Question about Fujitsu Plasmavision PDS-4209 42 in. Television

1 Answer

How do I get captions with a Fujitsu PDS-4209 plasma TV?

Fujitsu tech support says the TV is just a monitor, and captions need to be displayed using another device. I have Dish Network, but they don't respond to my request for information. The dish remote doesn't have a caption button, nor do captions show up as an option in any menu. And advice is appreciated.

Fujitsu pds4209u-b 42 plasma

Chances are the PDS4209 has a broken axis board. I don't think the 4203 has the same board. I don't think the 4203 compnents can run the 4209

Black screen after 5 minutes of use with Fujitsu PDS-420 plasma

Sorry to inform you my freind, but the main board has to be replaced in this beast. Could get expensive. there are no schematics and or componets listed to repair this module. Its a board level repair only. Try going to, find their phone number, and see if they repair these boards. if not you will need to contact the manufacturer for replacement boards. good Luck Please do not forget to rate this thread.,

Fujitsu Plasmavision pds-4208 Display randomly hey everyone =D any help would be greatly appreciated! this is my problem... i have this plasmavision it has been working fine since i got it, now all of a sudden the picture will just disappear, as its only a display unit and I'm running my audio thru my home cinema system. its an intermittent fault but its been progressively getting worse, sometimes a sudden display change will cause it to stop working, a total display loss with no osd... however green light continues and the psu still carries on operating with fans going... until a couple of minutes when it will shut itself down and display an orange light for no input signal. Ive had the psu out and tested all the connections as i have the service manual but no schematics. when the unit is fully operational all output voltages are correct but a few which maybe a volt lower or higher than stated. however when the unit stops displaying a picture, the x and y sustain outputs drops its tension... only one connection does this on the CN49 on the Ve pins for both x and y sustains the tension drops from nominal 16v to 4.2v i have removed the sustain connectors to power up the psu and funny enough... without the sustain boards connected the pin has only a 0.2v output this is really confusing me now. Its a bit of a bummer too as i have no schematics to follow *puh* am i right in thinking this is solely a psu problem?... or maybe a faulty digital board?.. seeing that the display shuts itself off due to no signal? or could it be a faulty sustain board? does anyone know whats going on or had this problem before? kindest regards to all...
