Question about NEC PlasmaSync PX-61XM3A 61 in. HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

NEC Plasma I purchaesed a 61 inch NEC Plasma and the power does not come on. When you turn the tv on the tv shuts off and there is no picture on the screen. I had someone come out and they said it needed a new power supply and it was 500.00 now after wasting a month of my time they say its 6000.00. It kills me after spending 10k+ and barely using this tv that the tv does not work and I have to spend my money again. Is there anyway to get the problem resolved? Any help you could give me would be greatly appreciated. NEC recommeded two companies in St.Louis, MO and they did not want to even touch the tv, the third took the tv and still doesnt know whats wrong and said it would be 6000.00 to repair. Thank you, Helen

61mp1 nec plasma keeps shutting down after 5 minutes, when switch on picture ok

Fault to the main power supply regulator section. Either it will be a separate board, or the part of main board. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts.
It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.

42 inch LG Plasma TV - Lost picture

This is almost certainly the device that sends electricity to the the plasma in the panel after failing. Bring to your local repair shop and expect to pay 300-400 parts and 100-200 labour.

61MP1 turns off after 5-10 minutes


I have a 61MP1 that wont turn on. I get the green flashing light to signal power but nothing happens with the plasma. You seem to know a fair bit. A guy in UK said he'd supply a new power board for $500 but wants my old one in return. Sounds like it might be something I can fix here. Any suggestions. Barry

TV shutting off by itself

The plasma panels operate on 170VDC and 60VDC, Sound like the 170VDC from the power supply is low or dropping low. You need a tech to look at it, the voltage sources are marked on the board and the adjustment is labeled. Typically a component such as a regulator or capacitor is leaking to cause the voltage to drop.

NEC 42mpi plasma tv not working

Check the +170 volt  test point on the power board (not the power filter board, the one that the plug comes into) but the one to the right of that board. It has a 5v test point (TP +5v) , a +170 and a +70. I've found that the +170 transformer goes bad, and won't allow you to adjust the voltage using the pot screw.

Problem with plasma tv

Something in the path to drive the other half of the screen has failed or is broken. Need some basic troubleshooting information in order to be any more specific, but I've seen this problem before with NEC plasmas. If still under warranty better use it Good luck
