Question about NEC PlasmaSync 42MP3 42 in. Television

1 Answer

Blank Screen My NEC plasma just went blank a couple of days ago. The green power light is on but it intermittently goes red as though it is on standby and then goes green again. All the while the screen is blank. For a few weeks before there was a thick band at the top where the screen went fuzzy but I thought this was a problem with my cable tv - now I am thinking it was the TV all along. Can anyone solve my problem ?

Re: Blank Screen

Hi Gemma - have a look at this forum - it may be similar to what you are experiencing. Things don't look good for NEC owners I must say! Good luck Saty.

LG 26LG30 screen suddently went blank. Light flashing blue/red

There are two places to look for the problems, the backlight inverter board and the power supply. Look at the power supply first since it is easier to get to, look for burnt parts, bad capacitors, etc.
Please post back what you find.

Fujitsu plasma screen went blank and the LED light which generally shows green (on) or red (off) is blank (no color) as well.

Usually when these develop a fault you will get flashing LED codes. If you are not getting any the power supply may have failed completely.

Try another cable and socket in the first instance and ensure the manual power switch feels normal in action.

Trys to power up makes Buzz, then nothing but light stays green.

those vizio plasma have a lot of problems, its still most likely the Ysus board, but it will have to be tested to know for sure. If you bought it at coctco you are in luck, if bought a couple of years ago they will give you a full refund. you can try replacing it yourself by checking or ebay
