Hello,

Planars can be difficult televisions to work on. The company is really only a shadow company that doesn't have any parts or service literature.

That being said, you probably have a shorted bridge rectifier on this TV. That was more than likely the pop you heard. If you have electronics experience, check the secondary on the power supply, specifically the feeds for the X and Y SUS. Also, there are always bad capacitors in these sets, so it might have been an electrolytic capacitor exploding.

If you don't have electronics experience, and have a competent repair shop nearby, they may be able to get you back up and running again for under $200.00. But they may not guarantee it to stay working for any length of time.

Hope this helps you...

Most likely that is your Z-sustain or Z-sus board that has blown. That is a common problem with that model.

Pop sound then no picture, just sound


I assume this is a plasma TV? You will have a fuse blown on either the Y or Z sutain board, there is also a possibility one of the driver IC's has blown on the buffer board, this will shut down the screen & leave the audio working normally. You can check these boards which sit on the left & right hand sides of the screen.

Your TV mainboard is damaged and need to be replaced, the price should be around $80-190 and you can do it yourself.
