Question about Planar PD42ED 42 in. Plasma Television

1 Answer

42" Planar Plasma turns off

Our T.V. decided to turn itself off by itself last night and refuses to turn back on. When the power button is pushed, either on the set itself or the controller, it turns on but then immediately turns itself back off - no sound, no picture. This is repeated each time I push the "on" button. Any suggestions on what the issue could be or is the thing just a goner. It's about 4 years old by now. Add'l info: it's actually a computer monitor, but unfortunately I don't have the model number. Any help is appreciated! Thank you

    Forgot to mention... tapping on the unit didn't do anything, as I read an earlier post.

Recently my 42 inch sansui plasma has refused to power up when prompted by remote or pushing the button.This problem began approximately 3 weeks ago.At that time when I attempted to turn it on it stayed on...

I would look for a power supply from or if you can't find then repair the ps, look for bad caps bulging or open and ousing out.

Tv turns off will turn on then off right away

the internal overload sensor is engaging to protect the system. The parts cost to replace the faulty board is about $70 But you need the skills to open the tv and change it I recommend you get a professional to do it More expensive of course but a lot safer.

Samsung pn50a450 plasma TV turned off by itself

first unplug it for 10 min then retry it. otherwise it is the power supply, the low voltage and high voltage supply are on the same board, have your tech send it in to be rebuilt if he is unable to do it him or her self.

It is the power supply. Replace the C97, C19, and C16 Capacitors with 2.2 uF ones.
