    If you are looking for information for a Philips 42PF9630A then most likely you would need information from Samsung in Korea since most of the Philips plasmas have Samsung panels in them.

We have a very old small television which we would like to know the year it was manufactured please. The serial number is: FE 8560125. It is a National brand and will probably be in the region of 30...

Here is a breakdown of info for your tv.
National TV was part of the Panasonic Matushita corp. up until1988 when it was renamed Panasonic.

You tv was made in June, 1985, FE related to which model and plant it was made at, and the serial number tells the date and number of the device.
85 is the year.
6 for the month.
And, 0125 means that it was the 125th tv manufactured at that plant that month for that model.

If it is still working, then you are veryblucky, as most of these were never made as an export item out of Japan, except for a few that were made for New Zealand and Australia.

I hope this helps you out.

Good luck to you, and have a good day.

I have a LG 42PC3D-UE that is about 4 years old. Recently I changed the plasma panel because it cracked also cahnged the address buffers in the bottom. Now the TV powers on and the screen is showing purple...

After 13 months of ownership (just past the warranty expiration) my LG Plasma TV developed a serious problem. These include picture degradation, shutting down at random, screen lines, color degradation and others. We systematically applied solutions such as switching cable locations, using different cables, trying a variety of power supplies (basic strips to battery backup) and nothing seemed to help. We observed the TV in different modes and kept having the same problems whether we were using the Set Top Box (cable), the DVD player or the gaming system. One observation stuck out form the rest - the problem did not occur when we were watching a black and white movie. But as soon as the film ended and we switched to a color movie, the screen popped and went blank.

I started researching the issue on-line (thank you Google!) and after some trial and error with search terms eventually discovered other plasma television owners with similar problems - some have been kind enough to post pictures and videos that allow me to see the same problems as my plasma TV. Further investigation revealed that a common culprit appears to be the Y and Z Sustain Boards. These circuit boards are akin to the vertical and horizontal deflection circuits of older televisions and are at the heart of creating a picture on the screen.

Unfortunately, the Y and Z Sustain Boards (more simply called the YSUS and the ZSUS) are a serious weak point in ALL plasma televisions. Do a Google search for problems with plasma televisions or problems with these boards and your search results will light up with hits! Information about problems with these components span years of plasma manufacturing and cover a wide variety of brand names. The worst offender seems to be LG - especially since they manufacture these boards as components for many other brands and have been doing so for many years.

Doubly unfortunate is that this problem seems to be rampant in the plasma television industry yet no one seems to know about it. It does not seem to be a safety issue (no fire hazard, etc.) so the Consumer Product Safety Commission has no information on it, it is a standard component of larger items with no particular brand involved, so the Better Business Bureau has no records on it, and the issue is spread out and technical enough that the average consumer seems to be unaware that it is such a large issue. How many plasma TV owners have to have this problem before it becomes general consumer knowledge?

In other words - this is a KNOWN ISSUE with plasma televisions yet it has somehow fallen through the cracks of consumer knowledge and the plasma manufacturing industry is certainly not be\ringing to anyone's attention.

A call to LG customer support was less than helpful. The customer service representative on the other end of the line had no information on this issue (even though it is quite common). I knew more about the inner workings of my television than he did. The LG warranty does cover the "Panel" for a two year period - and these components would appear to be core to the "Panel" - but the service rep I spoke with could not provide me a definition of what is included as part of the "Panel".

To put this in perspective, my family once owned a Sony Trinitron for nearly 20 years before it was replaced and our former primary television (still in service) is a nearly decade old Sharp CRT unit. Neither of these units developed the problem this LG Plasma is having and neither ever needed to sort of repairs (both dollar and labor wise) that this plasma unit needs. So yeah - this is big deal. When I spend the kind of money necessary to purchase a product such as a television, I expect to get more than 13 months of service out of it. I intend to get this unit repaired or replaced and I do not intend to be the one paying for it!

My panasonic viera plasma TH-42PX80U will not come on. tried plugging tv directly into wall, no go. someone somewhere suggested holding power button down for 10 seconds, did that. no response with remote,...

You will need to count the number of red led blinks on the power indicator, if it is at least 10 then replace the power supply it is faulty, In my years of servicing panasonic Plasma, power supply failure is about the most common failue in this class of television from this manufacture.

Top half of screen blacks out

Today, after speaking to the Sansui Manufacturer representative from Japan. He stated that all you need to do is to turn off the closed caption from the TV remote and not the DVR remote. Black screen can occur at the top half or the bottom half of the screen depending on how it was originally setup during installation. Try this and hopefully this fixes the problem.
