Good luck---Philips (who makes this) only has schematics etc available online to authorized service centers and unless parts needed can be replaced with generic parts they do not sell any individual parts---go shopping on the internet for the board--should have a number on it.

its actually very simple.If you can set-up a new computer you can do this too. It is just a bunch of connectors and screws. Take a picture of the wiring and then reinstall them one byone.

This is a common problem on Sylvania Flat Screen TVs (I have seen a lot of TV with this same problem), It is usually caused by a failure on the Power Board.

A new power board will cost about $150 - $190 USD. If you have experience on electronics repair and want to fix it by yourself, you can get the board through ebay or any online store.

A TV technician may charge about $280 - $ 400 to fix this issue (includin parts).

Read the user manual for warranty information. If the TV still under warranty, contact the manufacturer for assistance on repairs.

Sylvania 6842thg has wavy colored screen. Board or CAP to replace?


The main power supply regulator section circuit fault. Either it will be a separate board, or the part of main board. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts.

It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.
