Question about Zenith P60W26 60 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television

1 Answer

Zenith P60W26P beeps and won't turn on until next day.

This plasma screen will not show any video if it starts beeping. The unit will turn on after several hours (8+), but it won't turn on again once you turn it off. So, basically, I only get to turn it on once per day.

It says no signal when im playin my ps3


The first solution is to do a audio/video reset.
  1. With the PS3 off, press and hold the power button and continue to hold until you hear a beep. At that point, you could let go and within a few moments, the unit should power off.
  2. For this next step, it's almost identical. After you've completed the first step, it has beep and powered down on its own; press and hold the power button again and this time listen for two quick beeps. At that point, you can let go.
  3. Now one of two things will happen; either the unit will bring you to the recovery menu with several options or it will restart. If it brings you to the the recovery screen, you'll need to connect your controller to the PS3 with the USB cord and choose option 1 (restart system) and go to step 4. If it simply reboots, go to step 4.
  4. At the first screen it should ask you to confirm your audio and video settings. Choose the correct settings, and you should be set!

Turn unit on & nothing happens - Does not show selection bar, just blank. Next day it works fine. Next day turn on & nothing again - Has not worked at all now for over 8 days ????? Looks like...


There's a good chance you have failing electrolytic capacitors either in the power section or the inverter section or both.
Any caps in these sections that look bulged at the top, or bulged/leaking at the bottom (look for discoloration of the circuit board around the base of the capacitor) need to be replaced.
If you repeatedly turn it off and on, eventually it'll probably stay on, but every time you turn it off, the unit will get harder and harder to start up until one day it just won't.
Sometimes you have to do the opposite to start it up and unplug it for some time and then try again.

If you aren't tech savvy, don't worry, read the rest of this solution and watch the videos.

If you are handy with a soldering iron and can identify the power supply and/or inverter / FM section for the backlights, an inexpensive handful of capacitors will likely fix you right up.
Match the capacitance on the capacitors. Go over voltage if you can, and still have them fit.
IE - it's not a bad idea to replace a 10V cap with a 16V or 25V or even a 50V, but don't replace a 680uF cap with a 500uF or a 1000uF (unless you are SURE it's only doing supply output ripple filtering,
and even then, you should go OVER, not under the uF rating).

Most of the caps that go are 10V 1000uF or 3300uF.

I found some great videos of the procedure (for many Samsungs with the same issue) on youtube.

As you can see, this issue spans plasma TVs, as well as large and small LCD TVs and monitors, amplifiers, computer power supplies and motherboards, and other electronic equipment.
The parts are cheap, and skill required is minimal.
A great parts source is Digi-Key, and you can order the parts online at www.digikey.com
They typically cost under a dollar a piece plus a flat shipping rate.
The parts usually arrive one business day later.
If you watch the third video, you will see that even someone with no soldering experience can perform these repairs as demonstrated by the woman in the video.

My 42" Zenith plasma flat panel television model


You can check the va, vs adjustment, but alot of plasmas does this, my first thought would be the y sus board, it also could be the panel which is not worth fixing, if it is really bad, check voltage and if this isn't out then Y- board is the next thing to check.

Solution for error 1, 5 beeps,

For video data transmission from the Media Receiver to the PDP-434HD
and PDP-504HD-series Plasma Displays, digital signals are used.
Therefore, this unit adopts the HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content
Protection) system for copyright
protection. This unit is also provided with a detection switch (TRAP
switch) that will prohibit the unit from being turned on again "if the
upper plate of the unit is accidentally opened," in order to prevent
the panel technology from being leaked out.
The TRAP switch is disabled while the unit is turned off. When
performing internal diagnosis of the PDP, fix the switch to the OFF
position using adhesive tape before turning on the
unit. After servicing, be sure to remove the adhesive tape.


Well you've probably guessed what my next question is......How do i
unlock this receiver?. I'm told that it's simply a matter of keying in
3 buttons of the remote in a defined sequence. I have the service
manual but it doesn't say much about unlocking.

"The next generation of Blu Ray players will be equipped with
powerful explosives that will kill everybody in sight if the unit detects
possible tampering or if someone puts a DVD+R in it." )

( They use a photocell to kill the DVI board if light hits it
(as in the backboard removed). The TV continues to work, but not in
HD.
bypass the Pioneer's switch, or put black tape over the photocell.

Black bar


On a non H.Def plasma, there is a PCB that runs along the bottom of the screen that is attached to the screen by a several brown/gold colored flat ribbon cables. I've seen where this ribbon cable is not seated properly in the jack. The ribbon cables are generally responsible for that section of the screen. Next possibility is the PCB itself is defective.
Not to scare you, but the plasma screen itself is a possible suspect.

Zenith plasma


dont get mad like i did, report this problem to zenith, they seem to be aware of the problem with this particular model.
i gave them the model number and they requested the purchase date, then extended the warranty and gave a number for a local repair shop which came for my set a couple days ago.
so far so good. it may be a while until i know whether the repairs will work, however hats off to zenith, so far, which seems to be providing appropriate customer service and standing by their expensive products.

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.
