Re: toshiba plasma flat panel model #42dpc85

If you are getting audio but no picture it could be a bad panel or the digital board. Ensure you have all of your connections properly seated and if you're still without video, I'd look at getting a service center to take a look at it.

Can i access netflix using toshiba model 42DPC85?

You cannot access netflix using a toshiba model 42dpc85. You would need an xbox, wii, roku or something like a bluray player to connect to the television in order to access netflix.

Where is the cable port to put in the back of the tv

The 42DPC85 is erroneously refferred to as a television when it is in fact a monitor; ie. it has no built-in tuner. You will have to connect a VCR to the monitor and use the VCR's tuner for cable or antenna viewing. You may notice that the monitor does not have any 'channel' buttons.
The remote that comes with the monitor has 'channel' buttons but they are for external devices.

Toshiba 42DPC85 Picture Went Out - BLACK SCREEN!

This is a common problem on these plasma TV's. The problem resides inthe high voltage boards known as the X and Y Sustain boards.. You canpurchase them here for a very reasonable price:

The above link is to a Y-SUS board. The X-Sus board is often the 2nd cause of failure and can be found here:

Totest which board is failing, you need to check voltage input to theYSUS board first... Input should be 120V from Power supply, outputshould be above 250V.. Do this test with XSUS disconnected. IF 250+Vexists, then XSUS is damaged. If not, then the YSUS is the faulty part.

Hitachi Plasma TV model P50H401

I think you have problems with the digital main PWB.

If the power PWB failed, turn off and change the pilot ligth to red.

Toshiba 42dpc85 plasma monitor

I bought my Toshiba 50HP66 50" Plasma a little under 18 months ago and about four or five months ago it began to act strange. It would put a block of characters on the screen that made no sense until I would unplug it and and restart it. Then it would act normal for awhile and would just need a reset every so often. I was out of the 12 month warranty so I just put up with it.....until yesterday. I was watching the TV when out of nowhere, I heard a really loud POP....and then the screen went dark. I went ahead and bought a new Sony LCD screen and was going to sell this for parts online. I troubleshoot electronics daily so I thought I would purchase a digital copy of the service manual and check it out. After I downloaded it I noticed that this is very common with plasmas (this exact failure) and only on the LG boards. I scanned my handy dandy service manual and found out that Toshiba was using these same boards along with Zenith and some others. The difference is all the other manufacturers honor their product and replace these boards even when the warranty has expired so I called Toshiba and tried my luck. Even though I've found many postings of Toshibas failing and hundreds and hundreds of the exact same board failure...Toshiba claims to have never heard of it. I informed the "Customer Support Supervisor" of Toshiba that I would be willing to post this on a few websites and have other customers contact him to inform him of this issue. He was fine with it so here is his contact information so feel free to let him know your Toshiba plasma went POP as well.
800-631-3811 ask for Dave Thompson and let him know.
