Question about Sylvania 6842-PEM 42 in. EDTV-Ready Plasma Television
We have had this tv for just under a year and when I went upstairs to use it, it wouldn't turn on...it tries but when you push the button the green light turns on then a second later it turns off and the red standby light stays on.
Most common problem is a ruptured capacitor on the main power pcb. It can be seen as ruptured if you know where to look. It has to be replaced with a special type of capacitor or it will quickly fail again. If its less than a year old it is still on parts warranty.
