Hitachi 42" plasma TV all of a sudden death. Power failure, no lights on the front panels. No signs of life.Found solution through my very honest repairman called Johnny's TV Repair in Hollywood:

There is a kill switch to protect against power surges. Located under the bottom edge nest to where the cable goes in the body, all you have to do is press it back in and voila; LET THERE BE LIGHT and probably save yourself a min $200 trip to the repair shop. Of all the places my friend called non mentioned this switch so next time you have TV problem and can't fix yourself go to this guy if you're in Los Angeles.

Fuzzy picture, color and volume comes and goes


the main chip in the TV that controls all these options (sound - sharpness etc...) you will need to bring this TV into a repair shop - the transformer that blew up caused a voltage surge that fried this chip

Belkin f6c750-avr repair / Testing


You could be correct on the transformer. I'm kinda leaning towards a bad cell in the battery. Sounds like it will need replacing.

There is a good chance that the failure is in the main power supply. 
A second chance is that the set is protecting itself from a failure after the supply; this is more likely to occur in the horizontal section where the highest power consumption occurs. 
If the failure is in the supply, it could be a fairly reasonable cost repair. If in the horizontal section, depending on whether the failure is limited to a $10 horizontal output transistor or a bad flyback transformer. The transformer should still be available but with markup, shipping and installation, the cost could exceed the $100 US mark.
Generally, I have been recommending folks repair their old standard definition sets, buy a converter box for digital TV, and not dispose of them since the flat panel sets are dying like flies, often just after the warranty expires.   This would at least provide some kind of set when the expensive LCD or plasma sets go belly up.

TV won't go on after surge


Don't think you'll find a reset button. The surge has probably taken out the transformer inside the TV.

Repair shop says Flyback Transformer needs replacement


If you know what you are doing, and you have a good (de)solderstation, you can repaire it yourself, but you don't know if it for sure the transformer. since you did not find the problem yourself, suppose you replace the transformer and your TV does not work !? Even when you repair it yourself, the repair guy shall charge you the cost for his time (I don't know the exact english word for his time checking the TV). And I suppose there is a warranty for his repair. So...

Will be watching tv and it goes black..red light flshes on front(power)


There sounds like a bad connection, and or a heat related componet breakdown. I have seen mostly on this model number, bad connections on or around the flyback transformer,the horizontal driver transformer, the sweep power supplies, and or the main power supply. If the regulator IC is intermittant, or has a bad connection on one of the leads, it will cause this problem as well. Please if you have no solid state repair experience, seek out a pro to assist you in this repair. Good Luck Please do not forget to rate this thread.
