Question about Samsung PS42P2S 42 in. Plasma Television
Whilst watching my ps-42p2st samsung plasma 42" tv the other day i noticed smoke coming from the back of the unit. As i scrambled for the remote a loud bang & flash occurred & the screen went blank.
I opened it up & noticed the internal fuse near the power supply connection had blown (not the one on the psu board). I also noticed that a fairchild power switch (1m0880) had blown apart on the power supply board & there was evidence of smoke residue near this. There are a couple more of these ic`s on anoher part of this board but this one was mounted with another smaller ic to a heatsink. I also noticed that a capacitor (0.022 uf ) near three transformers had been getting hot as it appeared to be split & possibly spitting a bit.
I replaced the fuse & the superseeded 1m0880 with a fs7m0880tu & the capacitor was also replaced. i switched the unit back on but no joy! the light comes on & the relay can be heard to operate but there is no picture or menu or anything. Can anyone suggest what my next step or options might be. I`m a bit reluctant to purchase a new psu board only for it not to be the problem.
many thanks in advance.

Unfortunately these boards are now obsolete, it may have damaged the bridge rectifier
