Question about Televison & Video

Television made a popping sound then went out

I own a 42'' Toshiba Plasma HD TV Flat Screen Model 42HP66 that is less then 3 years old. It made a popping sound and immediately lost the picture, then after being turned off and back on it no longer had audio. I don't even know if it is repairable but sure could use some advise.

Thank you

Joy

    A professional checked the power supply (after I recieved the response) and I am told that the power supply is not the problem. He says it is much bigger (something like xy board??) and unless I sink a mint into the TV it can not be repaired. Thank you for trying.

Definately repairable.
Probably a blown capacitor on the Power Supply.
A repair of this nature is 99% labor - as each capacitor costs $2.
If the power supply has failed - it can be repaired for under $200 by your local TV Repairman.

There is definately no end-user fix for this.
You must seek the expertise of a qualified technician - there are potentially lethal energies stored inside the tv, and you're life isnt worth a measly $200 repair bill.

    x or y sustain board capacitor repair is not expensive.... in fact - when 1 goes, it is common practice to change all 3.



    A repair bill for this fix is approximately $200



    I would seek another repair shop willing to repair the boards rather than REPLACE the boards.



    Im sorry you felt my answer had nothing to do with your problem. Inappropriate ratings are reserved for answers detailing how to fix microwaves when the question was about a washing machine - or an answer with abusive language.



    Definately NOT for someone trying to troubleshoot remotely with limited information.

No picture on my Toshiba 42HP66 plasma tv.


I too have this problem with no help from hh Gregg, where I bought the tv, and no help from Toshiba. I resorted to calling the BBB and complaining about the defective workmanship. I took the tv, which is less than 2 years old, apart and found the y-sus board, behind the y-sus board is a foam rubber spacer to seperate the circut board from the backside of the screen. I think this pad is designed to prevent heat buildup in the y-sus board. The pad itself is held on by glue and that glue melted causing the y-sus board to short out. I noticed this after finding a tacky substance behind the board. The heat from the plasma screen melted this and also the pad itself. Toshiba claims no resposibility because the tv was out of warranty. Thanks Toshiba.

42HP66 - Cracked the Glass plasma screen


It is worthless. The glass itself is the sealed plasma display unit. once it is cracked it will not work correctly. The most expensive part of the set.
