Repairing BN96-00249A power supply in an Akai PDP4294/Samsung

I also have a Samsung TV with the BN96-00249A board. R2 is burned beyond recognition. I looked at the schematic and am a bit suspicious because it is listed as 0.5 1 Watt. This set does not have a 1 Watt resistor, definitely smaller. At the beginning of the manual (the one referenced earlier in this thread) there is a parts list which for some reason does not have R2 listed so I can't double check the value. Thanks for any help on this. Mark

The high voltage power supply for the plasma display has failed. It may or may not be on a separate board that could be replaced the owner. If you find a separate board, it may have its own fuse which you could check for continuity with an ohmmeter.

No Picture on PDP4294

Normally the sets have seperate power supplies for the input/main logic board and the HV which drives the panal (could be 2 parts on the same board). It sounds like you have a problem with the power board that drives the panal and HV. Check to see if any fuses are blown, if the fuse is blown, you can try replacing it, but if it continues to pop, then the main fets that drive the HV are shot and will need to be replaced.

Will not turn on, only blinking green light

It is a rough gamble to speculate but if all you have on the PS +5v and +3.3v it's obviously toast.. It would help at this point to have an adjustable dc supply and scope now to trace yest the remainder of the set but for the cost of a good scope you could buy the Tv new... Just going to have to go with your instincts on this one. I could add that usually in lcd cases where the supply has failed it's simply isolated to the supply.
Good Luck!

The Power Supply Board is listed below. Please note, there are 2 models with the same beginning number (PDP4294). Verify your model number before selecting the Power Supply Board as each board is different depending on the model number.

No picture ; no sound

the red blinking light usually has a pattern that gives you a code to the possible problem.
Maybe you have a bad power supply board. You have to open the panel and do a few tests on the power supply's outputs to be sure.
It produces a variety of voltages for different parts of the tv ie. the plasma display panel and the audio system. The components supplying power to the audio system may have failed a year ago and recently the pdp.

plasma tv's are expensive to repair, most of the time you can get a better tv for the same price. You can reduce that cost by learning and troubleshooting it yourself.
