Question about Sony PFM-42X1N 42 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television
Have Sony 42" Flat Panel TV (PFM-42X1/42X1N) Turned TV On and was working fine when there was a click similar to the click heard when turning on the tv. The Green light remained on as if the TV should work but the picture disappeared. I believe a bulb is out but the manual doesn't say anything about specific bulb information. Am I on the right track?
Flat panel TV's typically do not have "bulbs," but rather backlighting. Plasma displays are especially touchy during movement. I would suggest checking your warranty status, as it's probably not something you can easily repair. If you wanted to take on the repair yourself, be careful not to lay down the screen, as it will drastically shorten the life of the Plasma display. I would start with checking the system boards for possible damage, since you did hear a "click," It was probably a fuse, chip, etc.
