Question about Sylvania 6842-PEM 42 in. EDTV-Ready Plasma Television
TV IS LESS THEN 2 YEARS OLD AND WE GOT HOME YESTERDAY AND THE TV DOES NOT TURN. WE HAD STORMS YESTERDAY BUT I DON'T THINK THE LIGHTS WENT PUT BECAUSE THE ALARM CLOCKS WERE NOT FLASHING. I'M BEING TOLD IT MIGHT BE THE POWER SUPPLY DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY SOLUTIONS OR ADVICE ON HOW TO FIX WITHOUT HAVING TO TAKE TO A REPAIR SHOP?
The most likely the TV has a power supply related problem. The most common thing to go out is the circuit board that supply power to the screen. Commonly called a Backlight Inverter Board.
I can't say it's 100% the problem because I can't actually look at the tv over the internet.
If by chance the TV is still under warranty, go that route.
If not under warranty and If you have some electronic experience, you can purchase a Service Manual over the internet and diagnose the source of the problem and fix it by soldering in the new part. The Service Manual will give you circuit diagrams, test points, and part# lists. Usually, cost under $20.
I hope I shed some light on the subject for you.
