SOURCE: My samsung plasma suddenly made clicking noises and tuned off

I wish to tell the world about the simple cheap fix for your plasma! . Please let me know if I helped. I have a 50" Plasma that deicded after a year it didn't want to turn on anymore. It just blinked red LED. Which made me see red! It took me a year to find this inexpesive fix I hope this information will be helpful to you.... These are spendy items and none of us were thinking that after a year (seems like a scam to me) the TV just won't turn on anymore.... Then they say your no longer covered under warranty or you are and they send you to some repair shop 1-2 hours away and always and I mean always tells you the part is on back order.

Lukster is right it is a power supply problem. However you don't need a new board nor do you need to pay someone a ridiculouse abount of money to fix this. I fixed mine for 40 cents.

You more than likey have bad capacitors.
Unplug the TV from power. Remove the back cover. (some models require a star srewdriver) You power supply board is right in the center. A bad cap is bulgded or raised. A good one is flat. caps have an X on the top of them. More than likely you will see a bulding or just straight raised edges on the X on the top of the caps. Cap 3300uf 10v is the ones you are looking for. Once you find them replace them with 3300uf 16v caps. If one cap is not raised replace it anyway. These caps need to be a higher voltage that why the tend to pop. 16V is plenty, don't go any higher in voltage than that.

The caps need to be soldered on. You have 2 options do it yourself or unplug all the wire harness from the board then unscrew the board take your power board (dont forget your new caps) down to a pc repair or tv repair and have them solder them on for you. It will take less than 10 minutes. I do recommend putting the board in an anti static bag. You can buy these caps at radio shack or buy them on ebay.

After you get it repaired replace your board plug all power supply wire harness back onto the board (I recommend numbering the wires as you remove them), replace the back panel cover. Plug her in and fire her up. and BAM it works. then turn it on and off a few times in complete amazement at how simple and inexspensive this was to do. Then get angry cause your repeated calls to tech support was wasted breath.

SOURCE: 42 inch plasma wont turn on

I may have the fix.... Fixed two of my 50 inch plasmas that stopped turning on 1 year after I bought them. They both wouldn't turn on.... LOL Just gave me the black screen of death and a red blinking LED when I tried to turn on. I have pics and step by step instructions. Your time and under 40 bucks is what you'll need. I fixed both my sets for 80 cents. You can fix yours too.... I too got the it would be better to replace it than to have it fixed lie told to me too. I held out to the bitter end. Glad I did....

SOURCE: samsung plasma 50in PS50B550 clicking noise

The clicking could be a loose connecction of the power plug or frrom the main power unit of your TV. Remove your plug and see the ends for burn outs, if so clean and use a different outlet. If not open the set after disconnection and check your main power supply unit for loose connection particularily in the surge protector, the main capacitor, the main drive, diodes or connectors. Wait to hear the sound and use a long insulated rod as a probe to confirm the origin of the sound. Solder or replace the damaged item. Hope this helps . Good day

I have audio but no picture on my Zenith Z50PG10 50" plasma tv?


Plasmas are like tube TV's(CRT). Once the plasma tube breaks, air gets in, plasma gas gets out. And that's it. They are an enclosed vacuum picture tube. I don't know why people buy plasma. The newer LED have a much better picture. Rich people who swear by plasma, are ridiculous in my opinion. Again, if plasma tube breaks, thats it. Any wrong jarring can break a plasma tube.

Something short circuit with its circuit board. you must have through knowledge in electronics, and work experience to do repair work to this Plasma TV. As you know, plasma TVs are the latest technology devices, and a mere knowledge in electronics will not help. It will be best to get this set repaired by any experienced service technician or by the authorized service center for Zenith at your town. [Short circuit protection circuit energized, and latched the relay, not to supply voltage to damaged circuit board is the problem] The click sound you heard was the latch sound of the protection relay.

My Zenith plasma TV blinks green 4 times then goes red, No picture. None of the Capasitors are blown.


I had AWFUL customer service. (Sherry is DREADFUL her # is 1-877-543-8325 she is in"executive services". Ask to speak to her directly...if you would like ZERO help.)

They WILL NOT extend the warranty, even though they know there is a defect with this AND other models. Zenith name on the front...LG guts in the inside.
Ours turns on, screen black and then clicks three times and then turns back off.

After warm-up screen flashes and loses color but comes back on and off intermittidly. This is a 50" Zenith Plasma tv. thanks.


Sounds as if a cable connection is bad. Check the cables first. If cable are good, change inputs, if cables are bad replace cables. If it's component, make sure that red, blue or green didn't come loose on both sides...the tv and the source. If you still have problems, check for red video noise on the screen itself, preferably when it's on but with on input (black) If you notice this, your plasma is failing.

Hi. I have a Zenith 42" plasma TV - Z42PQ20 that's


I had this exact problem on my TV, everything said it was the power board. It wasnt, luckily i was able to return that board. It was the YSUS board.

I should have done this this first but this is how i verified the old power board was good. Unplug TV, take the cover off and disconnect the wire harness going to the YSUS, plug TV in and turn on. If led stay blue its the YSUS.

MY LCD TV MAKES A CLICKING NOISE, THEN SHUTS OFF ALMOST IMMEDIATELY AFTER IT'S TURNED ON.


The clicking is from the power board relay. It has detected a fault and shuts off. It may be a problem with the power board or one of the other boards is loading it down. Better to have a tech look at it.

Wall mount for 52in tv ?


Here is a mount rated for your size TV http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/518312-REG/Bentley_PLAW_6000FB_PLAW_6000FB_32_60_Flat_Panel.html

Also, be VERY careful mounting ANY plasma above a fireplace. Plasma sets are typically convection cooled to avoid the noise of fans. The heat from a fireplace will GREATLY reduce the life of the set. When people I know insist on putting a set above a fireplace I usually insist they install a cooling fan with ducting that will vent fresh air to the set. If you are concerned about the temp of your set simply consult the owners manual for operating temperature and measure the air above the fireplace yourself. BHphotovideo.com typically has good prices on mounts along with amazon. most other places like bestbuy or circuitcity will stick you on the price of the mount because they make their money from accessories. Also, why did your last set die? plasmas are typically rateed for 10+ years, did yours over heat and start to change colors?
