Question about Televison & Video
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.
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.
