Question about Zenith Z50PX2D 50 in. Plasma HDTV

After 20 months old and now dead

Same problem that several people are having. The tv worked great then Pop! no video. I have yet to waste my time with either manufacturer or place of purchase until I investigate this issue further, but sign my up if anyone decides to file a complaint against Zenith/LG for this highway robbery. We have very low hours on this television, maybe 6 hours a week. So, 20 months would probably equate to 15 months for regular tv viewers.

Re: After 20 months old and now dead

I purchased this tv 2/06 and it went POP in 04/07. Less than 60 days after my warranty expired. Went back and forth with Zenith for several months. I refused to take NO for an answer. Customer service stinks and you have to be very persistent. They eventually agreed to fix it. Repairs cost over $2000 and I have my tv back. Next time it breaks just going to throw it out. Zenith sucks.

Check the circuit board and look for cold solder joints or cracks in the solder.

My Vizio TV (less than 1 year old) has green/red vertical lines on the left side when first turned on. They go away in 10-20 minutes.

Hello. If your POP (Proof of Purchase like store receipt) is less than 1 year old you have to contact Vizio immideately and setup appointment for authorized technician in-home service.
You might have problem with LCD Panel (or plasma whatever you have) that result of manufacturing defect and reveals itself only after several months of use. You still covered by manufacturer's warranty and you don't need to pay anything to get your TV fixed or replaced.
After warranty expiration replacing a panel generally cost more than buying new TV.
Act as soon as you can and don't try to fix anything by yourself.

I think you chose a Westinghouse Lemon, go this site and read all of the negative reviews of this model;;page

Here's just one of the reviews;"best chunk of aluminum i ever had the fortune to buy"by stevecox25 on June 11, 2009-->
"Horrible customer service on a worse television" by westinghousecrap on March 20, 2009 Pros: Good picture once it is properly adjusted.
Cons: Low quality audio, had the TV for 10.5 months and the picture went out, sent the TV at MY expense to TX, and I've been waiting for 2 months, and customer service can only say that there is a "delay". And they don't send a new TV, it's a rebuild.
Summary: Please don't waste your money on this TV, spend a little more on a different brand and save yourself the headaches I've had. I'll never purchase a Westinghouse product again. Customer service has been no help, and their answers are vague at best. Learn from my nightmare, NCAA march madness on a old 19" TV because my Westinghouse quit working 2 months ago and they still haven't replaced it.

TLX-04244B Ploaroid. Had it for 4 months and it stopped working

If you have no LED lights it sounds like at least the power supply board is dead.
Since it's less than a year old and under warranty, you should return it for repair/exchange.

8 month old Symphonic 20 inch lcd tv turns off itself every 3-5 seconds

these sets that shut down or turn themselves off after a few seconds usally have a bad backlite board in them. look closely at the screen and see if one section looks darker than the rest of the screen (top middle or bottom - top seems most common in my cases). some times if you put the tv on an unused input you can see the variation of light level on the screen, but don't get confussed by looking at the screen from too great of an angle. thanks ......techman 580-243-8025
