Question about Sony FWD50PX2/S 50 in. Plasma Television

2 Answers

Sony fwd50px 2 loud pop, no picture.

Hello... i just bought this tv on ebay about a month ago. i turned it on one afternoon, and it was on for less than 10 minutes before a very loud, almost glass breaking sound happened and my picture disappeared. the sound still works, but no picture. tried turning it off and on....disconnecting power and such. i have been reading many reviews from others with this same model, and it isnt a rare happening...there are several instances of the exact same thing happening particularly in this model. seen as the tv is new to me, im kinda freakin out. due to how many people have had this same experiance, i was hoping someone could tell me what the problem was, and what needed to be fixed or replaced??? i dont have a warranty, and want to get it fixed ASAP and would appreciate any information.

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 you open up the TV, you may find a bad part stick out like a sore thumb.
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.

My zenith plasma tv popped real loudlike a car backfiring and then the tv picture went black. power on green light wil turn on but it automatically cuts itself back off to the red light


There's an over current fault in the power supply or the Y-sustain convergence board. The loud pop was either a capacitor or pico-fuse breaking from excessive current overload. Sounds like 2 or 3 mosfets have shorted at the gate ends. Plasma TV's always have this problem because they generate too much heat and the components cant take the load conditions. Make your next TV an LCD...

To fix this problem have your local repair shop do it for you.....

any questions please ask.....

My sony bravia has mixed colours on the left side and sometmes only black screen with some coloured lines?? bought 1 year ago, without extended warranty?? takes about 10minutes to warm up, and then OK....


If its less than a year ago, Take it back, to the retailer, as there is a statutory 12 month guarantee on the majority of goods in the UK. If its older than 12 months, you could try having a look inside the back, may be its a dodgy connection from the main AV board to the Screen, disconnect the connector have a look for any undue signs, and reconnect it at both ends. Failing that, you may have to bite the bullet and take it to a TV repairer for them to tell you its a Dodgy AV/RF board, which are now obsolete, or you may be luckier than me. If that is the case, try looking on ebay for AV board for you TV model/make. Hope that helps a bit

Tv turns on w/pic then pic dissapears light blinks 4 times


I have the same issue, we've had to change our bulb three times in less than two years. now we have 61" expensive paper weight. Our current bulb is less than 6 months old. The TV is only 2 years old and like i said this is our third bulb.

the blue light blinks 4 times. you get sound. then a few minutes the the picture returns... then it goes out, and the cycle goes on.

A solution to this would be greatly appreciated.
