Question about Electrograph Systems DTS42PT 42 in. HDTV-Ready Plasma Television

1 Answer

No picture Last night I woke up to find I could hear the TV but could no longer see the picture. I tried resetting the cable box and then the whole system. I get power to the TV (the green light comes on but it goes through a series of flashes before going steady) but now I don't get sound either. The TV is less than 1 year old. I had tried pressing different buttons on the controls so may have made it worse.

No picture but can hear volume

Try unplugging the TV cable from the mains and leave it off for a few hours. The longer you leave it disconnected from the mains ( i recommend overnight) the better the chance it will reset the TV.

When you switch the TV on, try pressing the SOURCE button until you get a picture from the cable/sat box or whatever connected to the TV.

If this fails you may have a problem with the power circuit board. This will cost approx £150 for parts and labour from you local TV repair man.

Good Luck

52" plasma tv - turns on - and I hear something reset inside

i hear a clicking noise- the clicking noise is most likely you ballast trying to power the lamp, but failing. this may indicate a defective ballast if you have recenty purchased a new lamp.I recomend you have your lamp tested to help narrow down the cause of the defect. It's highly unlikely for a new lamp to be dead on arrival
