planar LCD sets have a set of 5 1000uf 16volt caps that fail. There could be other problems, but to check, unplug, pop off the cover, and look at the brown cannisters. They will mostl likely be bulging, or you may see blackish goo coming out of them. They're fairly easy to replace if you have experience with a soldering iron.

It is the power supply. Replace the C97, C19, and C16 Capacitors with 2.2 uF ones.

Green light blinking- no picture

This just happened to my Z50 yesterday...10 days after it came back from the repair shop! The first repair was for the "popping" problem where the tv makes a loud pop and the screen goes black. This took 6 weeks to get fixed. For this new problem the repair center is getting hold of LG to find out what to do. I am also calling them because I see this is a major problem that people have been experiencing out of warranty. The first customer service rep told me I was out of luck but I am not accepting that answer. Good luck, we'll both need it.
