Visio 42in. Plasma TV

The TV is a Plasma, it does not have a "BackLight" as it were, that is for LCD's only.

Vizio are fobbing you off. It will need either a Y-Sustain & Buffers or a Z-Sustain.

42in Vizio black screen, no sound

I had the same issue happen to my vizio lcd just this weekend. Everyone is telling me is a bulb or backlight or something. It would explain the loud pop and no picture, but I'm not getting sound either so I'm not sure what exactly happened. Only after about 2 years too. I'm trying to find parts to just fix it myself.

Plasma tv picture went black

I would say you dont need to repalce Servcie kit.kit is only for 42EP24S units.
examine your unit What is the problem?Is the blue indicator on?If indicator on you will have audio.
In this case I would check first Y-sus board or Z-sus board.

Good luck

Blue screen on everything

Blue screen usually means no signal coming from the source. Did you accidentally hit the 'source' button on the remote, so it is now set to the wrong device (DVD player instead of the cable, for example)?

My Haier TV

Mine is a Haier 42in Plasma and the same thing just happened 12/31/07 - almost 2yrs old to the day. Picture went black in the middle of a movie. Sound works. There is power, remote will seem to turn on/off but screen remains black. What are standard repair costs that can be expected? I will call the 877 number tomorrow and will update with what I find out.

Phillips 42in plasma lines ocross screen

Are the solid horizontal black lines or colored lines. If colored lines there is a posibility that your Y-main, and upper and lower Y-buffers are bad. If black you have a bad plasma panel.
