Dear sir,

Code 53-54 means 2 fans on the behind of your Sony are not working.
This could effect the code 12/22.

Hint :

First fix the 2 fans.
If they're working , see if the code 12/22 has gone too.

If all the fans are working .... all 5x codes are gone !!!
If the code 12/22 is still present ..... the Sony turns on and off again and again.

In this case it's NOT the power supply unit !!!!
But you need to replace the X-SUS & Y-SUS print-boards inside your plasmascreen.
Located on te main printboard on the left and th eright side.
Replacements will cost arround the € 150,00/$ 100,00 for both boards.

Dis-connect the cables from the boards and un-screw the boards.
Replace the boards and re-connect the cablas and screws.

Problem for code 12/22 has being solved !!!!

Hi, I also have this problem, 12-22, the fans sound like only some are running, so I will try replacing the fans before I buy new X-SUS and Y-SUS boards. where do I get new fans from?

Sony pfm 42b1 negative picture


I have a Sony PFM-42v1 and it does the same thing, look in your tv menu for picture inversion, usually under screen saver. What it actually does is reduce the chance of screen burnin. By reversing the image it sort of resets the hot areas, brightest colours and the cooler areas being dark colours, switches them around ( negative ). This cools the hot spots and heats up the cold spots.

There should be a option to turn it off, mine and I guess yours as a default is ON, mine has the ON, timer and OFF options.

Hope this helps, please let me know if you need more info.
