Picture on 42'' Viore Plasma Tv

I have a 42'' Viore Plasma Model PDP4210EA that is 2 years old. 2 days ago it was working perfect until we heard a pop. Then the picture was very dim and looks almost like a negative camara film. Volume works fine and I tried other inputs such as a Dvd player and a game console but they all look the same. Does anybody know which circuit board might need replaced? Thanks Bob

    No or not much of a picture. My TV repair shop determined it was a power supply and Viore sent them to Fox International for the parts. Fox quoted 1100.00 dollars for a power supply. Way to extreme as I paid about this 2 years ago also at a black Friday special. I will look into having the power supply "fixed" or rebuilt with better parts and if I find a better solution will get back here with an alternative suggestions. Any one else had a chance to check on this?

    I have the same exact problem. After I called the Viore customer service, they told me to go to Menu - and choose the icon with the wrench and click on the option under white out to reset the TV image. The setting for brightness, etc should be 60, 50, 50, 0, 4, middle. I'm still seeing horrible images! Thru another website, I saw that if you call ESI at 818-227-1694 and tell them that you want to talk to someone about your viore plasma, they will buy you out. We've had this TV for 2 years and heard a "pop" yesterday and that was it! After I reset the TV, the Customer service rep told me to call a local TV repairman. :(

SOURCE: 42 inch LG Plasma TV - Lost picture

Our LG 50" plasma tv screen went black after a popping noise but still had sound, after great diliberations decided to take the back off and have a peek!
We unplugged the tv and tested the fuses (there were three we could see) one had blown, the one on the left as you look at the back of the tv it also has one above it. We wrote the code/seriel number down and took the fuse to the electrical wholesalers Maplin and bought a pack of 10 fuses for £1.29 replaced the fuse in the tv and everything now fine!!!!!!
Hope this might be of use to anyone whose lost the picture after a loud popping/snacking noise but still has sound.

Hi , I recently had the same problem which I was determined to fix . So I did a few weeks of research to find that it was the Y SUS board which burns out. I'm sure you realized that the TV gets hot. Personally I think this is why. circuit boards don't like heat and I've learned that the cooling fans are a joke. I replaced the board and got my picture back. I proved the fan theory because after the screen started to act up. I placed a cooling fan near the vent holes on top and the problem cleared right up,It also helps if you lower the brightness which helps out on the heat situation.I will soon be adding a fan with a temp. sensor. This shoud help if your screen has lines when you initially turn the cool TV on.then I have Some other costless solutions. Hope this helped these are great TV's and like our cars we maintain them not throw them away..................................Mr Wiseman

Hello kdmuszik,

Welcome, and thank you for using FixYa!

Your issue is with your Tuner Board. This piece will have to be replaced. All commands for picture ratio, color, and size transmit to the TV through this board. I have inclusded a link to the board you should be looking for, below.

Have a great day!

Hi , was watching my 42 inch VIORE Plasma TV last night, when I heard a click noise and the picture went immediately but the sound remained fine, I could switch channels but no picture, would you have any...

Check high voltage circuit. This is near where the 120 volt cord is plugged in and a high voltage transformer, where there should be capacitor (or two). Check the voltage - should be 390 to 400 volts. If not less than 390, near to replace the capacitor.

You likely will not be able to get the parts from LG. The Viore is made by more than 1 company. The serial number will likely help me detrmine me what company made the set.
