Question about Sony FWD-50PX2 50 in. Plasma Television

1 Answer

Flicker screen I have a Sony 50" Plasma Display. Model: Sony FWD-50PX2 When I switch the screen on it begins to flicker with a dull white background as if the screen has a snowy white dull display. If I press menu then you can see the icons lit up but also very dull with a tick sound coming from the Horizontal and Vertical sync circuit board. Can someone pinpoint out what components causes these problems.

If any buffer board is faulty, this kind of fault can occur. Might have a panel fault too. It will be best to contact any service technician, to make it confirm. If you wish to get more details, check this link. Selecting the view option, either to Mosaic / Time slide, can be selected by the drop-down list, at the top left of the display window, will make surf easy. You can also do a search, by type in the brand name/model number/IC used, in the search box at the top right of the display window.

This set does have a video problem. If it was bought locally, then, the retailer may have a 30 day return policy. If bought online or cannot be returned, then, contact Sony, for a service center in your location: Either way the set is to new to have a problem and you should get it resolved as soon as possible.

Picture flickers and clicking sound coming from back of t.v.

The Z-Sustain should be suspected. Visit the site named 'Electro-help' for more details. Click this link. View it in "Timeslide" or "Flipcard" option, which can be selected from the drop down box menu by the [Sidebar] tag, at the top left corner of the display window. It will make search easy. There are more than 1200 posts to different brand TVs now. Pull up older posts there. Faults to almost all brand Plasmas will be the same as they are all built on similar chassis. Refer any one. You can get details.

The screen just went off. i can still here the sound but no picture. now when i turn the tv on it clicks

Power supply. Contact Vizio support, and they can point you in the right direction.

the VizParts people are the official parts suppliers, and they also have better pricing than anyone else on the web from what I've seen.

Swapping the power supply is pretty easy.
