Question about Sylvania 6842PE 42 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television
Sylvania6842PE M (Monitor only). I moved this unit and when I plugged it into the wall at its new location something popped inside and it will not power up. The green standby light goes on. When I push the power button a relay clicks inside and the yellow power light comes on for a fraction of a second before it goes back to the green standby light. I took the back off as my local supplier only gave me a 30 day warranty and noticed that a green LED flashes on one of the power boards. It glows steady for the fraction of a second the front yellow light comes on. I checked and read 15V on this powerboard at one of the connectors marked 15V but it was only there when the yellow light was on. I cannot see anything damaged although the pop could have been the sound of a capacitor exploding.
I just wanted to make sure this issue was resolved. I see no activity on it since the end of December. Let me know

Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Initially, to my understanding, it is required that plasma TV units when unplugged/power removed should allow sufficient time to dissipate whatever stored electrical energy is present inside, otherwise power supply failure is imminent.
To your concern, you may want to check out this site for possible board replacement.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

IT might be blown capcitor
If a capacitor blows out, then it is probably having a higher voltage
on it than it is rated for. You don't say what the voltage rating was
for the original capacitor or what the voltage rating was for the
replacement. Did you try to measure the voltage in the 10 seconds
before the replacement blew??
