Question about Zenith Z50PX2D 50 in. Plasma HDTV

1 Answer

Loud pop - no picture

Purchased TV 11/05 - Heard loud pop 9/07 and TV went black. Am waiting two weeks for an appt., as we do have, thankfully, an extended warranty. However, reading all of these posting on this particular set, I am disgusted. Who knows what went wrong and how long we are to wait for parts after our two week appt. This is so wrong!

Re: Loud pop - no picture

Your X and Y circuit boards are bad. It might require the replacement of the power supply as well. This is not uncommon for LG/Zenith plasmas to have this issue. Not a do it yourself repair.
