Question about Zenith P42W46X 42 in. Plasma EDTV

1 Answer

Picture flickers in and out. I tap on the tv and it may stop for hrs or minutes. It seems to stabilize after I rap the case at the front "Z" decal emblem on the front of tv . I have checked and it does this with all inputs. It sometimes does this so bad its like a pshycadelic dance club in dark room from the flashing, but then can hit it with my fist slightly and problem stops

Check ur antenna connection ....also all other connection u have connected....make sure they are have a firm connection...if problem stays faulty get ur tv to repair shop......
it looks to me u have a loose connection inside ur tv what needs attention from a technical repair person....with tapping u will make the fault even worse in the long run

Every time i turn on my sony PFM-42x1 the screen flickers and blinks with colored lines all over it. at first it flickers very fast and as the tv "warms up" the flickering slows down until it stops all...


I have the same TV with the same problem. I am sorry that all the answers are so silly and basic. I just open up mine to check all the compositors to see if their are any Bulging or to see if anything looks damage. I will pull the Power supply and start checking the compositors. and let you know. I will look in other places first to see if I can get some REAL Answers. Poco Zocko Actor

Sony pfm-42x1 flickering screen when turning tv on


OKAY I found the Problem!! Bad Caps Compositors. I Proved this in 2 ways. First I took off the Back(always make sure the TV is UNPLUG) In the photo above I put my finger on the capacitors. I found some that where NOT FLAT ON TOP(You can kinda see in the photo too). I could feel a little nipple on top.(Some times you can see if their busted open but not in this case) so I felt them and the bottom right and top left area in red in the photo where not flat. I took my dryer(My wife really) and warmed them up for about 2 minuets each then another minuet rotating back then forth. I leaned the t.v. up to lean on the frame and plug it in. I continued warming the capacitors up and in about 2 Min the T.V. has stop blinking. Much better then the 20-30 min. So the hunt for the Capacitors is on. It will be some work to get the boards out. If everything is done delicately The Soldor job is easy for me. I am going to buy the 8 but replace 1 board at a time until the TV works and put the other on the side for next time or put them up on E-bay. I hope this helped Please like if this helped you. ea0a96a3-fb82-4ec0-89f4-76b4080e9c6e.jpg 1b190ebd-5d69-4553-a009-840d29ab4c87.jpg ab9b51d0-6e1d-4cce-b822-e80d0fde9163.jpg

Vertical lines showing up after being on for awhile


Eh, I can't be too sure, but it sounds like it's either a heat issue, a signal issue, or a backlight issue. Either way, if it's still under warranty I'd send it in.

Ln55c650 keeps flashing bright to dim very fast after about 30 minutes of being on if i shut it off for a few minutes it goes away til about 30 minutes the picture never goes away just gets bright and dim...


I had the same issue occur on my ln55c650 (screen flickering, not the actual image but the front lights flashed which was too distracting) and they had to replace the power supply pc-board. Seems some issue with power module in the TV rather than the side panels. Luckily for me, TV was still in warranty.

Screen has started to flicker constantly. tv is 9 months old. When switched off flickering stops for about 5-10 minutes and then starts again

Our 4 year old Westinghouse LTV32W3HD starts to fast flicker in color after being on for 20 minutes or so. This condition cycles for a time before stabilizing. Can this be fixed for a reasonable sum?


Try running the TV with the back removed, it should run longer before flickering appears, more likely to be bad LCD controller, I fixed my scrambled picture by installing heat sinks on the ICs on the LCD controller, http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/LTV-32W3HD/

this happens because of panel conditioning. as the panel ages it requires different voltages to produce the picture.it takes about 1000 hrs before it has conditioned. it is a simple adjustment a tech can do for you. when this adjustment is made no other adjustment will be needed for this problem.

Picture Flickers Briefly Shortly After Power on


If the set is only a few weeks old you should put a claim for a warranty repair or exchange I believe is the back light(lamp)doing the flickering and should not be doing that at all and it will not go away by itself,it might get worst. Let Us know how it goes or if you need more information.
