Question about Philips Magnavox 42MF521D/37 Television
I have attached a picture to illustrate.
Mykids were playing with their Wii and in the middle of the game
thepicture disappeared and flashed a white screen then a black screen
andthen immediately went to this white/black/white vertical stripe
Would this be indicative of a bad driver IC? If so... where is that located on the TV?
Because of the complexity of these sets, the fault can be much more than just a bad IC. These sets are serviced at the board level. After changing the board, calibration is done as necessary.
The fault may be in the matrix power driver output area, or in the plasma screen back-plane layer itself. This has to be determined by the process of elimination.
I can tell you in advance that this will not be a low cost repair.
