First I would make sure you're on the "media" input setting. Then if it still won't read, I would try a generic thumb drive without the software and see if that makes a difference. Sandisk has added software protection that is hard coded into the thumb drive and it may be interfering.

SOURCE: DELL W2600 NO 5VSB OR RED LITE WHEN PLUG IN, HIT PWR BUTTON ONE TIME YOU GET 5VSB BUT NO RED LITE, THEN HOLD PWR BUTTON IN TILL YOU HEAR CLICK, THEN REHIT BUTTON AND TV COMES ON WITH BLUE LITE ON, NEV

This sounds like a very common issue.

If set is hard to turn on (takes several tries)but will eventually turn on hereis what my guess would be.

Every set has a standby power supplythat is running 7/24 if the set is plugged in and it supplies voltage to theremote circuit that turn on the main power supply for the tv and hence turn theset on.

This is an area where companies cut corners by using lower rated voltage caps.By this I mean Standby usually provides under 10 volts to trigger the seton----what they do is use filter caps rated at say 10 volts max in a circuitwith 9 volts (example)=with the standby on all the time the filter caps(electrolytic caps) dry out and fail.

The problem usually begins where you have to turn set on or or two times andgradually gets worse--takes longer and more tries to get it to come up.

Once on it will stay on until turned off for a period of time.

The caps will begin to work better (regain some of thecapacitance) as they get hot--hence one it is on it will seem ok.

The beauty of this problem is most of themhappen when set is a year or two old (no warranty) and all you have to do islook at the top to locate bad ones.

They are generally black or blue and round and vary in --they have twoconnections each--a + for positive and a - for negative--not unlike a batterywhich in a way they are. The + and - are marked on top and bottom of most boards.

They are easy to replace and not expensive parts.

The tops are silverand metal looking with creases on top and if bad they will be puffed up ontop---tops must be perfectly flat with no brown material leaking top or bottom.

If this is your problem once you id them (make a drawing) you can begin.

Here is the critical part---on each cap is also marked the value like 220uf 10vdc---220 micro farad at 10 volts maximum.

If you find for example 6 puffed up and all are 10 vdc replace them with thesame value capacitance (like the 220 uf) but go up to at least in this case(from 10 volts) to a 16 or higher rated voltage cap.

The only issue is when you go up in voltage rated value the cap is larger sosometimes there is an issue of physical space for the replacement on the boardto fit them in.

The reason they cheapen these sets in this way is if 10 caps and you make25,000 sets there is a considerable savings in parts cost.

They do not care as long as it lasts past the usual one year parts warranty.

I have taken the time to be long winded because this really sounds like it maybe the problem you have.

See attached photo of a typical cap and if you have questions or need advicelet me know.4_18_2012_3_37_31_am.jpgpuffed up caps like these are bad.

Hi. I have a Zenith Plasma TV Model:Z42PJ240-UB. I power on the TV with my external DVD attached via RCA Connectors. I can hear the sound coming from the TV but I have a blank or black screen.


Yellow is the video connector.. if you don't have a yellow connection on the TV, try the red, green and blue till you find one that works. You might also need to change the input to get it to work.

My Zenith plasma TV blinks green 4 times then goes red, No picture. None of the Capasitors are blown.


I had AWFUL customer service. (Sherry is DREADFUL her # is 1-877-543-8325 she is in"executive services". Ask to speak to her directly...if you would like ZERO help.)

They WILL NOT extend the warranty, even though they know there is a defect with this AND other models. Zenith name on the front...LG guts in the inside.
Ours turns on, screen black and then clicks three times and then turns back off.

Hi. I have a Zenith 42" plasma TV - Z42PQ20 that's


I had this exact problem on my TV, everything said it was the power board. It wasnt, luckily i was able to return that board. It was the YSUS board.

I should have done this this first but this is how i verified the old power board was good. Unplug TV, take the cover off and disconnect the wire harness going to the YSUS, plug TV in and turn on. If led stay blue its the YSUS.
