Question about Planar PDP-42BK 42 in. Plasma HDTV
TV was on and running, made a "pop" sound and picture went off. Sound can still be heard. Black screen only.
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...
