Question about Televison & Video
I'm too tired and over worked to reverse engineer the connectors and was hoping that someone already had done the work. I want to skip the PWM-PSU on the PCI controller board and use an external PSU instead. As soon as I can I'll try to replace the whole PWM-PSU inside the 1820m with serially regulated supply voltages, as it's as horrible as it can be to see how ugly what comes out of the internal regulator, now that the caps are on their last legs.

I had the Same issue. on a 50PF9431D/37 set. Many Plasma Set's use a LJ44-00118A PS-505-PH Power supply from Samsung. Known to have this common problem. If you can, or have a friend that can Solder components?. Unplug your set remove the back panel & locate your power supply. It will be the PCB in the center of the set just above the Video/Audio connections. http://www.shopjimmy.com/power-supply-unit-lj44-00118a-from-philips-50mf231d-40.htm. Is a Link to a photo of the PCB. Make a note of the locations of all cable connections then unplug them all. Un-install PCB, Check all Fuse first. I believe their is 5 or 6 of them on the PCB. Then replace the two 3300uf 10v 105C Radial capacitors at C8060 & C8059. Look to see if the Caps are deformed and or split at the top. The location of the caps are in the Lower bottom edge of the PCB. A local shop may Carrie them if not, digi-key has them. Part # http://search.digikey.com/scripts/DkSearch/dksus.dll?Detail&name=493-1754-ND. Total cost was $7 with S/H.

Double check all the connections from the AC line and from the power supply to the other circuit boards. The connectors you are mentioning are identical as per the picture below.
If you need a new power supply, you can find one from this link.

No, the voltages are just fine. The fault must be either in the PMW itself or in the HT transformer - and the only way to fix that is to replace the entire inverter board.

I am a TV repairman and I have repaired TV's almost everyday for the last 30 years. And I know from experience that if an electrolytic is warm on the top of them that they are starting to go bad. My suggestion is this: Take the one's that are warm out and if you have a capacitor checker, check them to see if they are weak in capacitance. If you don't have a checker the best way is to replace them. It will be worth the effort to find out. I very often, take capacitors out of a spare board (not the same) and use them. I am assuming you are referring to the power supply as the main board. The capacitors that are in line with the voltage to the inverter is 24 volts and they sustain the voltage and keep it up under a load to light up the backlight. You could look and see that some boards put the voltage by the pins on the connectors and this may help if it does in this case. However, the inverter has switching circuits to produce the high voltage to the transformers on the inverter to light up the backlight and if they don't turn on then no backlight. Inverters are highly intergrated so replacement is best. Also there are fuses on the inverter labeled F1, F2 etc. Check them for continunity. It the fuses are open then you for sure have a bad inverter board.
