Question about HP PL4260N 42 in. Plasma HDTV

1 Answer

Hp pl4260n Basically ive had this tv for about 2 years, the board went out, was left with audio and no picture. I called HP and was told that they wanted the $629 plus tax for repair. I told them they had copious problems with said board and they replied "your serial number was not included in the batch that was labelled defective, your tv is out of warranty, there is nothing else we can do". This tv sits in my sitting room, virtually never used. I am not happy and will never ever buy HP again, ridiculous response.

Picture went black but you could still hear the movie


Hi- My PL4260N stopped working after about three years, the audio worked but no video at all. The TV worked fine until one day...no more picture.
I found out that the YSUS and ZSUS boards in the TC fail alot...BUT you can get new or repaired ones off of EBAY...
First check for failed components (burned, loose, bulging, etc.) if nothing obvious is failed then check the fuses on the YSUS, ZSUS, and power supply boards...usually if a board has a blown fuse the board needs to be replaced...get the part number and search it in Google and eBay and you will find options for replace/repair.
Mine had a blown fuse on the YSUS board...I got it fixed for $75 through coppell TV (they are on Ebay)....
Now my TV works fine again!
Good luck.

My hp 42" PL4260N has sound but no picture. I


I had a similar problem with my 42 in Philips LCD HDTV.



Here was the problem. My Power Supply Board had several bad capacitors. I opened my TV (warranty was expired of course) and found four bulged capacitors. Many electronics companies were sold capacitors that failed in 2-5 years instead of 10-20. The capacitors fail prematurely due to a lack of preservatives. Unfortunately, they were installed in all sorts of devices and cause a wide range of failure problems.


Here are some options for you.

1. Have it fixed by a professional

2. Open your TV and find PSB. Check for faulty caps. If you find some (bulged or leaking) bad caps replace the entire board.

3. Remove and then replace individual faulty caps. This takes some soldering skill.

Caps are inexpensive and if you can take care of it yourself it will save you hundreds.


I have a tip/tutorial on this site that may also help. It gives step by step instructions for replacing caps on PSB #715t2432-2. If this is your board you are in luck. It's called: Fixing the Philips Turns/shuts off on its own problem.


Hope this helps and Good luck.

I have hd picture but no sound, tv says hdmi audio unavailable


I called Verizon and exchanged my STB from a QIP 6416 to a QIP 7216 and it solved the HDMI audio problem. This looks like the fix.

The problem is the "Y-SUS" board. It is inside the set on the left side with several aluminum heat sinks, under the left side brace bar. You can order this board from Union Electronics at www.ued.com .Search for part number: TNPA3243AB-PA

It lists for about 115$

Black Screen, can hear sound though


I learned recently that, since I purchased mine with a VISA card, VISA automatically doubled my warranty to extend it to a second year. Hope this helps someone else.
