Question about Zenith Z50PX2D 50 in. Plasma HDTV

3 Answers

Dark screen While watching TV there was a LOUD POP and then the screen went dark. I immediatly turned the TV off. The next day I contacted a Zenith recommended repair shop who dianosed the promblem at $2000.00 to fix. Of course it is out of warranty by less than 60 days. The picture does come on but is very dim. From the other Post a Problems it sounds as if Zenith has a real problem and will not admit it! I'm throwning this thing out and buying a reputable brand. Some one who stands behind their product.

Most likely problem is the ZSUS board.

I'm throwning this thing out and buying a reputable brand. Some one who stands behind their product. And who would that be? By the time you pick a brand that brand will have sold out to the Chinise and you will have another peice of crap!

My zenith plasma tv popped real loudlike a car backfiring and then the tv picture went black. power on green light wil turn on but it automatically cuts itself back off to the red light

There's an over current fault in the power supply or the Y-sustain convergence board. The loud pop was either a capacitor or pico-fuse breaking from excessive current overload. Sounds like 2 or 3 mosfets have shorted at the gate ends. Plasma TV's always have this problem because they generate too much heat and the components cant take the load conditions. Make your next TV an LCD...

To fix this problem have your local repair shop do it for you.....

any questions please ask.....

Your TV mainboard is damaged and need to be replaced, the price should be around $80-190 and you can do it yourself.

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.
