50" plasma monitor goes black

I am in need of technical advice. I have a Pansonic plasma monitor, model TH50PHD7UY, which is slightly less than 2 years old. Im am on a dish with a Tivo box, and a DVD player is connected. Up until about thee months ago everything was working well. And then one evening, after the set had been on for 3 or 4 hours, the screen went black and a notation "NO SIGNAL" appeared in the upper right corner. The next night after playing for 2 or 3 hours it happen again. And over the last few monhs is has gotten down to about one hour before it shuts itself off. I checked it with DVD player so as be sure the problem was not the Tivo. Any ideas as to what is causing this problem and how it can be fixed would be greatly appreciated.ultimate audia and video 949-474-1626

SOURCE: Need help troubleshooting sudden "no signal" error

This is an issue with IC 803 on the Z board. This is a 3.3 V regulator that supplies this voltage to the slot card cage. Most input boards use this voltage EXCEPT the component board which is why it keeps playing along whike the DVI, HDMI, or composite signals will cut out after warm-up.

This is a surface mount multi-pin IC and is a bit tricky to replace.
The entire board is PN# TNPA3198xx with suffix determined by what model 7 series plasma you have.

This was a problem from around Nov. 2004 to Mar. 2005

You need to have your television tuner tested for faulty components. Your problem is caused by the components in you tuner overheating and losing functionality. The tuner need to be thoroughly test and repaired. You can reach Panasonic customer support at this telephone number. 1-888-843-9788. They should be able to tell you what the problem is and where to take it for repair. I hope this information helps you with your problem.

SOURCE: Techwood 42inch plasma

black line probl;em with this model is caused by dry joints on the resistors that are attached to the individual ribbon cables. a fairly easy fault to repair. but it means undoing all the screws and resoldering the resistors. once the back of the tv is off, locate the offending resistors and resolder them,Take the two screws that hold the ribbon cable assembly and gently lift out the ribbon cable. just use a hot enough soldering iron (mains or portable gas) and watch the solder 'flow' attach the ribbon cable. if you're careful, you can test to see if the fault has been repaired prior top replacing the cover. (make sure there's no pets or children nearby and be very carfeul as there's live mains within reach. once you're happy the fault has been repaired, put the cover back on. Its worth resoldering all the resistors just to save the fauklt reoccaring anywhere else. dominic :-)

How do i fix my lg plasma tv that has screen filled with multi collored vertical lines abd screen showint three bands of color green, light green and purple?

If you have to ask this, I assume you don't have the kills to repair a plasma TV. Then please don't start this. Opening it can be very dangerous, and without the technical skills, you even don't know where to look for. Most to the time I advice to visit ifixit, but this time they don't have the manual or video for LG. Perhaps they can show you some openings. But they never show you how to rebuild.
They can help with spare parts. So if you really want to do this yourself. On your own risk:

Sir I hava a plasma television Pansonic TH-42PV70M and the display cracked during transport. Any solution to repair. The pansonic agent in India,s Engineer comment is not possible to repair because 90%...

The tech from India is fairly correct. Newer TV's (LCD, LED, Plasma) have most of their cost in the screen. In fact most companies will straight up replace a broken panel TV rather than fix it because its more cost effective. I would advise you do the same and get a new TV. Sorry for the bad news!

try and bend the set slightly. IF line goes away suspect ribbon cable connector from x driver boards to panel. The connectors brake away from panel and thus a replacement panel must be installed.

A couple of days ago my Zenith z50x2d plasma started acting up. Fort some time now it has had red pixilating dots when there is a signal being inputed ( only in black areas) and now it is sort of...

This is common on these and most I have seen can be solved by replacing the y sus board. You are seeing miss firing pixels,you will notice that the warmer the set is the better it is. Small capacitors on the y sus can be located and replaced some times too. Nothing wrong with your inputs though. If you are technical and have good soldering skills ,I can guide you further.....the set is made by LG ,so you can cvall a shop with that experience as well and expect maybe a couple hundred to fix

Samsung less than year old, sound but black screen

lizau2011, This is probably a premature failure in one of the power supplies inside the unit. If unit is under warranty you need to contact the Samsung people to get it repaired. Bye for now. louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel

Sony FWD50PX2 Black Plasma monitor

Same problem - my warranty is for two years, so Sony repair is coming out to fix it. Last time it made the clicking noise they had to replace the main power supply board. The problem this time might be something else. Check your warranty paper to see if you too have a two year warranty (on-site) and check the sony web pages for a sony repair center near you.

Cracked glass on front glass

if the tv turn on this will tell you that the plasma panel itself is ok. if it is ok then the fron glass is replacable. this is just a standard piece of glass so i really wouldnt spend tons of money hiring someone else to order one and install it.
