50" Plasma Screen Popped

13 months after my purchase I was watching it and all of a sudden it just popped and the screen went black! Since I had not extended warranty no place will work on it. So basicly I have a 300lb paperweight. i found a guy in the local PennySaver, who is coming next to look at it and says he does fix them. He says it will be a $60.00 fee to come out and diagnose the problem and if he is able to fix it he will apply the $60.00 to whatever his fee for fixing it. He thinks in might be one of the 4 power supplies. so we will see.

Re: 50" Plasma Screen Popped

Seems as though this is a very common problem. I have the Z50PX2D, purchased from Circuit City on 11/29/05. I took the time to register the TV online at the Zenith site. The TV "popped" the other day and now has no picture. Sound is ok and I can change the channels. Decided to call Zenith/LG as others on here have done. Explained the problem to the young lady I spoke with and she put me on hold for three minutes after taking some info. When she came back she said that my warranty would be extended to cover parts only; I would have to pay for labor. She also provided the names/numbers of three local repair shops. I chose one and she said they will fax the paperwork to the shop on Monday, 12/24/07. I will contact the shop on Wednesday (after Christmas) to arrange for repair. I will follow-up here on exactly what was replaced and the labor cost.

Why does my samsung plasma 550 have no picture?

It sounds like a capacitor blew in one of the internal circuit boards. A capacitor makes the pop you described, and techs actually refere to them as "being popped".

Hi, I have an Insignia 50 in plasma television that all of a sudden went to nothing but vertical lines, then popped a cuople of times and went black. Sound is still ok.Enybody have an answer for me as to...

this is a buffer issue.

do the line go through the menu if you display the menu when the lines are visible?

do the lines go from the top to the bottom of the screen or stop halfway there?

do the lines change colors?

if the lines go over the menu and all the way down to the bottom of the screen, then its a buffer issue, top and bottom buffer.

hopefully it's just halfway then you only have to replace the top buffer, less money to spend.

Our Lg Plasma 50PC1DRA popped then a very dim picture

If you have the same problem with another input such as a DVD player, this TV might need attention by a qualified service technician.

Same problem. Was watching my LG 50PC3D, then a loud pop noise

Replace the y-sus board located on the right after removing the back panel.

That problem is the Ysus board, Sometimes people will replace the Zboard at the same time. If you bought it at costco a couple of years ago you are in luck costco will refund your purchase price, costco has changed the return policy and newer tv's are not refunded, but something to look into
